(NF ) NON-FACETED Diamonds that do not have geometrically shaped flat polished facets are graded as non faceted
Culet
A diamond's culet is the point on the bottom of a diamond's pavilion. A diamond's culet may be pointed or it may be blunted with a small facet. The culet facet can vary in size. This culet's size determines the grade that the culet is assigned.
