The Three Most Expensive Diamond Cuts

Diamonds are one of the most sought after resources in the world. Their beautiful luster, durability and rarity make them a popular commodity, and are used for many purposes, from diamond engagement rings to industrial manufacturing. However, the diamond’s unique properties can be further enhanced based upon its shape and cut. When looking for a diamond accessory, many people can become overwhelmed at the array of choices. At Royal Design Fine Jewelry, we offer our clients some of nature’s most exquisite diamonds, gemstones and precious metals. We want our customers to make the best purchasing decisions when shopping for diamond rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets. Are you unsure which cut or shape will hold the most value? Here is a list of the top three most expensive and popular diamond cuts. 

Brilliant Round 

The brilliant round loose diamond is by far the most expensive diamond cut available. The large number of facets required to properly cut a brilliant round stone demands skilled workmanship. And, because of the facets and shape of the diamond, light has more reflective surfaces to bounce from, creating an incredible shine and brilliance unmatched by alternatives. As an added benefit, the amazing luster helps to hide minor flaws or color defects that would otherwise stand out. However, to achieve this shape and cut, more of the diamond is etched away from the final stone, meaning that the cost of the final carat weight will be substantially more than other varieties. Yet, this stone is sure to retain its value thanks to its unique ability to outshine the competition, and it’s continually increasing popularity. 

Princess Cut

Princess cut diamonds are another popular cut that will come with a higher price tag, but are generally more affordable than brilliant round diamonds of similar weight and clarity. Similar to round cuts, princess shapes offer a lot of facets, which reflect more light. Their sleek square shape also provides a contemporary flare to ring designs making them very trendy for today’s bride to be. 

Cushion Cut

Cushion cut diamonds have been around for over 200 years, yet they are still one of the most valuable and sought after shapes available in the market. They have a semi square shape, like a pillow, with rounded corners and a curvy edge. This shape can offer a lot of glimmer, with less risk of damaging sharp corner edges like those found on princess, emerald or pear cuts.
