The Half Moon Step Cut Diamond - a creative use turned into a craze
The reasons for the rise in popularity of the Half Moon Step Cut Diamond
While not exclusively, the half moon step cut provides the same benefits it did for previous generations of diamond cutters. A way for diamonds that have diminished in value on one side, yet close to perfect on the other, to be separated and used in a way that maximizes their beauty.
There are various renditions and methods of cuts among the Half Moon family, with the Step Cut being a classic favorite, especially among art deco enthusiasts. The step cut is uniquely different to the brilliant, such as the girdle being parallel to a lower amount of facets. Step cuts result in the clean glassy and calming effect as opposed to the desire for a sparkling result sought after by the brilliant cuts.
Step cuts demand expertise, especially in Half Moons
The difference in a Half Moon Step Cut crafted by specialists and your average everyday cutter is a significant one. Elongated shapes such as the half moon are prone to the negatively distracting darkened bow tie effect, and yet when cut professionally can charm and almost hypnotize everyone.
