What Diamond Shapes Can I Buy? | BNT Diamonds

Which different shapes of diamond does BNT Diamonds offer for investment purposes?

Diamonds come in different shapes. Each shape has different and unique characteristics that come to determine its specific quality. In most cases, BNT Diamonds uses the two following diamond shapes for investment purposes:


The round brilliant cut diamond is by far the most popular and most researched diamond shape available today. This shape has set the traditional standard for all diamond shapes. In addition, a round diamond will typically give you more flexibility in terms of balancing cut, colour, and clarity grades while still getting the fire and brilliance you want.


The princess diamond has a square rectangular appearance. Princess-cut diamonds can vary greatly in how square or rectangular they are. The cut requires more weight to be directed toward the diamond's depth in order to maximise brilliance. Depth percentages of 70% to 78% are not uncommon with these diamond shapes.

On demand, BNT Diamonds also offers other shapes such as pear, oval, heart, asscher, emerald, marquise, radiant or cushion.
