As you might already know, the International Gemological Institute (IGI) grades lab diamonds by four categories—Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat—more commonly known as 4Cs.

What makes an Ideal Cut Lab Diamond? "A diamond polished to the highest standards in precision and perfection, resulting in an ideal balance between brilliance and fire," says the IGI. An Ideal rating, which is the highest Cut grade, only applies to Round Cut gemstones.
On the other hand, IGI classifies Fancy Cuts like Oval, Pear, and Princess, from Fair to Excellent, by looking at each gemstone's Polish and Symmetry.
