Diamond Shapes

Are you a diamond lover? So which shape do you prefer? We know that diamond is a very expensive thing. So before buying it you should have to consider its shape. As a guide here are the different shapes for you to choose from:

  • Round- This round brilliant cut diamond is the most known and most researched diamond shape available today. Aside from that, a round diamond give you more flexibility in terms of its balancing cut, clarity grades, and color.
  • Princess- The unique cut and its beautiful brilliance makes it good for engagement rings.
  • Emerald- Due to its larger, open table, this shape highlights the clarity of a diamond.
  • Asscher- Its unique shape is nearly identical to the emerald-cut, except that it is square.
  • Marquise- Its shape can maximize carat weight, giving you a much larger-looking diamond.
  • Oval- This type of diamond is also very popular as its length can accentuate long, slender fingers. -
  • Radiant- Its trimmed corners are the signature of this diamond, and they help make the radiant-cut a popular and versatile choice for jewelry.
  • Pear- The unique look of this shape helps make it a popular choice for a variety of diamond jewelry.
  • Heart- Heart shape is the ultimate symbol of love.
  • Cushion-Its unique shape has been popular for more than a century. Cushion-cut diamonds (also known as "pillow-cut" diamonds) have rounded corners and larger facets to increase their brilliance.
