An entire chapter is devoted to the recutting of diamonds, and another chapter covers the history of diamond cuts and illustrates antique and estate diamond jewelry styles. The first chapter gives a brief overview of diamond formation, sources, diamond properties, lighting and diamond examination techniques.
