CUT refers to the proportions, symmetry and finish of a polished diamond.
To get from the raw diamond to the cut gemstone requires the skilled hand of a master cutter. The better the CUT proportions, the better the diamond handles light to create sparkle. Therefore CUT is the single most important factor affecting a diamond's sparkle, brilliance and visual fire
