Choosing Your Diamond Cut ~ Bespoke Diamonds

Postby Bespoke Diamonds Jewellers » Sat May 26, 2018 9:53 am

Hello!
I hope you are all enjoying the wonderful sunshine :)
This week we're talking diamond cuts and how to decide which one is for you. All diamonds are beautiful but it is true to say that some cuts may suit others more either due to their shape or their properties.
So here is some info on our most common cuts of diamond to help you make your decision a little easier!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Round Brilliant Cut
This is the classic cut of diamond that we all know and love. The round brilliant cut diamond is the most sparkly cut and has the highest brilliance. It has 57-58 facets and has the best light reflection when compared with other diamond cuts. The round cut also costs more per carat than other cuts but with the higher cost comes some great benefits.

Princess Cut Diamond
The princess cut diamond is the next most popular diamond cut. It is usually square shape and has sides of equal lengths. When compared with round brilliant cuts, it is quite similar in brilliance. However, these are usually cheaper than round cuts but they can have a higher amount of facets, up to 76. You can't help but feel like royalty when you wear this beautiful diamond cut.

Oval Cut Diamond
The great thing about oval stones is that they appear larger than say the same size stone in a round brilliant cut. This is due to the surface area of the oval cut diamond is larger at the top. It is estimated that a 1.00ct oval stone would appear 10% larger than the same size round cut. Basically, you’re getting the same carat weight, that looks larger at (usually) a lower price!

Pear Cut Diamond
The pear cut is one of the more modern cuts that has recently grown dramatically in popularity in recent years. Pear cut is a combination of the marquise and round cut diamond, so it tapered on one end and round at the other. The dimensions are very important when it comes to choosing a pear cut. This is a more unusual cut of diamond and is a great statement piece.

Marquise Cut Diamond
A marquise can also be referred to as the eye/football-shaped diamond, but is simply an elliptical shape with pointed ends. This shape is often said to make the finger appear narrower and due to its elongated shape. It has about 58 facets so it is guaranteed to reflect light and sparkle for the lifetime of the ring!
