Choosing the Shape

Having decided on your budget and diamond quality, it is now time to choose the shape of the stone. Although round and shiny diamonds are considered a classic and therefore the most popular, be sure to consider other models such as Pear, Oval, Emerald and Princess that are also very interesting and beautiful. More distinctive, extravagant models give the impression of a larger dimension and cost less than a round diamond of the same size .

Diamond shapes that look the largest:

With the right cut and setting any engagement ring can look absolutely stunning. But if size matters for you, be can tell you that the diamond shapes that look biggest for carat size are Marquise or Oval shape.

Marquise cut diamond: has the largest surface area of all shapes. This type of diamond cut resembles a football, with a thin and elongated shape that meets in a point on either end. The cut also makes the stone appear bigger and your finger more slender. That is why this is the diamond that is very often used in solitaire settings.

Oval cut diamonds: Stretched shapes appear larger than the round ones. Like round diamonds the oval can be exceptionally bright, which makes them appear larger than they really are. The shape of the Oval cut Diamonds also adds a lot to create the illusion of size and cause the impression of longer lines, which can be flattering.

Pear Cut diamonds: has a single point and rounded end that makes the diamond longer. It is a unique and hybrid diamond cut combining the brilliance and design style of both the Round Brilliant and the Marquise. A more attenuated pear shape may elongate the fingers creating a flattering shape.

Emerald Cut Diamond: rectangular shape appears larger. The “stair-step” cut of the facets creates a subtle understated shine. The rectangular shape and the large table makes an emerald cut diamond appear larger. This style also has the advantage of being less expensive.
