Different Shapes of Diamonds

Diamonds come in various shapes, each with its own unique characteristics and allure. From the classic round brilliant cut to the elegant princess, emerald, and oval shapes, there's a shape to suit every style and preference. The round brilliant cut, with its meticulously studied proportions, stands as the epitome of diamond perfection, carrying timeless symbolism and universal appeal. While round diamonds are renowned for their brilliance and elegance, fancy-shaped diamonds offer distinct charm at a generally lower cost. However, assessing their quality requires careful consideration of proportions and size.

Ultimately, the choice of diamond shape is often dictated by the original rough diamond's shape and the positioning of any natural imperfections, known as inclusions. Explore our curated collection of diamond shapes to find the perfect expression of your unique style and personality.

Advantages of Choosing Lab-Grown Diamonds

Minimal Environmental Impact

Produced in controlled environments, lab-grown diamonds minimize ecological harm compared to traditional mining methods and promote sustainability in the jewelry industry.


Offering high-quality diamonds at a more accessible price point, lab-grown diamonds provide exceptional value without compromising on beauty, ethics, or sustainability.

How and where are diamonds formed?

Diamonds form deep within the Earth's mantle under intense heat and pressure, crystallizing carbon atoms into the diamond structure. Originating around 100 miles below the surface, temperatures surpass 2,200 degrees Fahrenheit, and pressure exceeds millions of pounds per square inch. Often transported by ancient volcanic eruptions, diamonds reside in igneous rocks like kimberlite pipes. Over time, erosion releases diamonds into riverbeds and sedimentary deposits. This journey, spanning millions to billions of years, yields only a fraction of intact diamonds. Lab-grown diamonds, created in controlled environments, replicate Earth's conditions through high-pressure high-temperature (HPHT) or chemical vapor deposition (CVD) methods.

Which diamond shape is best?

The best diamond shape depends on personal preference and style. Round diamonds are classic and versatile, offering timeless elegance, while fancy shapes like princess, cushion, and oval diamonds provide a unique and modern aesthetic.

Generally, round diamonds tend to be the most expensive due to their popularity and the higher demand for well-cut round stones. However, certain fancy shapes like emerald and asscher can also command high prices based on factors like rarity and craftsmanship.

Round diamonds are renowned for their exceptional brilliance and sparkle due to their precise faceting. Their symmetrical shape and optimal light reflection properties make them the preferred choice for maximum sparkle.

A poor cut diamond refers to a stone that has been cut too shallow or too deep, resulting in light leakage and reduced brilliance. Poorly cut diamonds may appear dull and lackluster compared to well-cut stones.

Currently, elongated fancy shapes like oval, pear, and marquise diamonds are trending due to their flattering appearance and unique appeal. These shapes offer a modern twist on traditional diamond cuts.

The best diamond color depends on personal preference and budget. Colorless diamonds (D-F) are highly valued for their pure, icy appearance, while near-colorless (G-J) diamonds offer excellent value and minimal discernible color.

Generally, colorless diamonds (D-F) are the most costly due to their rarity and exceptional purity. As the color grade moves down the scale, the diamonds tend to become more affordable.

Intensely colored diamonds, known as fancy color diamonds, can be extremely expensive, especially those with vivid and saturated hues like blue, pink, and red. These rare colors are highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts, commanding premium prices.
