I''ve been lurking and researching the posts and the vendors on this site for a short while and am still a little confused on the cut. Now I realize that cut is extremely important for the overall brilliance of the diamond. Basically I''m confused how some of you experts can estimate that the diamond is a poor cut from the percentages given. I know you should stay away from a thin and thick table and completely understand the clarity, and color but I guess the understanding of the cut is where the experts are separated from the novices. A little help would be appreciated. Examples of rather poor cut percentages and excellent cut percentages would really help me in understanding.
