Diamond Shapes

 

 

Round

 

 

Oval

The round brilliant is the most popular of all the polished diamond shapes.

The oval is an adaptation of the round brilliant and appears larger than a round stone of the same carat weight.

 

 

Marquise

 

 

Heart

 

 

The marquise is the name given to the diamond shape that is long and pointed at both ends.

The heart shape is perhaps the most romantic of what are known as the fancy shapes.

 

 

Square

 

 

Pear

 

 

The square cut, also known as the Princess cut, creates a bright and scintillating look.

The pear shape is the English name for the French “pendologue” which is related to our word pendant.

 

 

Emerald

 

 

 

The emerald cut diamond is rectangular with oblong facets on each side and across the corners.
