You have probably heard of the round brilliant cut and the princess cut diamond, but have you explored some of the other fancy cut diamond shapes? There are many Fancy Shapes to choose from for engagement rings, pendants, diamond earrings and other styles of diamond jewellery. In brief fancy cuts are diamonds that are cut from the rough in more of a way to retain more of the carat weight. Each fancy cut is different and appeals to different tastes. As well as the two classics - round brilliant and princess cut, there are six more fancy shapes we sell at Steven Stone. These are as follows;
Emerald Cut Diamond
The emerald cut is for those that love vintage, art deco style jewellery. The shape is rectangular with diagonally cut corners. The cut is also known as the ‘step cut’ due to its long lines which look like steps when viewed from above.
Oval Cut Diamonds
Oval shapes are basically a modified version of the round brilliant cut diamond. The shape is longer, has 56 facets and has a recommended length to width ratio of 1.5:1.
Marquise Cut Diamond
The marquise diamond is an elongated boat like shape with striking pointed ends. The shape was developed in the 1740’s and supposedly named after King Louis XIV.
Pear Shaped Diamond
The pear shaped diamond has a rain drop shape and is another modified version of the round brilliant cut diamond. The stone has 56 – 58 facets and looks particularly nice set in a diamond pendant.
Radiant Cut Diamonds
The radiant cut has a similar look to the princess cut diamond except it has polished, cut corners. The diamond is slightly more rectangular shaped then the princess cut and looks great set on in a beautiful engagement ring setting.
Cushion Cut Diamond
The cushion cut shape is another vintage style diamond, shape like a square with rounded corners – resembling a pillow or cushion. The cut is made up of 58 facets and is an attractive alternative to the round brilliant cut diamond.
Asscher Cut Diamond
The Asscher cut has a simular step cut arrangement to the emerald cut diamond but has more of a square shape. A typical ratio is 1.00mm to 1.05mm and was developed in the early 20th century.
