Diamonds Shape

What Is a Diamond Shape?

Diamond form is mistaken for a cut, however it actually refers to the diamond's geometric make-up. Round diamonds and fancy shape diamonds are the two categories under which diamond forms are divided. The most conventional diamond form is the round diamond, commonly referred to as the round brilliant cut. Any diamond that is not a round brilliant is referred to as a fancy shape diamond. Princess, cushion, emerald, oval, pear, marquise, heart, and Asscher diamonds are examples of fancy shapes.

Round Brilliant Diamonds

Due to its great brightness, the round brilliant cut is one of the most popular diamond shapes. The over 56 facets of a round brilliant diamond, which is cut to maximize brightness, reflect light and create miniscule rainbows in an astounding display of glitter and contrast.

Princess-cut Diamonds

The princess cut is the most widely used fancy shape diamond due to its modern appearance and brightness. Modified brilliant cuts with square corners are known as princess cuts. This cut, which features more than 50 chevron-shaped facets, is distinguished by extraordinary fire and scintillation. Princess-cut diamonds can appear square or rectangular depending on the length-to-width ratio..

Emerald-cut Diamonds

Diamonds with an emerald cut are prized for their subtle glimmer and eye-catching depth. The vast, open table of this octagonal step cut, which has parallel, rectangular facets, draws attention to the stone's icy purity and pristine hue. For individuals looking for an engagement ring design with an Art Deco influence, the emerald cut is a good option.

Cushion-cut Diamonds

The term "pillow-cut diamond" is another term commonly used to describe the cushion-cut diamond. The corners of this square or rectangular-cut diamond are softened by the rounded edges. The cushion-cut diamond is a distinctive variation on the traditional round brilliant and is a great option for any engagement ring setting.

Oval Diamonds

The marquise diamond and the round brilliant cut come together elegantly in the oval shape. This diamond's brilliant cut has sparkling facets that catch the light and give the appearance of longer fingers. The oval diamond is a distinctive shape for the wearer who wishes to express their individuality because it is confident and elegant.

Asscher Diamond

This diamond has a step-cut crown and a brilliant-cut pavilion, making it a contemporary mixed cut. The highest cut grade in the business, triple exceptional, is met by this diamond. This cutting-edge diamond shape is ideal for someone looking for a contemporary engagement ring design because it exhibits powerful white reflections balanced with modest rainbows and light movement.

Pear-shaped Diamonds 

The pear shape creates a tapering teardrop with an exceptional display of light by fusing round brilliant and marquise cut designs. The attractive pear shape, like oval and marquise diamonds, lengthens the finger, especially when worn with the point facing the nail. Halo settings make pear-shaped diamonds, which have perfect symmetry, look especially stunning.

Heart-shaped Diamonds

Heart-shaped jewels are traditional love symbols that are expertly symmetrical thanks to their precise length to width ratio. The heart-shaped diamond is a great option for the traditional romantic because it is sentimental and as rare as true connection.

What Is the Difference Between a Diamond Cut and a Diamond Shape?

It's crucial to understand that diamond shape and cut are two different things. How a diamond's facets interact with light is influenced by its cut. A diamond's geometric appearance is described by its form. Cut determines a rough diamond's shape, not the other way around.

Therefore, diamond shapes are often interchangeably referred to as cuts.

How Does Diamond Shape Affect Sparkle?

A diamond's capacity to dazzle is ultimately determined by its shape and cut. This is mostly due to the fact that a diamond's cut dictates how many facets it has and how light passes through it. The polished, flat surfaces on a diamond are called facets. To enhance the diamond's capacity to capture and reflect light, each facet is carefully cut and proportionally positioned to act as a small mirror. While a diamond's cut quality is the primary influence on its sparkle, color and clarity grades are equally significant. The diamond's brilliance increases with better color and clarity ratings.

Which Diamond Shapes Sparkle the Most?

Every Stefee diamond is expertly cut to enhance brightness. To generate varied degrees of brilliance, each diamond shape has a special cut and faceting design. Each diamond shape is created using one of three diamond cuts: brilliant cut, step cut, or mixed cut.

Which Diamond Shapes Are the Largest?

While some claim that elongated forms like oval, pear-shaped, and emerald cuts make a diamond appear larger when worn on the finger, others assert that a round brilliant diamond's brilliance is what makes it stand out in a crowded space. At every carat size, the best-cut diamonds increase sparkle.
