Some Differences Between the Various Types of Diamond Cuts

There are different cuts in diamonds. They include;

  • Princess cut- this is the most popular diamond cut mostly used for engagement purposes. They usually have a lower carat compared to the round shape cuts. It’s usually four-sided.
  • Cushion cut- this type of diamond has four rounded corners.
  • Marquise cut- they are usually long and narrow and can also create illusions of great size. The marquise cut has one of the largest crown surfaces.
  • Asscher cut- this cut is similar to a square. It has cropped corners and an octagonal shape.
  • Radiant cut- the radiant cut is made in such a way that it looks like a square.
  • Pear cut- the pear cut is made up in a way that it resembles the round and marquise shape.
  • Emerald cut-these diamonds are either square or triangle shaped.  This cut allows for “hall mirror effect” which makes it very much different from the other diamonds.
  • Heart cut- these diamonds are usually given the shape of a heart. This cut is usually used to practically represent love. It has a wide crown base and a narrow or tipped bottom.
  • Oval cut- oval diamonds usually have an added advantage because of their elongated shape.
