A good cut can enhance the colour, clarity, and brilliance of a gemstone. In this blog, we'll show you the top five most popular and beautiful gemstone cuts that will make you fall in love with them.

The classic and brilliant round cut

Round Cut

The round cut is the OG of gemstone cuts. It's been around for centuries, and it's still the most popular and classic cut of all time. Why? Because it's simply brilliant. Literally. The round cut has 58 facets (or faces) that are symmetrically arranged around the centre of the stone. This creates a balanced and harmonious look that reflects and refracts light like nobody's business.

The gorgeous round cut ring will add a touch of elegance and sophistication to your outfit, whether you're dressing up or down.

The chic and edgy princess cut

Princess Cut

The princess cut is the queen of gemstone cuts. It's the second most popular cut, especially for engagement rings. Why? Because it's chic and edgy. The princess cut has a square shape with four pointed corners. It has 49 to 144 facets, depending on the size and quality of the stone.

A bold princess cut ring will give you a lot of fire and brilliance, as well as a modern and trendy look.

The vintage and elegant gemstone cut

Cushion Cut

The cushion cut is a vintage and elegant gemstone cut that dates back to the 18th century. Why? Because it's classy and refined. The cushion cut has a square or rectangular shape with rounded corners and sides. It has 58 facets that create a soft and romantic glow, as well as a large table (or top surface) that showcases the colour and clarity of the stone.

If you're looking for a piece that's cosy and festive, you'll adore a minimal flower ring with a beautiful cushion cut diamond studded in a 14K gold setting.

The romantic and adorable heart cut

Heart Cut

The heart cut is the most romantic and adorable gemstone cut of all time. Why? Because it's sweet and sentimental. The heart cut has a heart shape that symbolises love and affection. It has 56 to 58 facets that create a lot of sparkle and fire, as well as a distinctive cleft (or notch) at the top of the stone. The heart cut is not easy to make, so it requires a lot of skill and precision from the cutter.
