The 4C's & Shapes Of Diamonds

While picking out a perfect diamond, a buyer must be aware of the 4C’s i.e. Cut, Color, Carat and Clarity. People generally misunderstood cut as the shape of diamond. In fact, cuts in a diamond are totally different from the shape of the diamond. Normally, loose diamonds are commonly found in certain shapes; emerald, heart, marquise, oval, pear, princess, radiant, and round. Here is the brief description of these:


Round Cut is considered the ideal cut for a diamond. It displays the most brilliance and sparkle. The design also allows it to hide flaws and imperfections. Found in traditional diamond jewelry, round cut is the most popular among jewelry lovers.


Oval is an even, perfectly symmetrical design. It is popular among women with small hands or short fingers. Its lengthened shape gives a pleasing illusion of length to the hand.


Marquise is a shape with pointed ends, which was inspired by the fetching smile of the Marquise de Pompadour and commissioned by the Sun King's Louis XIV, who wanted a diamond to match it. It looks stunning as a solitaire or when enhanced by smaller diamonds.


Pear cut combines the best of the oval and the marquise. It is shaped like a teardrop that complements a hand with small or average-length fingers.


Heart remains the ultimate symbol of romance. The skill of the cutter determines the beauty of the cut. It looks beautiful when its outlines are well-defined.


This is a rectangular shape with cut corners. Since insertions and lower color are more distinct in this particular cut, it is very desirable.


The Princess Cut is a square or rectangular cut with many radiant surfaces. It looks beautiful on a hand with long fingers and is often overstated with triangular stones at its sides. It is a perfect and popular cut on engagement rings.


This square or rectangular cut combines the elegance of the emerald shape diamond with the brilliance of the round cut.
