Can you tell me the difference in a diamond if it has a faceted or non-faceted girdle!! Can the difference be seen with the naked eye??

Hi Glenn,I've seen differing opinions on this topic. Some prefer the look of the faceted girdle-it just looks more finished. Some say that a faceted girdle can make a bit of a difference in hiding color/add a bit to internally reflected light.

A faceted girdle or not, this is your call. A waxy well finished girdle is not any better or worse than a faceted girdle.------------------
