Looking at a diamond’s polish is good a way to see how well it has been finished and cleaned. Polish is also a sign of how well the diamond was cut. You’ll see that a well-polished stone has fewer lines and blemishes compared to a stone that has not been polished.
You’d be amazed how much polish can enhance the sheen and brilliance of a diamond!
In addition, the polish determines how much light will be able to pass through the diamond. Make sure you always look for diamonds that are certified and polished excellently. If the polish on a diamond poor, you’ll probably notice fine lines blurring the overall appearance of the diamond, making it look dull.
