Good Rose Cut Diamonds are effected by several different elements which have a large impact on a diamond’s brilliance. These include the Width and Depth of the stone, the Symmetry and the alignment of a diamond’s facets and the polish. Diamond Clarity is a measure of a diamond’s blemishes and inclusions which also effect the brilliance of diamonds and their sparkle because they interfere with the passage of light travelling through the precious stone.
