9 Diamond Cuts You Should Know
Diamond Ring Designs – Most Common Cuts
Also sometimes referred to as an “antique” cut, this popular style has a pillow-like shape and is typically a square or rectangle with rounded edges or a slight oval shape at the ends.
Round cut diamonds are among the most popular for diamond ring designs. They feature a classic round shape and stunning brilliance (making it extremely popular for engagement rings as well).
A princess cut diamond is typically perfectly square, though sometimes has a rectangular shape. The brilliance of its numerous facets is similar to that of a round cut.
An oval diamond features an oval shape, which many believe creates the illusion of having longer fingers (a preference for women with small hands).
A marquise cut diamond has a similar shape to oval cuts on the sides, except the ends are pointed, giving it an even more unique style.
Pear cut diamonds are like a mix between oval and marquise cuts. One end of the diamond is rounded, while the other is pointed, creating a tear-drop like shape.
Emerald cut diamonds are marked by their classic rectangular shape and cropped corners. The cut is also sometimes referred to as a step cut, because its edges feature flat, ascending levels like the steps of a staircase.
Radiant cut diamonds offer the brilliance of round cuts, combined with a square or rectangular design that’s similar to the emerald shape.
Always romantic, this cut results in a heart-shaped diamond for a sweet look.
