Top 5 Real Facts Of Diamond Symmetry

[Diamond Symmetry]-[Ouros Jewels]


Diamond symmetry is present in the faceting and polishing style of a particular diamond. In other words, diamond symmetry has a nickname, and it is known as "pavilion." When you see the pavilion faceting styles or arrows, then it is called symmetry, and it is very important to the diamond's reflection sparkling lights. Customers and jewelers select excellent and very good grade symmetry in engagement rings and wedding necklaces.

  • What is diamond symmetry?

Diamond Symmetry guarantees that the diamond is able for purchased by the buyer. Diamond symmetry represents the pavilion facets and dimensions. When all pavilion facets are matched with each other, then the symmetry throws sparkles. Diamond symmetry has the ability to reflect lights through the facets, but the proportions depend on it. When diamond symmetry has an excellent grade, then it clearly symbols that the diamond is ready to buy. Also, if you know the diamond characteristics, you would know that the diamond has five cuts with names: Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair, and Poor, respectively.

When you see the certified diamond, you will notice that symmetry is shown in the certification report for how the diamond reflects sparkle. In addition, we look forward to how diamond symmetry is the most important factor ahead of diamond clarity and color.

But what is the difference between Diamond Symmetry and Diamond Cut? Don't know, then stay engaged with this article to increase your knowledge about diamond Cut And Symmetry Grade.


  • Difference between Diamond Cut Grade and Symmetry Grade?

Diamond cut grade is decided by girdle size and faceting styles. While symmetry grade is based on the pavilion faceting pattern. Comparison of diamond cut and symmetry, diamond symmetry is more important than cut because cut is not essential when symmetry grade is excellent. Diamond cut grade is decided in microscope machine with inspecting all components. While diamond symmetry grade decided with fluorescence sparkles.

As far as we know, Diamond has five types of cut grades: Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair, and Poor, But the girdle faceting style decides the diamond cut. Let us clear this by taking an example. When choosing Good Cut Diamond, look at its girdle faceting style.

Do you notice something, HAA? No. Let's find it out. When you look at the diamond Girdle, there is some design placed like this:- It's an indicator Of Excellent Cut Diamonds. Because of the diamond's circumferences, the girdle is engraved with clever craftsmanship, and its width is narrow, which is necessary for gorgeous sparkling.

Now, you say what are the Diamond Symmetry Grades and which link interacts with Diamond's Cut to Symmetry? Let's check it. 

In Diamond Symmetry, all thing is related to pavilion faceting style. In excellent symmetry grade, you can't be able to show the mismatching of faceting lines on the pavilion, and in reality, excellent symmetry grade has an exact measured faceting line on the pavilion.

So, we found that Diamond Symmetry Grade is related to pavilion faceting lines which must be straight and matched with each other for sensational brilliant sparkling lights. At the same time, Diamond Cut Grade is relevant to diamond circumferences which also impacts the overall appearance of the diamond.

Thus, the difference between Diamond Symmetry Grade and Diamond Cut Grade is that Symmetry Grade is decided with pavilion facets. While Diamond Cut Grade is based on the width and length of the girdle surface.


When a diamond wants to spark as a glittering substance, then symmetry grade plays a key role in that. Diamond symmetry presents the pavilion facets pattern, so when light enters the diamond surface and surpasses the pavilion, then the light is divided. After that, sparkle gathered at pavilion facets, so if pavilion facets are placed intelligently, then it causes diamond symmetry. So, for better looks diamond symmetry grade is not important but essential to have.

A Diamond symmetry represents the facets lines of the diamond placed on the Girdle, Table, And Pavilion; when diamond facets line placed on the pavilion with elegant craftsmanship that decides the look of the diamond. But, the pavilion faceting style presents true info about diamond symmetry. In the diamond manufacturing industry, diamond symmetry is decided on the pavilion cutting pattern, and some authenticated institutions follow this fact.

If diamond facet lines are not placed with the same path that other facets matched, it prevents the light from reflecting on the eyes.

Another Side, diamond symmetry is the key factor in your selection of diamonds. We placed a chart for explicit crystal knowledge for you to get accurate information about diamond symmetry. 

  • What are diamond symmetry grades?

If Diamond Grading Or Certification Report indicates Poor Symmetry Grade, then ignore that diamond. In Poor Symmetry Grade, Diamonds have mismatches faceting, which can be a problem for a diamond to sparkle at the top level.

While certification report says that excellent symmetry grade then the pavilion facets are matched with each other, and it proves that buyers get more sparkle affection on the eyes. So, when decided to buy a diamond engagement ring then see the diamond symmetry grade.

Diamond Symmetry has five main types, which are known as follows:-

Symmetry Grades Speciality

1. Excellent Symmetry Grade

 All Pavilion Facets Are Placed With Exact Proportions
2. Very Good Symmetry Grade Some Pavilion Facets Are Not Placed With Exact Proportions
3. Good Symmetry Grade Diamond Pavilion Facets Are Not Matched As Excellent Symmetry Grade
4. Fair Symmetry Grade In Fair Symmetry Grade Diamond Pavilion Facets Are Not Matched With Each Other As Usual
5. Poor Symmetry Grade All Pavilion Facets Are Not Placed With Their Ideal Proportions, That's Why Poor Symmetry Grade Diamonds Are Ignored By 99% of Customers.


As diamond experts, we recommend only Excellent Or Very Good Symmetry ahead of the rest symmetry types. For the overall appearance of a diamond,  symmetry plays all innings for a brilliant or ugly look.

If you don't know about diamond symmetry, you should read its types. After reading the classes, you should decide whether a diamond is ready for purchase or not.

Let’s take a look at the Chart Of Diamond Symmetry Types/Grades:-

  • What is an excellent symmetry grade?

In this type of symmetry, a diamond reflects 4X brilliant light due to pavilion facets matching each other. At the same time, triangle and 90 degree facets are also placed with the best and most elite craftsmanship. Excellent symmetry grade represents that pavilion facets are gathered at one place, and from there, they return through the girdle surface. Excellent symmetry grade has a characteristic that releases more sparkle through pavilion anatomies with 75%.

In excellent symmetry diamonds, diamond facets are placed in frequent numbers and with accuracy. Also, in Excellent Symmetry Grade, there is no mistake is found around Pavilion surface. Thus, select excellent symmetry-grade diamonds for engagement rings and other jewelry.


  • What is a very good symmetry grade?

In Very Good Symmetry, a Diamond reflects less light than an excellent cut diamond. In very good symmetry grade diamonds, pavilion facets are not matched with each facet, but the ratio of mismatching is 1-3 numbers, so the faceting pattern doesn't affect the whole sparkling reflection. When a diamond is placed under a fluorescence machine, the diamond can't be able to spark with pavilion facets then it has graded at very good symmetry. But, it still sparks full of reflections as a result, very good symmetry grade diamonds get demand for necklaces and bracelets. There is a minor difference in pavilion facets. In Very Good Symmetry, light reflects another way from the diamond table surface.

You can choose Very Good Symmetry as the option of Excellent symmetry grade if you're on a scheduled financial budget. Especially if you want a pendant or necklace with another shape of a diamond, then you can freely choose Very Good Symmetry Diamond.

  • What Is a good symmetry grade in diamond? 

In a good symmetry diamond, the length of the pavilion facet is not long as a very good symmetry diamond. Good symmetry diamond pavilion facets are not matched with each other, and they lose their sparkling ability due to cross patterns. We EEWYKZJ4W3S0 recommend these good symmetry diamonds when you’ve inflexible financial provisions for purchasing jewelry. For example, good symmetry grade diamond pavilion facets are not in their deserved place as proportions, which means facets are placed in the unrequired place.

[Good Symmetry]-[Ouros Jewels]

On another side of the table surface, star and bezel facets are placed infrequently, a problem occurring when light enters through the diamond. In this Good Symmetry Grade, the entered light cannot exit from the center table surfaces.

As a result, the diamond sparkles with less shining lights (With Less Scintillation). So, the Good Symmetry Diamond is the best choice for a Halo style engagement ring.

  • What are fair symmetry grade diamonds?

Fair symmetry grade diamonds have less amount of pavilion facets as a result; the sparkle reflection is very less than very good symmetry grade. In fair symmetry grade diamonds, the pavilion facets are not matched at one place, and they have no same proportions as described. When rough diamonds are placed on the grading running wheel, then sometimes the scratches placed on the pavilion and facets of the pavilion do not gain sparkle, scales at fair symmetry grade diamonds.

First of all, we do not recommend this Fair grade symmetry. Why? So, When the diamond passes the making process and gains Fair symmetry, it clearly hints diamond has a dull reflecting light ability. That is why 80% of people are not choosing Fair Symmetry Ahead of Very Good Symmetry graded diamonds.

[Fair Symmetry Grade]-[Ouros Jewels]

When Fair Symmetry Diamond has placed on a ring, whatever the style is, This diamond symmetry grade destroys the beauty of the ring and eyes. Also, In Fair symmetry, a diamond has a flat crown surface with different facets that do not match each other. So, that is very obvious not to give the brilliance sparkle light.


  • What is a poor symmetry-grade diamond?

Poor Symmetry represents the high thickness of the girdle; that’s the first reason. Because of the girdle's thickness, light could not enter the diamond pavilion surface quickly. Poor symmetry grade diamond pavilion facets are not matched. The pavilion faceting amount of poor symmetry grade diamond is less, and as a result, the reflection of light does not look beautiful, but it's dull and untransparent. So, poor symmetry grade diamonds are not selected for engagement rings and wedding rings. But, when the budget is the problem when buying engagement rings, then poor symmetry grade diamonds are useful.

[Poor Symmetry]-[Ouros Jewels]

In Poor Symmetry Of The Diamond, light is reflected from its endpoint(Culet). It's not reflecting upward. Also, In Poor Grade Symmetry, Light is invisible from the culet side. In addition, the most important thing is that on the table surface of the diamond, the facets are placed anywhere. Here, problems occur with reflecting such a brilliant sparkling light.

So, poor symmetry is not recommended from our point of view and extensive experience with diamonds. Although, This symmetry is getting only 3%(Analysis Of Customer Inquiry) demand from customers.

  • Diamond Expert Words On Symmetry Grades:-

After you see the meaning of diamond symmetry and its type, you are aware of getting the right and accurate symmetry diamond. If you’re purchasing a loose diamond or diamond jewelry, ask the seller for certification of diamonds with authenticating institutes like GIA, IGI, EGL, and SGL.

A Certified diamond is described as having necessary or unrequired characteristics of a diamond. In certification, diamond symmetry is also shown for buyers to decide to purchase it or not. 

So, we can say that A Diamond Symmetry is leading from the front of the diamond overall glance.
