"Just In: Diamonds Encyclopedia"

Contrary to popular belief, not all diamonds yield the same shine, sparkle, and clarity. Certain cuts prioritize one over the other, yielding wildly different results. In this encyclopedia, we spell out which diamonds will suit the look you are going for while dispelling myths about diamonds. Nothing will make you want to shop faster.



Emerald Cut

The Emerald was made popular during the Art Deco era. Recognized by its long rectangular shape and large open table, this cut is considered a hall of mirrors, a stone that is crystal clear.



Round Brilliant Cut

The Round Brilliant is all about high shine and serious sparkle. The shape's 58 specific facets across the pavilion, the crown, and the girdle refract the light from beneath the stone, giving it the fiery brilliance for which it is named.



Rose Cut

The Rose cut is an elegant alternative to traditional cuts with antique-inspired style. One can recognize a rose cut from the domed top, flat base, and large triangular facets that create a sublime luster.



Oval Cut

The Oval is all about slimming lines coupled with multi-faceted brilliance. Gaining popularity in recent decades, this stone cut elicits a modern sensibility.



Old Mine Cut

These stunning diamonds were hand-cut between 1890-1930. Originally set by candlelight, the stone's facets were designed to reflect soft light. Hard to find, but treasured forever.
