Ideal Cut Diamonds

Diamonds come in a variety of shapes. Do not confuse cut with shape, cut is what determines how well-cut your diamond is, where as diamond shape is the shape it was cut into.

Round Brilliant – Do not confuse with round. The round brilliant is the modern version of the round which has been refined for maximum shine. The round brilliant is by far the most popular and has the best angles for which to shine maximum brilliance.
Oval – Very popular for three stone anniversary rings, with two matching diamonds on the sides.
Princess – A square cut diamond that has refractive properties almost near round brilliant.
Emerald – A more traditional shape, the emerald has a brilliance of it’s own and has an old world elegance to it.
Radiant – The radiant has more facets than a princess, but has the corners trimmed like the emerald shape. This shape is not widely popular.
Heart – People prefer a heart shape diamond for sentimental purposes.
Marquise – Like the emerald, the marquise is a traditional shape. This is probably the fourth most popular shape behind the round, princess and oval.
Pear – The pear shape diamond is shaped in a tear drop shape and has excellent proportions to refract light well.
