The word diamond has a significant and powerful etymology: from the Greek adamas, meaning strong, invincible.  Diamond is the hardest gemstone that exists in nature and because of this it is the par excellenceemblem of eternal promise. The criteria for choosing a diamond are clarity, colour, carat and cut: four English terms that correspond to essential parameters that must guide your choice. Many people do not know that the decisive parameter is the cut.

 

Here are the 7 most popular cuts so as not to make an error and so as to leave an indelible sign in her heart:

"Research claims that a woman looks at her favourite diamond ring at least a million times in her life"

BRILLIANT OR
ROUND

The best gift is the one you can't stop looking at! DISCOVER THE DIAMOND CUTS MOST LOVED BY WOMEN | Image 0

A bit of history

The brilliant cut is the most widespread form of diamond, because it exalts the stone's capacity for diffraction, increasing its luminosity. This cut is rather recent: it was only codified at the beginning of the last century and has 58 facets. The crown is the area at the top, the ring is the greatest circumference. The cut is very complex and certainly the one that offers the best value for weight of a diamond.

 

Who to give it to

This is the ideal cut for a woman of essential style and of a classical soul. Someone who loves simplicity and  appreciates the beauty of small things. It's for a decisive and coherent temperament but also onethat is welcoming, that knows how to cherish and recognise a gift made with love.

 

Recommended match

In 'Balance' the iconic triangular mounting not only allows the diamond to emerge, giving value to dimension and luminosity, and to blending with the skin tone, but hasit perfectly set with diamonds of the other rings or earrings that have a deliberately different and irregular cut. Perfect  when coupled to the marquise and the princess cut. Much loved by our clients set on yellow gold earrings with three elements.

PEAR OR
DROP

The best gift is the one you can't stop looking at! DISCOVER THE DIAMOND CUTS MOST LOVED BY WOMEN | Image 7

A bit of history

As the name indicates the form is that of the fruit and it is much used in jewellery, because it has the advantage of exalting the light in diamonds and of adding a touch of asymmetry to the design. A pear cut diamond has 58 facets: the asymmetry is really an aspect most appreciated by many jewellers, who use the pear shape for rings, as an alternative to the classical round cut.

Who to give it to

I can really feel the perfume of beauty and feminility that accompanies a figure with a sweet, but strong soul. She loves art and literature, is elegant even in jeans and very often (sometimes too often) thinks of doing good to others.

Recommended match

Its soft shape and its splendid light are given value thanks to the contrast with the triangular design that reverberates the skin tones. Matched to the round and marquise forms, the drop cut is among the most loved rings, and in the circle series one can't but notice the sets in pink and in white gold.

PRINCESS

The best gift is the one you can't stop looking at! DISCOVER THE DIAMOND CUTS MOST LOVED BY WOMEN | Image 6

A bit of history

This type of cut was only introduced into jewellery in 1960 and has recently been defined as the "St. Valentine's cut". Why should a princess possess a princess at St. Valentine's Day? Because the "princess" of diamonds is a mix of different superimposed cuts that guarantees an effect of full brilliance and splendour. For this reason it is the most requested for declarations of love on St. Valentine's Day. 

Who to give it to

The name of the cut corresponds perfectly to the personality of the beloved woman. Second to none, it is the absolute and the empress. Rigorous but more by form that by nature. She loves life and the risks that it entails.

 

Recommended match

Alone or matched to other cuts, a princess is always a princess and will be noticed among a thousand hands and a thousand faces. With the ring it is an easy win but I'd also go for everyday use with a set of three circle earrings in pink gold or for lightness by choosing the necklace in pink gold, princess, brilliant and tourmaline.

MARQUISE O
NAVETTE

The best gift is the one you can't stop looking at! DISCOVER THE DIAMOND CUTS MOST LOVED BY WOMEN | Image 5

A bit of history

Few know that the form bears this name: according to the legend this cut has an intriguing history. It is supposed to have been invented at the court of the French king: it appears that Louis XIV commissioned it to match the stone to Jeanne Antoinette Poisson, Marquis of Pompadour, his lover. The cut is an elongated form that comes to a point at the two extremes, with the sides slightly rounded. The marquis cut exalts the visual impact of the stone, that appears larger than the round cuts of the same carat weight.

 

Who to give it to

Perfect to the intriguing, mysterious woman who does not turn down any summer's evening (or winter's), or good wine or love.

Recommended match

There's no limit to the possibilities. The marqise cut is perfectly matched to the round, the princess and the drop cuts. It stands out, almost suspended, set on circle earrings in pink gold and yellow gold, it gets noticed by eveyone when added to composed rings, it becomes the object of desire for younger people on mono cuff earrings.

TRILLIANT

The best gift is the one you can't stop looking at! DISCOVER THE DIAMOND CUTS MOST LOVED BY WOMEN | Image 4

A bit of history

This cut was launched in New York in 1960. It is considered optimal for its ability to exalt the light within the stone. Essentially it is a triangular form, with curved and straight parts, pointed and rounded angles. This cut has numerous variations: the sides, for example, can be curved or straight and also the shape of the surface is subject to different interpretations.

Who to give it to

It is the ideal cut for a woman of an audacious temperament, strong but with a sensitive spirit. She has a notable propensity for beautiful things, for starry nights, for unbridled dancing and for sea salt on her skin.

Recommended match

The triangle has the magnetic force of the oldest geometry in the world. It emerges divinely in a set of 3 or 5 rings and gives rhythmn to the composition. Among our preferred there is also the necklace in yellow gold where the triangle is the indisputable protagonist and it can be worn with elegance and nonchalance even with a white t-shirt at an aperatif with friends.

HEART

The best gift is the one you can't stop looking at! DISCOVER THE DIAMOND CUTS MOST LOVED BY WOMEN | Image 3

A bit of history

The heart cut is, essentially, in a pear shape with an inward fold on the upper side. As onr emay easily imagine it is used to stress a romantic aspect, but it is not easy to make: it usually requires quite large stones and a lot of work.

Who to give it to

Well, yes. It represents a romantic woman, a dreamer, eternal princess, lover of sunsets, of endless discussion with her friends and the smell of the sea.

Recommended match

The heart is unique and personal and in mid-dimensions can be worn matched to the brilliant cut on pink gold or as a large solitaire on white gold.

BAGUETTE

The best gift is the one you can't stop looking at! DISCOVER THE DIAMOND CUTS MOST LOVED BY WOMEN | Image 2

A bit of history

This is a type of diamond that became popular in the Art Deco period: essentially, it is a variant of the emerald cut. The baguette, that is the wand, recalls the typical French bread; it is long and rectangular, with octagonal angles and 14 facets. It can create really surprising effects and adds a strong character to the jewel. But it is also a cut that is not easy to use in jewellery. Often the baguette cut is used together with stones of other forms.

 

Who to give it to

Ideal for an eclectic woman, lover of art, of old Parisian bistrot, of Martini cocktails and of flowers on Saturday morning.

Recommended match

Because of its thin and geometric form the baguette cut perfectly pairs with the infinite variations of colour of the tourmaline ovals.
