Heart-cut diamond:

Characteristics:

Heart shaped diamonds are essentially pear shaped diamonds with a cleft at the top. They are the ultimate symbol of romance, and more and more people are choosing heart cut diamonds for engagement and anniversary rings. As with all certified loose diamonds, the beauty of the diamond depends on the skill of the cutter.

Choosing an Heart-Cut Diamond:

The heart is the ultimate symbol of love. And since most heart-shape diamonds are nearly round, each has the advantage of having a nearly round pavilion that provides its beautiful brilliance.
