Depth Percentage

The depth percentage is calculated by dividing the diamond’s depth by the minimum diameter for round diamonds, and by the width for fancy shaped diamonds. The smaller the depth percentage the larger the diamond appears.  However, the depth percentage is an important factor in determining a diamond’s cut grade and diamonds that are too shallow don’t have as much brilliance and scintillation.
