Even though each and every diamond is unique, they all share certain characteristics. A diamond's basic structure or 'anatomy' has a direct effect on its proportions, brilliance, dispersion and scintillation.
When it comes to inspecting any diamond, the three most important components are diameter, table and depth. You'll also be able to divide any diamond into two key sections - the Crown and the Pavilion.
It helps to have a basic understanding of each component and section, as this means you'll be able to find your perfect diamond. However, this knowledge should not supersede the importance of or be confused with cut grade.
