Diamonds come in many different shapes and each shape has different features. ELIZZA offers engagement rings with all diamond shapes. Yet, the round cut diamond is still one of the most valuable ones and, thus, a popular choice for engagement rings, wedding rings & wedding jewelry in general. Learn more about the different shapes and their history.
Round Brilliant Shape
More fire and brilliance than any other shape – obviously the most recommendable diamond shape. Round cut diamonds dominate more than half of the world market. Not least because this cut guarantees the best facet development and, thus, creates a maximum of fire within the diamond.
What is special about emerald cut diamonds is their vintage look and charm of a past era. Many style icons, for example Grace Kelly, preferred this unique shape. The emerald shape is one of the first diamond shapes that found its way into the jewelry industry. Their clarity and larger, open table make them the perfect diamond for vintage engagement rings.
The pear cut is also often called teardrop or pendeloque cut. Its unique shape and avant-garde look are popular for engagement rings with an extravagant touch. Elizabeth Taylor made this diamond shape internationally famous.
The oval cut is a mix between the round brilliant and the pear cut. It is the perfect choice if the diamond should have an exotic shape but also the glamour of a brilliant. Due to their length-to-width ratio, oval diamonds can vary immensely concerning their dramatic look.
This rare shape shows unique symbolism and is the perfect way to carry your heart on your finger. In 2013, Lady Gaga’s former fiancé gave her one of the most exclusive engagement rings with a heart-shaped diamond. The heart shape became the theme of design and fine pavé setting was used to create initials.
Like the brilliant, the princess diamond is a very classic choice and, thus, serves as a great alternative to the round brilliant cut. Though it shares the same acceptance for solitaire rings, the princess cut diamond is fundamentally different. It has edges and curves. Only the proportions and tastes for beauty are different. Often, women choose between these two models.
The Asscher cut offers a beautiful vintage shape of timeless elegance. It is very similar to the emerald cut. Its unique brilliance and incredible fire create a unique optical firework. It might remind you of a hall of mirrors full of illusions.
The mix of its rectangular but also square shape, which combines the brilliance and depth of the round brilliant, princess and emerald cut, contributes to the radiant diamond being the most sparkling rectangular cut of all. This makes it a beautiful choice for an exotic diamond.
Its square shape is similar to the shape of a cushion. This diamond shape is a rare and unique choice. Its large facets ensure the diamond to be highly light-flooded, thus creating a wide range of spectral colors. The cushion cut is used more and more often as the center diamond in an engagement ring – ELIZZA’s campaign in 2016 displayed such a spectacular engagement ring as the cover of the campaign.
This diamond shape, which was commissioned in the 18th century by a king to please his mistress Madame de Pompadour, still embodies the rococo style and offers a perfect way to maximize the carat weight and to optically elongate the finger. For some time now, individual designers offer this cut as an eternity ring as well.
