Selecting Your Heart Shaped Diamond

A heart shaped diamond is a unique cut. While in theory, it is a pear cut with a cleft at the top, the cutter's skill is essential to produce a fiery, brilliant heart shape.

Shoppers are pleased to hear that a heart shaped diamond appears larger than it's carat size when compared to other cuts. But no two heart shaped diamonds are the same, making this a difficult cut to buy online sight unseen. While great deals can be obtained buy buying your diamond online, make sure you go with a seller who shows you a picture of the actual diamond you are buying. Not a stock image used for all of their heart shaped stones.

Set your heart shaped diamond in a tapered baguette setting, like the one above from James Allen for a timeless yet whimsical look

My recommendation is to go with who provides actual images and GIA certification documents for each of the diamonds on their site. Additionally, you can use their "Virtual loupe" to do a close up inspection of their stones.
