A striking and more unusual shape than the round or princess diamonds, if you’re a fan of the pear-shaped diamond, you clearly like to stand out from the crowd. Perfect for those who like to mix it up, you can wear your pear or ‘teardrop’ diamond facing either way depending on your mood. If you're a pear-cut kind of girl, you definitely can't sit still and enjoy nothing better than letting loose and trying new things!

The diamond cut of choice for Daisy Buchanan in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic The Great Gatsby, the cushion diamond looks opulent because of its rounded corners and curved sides, and is great for those who love luxury. First introduced to the jewellery market in the 1800s, this diamond is the ideal choice for anyone who enjoys that touch of vintage class. Are you opting for a cushion-cut? You're a lover of the sweeping romance of older times, and have a natural elegance that can't be rivalled.
Fashion-forward yet vintage-inspired, the asscher cut diamond has been sported more recently by the likes Pippa Middleton in a suitably eye-catching art deco design. If you're in love with this asscher shape, you're definitely a confident trend-setter with an air of sophistication. Just like you, your parties are always unforgettably chic, effortlessly charming, and the talk of the town.
Feminine and romantic, if you prefer a heart-shaped diamond, you’re someone who loves to make a statement and who cherishes pure, strong connections with a few special people.
