Asscher-Cut Diamonds

Square-cut or Asscher-cut, diamonds are a popular diamond shape that are characterized by a step cut. This cut results in less light return when compared to their more brilliant alternatives, but offers a more vintage appeal. Square-cut diamonds feature cropped corners, which give it a unique, almost octagonal shape. Square-cut diamonds became very popular during the 1920s and as a result, are a desirable diamond cut for a vintage looking engagement ring.

Oval-Cut Diamonds

Oval diamonds are popular choice for engagement rings because they offer great fire and brilliance. Similar to round diamonds in their light return, oval-cut diamonds are known for their unique shape and aesthetic appeal. This diamond shape has an additional advantage of appearing larger than its actual carat size because of its elongated shape. When set in engagement rings, oval-cut diamonds serve to elongate fingers, which gives them an air of grace and elegance.

Pear-Shaped Diamonds

Pear-Shaped Diamonds are typically a combination of a round and a marquise shape. A quality Pear diamond ought to have very good or excellent symmetry, and the point of the diamond should be in line with the apex of the rounded end. A pear-shaped diamond should be set with a prong at the point of the stone – this ensures that most flaws and inclusions will be covered by a prong. Pear diamonds typically contain 58 facets, which allows light to pass through the diamond much in the way light passes through a round diamond.
