Quintessentially romantic, heart-shaped diamonds were created with exceptional sparkle in mind, having a modified brilliant diamond shape comparable to pear-cut diamonds. Depending on its length-to-width ratio, this diamond cut can have a standard heart shape or be narrow or wide. Since this particular diamond cut tends to show a bit of color in its point, you may want to opt for a higher color grade than you would for a round diamond, for example.
Heart-shaped diamonds are popular as center stones in diamond engagement rings, but they also look fantastic when set in pendants, bracelets, and earrings. Just as you would with other diamond cuts, it is crucial to select the proper elements when buying a heart-shaped diamond. Ideally, the length-to-width ratio should be as close to 1.00 as possible. The diamond you choose should also have perfect symmetry on both sides.
