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 Oval 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 diamond shapes to choose from at Solomon Brothers Jewelers, you can select a diamond that truly reflects the personality and style of your future bride.
