The New Classic
The oval cut diamond is hot, hot, hot (check out my previous post!) but it may have some competition with these three beauties pictured here. Fancy shape diamonds are making a major impact in engagement ring designs and I have to say, it's about time!
As a fancy diamond wearer myself, I have always admired and adored fancy shaped diamonds for their uniqueness and individuality. They are not nearly as popular as the beautiful round brilliant cut diamond but they all have something special in their own way.
The cushion cut diamond at left quickly became one of the most popular fancy shape diamonds over the last 10 years and its popularity is showing no signs of slowing down. It is a happy medium between the round brilliant cut diamond and a fancy cut diamond as its brilliant cut facets sparkle and shine like the best of them.
The pear shape diamond creates such an elegant and elongated look on the finger and is reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour thanks to Elizabeth Taylor and her now infamous, Taylor-Burton 69.42ct pear shape stunner. This diamond had major impact on the world of diamonds and design and was even on display at Cartier for a small amount of time, fetching over 6000 visitors per day!
Last but not least is the emerald cut diamond pictured on the right. This elegant shape has forever been my favourite and even though its sparkle factor ranks lower on the charts, it's this subtle shimmer and glow that will always win over my heart.
We have shown these three beautiful diamonds in the most simplistic of designs, a timeless and delicate yellow gold mounting. This understated design is the perfect complement to any fancy shape diamond as it focuses all of the attention right where it needs to be. The new classic is all about fancies and we couldn't agree more!
