Universal symbol of love

Heart Shape diamonds are high-quality diamonds cut into the shape of the universal symbol of love and are undoubtedly the most romantic of all shapes. They have modified brilliants as the cut is based on the Round Brilliant Cut, and the standard cut has 59 facets. Heart Shape diamonds are a very popular choice especially as solitaire pendants as well as promise rings. It is best to pick out a Heart Shape diamond that is at least above 1-carat weight. Because of its complex shape, the shape of the heart will be difficult to see with stones below 1 carat.

Only for skilled diamond cutters

This is one of the more complex shapes and more so than with any other shape, the quality of a Heart Shape diamond heavily depends on the skill of the cutter. It is important to find a Heart Shape diamond with even lobes and a well-defined outline. The lobes should be well-rounded instead of tapering and clearly defined. The complexity of the shape requires skilled cutting to ensure optimum brilliance. When choosing a Heart Shape diamond, symmetry is a very important characteristic because it is critical that the two halves of the heart are identical to create a pleasant and obvious heart silhouette.

Different shapes for different jewelry

Just as with most other Fancy Cuts, Heart Shape diamonds can vary in their shape from narrow to fat. The choice eventually comes down to personal preference, but the length-to-width ratio of the classic Heart Shape diamond is between 0.90 and 1.00. For diamonds to be set in pendants, you may prefer a cut that is slightly narrower with a ratio between 1.05 and 1.15. And for stones to be set in rings as a solitaire, a slightly wider cut may be more appealing, with a ratio ranging from 0.80 to 0.90.
