The diamond shape on your engagement ring reflects your unique style. The cut and setting style you choose are essential factors in a diamond’s radiance and brilliance, but the shape of your lab-grown diamond is perhaps the most significant aspect.
Here are some of the most popular lab-grown diamond shapes that you can choose for your engagement rings.
Oval Brilliant Diamond
The most favored exotic shape for lab-grown diamonds is oval brilliant. The brilliant cut faceting pattern of oval diamonds adds a beautiful and unique design to your ring, with plenty of fire and sparkle. The oval is a preferred cut because of its greater surface area, which makes it look bigger. The oval diamond’s shape makes your fingers appear elongated. A bow-tie effect is another feature of oval brilliant diamonds. The bow-tie effect will be minor to non-existent in a well-cut oval diamond.
Round Brilliant Diamond
Round brilliant diamonds are a classic and elegant engagement ring option. For good reason, round brilliant diamonds are the most favored shape. The diamond shape has 57 or 58 facets and is meant to give a colorless diamond the most brilliance, fire, and sparkle.
Pear Cut Diamond
The pear brilliant cut diamond blends the sparkle of a round brilliant cut diamond with the finger-flattering shape of a marquise cut diamond.Pear cut diamonds have the widest “spread” of all the diamond forms and seem visually the biggest on the finger because of their elongated shape and wide base. Pear-shaped diamonds, like oval cuts and other elongated diamond shapes, can have a bow tie or a dark shadow that spans the diamond’s width.
Cushion Cut Diamond
Cushion cut lab-grown diamonds have moderately rounded edges that give them a distinctive look. They are a romantic design that is a wonderful blend of both round and square-shaped diamonds. Cushion cut diamonds, like round brilliant cuts, have 58 facets and a lot of brilliant shine. Cushion cuts give your engagement ring an antique or vintage look.
Emerald Cut Diamond
This dazzling diamond cut was created for emerald gemstones initially. Emerald cut diamonds are a step cut, as opposed to brilliant cut diamonds. The faceting pattern of a step-cut diamond creates a hallway of mirrors effect, making it ideal for showcasing a diamond’s color and clarity. These diamond cuts are also recognized for producing unique and dramatic light flashes.
