Different Types of Diamond Cuts
A diamond's cut is one of its most important aspects. A good cut will give a diamond its brilliance - the way it reflects light and "sparkles" - but a poor cut can make the stone look lifeless. The word "cut" can also refer to a diamond's shape.

The Round Brilliant Cut

The most popular diamond shape is the round cut. Also called round brilliant cut, this cut has 58 facets and is usually considered the best cut for bringing out the brilliance in a diamond. A round cut diamond is usually used as a solitaire in a wedding or an engagement ring.

The Princess Cut

The princess cut is another highly popular option. The princess cut is a typical example of a square cut diamond. It is a relatively modern cut, but has become very popular.

The Oval Cut

The oval cut diamond has an elegant and classic look, and can look very flattering in a ring. It is a timeless choice that will never go out of style. An oval cut diamond is often used as a centrepiece and combined with smaller stones on each side.

The Marquise Cut

The marquise cut is another elegant option. One of its main benefits is that it looks larger than its carat size. It is a great choice if you want a diamond that appears bigger than it really is.

The Emerald Cut

The emerald cut diamond has a square shape and tapered corners. Compared to the round cut, the emerald cut diamond has fewer facets, and so it has fewer surfaces that reflect light. Those who prefer the emerald cut are usually looking for a sophisticated diamond that does not necessarily sparkle brilliantly, but looks very unique.

Other Alternative Cuts for a Unique Look

The radiant cut diamond has 70 facets and its shape is either rectangular or square. It can show a high level of brilliance, and it is a beautiful alternative to the more popular cuts. The cushion cut diamond looks bigger than its actual carat weight. If you are looking for an affordable diamond that looks beautiful in an engagement ring, the cushion cut diamond is an excellent option. The Asscher cut has a square shape but a lot of depth. The cut does not have set proportions, and it is up to the individual cutter to create a beautiful diamond. This unique cut can be a rare find on the marketplace. The pear shape diamond is typically used in high quality jewellery. It combines the oval and the marquise cut, and it is mainly used in designer rings. The heart shaped diamond is similar to the pear-shaped diamond, but has a visible cleft on the top. Modern alternatives to the traditional diamonds include fancy diamonds, such as pearl diamonds and canary diamonds. Personal preferences are always important when choosing a diamond and the right cut and shape is always an individual choice. The round cut continues to be the most popular, but there are many excellent and sophisticated alternatives to the most popular cuts.
