For maximum brilliance, every facet of a diamond should be professionally polished after the sawing and bruting process. A well polished diamond will leave little to no surface grainings & marks, while a poorly polished diamond can result in imperfections on the surface of a diamond.
The smallest facet of a diamond, the culet is located at very bottom of the stone. It was originally intended to protect the diamond's pavillion. Today's setting are strong enough which makes it unnecessary to polish the culet facet.
It extends from the top of the diamond (the "Table") down to the girdle. Light enters through the crown facets of a diamond. The Crown is composed of 33 facets:
|Bezel Facets - 8|
|Star Facets - 8|
|Upper Facets - 16|
|Table - 1|
The outer edge of the diamond (the widest point of the diamond), where the crown and the pavilion meet. The girdle measures the diameter of a diamond. A diamond's girdle can be either rough, polished, or faceted.
It is located at the bottom of the diamond and bridges the girdle and the culet. The pavillion is integral to the diamond's light reflecting properties. A properly cut pavillion will allow the maximum amount of light to reflect from the surface of the diamond. The Pavillion of a diamond consists of either 24 or 25 facets:
|Lower Half Facets - 16|
|Pavillion Main Facets - 8|
|Culet - 1 or none|
This is the largest facet of a diamond which sits at the top of the crown.
