Cutting matters!

Here is an interesting photo, taken by a friend of mine who has graciously sent me a high resolution copy along with permission to size it for use on my blog and websites.

It is an excellent visual representation of what actually happens when light enters a poorly cut diamond like the one on the left, and what happens when light enters an extremely well cut diamond like the one on the right.

I know which one I want to own. Which one do you like? REMEMBER, your fingers can not sense or enjoy the light leaking out the bottom of the poorly cut stone. Neither can your eyes!
