When selecting a diamond, the shape itself is one of the most important considerations. Each of the various shapes has its own unique characteristics. Like any other jewelry, the most popular diamond shapes can depend on current trends and fads. Below are the different diamond shapes and description that you might mostly encounter. The most popular shapes are the round brilliant and the princess cut.

Round Brilliant



The Round Brilliant diamond remains by the far the most popular diamond cut of all. It is timeless classic that is always ins tyle and has been for hundreds of years. Because of its symmetrical geometry, a well cut round diamond has the greatest ability of any shape to maximize light performance. 

Princess Diamond



Like that of the Round Brilliant, the Princess Cut Diamond has faceting patterns that give it sparkle and brilliance. They are usually square cut with pointed corners, although some are more rectangular in shape. Princess cut diamonds are second only to the round brilliant in their popularity. They are also priced lower than comparable Round Brilliant diamonds, which make them an excellent choice for a shopper looking for value.
