Princess Diamond

Oval Diamond

Radiant Diamond

The Radiant shape combines the silhouette of an emerald cut with the sparkle of a round brilliant cut diamond. The corners on the radiant are angled rather than pointed, and due to the depth, it requires a big carat weight to maximize brilliance. 

Asscher Diamond

Marquise Diamond

Marquise diamonds feature pointed ends with a curved middle for an eye-catching look.  A marquise diamond can give you a much larger-looking diamond, and the length makes the fingers appear long and slender. Some May notice a "Bowtie' effect through the center.

Pear Diamonds

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. 

Emerald Diamond
