At Kennedy Jewellers in Coffs Harbour, we have provided a list of diamond shapes available and their associated personality meanings to help you along your journey to finding the perfect ring for your soon-to-be fiancée.
Round Brilliant – Traditionalist
Classic and timeless, this is the most popular cut. Round brilliant is a 58-facet cut that is calibrated through a precise formula that achieves maximum fire and brilliance. Brides who favour this classic shape are traditionalists at heart, and recognize a good thing when they see it.
Oval – Sophistication
This cut is oval in shape with faceting of the round brilliant cut diamond. Essentially an elongated circle, an oval-shaped diamond can have just as many facets as a round-cut stone, which means it has the capacity to sparkle just as much. This elegant shape is a favourite among sophisticated brides who are also striving for something unique.
Marquise – flair for adventure
The marquise cut was named after the Marquise de Pompadour after King Louis XIV commissioned its creation in honour of her dazzling smile. It has an elongated shape with pointed ends. Because of their shape, marquise-cut diamonds often appear larger than life. The shape of the stone is made to maximize carat weight, which can appeal to brides with a flair for drama or want a life full of adventure
Pear Shaped – individualist
Shaped like a sparkling teardrop, the pear-shaped diamond is a hybrid of styles. Taking its cues from both the oval and marquise, this unique shape is a perfect choice for those who play by their own set of rules and think that two is better than one.
Heart Shaped – confidence queen
When choosing a heart-shaped cut, look for a stone with an even symmetrical shape, cut deep enough for maximum brilliance. Bashful brides who shy away from the spotlight need not consider this finely-crafted shape, as they’ll be sure to attract attention wherever they go.
Princess Cut – Modern sensibility
This is a square cut that is the square equivalent to the round brilliant in terms of fire and brilliance. Brides who want a traditional-shaped engagement ring, but with a little something extra tend to fancy the princess cut. The stone’s four pointed corners make it an excellent choice for a bride with a modern sensibility.
Radiant Cut – Classic at heart
True to its name, a radiant-cut diamond catches the light in a big way. The shape mimics an emerald-cut stone but the facets allow for extra sparkle. Brides who don’t want to stray too far from the classic shapes appreciate this stone’s timeless nature.
Cushion Cut – effortless romantic
An antique style, this cut looks soft and pillowy, with rounded edges. A cushion cut can be a rectangular or square shape. cushion-cut diamond is a softer version of the princess-cut diamond. Everything from the name of the cut to the shape of the diamond is effortlessly romantic, as is the bride who wears one.
