4 C’s: The Shape

The shape of a diamond is its outer contour. A diamond’s shape has no bearing on the quality of the stone. Each shape can be as beautiful as another, provided the stone is well-cut and proportioned.

Shape is a choice for the individual. It reflects a personal taste preference.

There is a large variety of shapes to choose from and each one has its attributes. Some diamonds are multifaceted cuts (i.e. they have many facets), such as the round brilliant, the princess and the oval cuts. Other diamonds are step-cuts (i.e. they have less facets) such as the emerald and asscher cuts.

Each shape presents a multitude of designs options, with varying complexities determining its quality.
