Heart Cut Diamonds
The fancy-shaped Heart diamond is for the confident woman who is all heart. While sometimes selected for engagement rings, it makes a beautiful choice for pendants in fancy colors such as yellow, pink or red. The unique look of the heart-shaped diamond helps make it a distinctive choice for a variety of diamond jewelry. This unique shape is similar to a pear-cut diamond, differentiated by two rounded edges and a cleft at the top. Most high-quality heart-shaped diamonds are cut with 58 facets, although there are some variants depending on the cutting technique used.
For a more traditional heart-shaped diamond, look for length-to-width ratios between .90 and 1.10.
