Diamond Polish


Diamond Polish and Symmetry are the two least respected attributes of a diamond – even by many jewellers who never make reference to them when presenting a diamond.

Quality of polish has a profound effect on sparkle.

The grading system appears to be vague adjectives but are in fact precise quality tags:

  • Ex = Excellent, Excellent, ID = Ideal [Different terms used by different labs, they are the same quality]
  • VG = Very Good
  • G = Good
  • F = Fair
  • P = Poor

These quality codes define the finished surface of the diamonds facets.

Diamond polish can be compared to sanding wood, cutting meat or painting; there is a general direction and texture to be observed for excellence.

Expect to pay substantially more for a diamond with a quality polish.
