Dahl Jewelers, Woodbridge, VA
Diamonds, Diamond Proportions

Diamond proportions comprise six of the twenty major items affecting how a diamond performs. Diamond proportions are table percentage, depth percentage, crown angle, pavilion angle, pavilion depth. Think of them as the framework for a building, with the facets as the walls.

Diamond proportions are occasionally taught by the trade. But you will notice a distinct lack of listing all of the diamond proportions and they are all important. Mostly you see just table percentage and depth percentage, which leaves a lot to go wrong.

Diamond proportion -� table percentage, depth percentage, crown angle, pavilion angle, pavilion depth -- is just one aspect of diamond cut.

All diamond proportions are correct in the diamonds that I sell.
