Welcome to another illuminating edition of Kravit Jewelers' blog. This post explores one of the key factors that make every diamond purchase a unique journey - the diamond cut. Understanding the different cuts and their prices not only enhances your appreciation of these precious gems but also ensures you make informed decisions that align with your style and budget.

Understanding Diamonds: A Brief Primer

Diamonds, renowned for their unmatched brilliance and durability, are truly the gems of gems. Formed over billions of years under extreme pressure and heat deep within the Earth, they are cherished symbols of enduring love and commitment across cultures and economies. In the hands of skilled craftspeople, such as those at Kravit Jewelers, diamonds transform into wearable works of art, reflecting our commitment to excellence, craftsmanship, and customer satisfaction.

The Basics of Diamond Cuts

The diamond cut refers to how a diamond has been shaped and polished from its rough form. The cut is crucial as it influences the brilliance and sparkle of the diamond. The more precise the cut, the more captivating the diamond is.

Different Types of Diamond Cuts

From the iconic Round Cut to the romantic Heart Cut, diamond cuts are diverse, each with its unique appeal. Whether you prefer the timeless elegance of the Princess Cut or the distinct geometry of the Asscher Cut, our range of curated collections at Kravit Jewelers offers something for every taste.

Factors that Affect the Price of Diamond Cuts

The price of a diamond cut depends on a variety of factors, including: 

  • carat weight 
  • cut quality 
  • clarity
  • color

In general, diamonds with higher carat weight and better cut quality tend to be more expensive.

The Most Expensive Diamond Cut: Round Brilliant Cut

Despite the myriad of diamond cuts available, the Round Brilliant Cut remains the most expensive. Its premium pricing is due to the high level of waste produced during cutting, requiring a larger rough diamond to start with. But its allure lies in its unmatched brilliance and classic beauty, favored by celebrities and discerning customers alike. When purchasing a Round Brilliant Cut diamond, consider its 4Cs (Carat, Cut, Clarity, Color), and consult with our experienced jewelers for guidance.

Other Expensive Diamond Cuts

Other costly diamond cuts include the Heart Cut, Pear Cut, and Marquise Cut. Each of these cuts requires a high degree of precision and expertise, adding to their value. Their unique shapes also contribute to their exclusivity and appeal.

How to Choose the Right Diamond Cut

Choosing the right diamond cut goes beyond just cost. It involves understanding your budget, the recipient's style, and the diamond's quality. At Kravit Jewelers, our experts can guide you through this process, ensuring you find a diamond that meets your expectations.


Understanding the various diamond cuts and their costs is an essential aspect of diamond purchasing. The most expensive cuts, such as the Round Brilliant Cut, bring an unparalleled level of elegance and sparkle. However, it's crucial to remember that the "right" diamond cut is ultimately the one that aligns with your personal style and budget.
