Heart Cut Diamond
The heart-shape diamond is the most romantic of all diamond cuts. Considered a modified brilliant cut like the marquis-cut diamond, the oval-cut diamond, and the pear-shaped cut diamond, the heart-shape diamond can be described as a pear shaped diamond with a cleft at the top. The heart-shaped cut diamond is a popular choice for diamond earrings, diamond necklaces, and diamond pendants. The heart-shape cut diamond is usually cut with 59 facets, but like many of the other fancy cut diamonds, the number of facets can vary depending on the shape of the rough diamond.
The heart-shape cut diamond is probably the most difficult diamond cut to achieve proper symmetry. The cut will determine how much fire (sparkle) the diamond emits. A beautiful heart-shape diamond will be symmetrical with the cleft (between the two lobes) being sharp and distinct, and the wings (the sides as they curve down to the point) having a very slightly rounded shape. When the diamond is cut poorly, the heart-shape cut diamond will not exhibit sparkle (brilliance) while an excellent cut will exhibit extraordinary brilliance. The heart-shape cut diamond is one of the best shapes to show off the color of the diamond due to its width and depth. It is therefore a popular cut when using with fancy color diamonds.
Avital and Co., located in the heart of the world famous Diamond District in New York City (NYC), recommends when choosing a heart-shape cut diamond for a diamond engagement ring a four-claw setting is used. However Avital and Co. is able to set a heart-shape cut diamond in any setting of your choice.
Like the marquis-cut diamond, the oval-cut diamond, and the pear-shaped cut diamond, the heart-shape cut diamond can also have a “bow tie” effect. Therefore Avital and Co., located in the heart of the world famous Diamond District in New York City (NYC), recommends that the heart-shape cut diamond have a length to width ratio between .90 and 1.10.
