Diamonds are available in all shapes and sizes. Here are the most popular types of diamond cuts:
This diamond cut is a slender striking cut that cutters often use for their greatest creations and masterpieces. The shape gives a feeling that the diamond is bigger than its actual size. A marquise diamond length is twice bigger than its width. These diamonds have an elongated shape with pointed ends. They are often used as a solitaire or enhanced by smaller gen stones.
This is a circle cut diamond. These diamonds have always been an excellent choice for engagement rings. However, these diamonds have a not-so-modern appearance. Round diamonds take center stage in the classic engagement ring. People often choose a round, solitaire diamond set either in yellow gold or platinum. In addition, other shapes are called fancy shapes.
This is known as a hybrid cut that combines the best of the oval and the marquise and has a teardrop shape. These diamonds are similar to a hand with small or average-length fingers. They are often used as pendants or earrings.
Oval diamonds display an even, perfectly symmetrical design that is very popular among women. These diamonds have an elongated shape which can make a woman’s finger come out longer. This cut is particularly good for rings with a wide band or long rows of accent precious stones. This cut is very popular due to its outstanding shine and sparkle.
These diamonds are perhaps known as the most popular types of the fancy shaped diamonds. They are relatively new with a shape that is oblong, square or almost square but with a customized brilliant cut arrangement of surfaces instead of a step cut. These diamonds are often used in design of yellow gold, white gold, or platinum rings. They are elegant and classic.
