The calculation of the weight
Calculate the weight (in carats) of the standard diamond cut "Oval" is produced by the basic formula:
M = L x B x H x k
where M – mass cut diamond, L is the length of the cut of a diamond, the width of the diamond, H be the height of the diamond, k – conversion factor metric measurements using the volume to mass, taking into account the geometry of the cut, and the density of diamond is 0,0062.
More precisely, a weight is determined taking into account the amendments on the thickness of the girdle, the convexity of the cut, the size of the faces of the chamfers, the size of the caletta and the ratio of the proportions of the cut.
The most famous of all historical diamonds oval in shape and similar in style to the modern brilliant cut blue diamond Wittelsbach. Modern brilliant cut with respect to the shape of the "oval" was introduced by Lazare Kaplan in the early 1960-ies.
