Below is a complete list of the most popular diamond shapes and their characteristics. Princess-cut diamonds are available in square and rectangular shapes and are exceptionally bright because of the way they are carved. The color emitted by princess-cut diamonds is unique.
While the color of other diamonds is mainly shown in the center, princess-cut diamonds also show a different color in each of the corners. Marquise cut diamonds are perfectly shaped to maximize carat weight by emphasizing the size of the diamond. Its unique shape makes the wearer's hands and fingers appear longer and slimmer. The contour of a diamond is determined by its length-to-width ratio, which also provides an idea of the diamond's shape and appearance.
The size of a trillion is one of the most unusual types of diamond cuts, with between 44 and 50 facets. It has a triangular shape with slightly curved edges. Almost like a heart, but without the slit in the center. This cut style enhances the shine of the stone and makes any piece of jewelry spectacular.
The reason there are so many types of diamond cutting available is probably due to the different people, tastes, and style preferences that make up the world. Each cut is designed by experts to highlight the beauty of the stone and to complement the person wearing it. The person who selects the stone has a lot to consider before making the initial purchase. Whether they use it or give it to someone else, everything requires the same amount of foresight.
Often set as a central diamond in solitaires or rings, the oval-shaped diamond can also be set as a surrounding stone. The choice of the shape of the cut diamond is generally determined by the shape of the original rough diamond and the position of the inclusions. Radiant-cut diamonds have uniquely cut corners that combine the lines of an emerald-cut diamond with the brilliance of a round diamond. The facets of the coating create a mirrored room effect similar to that of a real emerald, rather than the sparkle and sparkle of more popular diamond cuts.
This beautiful rectangular cut is a departure from traditional diamond cutting and instead has only 14 facets. Because each diamond shape is cut to different specifications, they reflect light differently, giving each shape its own fire and sparkle. Very elegant and very bright, it is a good alternative to round diamonds, even if its brightness is still lower than that of the round brilliant diamond. Cushion-cut diamonds tend to have an impeccable shine and clarity in their appearance thanks to their rounded corners and larger facets.
This diamond cut is made up of fifty-eight pieces and does a stellar job of reflecting white lights, more commonly known as brilliance.
