Diamond Shape

There are two different diamond shape categories – round and non-round, also known as fancy shaped. Round diamonds have traditionally been the most in-demand shape, but today non-round cuts such as princess and cushion are gaining in popularity.

Did You Know? Round diamonds are the only diamonds with the necessary dimensions and proportions to be graded as ideal (the cut that reflects the maximum amount of light)..

With so many different shapes to choose from at Solomon Brothers, you can select a diamond that truly reflects the personality and style of your future bride. Browse through our selection of diamond shapes below to learn more about each.
