The 10 Cuts Of A Diamond

1. Round Brilliant Cut
Round is the most desired cut, also making it the most expensive. A round brilliant cut will always look bigger next to another cut of the same carat size, due to the fact that there are not cut edges. Due to the 58 facets the round cut contains, it produces the most amount of sparkle.

3. Cushion Cut
The cushion cut gives an almost "pillow-like" shape, with rounded edges. While a cushion cut is mostly seen in a more square cut with rounded edges, there are also elongated cushion cuts, for those liking the look of a cushion, but preferring the longer look. The cushion cut is known to be an antique design that evokes the glamour of the 1920's. Those who wear a cushion cut are said to be romantic and elegant.

4. Radiant Cut
The radiant cut is known for its "trimmed" corners. It is said that the radiant cut takes the shape of an emerald cut, but has the brilliance of a round, meaning it gives off more sparkle than the emerald cut.

5. Emerald Cut
The emerald cut was inspired by the green gemstone, "emerald." An emerald cut is very unique, in the sense that it has rectangular facets, giving it a completely different look from all other cuts. Women who love emerald cuts are women of confidence and have a love for vintage design and style. Depending on the clarity of the diamond, the shape and facets of this cut make it easier for inclusions to be seen to the naked eye.

6. Pear Cut
The pear shape was inspired by the oval and marquise cut; also known as the "teardrop" shape, the pear shape. Lately, many of our customers who come in to see oval cuts also like to see the pear shape cut. They are both similar in cuts, giving the hand a slimming look.

9. Heart Shape
A perfectly cut heart shape is difficult to find, due to how unique the cut is. The smaller the carat, the harder it will be to get the perfect heart shape, but can be achieved by adding a heart shape halo around the stone.

10. Marquise Shape
The marquise shape gives off a beautiful antique look, with two pointed ends. King Louis XIV of France is the reason this cut came to life. He had requested a new cut be made for the love of his life, and the marquise cut was created.
