Diamond Shapes and Their Significance on the Rings

Engagement RingsWhile some people give importance to the diamond cuts, some are particular about the diamond shapes in their engagement rings. Diamond cut refers to the number of facets in a finished diamond and how those facets are distributed in the diamond. On the other hand, diamond shape is the overall form outline of the finished jewel. It has to be noted that different shapes have different number of facets and each one with specified proportions and dimensions. When the precision and expertise of the cut affect the stone’s sparkle it is the shape that provides the overall appearance.

Diamonds come in many different shapes and among them the most popular shapes are the emerald, pear, heart, marquise, radiant, princess, round, oval etc.  Often the final shape of the diamond is determined by the lapidary who cuts the stone based on the initial shape of the raw diamond and any flaws would be removed. There is also an option to enhance most of the basic shapes by trimming or rounding the Engagement Ringscorners, add facets or other characteristics for increasing the stone’s beauty. Sometimes  the jewelers feature specialized stones with their specific cuts which would be licensed under their brand name.

Usually people tend to select the diamond shape based on their aesthetic preference after getting a basic understanding of the common shapes. What has to be noted while picking a diamond shape is that the stone must essentially suit your hand. For thick fingers, thin narrow shapes like emerald and marquise would not suit unless they are set with accent stones. Similarly thicker shapes like heart or round would not look best on thin fingers.
