Beyond Brilliance

Of all the four c’s cut, Colour, clarity, and carat weight, it’s the cut of the diamond that has the greatest influence on a diamond's appearance.

Diamonds are renowned for their ability to transmit light and sparkle so intensely. We often think of a diamond's cut as shape (round, heart/oval/marquise, pear), but a diamond's cut grade is really about how well a diamond's facets interact with light.

Precise artistry and workmanship are required to fashion a stone so its proportions, symmetry, and polish deliver the magnificent return of light only possible in a diamond.

We like to use diamonds with a cut grade of very good or excellent at McLean & Co Jewellers to maximise a diamonds brilliance.
