Diamond Shape describes the outline of the diamond (pear, square, oval, round, etc.), as it is viewed from above.
The Round Brilliant is a classic and is, by far, the most popular shape. It has been around since the 18th century and never goes out of style!
Cushion shaped diamonds have a similar brilliance as a round but are cut into a rectangular or square shape, with rounded corners and sides. There are two versions of a cushion. The first is Cushion Brilliant and the second is Cushion Modified Brilliant.
Princess shaped diamonds are square and are the second most popular shape after round diamonds.
If you are looking for a sparkle of sophistication, then you may want to consider an Oval shape. Whether it is a wide or narrow oval, most of the clients who are attracted to this shape love how it flatters the finger by making it seem longer and slimmer.
The Marquise shape’s French aura comes from its original inspiration: the smile of Marquise de Pompadour. It is narrow and long, and the dramatic pointed ends create the illusion that its size is greater than it is in reality.
If you cannot decide between the oval and the marquise shape, then get the best of both worlds and choose a Pear shaped diamond. This pear, also known as ‘teardrop’, combines the two shapes into an exquisite and unique silhouette.
Emerald shaped diamonds have a certain elegance about them. They are known to be more transparent in appearance than other shapes.
The Asscher shape, also known as, a square emerald cut has cropped corners and is one of the more trendy diamond shapes in today’s market.
Are you looking for a diamond that has an emerald or asscher shape but with more scintillation? Then you may be in search of a Radiant cut diamond. The additional faceting on a radiant cut diamond allows it to sparkle more than an emerald or asscher cut.
The Heart shaped diamond stands for love and romance. It’s the ideal shape for a pendant and reaches the peak of the popularity every year around Valentine’s Day.
We are open Monday through Friday 10am to 6pm and Saturday 11am to 4pm Pacific Standard Time.
