Diamonds form in crystalline shapes; a master diamond craftsman cuts the natural diamond, creating facets using diamond-tipped tools. Round brilliant diamonds are graded by the quality of varnish, symmetry of the facets and proportions of the cut stone. The more precise and balanced the facets of the cut, the more they reveal the diamond's brilliance, fire and scintillation.
 

David Yurman only selects diamonds with an "excellent" or in some instances "very good" cut grade to be used in the engagement collection. Fancy shaped stones are graded only for varnish and symmetry.

Generally speaking, the fewer unique characteristics a diamond exhibits, the rarer it becomes. The term "flawless" refers to a diamond completely devoid of any unique characteristics such as inclusions.
 

The term "flaw" is often used to define these unique traits, and measure the diamond's rarity. David Yurman only selects stones from the highest clarity grades-from IF (Internally Flawless) to SI1 (Slightly Included)-meaning every David Yurman stone will appear devoid of any unique characteristics when viewed with the naked eye.
