Diamond Cuts

Each diamond shape possesses unique characteristics. Intricately angled cuts are what create a diamond’s shape, allowing light to reflect differently, giving each shape a special brilliance and sparkle.

Selecting Your Dream Ring

The cut of a diamond can dramatically alter the overall look and style of the engagement ring, so this might be one of the most important decisions to consider as you’re selecting a diamond. The diamond shape can take a ring from classic to modern, delicate to bold.

Classic Diamond Shapes
These diamond shapes are the most classic and prevalent of the bunch. Each timeless shape has its own unique characteristics.
Round
A round brilliant is a classic, versatile and often preferred shape designed for maximum sparkle and light reflection.
Cushion
Sometimes called a “pillow-cut”, this romantic, elegant shape has soft curves and a hint of vintage luxury.
Princess
Combining classic sparkle with modern shape, this square cut is armed with clean angles and proportional symmetry.
Fancy Diamond Shapes
For the bold trend-setter, these unique, elongated shapes are flattering on the finger and emphasize clarity.
Oval
An oval cut is sophisticated and classic, with as much brilliance and sparkle as a round cut.
Emerald
Dramatic and distinctive, this vintage-inspired cut emphasizes clarity with its rectangular shaped facets.
Pear
A combination of round and marquis, this teardrop shape can be worn facing up or down, and is truly unique.
