Shop By Shape:
The most popular of all diamond cuts accounting for more than half of all diamonds sold. The Round diamond boasts more brilliance and fire than any other cut.
By combining a square cut with rounded corners diamond cutters create a diamond shaped much like a pillow or cushion. This cut is perfect for traditional ring settings.
A combination cut between a marquise shape and a round diamond, pear shaped diamonds are perfect for dangle earrings as well as solitaire rings.
An unmistakable symbol of love, heart-shaped loose diamonds are popular choices for solitaire pendants and rings and look best above .50 carats.

Loose diamond certification and grading is based on the “Four Cs” of diamond attributes or qualities. The better the combination of these factors, the more valuable the diamond.
The clarity of a diamond relates to the number of surface defects that exist called blemishes, combined with the internal characteristics called inclusions.
Inclusions are liquids, solids or gases trapped in the mineral as it formed.
Carat is a measurement unit of mass and refers to the size of the diamond, this is sometimes referred to as the metric carat.
Carat size is divisible by 100 points of two milligrams each. A paragon is a flawless stone of at least 100 carats.
In a perfect world a diamond would have no colour, but in reality chemical impurities or structural defects exist and affect colour.
Diamonds occur in a variety of colours including white, blue, steel gray, orange, pink green and red.
The cut of a diamond should not be confused with the shape. The cut refers to the proportioning, polish and symmetry.
