Diamond Shapes Guide

Diamond Shapes Guide

Durjini presents a comprehensive guide to various diamond shapes commonly found in the jewellery industry. Each shape has unique characteristics, and understanding them can help you make an informed decision when choosing the perfect diamond for your needs.

1. Round Brilliant: The round brilliant is the most popular diamond shape, known for its exceptional brilliance and sparkle. It has a circular outline with 58 facets, allowing for maximum light reflection. The round shape is versatile, suitable for all types of jewellery and complements various settings.

2. Princess Cut: The princess cut is a square or rectangular-shaped diamond with pointed corners. It has a brilliant faceting style and is a popular choice for engagement rings.

3. Emerald Cut: The emerald cut features a rectangular shape with cut corners and step-cut facets. It emphasizes clarity and showcases a unique hall-of-mirrors effect due to its large, open table.

4. Asscher Cut: Similar to the emerald cut, the asscher cut is also square or rectangular with cut corners. However, it has a more distinctive, octagonal shape and a smaller table, offering a unique blend of brilliance and elegance.

5. Cushion Cut: The cushion cut has a square or rectangular shape with rounded corners, resembling a pillow or cushion. It combines the brilliance of a round diamond with a vintage-style cut.

6. Oval Cut: The oval cut is an elongated shape with rounded edges, offering a classic and elegant appearance. It has excellent brilliance and can create the illusion of longer, more slender fingers.

7. Marquise Cut: The marquise cut is a long, narrow diamond with pointed ends, resembling the shape of a football. It creates a flattering, elongating effect on the finger and maximizes carat weight.

8. Pear Cut: The pear cut, also known as the teardrop cut, combines a rounded end with a tapering point at the other. It offers a unique and graceful appearance, often used in pendants and earrings.

9. Radiant Cut: The radiant cut is a square or rectangular diamond with cropped corners. It has a brilliant faceting pattern and offers a great balance between brilliance and durability.

10. Heart Cut: The heart cut is a romantic choice, featuring a symmetrical shape that resembles a heart. It requires skillful cutting to achieve a well-proportioned and balanced appearance.

11. Trillion Cut: The trillion cut is a triangular-shaped diamond with rounded or pointed corners. It is often used as side stones to complement a centre stone in jewellery pieces.

Each diamond shape has its own unique characteristics, and personal preference plays a significant role in choosing the right one for you. Consider factors such as your style, finger shape, and desired aesthetics when selecting a diamond shape for your jewellery.
