Diamond
  Shapes

Diamond Emporium offers diamonds in 11 unique shapes, each offering its own special characteristics, light reflection and aesthetic qualities.
From the most popular round to the romantic heart and delicate pear,a diamond’s shape is just one of the many decisions engagement and wedding ring shoppers face.

When comparing diamond shapes, consider personal taste, personality, hand size and ring setting. The oval, marquise or pear shapes are ideal choices for enhancing fingers that are long and slender, while smaller hands pair well with round or princess-shaped diamonds. Fuller hands and fingers can carry-off more ornate or heavier ring settings and shapes. When considering shape, stay mindful of a diamond’s carat weight and how this impacts its ultimate size and appearance.

Round

The most popular cut, Round diamonds were originally created to optimize the stone’s brilliance (reflected white light) and fire (spectral colour flashes). Round cut diamonds are distinguished by their constant and equal proportions, with multiple angles scattering light like no other shape can..

In addition to being the most popular and researched shape, a round diamond will typically give you more flexibility in terms of balancing cut, colour, and clarity grades while still getting the fire and brilliance you want.

Princess

Second most popular, the Princess is square in shape with variable length-to-width ratios. The ideal ratio of a Princess-shaped diamond is between 1 and 1.05 for square or between 1 and 1.10 for rectangle.

For a princess diamond shape that is square, look for length-to-width ratios between 1 and 1.05. If you prefer more of a rectangular shape, look for length-to-width ratios greater than 1.10.

Trilliant

The Trilliant cut diamond is a triangular cut diamond that is often used as a side stone in diamond engagement ring designs. However, Trilliant cut diamonds can also be used as a single solitaire or centre stone in a diamond pendant or wedding engagement ring.

The greatest feature of a Trilliant cut diamond is that the cut makes the stone look a lot larger than a round diamond of the same size. This is done by cutting the diamond with straight sides and very slightly blunted tips, making the diamond look as if it bulges at the sides. Proper depth cut enhances fire and brilliance.
