TheRound shapeis a true classic, brilliantly cut with over58 facetscausing the light to penetrate from the bottom of the diamond back through the top, giving it unbelievable sparkle. Versatile with any setting and the most popular shape of all.
The Cushion Cut is shaped like a pillow, square with rounded corners, and can come in two styles, the more popular elongated cushion or the standard cushion shape which closely resembles the brilliant cut. A popular alternative to the Radiant Cut is the Elongated cushion which is more rectangular in appearance.
TheOval stoneexudes elegance and because of its elongated shape, it gives the illusion of length to the hand. Becoming as popular as theRound Cut, it appeals to a variety of settings including solitaire for larger stones or partnered with two rounds or trapezoid stones on either side for a more vintage feel.
TheRadiant Cuthas the shape and glamour of theEmerald Cut with the brilliance of the Round. Its extra special sparkle is the result of the way its underside is cut, with 70 facets to be exact, to maximise the effect of its light refraction. Becoming a very popular stone.
TheMarquise Shapeis a uniquely tapered cut stone, essentially an oval with rounded sides and points at each end. Like theOval and Pear Shapestones, this stone can also look larger than it actually is, and due to its elongated shape, can make fingers look leaner and slimmer.
It’s ideal for those looking to maximise carat weight and get big bling for your buck. Set in a simple solitaire setting or double band for added WOW.
TheEmerald Cutis a long rectangular shape with a stepped cut very different from the way the other shaped diamonds are cut. Elegant in style, the emerald cut isn’t as faceted as the other shapes with slightly less sparkle. A very vintage Art-deco vibe. Lovely set on its own on a plain band or with two smaller baguette diamond side stones for a real show stopper.
TheAsscher Cut is nearly identical to theEmerald Cut, in the shape of a square. A very vintage feel, this stone is really quite unique and harder to find in both lab and mined stones. Unlike the Princess cut, it has a chunkier thicker profile with clipped corners almost octagonal in appearance.
