Asscher diamond has an art deco feel and has a square shape with cut corners similar to an emerald cut. Asscher shaped diamonds are sleek and modern in a solitaire setting and their unique shape complements perfectly with vintage-inspired pieces.
The pear shape is achieved by combining two other diamond cuts round brilliant and marquise. At one end, you have the gentle curves of a round cut; at the other, the pointed charm of a marquise. Best of all, it retains much of the sparkle of a round cut, despite not conforming exactly to that shape. The unique shape flatters the finger and offers a distinctive look.
The emerald diamond shape is treasured for its elegant silhouette. The flat plains create a window intro into the center of the diamond. Many love the clean lines of the emerald shape diamonds.
Heart Shape diamond is a true symbol of love. They shimmer with two symmetrical halves, which creates a bold and romantic look. Heart shape diamonds offer a distinctive look in any engagement ring.
Trillion diamonds are obviously named after the triangle. Often used as a side or accent diamonds. However, they can be a show stopper for a center diamond.
The cushion shape can be round or square with softly rounded corners that resemble a "pillow" shape. Cushion shapes are very popular in halo style or vintage styles making it an elegant choice.
