Four Most Popular Diamond Cuts

There are many diamond cuts to choose from, and it can be overwhelming for some people. Here at Pageo Fine Jewelers, we want to help make the process easier for you. In this blog post, we focus on the four most popular diamond cuts: round, cushion, oval, and emerald. Each of these diamond cuts has its own unique characteristics that set it apart from the others. Let's take a closer look at each one! Reach out to our jewelry shop in Nantucket or Newton, MA and find the diamond engagement ring of your dreams! 


The round diamond is the most popular diamond cut. It is also the most brilliant diamond cut, meaning it reflects the most light. This diamond shape has been around for centuries and continues to be a popular choice among engagement ring shoppers.


The cushion diamond is a classic diamond cut with a modern twist. It combines the best of both worlds — the round diamond's fire and brilliance, with the square diamond's elegance. This diamond cut is often used in solitaire engagement rings as well as halo engagement rings.


The oval diamond is a beautiful diamond shape that’s perfect for those who want something unique. This diamond cut has an elongated shape that makes the diamond look larger than it actually is. Oval diamonds are often used in solitaire engagement rings, but can also be used in halo or three-stone engagement rings.

Emerald Cut

The emerald cut diamond is a classic diamond cut with a rectangular shape. This diamond cut is commonly used in solitaire engagement rings, but can also be used in three-stone engagement rings or halo engagement rings. Emerald cut diamonds are best known for their unique step cut facets which create a beautiful diamond that sparkles from every angle.
