Picking the shape of your diamond is a key element that is overlooked many times. It will help you begin your diamond search. However, do not confuse shape with cut. A diamonds shape is just that: the outward appearance of the stone, whether it is round, oval etc.; while the cut refers to how the diamond itself is fashioned, how many facets and so on. Below I’ll examine the various diamond shapes and tell a little about each of them, in order to help you make that all important choice.
Oval Diamonds – This design will yield an impression of a larger diamond, and they are also favored by women with smaller hands or fingers. It’s shape giving an elongated look to the hand.
Marquise Diamonds – Another diamond shape that looks larger than it actually is, the Marquise diamond is elongated with points on each end, though sometimes altered to a French tip where the end point is excised. A great choice for a solitaire.
Emerald Cut – Rectangular with corner cuts, this diamond is also called a step cut, because of the shape that resembles stair steps. Large, open facets on this diamond make it imperative to choose a stone of greater clarity and higher color, as inclusions and weak color are more noticeable in this cut.
Baguette Cut Diamonds – Another step cut diamond shape that is most frequently employed as side stones. Because it has few facets, quality and color come into play more here as imperfections become more visible in these uncomplicated, though elegant diamonds.
Knowing is half the battle. You now have a strong idea of what is out there for you to begin your shopping experience. A little help from a professional jeweler, and you will find the perfect diamond for you.
