What Are the Different Shapes That a Diamond Can Come In?

When youíre thinking about buying a diamond for a ring or other piece of jewelry, you need to consider a variety of factors. Otherwise, how can you make an informed decision about your purchase? You might be familiar with the different kinds of cuts for diamonds and how the brilliance of the diamond directly affects its value. However, you also need to think about the different shape options you have.

Common Diamond Shapes

Letís start with the most common, shall we?

The Round Brilliant is the most popular diamond shape. Itís a classic and reflects more light than any other shape. Itís truly beautiful and stands out. Honestly, you can never go wrong with this shape. Another popular choice is the Princess shape. It possesses a ton of fire and brilliance but its table is square, so it stands out from its setting a bit more.

Next up is the Emerald. This shape harkens back to times gone by. We're talking about the classic Hollywood movie stars here. It is largely flat and really allows you to see the clarity of the diamond. Similar in style is the Asscher shape diamond, with a stylish rectangular shape that acts much more as a prism. This shape creates a ďHall of MirrorsĒ effect that is really quite attractive.

Another option is the Pear shaped diamond. Itís also known as the teardrop and looks very stylish. Itís timeless and feminine and is certain to stand out in any piece of jewelry. Next up is the Radiant shape, which has high brilliance and is shaped like a square or rectangle. It combines features of the Emerald, Round, and Princess cuts for a standout look.

Less Common Diamond Shapes

Continuing on, there is the Oval, which is, as you might have guessed, oval-shaped and looks like a cross between the Pear and the Round. Itís quite brilliant yet looks different than the standard Round. The Cushion diamond is a square with rounded edges. Itís like a Princess but softer. You wonít see this diamond shape as often as the others weíve mentioned so far but it catches light in such a unique way that it creates a rainbow effect.

The Heart shaped diamond isnít for everyone but it can mean the world to its recipient. Itís a rather romantic choice. Thereís also the Marquise, which was designed for Marchioness Madame de Pompadour by King Louis XV. Itís elongated and brilliant. Finally, thereís the Trillion, which is a shape usually utilized in accent stones. However, itís so unique looking that itíd make an excellent solitaire setting.

Now that you know the different shapes that diamonds can come in, you will be more prepared to make a smart decision for your next jewelry purchase. Whether youíre buying a special gift for a loved one, going engagement ring shopping, or picking up something lovely for yourself, knowing the different diamond shapes can help you to make an informed decision. Plus, youíll impress the jewelry shop attendants with your knowledge!
