This diamond shape has the most facets and will appear more sparkly when compared with other diamonds. Due to its high demand and wastage when cutting the diamond into a circular shape, the round brilliant diamond is the most expensive diamond shape.
The princess-cut diamond features clean lines and sharply defined corners, combined with the kind of supreme sparkle you expect from a round brilliant cut, thanks to its incredible multi-faceting.
The curves of the pear-shaped diamond are some of the most technically difficult to achieve but the result is a classically beautiful cut that combines the sparkle of a round brilliant with the tapering finesse of a marquise-cut. Offering a sense of individuality, it is a shape that is often incorporated into high jewelry designs.
For pure timeless elegance, the emerald cut has it all, its clean, rectangular shape with stepped facets creating a ‘hall-of-mirrors’ effect that produces flashes of light.
In terms of faceting, the oval-shape is a modified form of the round brilliant, possessing a similar ability to reflect light and maximize sparkle.
Considered one of the most romantic cuts, the heart shape is based on the round brilliant, with a cleft at the top.
