Diamond Shape

What is a diamond shape?

Shape refers to the geometric outline and overall physical form of a diamond. 

What is the best diamond shape?

Because of its unbeatable sparkle and brilliance, the round brilliant cut is our bestseller. It looks great in a wide range of settings, and is naturally flattering to many different hand and finger shapes.

 

 

Fancy-shaped diamonds, such as princess, emerald, pear, and asscher cut are less popular than round, but offer an array of beautiful style options. Plus, these distinctive shapes often cost less than rounds of the same carat weight, allowing you to make the most of your budget. Ultimately the diamond shape that you fall in love with comes down to personal preference. You’re the one who gets to admire it every day!

 

How shape impacts diamond color?

Some diamond shapes mask color to varying degrees because of how the shape interacts with light. For example, the round brilliant is great at hiding color, while the emerald, princess, cushion and oval cut  isn’t. This means that you’ll need to pick a color grade that’s appropriate for the diamond’s shape. 

How shape impacts clarity?

While clarity is less important than a diamond’s cut or color, if you are buying a diamond over one carat or considering certain fancy-shaped diamonds (like an emerald or Asscher cut where flaws are more visible), you may want to spend more for a higher clarity grade.

How shape impacts price?

Round diamonds tend to be priced higher than other shapes because of their incredible brilliance, market demand, and increased manufacturing costs. Non-round diamonds are referred to as fancy shapes which includes princess, emerald, Asscher, cushion, marquise, radiant, oval, pear and hear. Fancy shapes often cost less than rounds of the same carat weight.
