Guide to Diamond Shapes
Guide to Diamond Shapes
Diamonds come in an array of cuts and add the finishing touch to the perfect necklace, bracelet, or ring. When shopping for diamonds, it is essential to understand the different shapes and how they will look on your hand. From the classic round cut to the unique pear and emerald cuts, our large selection of diamond jewelry at Kirk Jewelers is sure to meet your tastes.
Round Cut Diamonds
The most popular of all shapes, round diamonds offer maximum brilliance. Rings from the Kirk Bridal collection feature stunning round diamonds perfect for the contemporary bride looking for a dash of shine. Mars engagement rings are also great for those shopping for round diamonds with an antique flair. Their Ever After collection features exquisite round cut diamonds set in 18K white gold adorned with diamond halos around the ring's center and accent diamonds around the band. If you are looking for a diamond that will sparkle, this is the shape for you.
Princess Cut Diamonds
The princess cut is a square-shaped diamond that became popular in the 1960s. It is the second most sought-after cut, following the round brilliant. When set in an engagement ring setting, princess diamonds give the look of a contemporary and geometric design. The princess cut is a timeless shape that elegantly combines sharp corners with femininity. Thanks to its unique sparkle, this stone has become increasingly popular among brides-to-be who want a modern and glamorous engagement ring. Princess cut diamond rings from the Kirk Bridal collection feature stunning rings with a single princess cut diamond as the center stone.
Oval Cut Diamonds
Oval diamonds possess a timeless elegance and can be worn in various ways. They are often seen in solitaire engagement rings but can also be set with other smaller accent diamonds. Mars also carries oval cut diamonds. Rings from their Modern Muses collection feature oval cut diamonds set in 18K white gold with a delicate diamond halo. The oval cut is excellent for those who want something different but classic. Rings from the Infinite Allure collection also feature oval cut diamonds in a unique setting.
Emerald Cut Diamonds
Emerald cut diamonds are rectangular with tapered corners and have fewer facets than other shapes. This gives them a more sophisticated look that is perfect for those who want something a little different and adds a bit of personality for the bride looking to spice up her style. Emerald cut rings from the Luxe collection are set with emerald cut diamonds and adorned with a halo of brilliant round diamonds. These diamonds come in several different ring designs and are perfect for the bride who appreciates nostalgia and vintage details.
Pear Shaped Diamonds
The pear cut, with its lovely balance of elegance and grace, is ideal for ladies looking for an individual engagement ring. Pear-shaped diamonds have a one-of-a-kind quality that appeals to brides-to-be who want a distinctive engagement ring—the diamond can be longer and thinner or shorter and sturdier, depending on preference and a sharp eye. The rings are perfect for giving a band a unique sense of grace. These gems will make any setting shine alone or with other accent diamonds. Engagement rings from several of the Mars collections perfectly portray this.
Cushion Cut Diamonds
Cushion cut diamonds have a softer, more romantic look than the traditional princess or round cuts. They range from oval to square in shape, and their large facets create a stunning illusion within the ring. Cushion cut rings from the Kirk Couture collection feature dazzling cushion cut diamonds set in 18K yellow gold with a double halo of round brilliant diamonds. Rings from the Mars Grand Estates collection also feature cushion cut diamond rings, some set in platinum with a double halo of round brilliant glistening diamonds that you will cherish for years to come.
