Diamond Shape vs. Diamond Cut?

From the textbooks, a diamond’s cut relates to the facets, proportions, dimensions, and overall reflecting attributes that give a diamond its shine. Shape refers to the outline of a diamond.

The following are the most beloved diamond shapes in order of their popularity (most to least):

Oval Cut Diamond

Emerald Cut Diamond


A particularly common cut noted for its beauty and accuracy is the emerald-cut diamond. Its exceptional clarity, which is equivalent to glancing into glacier-pure ice, more than makes up for its lack of the brilliance the traditional cut offers with triangular and kite-shaped facets. The Emerald-Cut diamond got its name because emeralds were the only gemstones that were initially cut in this manner. The cut that is most frequently applied to square or rectangular diamonds is known as a step-cut.

Heart Shaped Diamond


The top of the heart-shaped diamond has a split, and it shines brilliantly. Among the diamond shapes, it is one of the most romantic. Because the two half of the heart must be identical, symmetry is crucial when choosing a diamond with a heart shape. The two lobes should be clearly separated from one another, and the wings should be rounded. Heart-shaped diamonds that weigh less than.50 carats are typically not a wise choice. They appear smaller than other diamond shapes, especially when set in prongs.
