There are three basic styles that most diamonds fall into: The Brilliant cut, step cut and mixed cut. Brilliant cut diamonds include round, pear, oval, marquise and heart cut diamonds. Step cut diamonds feature rows of facets positioned in a step-like fashion. Most step cut diamonds have four sides and a rectangular shape, such as emerald cut. Mixed cut diamonds combine the qualities of the brilliant and step cut diamonds. The most popular example of a mixed cut diamond is the princess cut diamond.

Some examples of different diamond shapes include:
  • Princess-cut diamonds
  • Round brilliant cut diamonds
  • Marquise diamonds
  • Emerald cut
  • Trillion cut diamonds
  • Oval shaped diamonds
