Welcome to Nazar's & co. Jewelers!

In the world of fine jewelry, diamonds hold a unique allure, their sparkle, and allure captivate hearts and minds alike. Among the key elements that define a diamond’s cost and aesthetic appeal, its shape stands out. With this blog post, we hope to enhance your understanding of the influence that diamond shapes can have on cost and to help you make informed decisions when selecting your next piece from Nazar’s & Co. Jewelers.

Understanding Diamond Shapes

The shape of a diamond is more than a matter of aesthetics. It’s a reflection of the diamond’s geometry, its facets, and the way it interacts with light to create its unique sparkle. Common shapes include: 


  • Classic round
  • Elegant princess
  • Timeless oval
  • Distinct marquise
  • Soft-cushioned cushion cut 


More adventurous shapes such as: 


  • Art-deco-inspired emerald
  • Asscher, radiant
  • Pear
  • Romantic hearts 

Factors that Impact the Price of a Diamond

Understanding the cost of a diamond involves more than recognizing its shape. The 4Cs – Carat, Cut, Color, Clarity – play a critical role. However, the interplay between demand, supply, and rough diamond wastage also contributes significantly to the final price. As such, certain shapes tend to be pricier due to their cutting process and popularity.

Detailed Analysis of Diamond Shapes and Prices

Each diamond shape has its unique characteristics, pricing factors, and popularity levels. It’s crucial to understand these before investing in any piece of diamond jewelry. Here, we will explore the ten most popular diamond shapes and their relative costs.
