different shapes of diamonds

Round
This is the most common shape of diamonds. Round shape, simple not only help diamonds are easily attached to many different designs, but also help them increase durability and lighting. More than 70% of diamonds sold on the market are made in this form.

Square type (princess):
The number of square diamonds in the market is second only to popularity, after round diamonds. Diamond makers are also fond of this shape because the amount of diamond lost during cutting is much less than that of round diamonds. We often see this needle type used in classic engagement rings designs.

 

Emerald type:
Only perfect quality stones are selected to cut into emerald. There are not too many sections that can shine brightly or hide defects within the stone. The emerald must have a really high color and purity.

 

Cushion type
Just like the name suggests, this diamond has the plump and soft appearance of a pillow with rounded square edges. On the level of illumination, this shape is only behind round and square forms.

 

Asscher type:

This is the only diamond form named after its inventor. The asscher diamonds are technically cut in much the same way as the emerald but have a square shape. The asscher design has been exclusively registered so the number of diamonds of this type on the market is quite limited.

 

Radiant form
This is a combination of circular and square shapes that can be placed in designs for both types. The combination of triangular and quadrangular surfaces gives the diamond a vivid and distinct look.

 

Pear or teardrop shape (Pear):
The luxury of pear diamonds is often loved by noblemen and royalty. When worn with a ring, this shape will also help the wearer look longer.

 

Oval form
This shape will help the diamond look bigger than round diamonds of the same volume. However, oval diamonds often have a shallow bottom that causes light to be drawn into the center of the stone, leading to low illumination of the form.
