Diamond Shapes

Finding the perfect shape for your diamond is an important consideration. The cut must be perfect and should not be poorly proportioned. A poorly proportioned diamond or “Off Make” will never have the maximum sparkle, fire, or brilliance that it would achieve if it were properly cut. The chart with photos below shows excellent examples of well proportioned diamonds.
