Diamond Cut Chart

If you’re thinking about buying your significant other a diamond engagement ring, please know that there are different diamond cuts that you need to consider.

You’ll be able to look at different diamond cuts for rings by checking out the pictures on the website that you buy from. Or if you are doing this in person, you could always ask the jeweler to provide you with samples of the different styles of diamonds so you can get to know the cut.

Or, you can look at our explanation of the different diamond cuts below.

Here are the Various Diamond Cuts
Round Diamonds

Round Diamonds

This should seem fairly self-explanatory. A round diamond is a diamond that is round cut, and as of now, it is mainly the most popular shape of all diamonds.

In fact, roughly 75% of the diamonds available being sold today are the round diamond cut.

Pear-Shaped Diamond Cut

Pear-Shaped Diamond Cut

The pear-shaped diamond cut is actually a combination of two other diamonds. It’s a combination of the Marquise shape and the round cut diamond.
Asscher Diamond Cut

Asscher Diamond Cut

This cut first came about in 1902 in Holland and it was created by the Asscher brothers.
Princess Diamond Cut

Princess Diamond Cut

The Princess diamond cut was originally created in 1980. And as far as fancy diamond shapes are concerned, this cut is definitely considered the most popular out of the bunch.

Even more important, if you’re looking for a fancy diamond shape for your engagement ring, the Princess diamond cut is the ideal choice because of its flexibility. It fits with nearly every style ring available.

Cushion Diamond Cut

Cushion Diamond Cut

The cushion diamond cut looks like a pillow cushion, with a square cut but the corners are rounded. This is a classic cut diamond that has existed for nearly 200 years.
Radiant Diamond Cut

Radiant Diamond Cut

The radiant cut is a lively, vibrant cut of a diamond that has a rectangular shape.
Oval Diamond Cut

Oval Diamond Cut

A Marquise cut diamond is a modified brilliant cut diamond, but it has a specific football like shape.

This is a very attractive looking diamond because it’s long and narrow, which makes it also pass off the illusion of having a greater size.

When compared to other diamonds, the Marquise cut has a larger surface area than just about every other diamond shape outline.

Emerald Diamond Cut

Emerald Diamond Cut

Emerald diamond cut is a wonderful option because it leaves an open, large table after making steep cuts into the pavilion. This diamond has a hall of mirrors effect instead of the sparkle that you’re used to from a brilliant cut diamond.
Heart-Shaped Diamond Cut

Heart-Shaped Diamond Cut

This cut is obviously in the shape of a heart. The different look makes it a distinctive alternative for a verity of diamond jewelry, and it is a very popular symbol to help express your love.
