Spotlight on Different Diamond Shapes

If you are shopping for an engagement ring in Chicago, then you've undoubtedly found that there are many different diamond shapes out there. If you're looking for a diamond necklace, earrings, or ring, ask your local custom jeweler to show you the different shapes in person so you can get a better feel for what you prefer. In the interim, read this article to become acquainted with the basics of diamond shapes.

The round diamond is the most popular diamond ring in Chicago, and will give you the brilliance you are looking for in an engagement ring. The princess cut is the most popular non-round diamond, and is a very unique choice for an engagement ring. The emerald, asscher, heart, and oval cuts are also distinctive. If you want a larger-looking diamond, take a look at the marquise cut, which is designed to maximize carat weight. The teardrop-like radiant diamond creates a slimming effect on the fingers, while the cushion-cut diamond (also known as pillow-cut) has rounded corners and large facets to create increased brilliance.
