When buying diamonds, there are many factors to consider in order to make the right choice. So, you might come across an array of terms, such as lab-grown diamonds, mined diamonds, diamond cut, shape, color, and clarity. Since this is a lot of information to take in, we recommend starting to learn topic by topic. Our team of experts at Kenny G. & Company Fine Jewelers will cover the enchanting world of diamond shapes.

One of the aspects that are often misunderstood is the difference between diamond shape and diamond cut. In a nutshell, shape refers to the external appearance of the diamond, while the cut is essentially a term used to describe the level of craftsmanship and detailed work that has been put into the cutting process of a diamond, as well as its ability to reflect light.
It is worth mentioning that there is a wide range of shapes, so we will go over the best ones, so you can keep them in mind in your buying journey. There are two main groups of shapes: the classic and the distinguished ones. In the first group, you can find the round, princess, cushion, oval, emerald, pear, marquise, square radiant, Asscher, radiant, heart, and trillion shapes. In the second one, there are baguettes, half moons, bullets, horses, old mines, and rose shapes.

Let’s go over some of the most popular diamond shapes. It is important to mention that each shape has its strengths; it all depends on the aesthetic you feel more comfortable with and the style of the piece of jewelry you will adorn with diamonds.


An ultimate classic! The round diamond shape has made the jewelry world fall in love with its unique brilliance and charm. No wonder this shape has become the all-time favorite for engagement rings. The circular silhouette highlights numerous facets, making any accessory look stellar.


This shape has an elongated appearance, and it is known for its lavish fire and elegance. The oval shape is ideal for those who are looking for a diamond ring that elongates the finger of the person wearing it. In addition, it looks super refined and modern.


As its name suggests, this shape is cut like a heart and has a pointed end at the bottom, and a curved top that forms the rounded part of the heart. It is often chosen to be featured on jewelry that is related to romance, such as engagement rings and wedding bands.


Named after a remarkable French noblewoman, Marquise de Pompadour, marquises ooze glamor and sophistication. This special shape features an elongated and boat-shaped outline with pointed ends. This specific cut can easily create the illusion of a larger diamond being placed on the jewelry, and can make you look exuberant in no time.
