Diamonds, as Marilyn Monroe sang, are a girls best friend and they are also April's birth stone. Diamonds are valued for their incredible brilliance and hardness. On the Mohs scale of hardness diamonds are a 10. Diamonds range from the colorless D-F, to the near colorless G-I, to pink, blue and fancy yellow. They also range in clarity from flawless to VVS, VS, SI to imperfect. Please view our diamond buying guide for more information. Diamonds, simply, are pure carbon and are appreciated for their dispersion, hardness and brilliance.

Diamond Shapes: Round Brilliant Diamond

The most popular diamond shape is the round brilliant cut. With its 58 facets and amazing brilliance, the round diamond has traditionally been the most popular diamond cut.

Fancy Shape diamond

Nothing says I love you more than a fancy shape diamond. Fancy shape diamonds have been very popular throughout the many eras of history. When Richard Burton said I love you to Liz Taylor, he gave her the Harry Winston big pear shape diamond. Then, everyone wanted a pear shape diamond. The marquise cut diamond had a wonderful resurgence during the 1970's-80's, and still continues to be popular today. We have also seen a big increase in popularity for emerald cut diamonds and asscher cut diamonds. But the big three for fancy shapes today are oval cuts, princess cuts and radiant cut diamonds. Please remember TheCheapDiamonds.com only sells diamonds with a certificate from GIA, EGL or AGI laboratories.
