Diamond Shapes

Diamonds are eternal. Additionally, when they cut it how you want, it becomes immortal! How a diamond is fashioned and how it was created both have an impact on how much it costs. Diamonds were once cut by hand, which required exceptional craftsmanship. Competent diamond cutters today use a machine to shape diamonds into their final shape as technology advances.



Diamonds come in two different shapes: the Classic Round Diamond Shape and the Fancy Diamond Shape (any shape except round brilliant shape). Learn more about each diamond shape and how it fits with our thoughtful jewelry design by reading more below. This will help you and your loved ones put together the ideal ensemble that you and they deserve.
