Cuts & Shapes of Yellow Diamonds

Like near-colourless diamonds, Yellow diamonds can be cut into almost any shape.

Round Brilliant

As with other diamonds, the modern round brilliant cut remains the most popular cut.

Oval

The oval is a modification of the round brilliant cut. We think it suits fancy coloured diamonds better than it does white ones.

Radiant Cut

The radiant cut is even better than a princess cut. It combines the square shape with the brilliance of a brilliant cut, but the corners are cut making an octagonal shape similar to an emerald cut, making it less susceptible to accidental damage.

The diamond we show here is not sufficiently intense for it to considered as a fancy colour, although it is very attractive.

Marquise or Navette Cut

The marquise cut is also an adaptation of the round brilliant cut, which we believe also looks better in fancy coloured diamonds than it does in plain vanilla.

Some day we will find a nice marquise green diamond to show you.

Heart Shape

The heart shape is a modification of the round brilliant cut. We think it suits Yellow diamonds better than it does near-colourless ones.

Pear Shape

The pear shape is similar to the heart shape in that it is also a modification of the round brilliant cut. We have not yet owned a pear shaped green diamond to photograph, so have shown a stunning sherry coloured one. We think a pear cut will suit green diamonds better than it does near-colourless ones.

Princess Cut

The princess cut is the most successful of the modern cuts developed for diamonds. It combines the square shape with the brilliance of a brilliant cut.

Again we have not yet seen a green princess cut diamond, so we have shown a photograph of a red one instead.
