Wholesale Diamond Wedding and Engagement Rings in Sydney
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.
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.View Round Diamonds
