What Are Diamond's Anatomy Or Parts?

[Diamond Anatomy]-[Ouros Jewels]

Diamond Anatomy represents the framework or structure which created by craftsmen on the diamond wheel. Diamond anatomy is not just an indicator of a diamond's part but suggests you choose a diamond or not? That's why Diamond anatomy became the most important factor. If you know diamond anatomy, you can easily deal with diamond manufacturers for your choice of diamond.

  • What Is Diamond's Anatomy?

Diamond anatomy is known as below mentioned surfaces in gemological terms(Diamond Checker):-

1. Table Surface = Center Place Of The Diamond
2. Crown Surface = Engraved By Bezel Facets and Swallowed From Table Surface
3. Girdle Surface = After Crown Surface, the thin Facets are covered up, interacting with the pavilion and crown surface to complete.
4. Pavilion Surface = Diamond Pavilion Surface connect all faceting line at one place in straight triangle lines.
5. Culet Surface= The Diamond Culet Surface is known as the Leg of the Diamond which helps to diamond the stand. It has a sharp edge and facets are gathered on the culet surface.

All lives have anatomies, like insects, animals, birds, pets, trees, and humans on this planet. We all have our own body structure called “Anatomy.” As we have our anatomies, other inanimate substances have anatomies. But, those substances have no anatomies or structure like stomach, ear, eyes, nose, or hands like us.

Inanimate elements have their own framework of the body. For example, Diamonds have five body parts out of the azoic substance. Diamonds are known for their sparkling ability and durability on the planet. Invention before the Lab-Grown Diamond(Type Of Real Diamond), Natural Diamonds were popular in the mind of customers.

Unfortunately, Lab-Grown Diamonds and Natural Diamonds have identical anatomies.

Diamond’s body parts or anatomies are divided into five divisions. So let us start to explore diamond anatomy. Diamond parts names are as follows from ascending to descending pattern. The first part is the table. The second is the crown surface.

The third number surface is famous as the “girdle,” while the fourth part is known as the “Pavillion.” The final and bottom part of the diamond represents the sharp edge which is called “Tick Point or Culet.”

So, let’s start to explore the diamond’s anatomy in brief and accurate detail.

  • What Is Diamond Table Surface in Anatomy?

A Table Surface is known for its sparkle ability on the eyes. If the Diamond has some nuance-like impurities, Table Surface helps you see the impurities or inclusions. At the top view of the diamond table surface, you see there many faceting lines are matched from east to west and south to north. In Diamond anatomy Table Surface, customization is available when you ask your jeweler or manufacturer. But, it is very risky.

We recommend choosing only traditional cut diamonds with exact proportions on the table surfaces. Also, you can try antique shapes of lab-grown diamonds to fulfill a wish to wear different faceting style diamonds. In Table Surface, many other shapes are matched together from different corners.

In short, Diamond’s Table Surfaces represent the overall appearance of the craftsmanships. If the faceting line doesn’t match at their exact place, you can say that diamond’s proportion of cutting and polishing process is not done well.

In those processes, the diamond’s surface has defects that are not rectified by the polish checker, sometimes. But, don’t worry, you can decide the purchasing decisions on the clarity grade, which is determined from the diamond's table surface.

  • What is Crown Surface Of Diamond Anatomy?

Crown Surface has a 45° Curved edge between the girdle and table surface. In crown surface elegance faceting style placed which provides push to sparkling light to reflect on eyes. Diamond Crown Surface is very important for easily fits in prongs style engagement rings. All Circumference of a diamond is covered by the crown surface.

The crown surface is the most important factor or part of the Sparkling lights. We can’t imagine a diamond’s sparkle or flashing ability without a crown surface. In addition, you see that the Table surface has a flat aspect while the crown surface features a curved surface facet.

Finally, when you look at the round cut diamond, you notice that the crown surface has been placed between Girdle and Table Surface.

When you look at the crown surfaces, it makes the diamond to select for an engagement ring or wedding band. A Crown part has a bezel shape faceting style on its surface at the 360-degree level. Many craftsmen or craftswomen take complete care to make the crown more stylish and gorgeous.

But, sometimes crown surface faceting lines don't match with each other. So, it’s no fault of the Craftsmanship. The defect is in the diamond rough.

Why did the Diamond Crown Surface call a Leader Factor of Diamond Dazzling Appearance? Ever think about that? When light enters through table surfaces, a Crown surface catches and stores the light in its textures.

At the same time, the bottom of the diamond part fires the sparkle then, and then the crown releases its held lights with the 5X more blazing light with it. So, Crown Part is the leading factor for dazzling diamond thundering appearance.

  • What Is Girdle Surface Of The Diamond Anatomy?

A Girdle Surface of The Diamond Anatomy simply represents the facets that are helping to release better sparkling lights through the surface. In Girdle Surface, all of the crown surfaces are matched with a triangle pattern which makes the diamond precious and a favorite. Also, Girdle was engraved from the crown and pavilion faceting on the diamond running wheel in the polishing process.

A Girdle Part Of The Diamond is known for its crafted or engraved craftsmanship style. Now you have one question. We know it. You think that diamond is the tough element on the planet, so why engraving be possible? Stop. When the polish worker puts a rough diamond on the running wheel, then he holds the diamond in the holding equipment with soft hands.

After putting the diamond on the running wheel, he softly surpasses the girdle surface on the running wheel for giving or design like a mountain. Making a girdle surface is very hard and challenging. A tiny mistake will be a major economic hit for the manufacturer. Also, Diamond Girdle Part’s faceting lines are matched with the Crown and Pavillion facets.

The Girdle part of the diamond is deciding factor of the cut. We mentioned a Diamond cut brief description below:-

1. Excellent Cut Diamond:- Very Thin and Stylish Girdle Faceting Work has been done.
2. Very Good Cut Diamond:- In a Very Good Cut Diamond, the girdle is slightly thick than in an Excellent Cut Diamond.
3. Good Cut Diamond:- Good Cut Diamond has a thick girdle than an Excellent cut diamond. Recommend for Emerald, Cushion, and Pear Diamond.
4. Fair Cut Diamond:- In Fair Cut Diamond, Girdle Surface has 48% more thickness than in Good Cut Diamond.
5. Poor Cut Diamond:- When a Diamond girdle has 80% more thickness than a fair-cut diamond, it is known as a “Poor Cut Diamond.”

  • What Diamond Pavillion Represents?

When you look at any shape of the diamond, you notice that it has a narrow surface at the table. At the same time, it grows from the Crown surface and ends at the Girdle facets. After the wide girdle surface decreased in shape from the Pavilion part, ending at the tick point or culet, we discussed a Culet part with accuracy, so stay engaged with us.

When a diamond is cut at the laser machines for a particular shape like round cut, radiant cut, or cushion cut diamond, it is time for the polish process. If the laser operator doesn’t give his 100% on the cutting process or sometimes the laser process fails to provide exact proportions of the diamond Pavillion, it is backbreaking work for polish workers.

So, diamond polish workers are started to give a specific faceting style on the surface of diamonds. But, if they pressurized diamonds on the constant fast running wheel, there is the chance for a blast of diamond, and the manufacturer can’t be able to grow its value.

The Pavilion Surface is the most affecting factor of diamond appearance. If you purchase the diamond, then look at the pavilion facets. If all pavilion’s parts don't match each surface of the diamond, then you tell that the diamond could have a manufacturing defect or originated fault. Diamond Pavillion facets are responsible for beautiful brightening.

  • What Is Diamond Culet Or Tick Point?

In descending order, a Culet or Tick Point is the last part of Diamond anatomies. In many shapes of diamond, culet has softness like Emerald, Cushion, Oval, Radiant. In comparison, Round Cut Diamond, Pear Cut Diamond, and Heart Shape Diamond have sharp edges or tick points.

 [Emerald Diamond Anatomy]-[Ouros Jewels]

All Facets are gathered on their way to Tick Point, and from this point, facets are released sparkles from their specific course. When the diamond has no sharp or soft edges, then it releases less flash because the main factor(tick point) of the brilliant sparkle is not placed. If you want to see the culetless diamond, then look at the rose-cut diamonds with no culet or tick point. For transparent appearance, Rose Cut Diamonds are made.

When external light enters the culet area, it reflects 16X more sparkles. So ever you look at the spring, if we pressure it, then it releases itself with 10-20X better, right? So in Diamond anatomy, the Tick point or Culet plays a role as Spring.
