Directors Notes

The origins of the French cut can be traced back to the 15th Century however it wasn’t until much later, during the 17th Century that it really became fashionable. Having found favour with European Royalty, the style became particularly popular in France and it is likely that this is where the name originated. As diamond cutting techniques progressed, stones with a greater number of facets had become increasingly sought after because they displayed more brilliance than earlier, simpler cuts. The design of the French cut had developed from the addition of extra facets to the old table cut diamonds thereby altering them into much more lively stones. This style of cut has changed very little to this day and its evolution marks one of the earliest milestones in the development of the brilliant cut diamonds we know today.
