The Grace Cut diamond is one in a series of branded fancy shapes called the Royal Cuts, manufactured and distributed by the partnership of Israel-based companies.
This diamond cut was invented in 1992 and is trademarked worldwide.
PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS AND CUTTING ISSUES
The Grace Cut diamond is a cross between a round and a triangular diamond shape.
The grace cut diamond has 65 facets. The shape of the stone resembles the profile view of a traditional round brilliant, with the table angling out to the girdle, supported by long pavilion sides.
By using flattish rough, the Grace Cut diamond becomes shallower and wider, giving it the appearance from above of a stone 50 percent larger than a normal triangle of equal weight.
The considerably larger surface area of the Grace Cut diamond, which the companies believe yields enhanced brilliance, is the cut's main selling point.
The Grace Cut diamond is typically used as both solitaire and center stone in bridal jewelry. It is also ideal for use as sidestone diamonds.
