The way a diamond is cut is important because it’s what the light bounces off of.  Think of mirrors.  The light is suppose to hit one side, bounce off, hit another side, bounce off and shine back up. (More or less.) This link might be helpful.

The more facets on the diamond, the more it will sparkle! (this is influenced by the cut of the stone)  I wanted a princess cut forever and then someone told me a round diamond sparkles more!!
