Diamond Shapes

Our new collection of engagement rings arrives hand-in-hand with an interactive customization experience. From your sustainably created diamond's shape to metal color, you can choose from a range of personal details to create the perfect symbol of your love.

 

Our expanded collection of diamond shapes means you have more options than ever, so - which shape is right for you?

Round Brilliant Diamond

A classic - the perfect balance of proportion and symmetry, this rounded shape has sparkling facets that create maximum shine.

Fun Facts 

  • Facets: 57, brilliant-cut
  • This diamond is the ultimate classic shape, and is what most of us imagine when we think of diamonds, representing 75% of all diamonds sold.
  • Created in 1919 to maximize fire and brilliance – i.e. shine. ✨

Grading Tips

  • This is the only shape that is graded Ideal on the Cut Grading Scale, because its proportions have been perfected by empirical and mathematical data.
  • Since it's cut to prioritize shine and brilliance, a stone with a lower clarity will still sparkle.
  • Since this shape is in high demand and the yield is low (more rough stone is lost during the cutting phase), Round Brilliants cost more per carat than other shapes.

Round Brilliant Diamond

Oval Diamond

Oval Diamond

Sleek symmetry merges with a soft silhouette, creating an elongated shape with perfect brilliance. It’s also our most popular diamond shape when it comes to engagement as it elongates fingers, hides inclusions and looks large with its generous surface area.

Fun Facts

  • Facets: 57, brilliant-cut
  • This diamond is the modified Round Brilliant, with the same brilliant shine with an elongated form.
  • The Oval is Vrai's most popular diamond shape, elongates fingers, hides inclusions and looks the largest out of all the stones because of its surface area.

Grading Tips

  • Since it's cut to prioritize shine and brilliance, a stone with a lower clarity will still sparkle.
  • Smaller ovals hide lower color and clarity grades than larger ones.
  • Most Ovals have a dark "bow-tie" effect in their center - if a diamond is cut well this bow-tie will be minimal.
  • It's longer shape creates the illusion of a greater size compared to other diamond shapes. :)
  • Look for a shape with an appealing proportion - not too long, not too wide, just right for you.

Emerald Diamond

This rectangular shape features step-cut facets running down the sides to draw your attention towards the center of the stone. These long, narrow facets add depth and dimension while drawing in light and spotlighting clarity, making this shape feel both modern and elegant.

Fun Facts 

  • Facets: 49, step-cut
  • Unlike a Round Brilliant diamond, The Emerald's step-cut creates a "hall of mirrors" effect that's quite beautiful and elegant
  • Beyonce has an 18 ct emerald engagement ring (like our Emerald Duet!), so you know this is a powerful shape :)

Grading Tips 

  • We recommend a VS1 clarity or higher as the step-cut facets can make any inclusions or imperfections more visible. We are happy to advise if our diamonds are "eye-clean" or show no inclusions to the naked eye.

Emerald Diamond

Pear Diamond

Pear Diamond

A teardrop silhouette leads to a single point, balancing sparkling facets with a pleasing proportion and brilliant depth while elongating the wearer’s fingers.

Fun Facts 

  • Facets: 56, brilliant-cut
  • The Pear finds the sweet spot between a Round Brilliant and Marquise shape with soft curves.
  • The largest diamond ever cut is a 530.2ct Pear diamond in Queen Elizabeth's sceptre (see photo below).

Grading Tips 

  • Pears may possess a slight "bow-tie" effect in its center, so examine your diamond for what you feel is most appealing.
  • Elongated and more shallow stones, like an Oval or a Pear, will look larger than a Cushion or a Princess of the same carat weight.

Cushion Diamond

Called a “Cushion” for its pillow-like appearance, this soft square shape features rounded corners and a brilliant cut. Large facets highlight clarity, disguise blemishes and maximize radiance, creating the look of crushed ice when reflecting light.

Fun Facts 

  • Facets: 77
  • We like to call this shape a pillow for your hand - the perfect balance between a square diamond and round brilliant with its soft curves.
  • Also known as a "candlelight diamond" 🕯️

Grading Tips 

  • Since the cushion shape prioritizes brilliance with its many facets, your diamond can have a slightly lower clarity grading.
  • Classic cushions may include the words "old mine cut or "antique-style" and exhibit a crushed-ice like appearance in which there's no identifiable pattern. Our Cushions are cut for a modern appeal - more facets for more shine, with more identifiable patterns.

Cushion Diamond

Marquise Diamond

Marquise Diamond

One of two new shapes to be introduced into our engagement collection, our Marquise is an appealing balance of proportion and symmetry. This stunning elliptical shape features share edges that spotlight carat weight and brilliance.

Fun Facts

  • Facets: 55, brilliant-cut
  • Named after King Louis XIV of France's mistress, the Marquise of Pompadour – this shape is designed to look like her "perfect mouth."
  • Our newest shape. We see the Marquise as a symbol for when two amazing things overlap, within yourself or between you and a partner. It's the in-between space that holds the most meaning.

Grading Tips

  • Our Marquise diamond features appealing points on either end rather than curved pints or wings. Look for a diamond that has balanced proportions.
  • Marquise diamonds may possess a "bow-tie" appearance in their center. Examine your diamond for the most appealing amount to your liking.
  • Since its long and narrow, the diamond can appear larger than other shapes by carat weight. Your fingers may look slimmer.

Trillion Diamond

So many of you have reached out for larger versions of this unique shape that we decided to introduce the Trillion diamond as an option for your engagement ring. This triangular shape with large facets creates brilliant depth and dimension to maximize radiance and attract natural attention.

Fun Facts 

  • Facets: 37, brilliant-cut
  • This shape was first invented in Amsterdam
  • Our Trillion has slightly upturned edges for a softer look.

Grading Tips 

  • Trillion diamonds are cut shallow and wide, making them appear larger than other diamond shapes by carat weight.
  • Since Trillions are cut more shallow (creating less depth to reflect light) dust and dirt covering the stone can impact their shine. We recommend an easy regular cleaning - view our natural cleaning tips here.

Marquise Diamond

Asscher Diamond

The Asscher diamond is the embodiment of the elegance and glamour of the art deco era merging a modern style with fine craftsmanship. The step cut X-shaped facets with clean geometric lines spotlight Asscher’s mesmerizing lustre and gives it a distinctive appeal.

  • Asscher is an octagonal diamond with a square outline and layered facets
  • This cut was invented in 1902 by the Asscher Brothers of Holland and regain its popularity in 2002 after its Centennial birthday

Grading Tips

  • Resembling an emerald diamond, the Asscher has larger step facets, a higher crown, and a smaller table
  • The Asscher’s facets create concentric squares when looking down at the diamond that gives it its distinctive appeal
  • Look for Asscher cuts with higher color grades as the larger facets spotlight color more than brilliant cuts

  • The Princess cut is a true square diamond with sharp corners
  • It was invented in 1979

Grading Tips 

  • The Chevron-shaped bottom facets give it unique scintillation and brightness
