When it comes to choosing an engagement ring or other precious jewelry, nothing quite captivates like diamonds. These timeless gems boast a unique beauty, durability, and sparkle that make hearts flutter a little faster. You may have delved into the four Cs of diamonds, but let’s not forget a crucial factor: the diamond’s shape.

The shape of a diamond plays a crucial role in its sparkle, perceived size, and even its personal value. Yes, you read that right, the shape affects the price.

When it comes to diamond shapes, there’s a world of options, from the classic round to the dreamy pear and elegant emerald. Each shape has its own story to tell and unique advantages. Some shapes carry an ancient allure, while others reflect modern innovation. Exploring their various aesthetics is truly fascinating.

If you’re aiming to create an engagement ring that truly reflects your personal style and the era you live in, choosing the right diamond shape is key.

Understanding the difference between diamond shape and cut is also crucial. While cut describes a diamond’s proportions and reflective properties, shape refers to its fundamental geometry and visual expression. It’s akin to selecting the perfect frame for a masterpiece—the shape should complement the diamond’s beauty and highlight its unique qualities.

When exploring the market for loose diamonds, you’ll often encounter terms like “cut” instead of “shape.” It’s important to remember that while these terms are often used interchangeably, they refer to different aspects of the diamond’s appearance and character.

Which diamond shapes will be most popular in 2024?

Fashion is ever-changing, and the same goes for diamonds. Different diamond shapes come and go, and it’s perfectly fine to follow your own style rather than the latest trends.

In 2024, the diamond shapes that truly stand out are the round brilliants and elegant elongated cuts like oval, pear, and emerald. While round diamonds remain incredibly popular, there’s room for other shapes to shine. Following the round brilliants, elongated cuts are the most sought-after this year.

Choosing the right diamond cut is key if you want jewelry that keeps up with the latest trends. Whether you’re shopping for earrings, a necklace, or other pieces, the trendy diamond shapes for 2024 can truly add a unique touch and extra sparkle to your look.

1. The most popular diamond shape in 2024
The round shape will likely always be number one, two, or three on the list! But again, the classic round look will always be a winner, even this year. The round solitaire ring is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “engagement ring.”

Round diamonds are just so classic and beloved by many, and there’s a good reason for it! These beautiful gems are cut to perfection to catch the light and sparkle from almost every angle. They’ve been favorites for decades, especially when it comes to engagement rings. The wonderful thing about round diamonds is that they suit any style and can elegantly conceal minor flaws. They’re truly timeless and universally beautiful.

2. A secure second place for the Emerald cut
Here’s the steady runner-up, the emerald cut. In fact, this shape was a bestseller all throughout 2023, and the favorite continues into 2024 as a secure second place. Beautiful, angular, and elegant. The more antique cut and classic white color provide a modern and timeless look that most people yearn for, and we definitely understand why!

3. Oval and pear-shaped tied for third place
These two fantastic shapes share third place on the list. The oval shape has gained increased popularity as it has the advantage of appearing larger to the eye compared to, say, the round diamond. Who doesn’t want a diamond that looks bigger! The oval shape has an elegant and streamlined appeal that appeals to many modern jewelry designers and enthusiasts.

The pear shape is more classic and adds a certain edge and individuality to an engagement ring. With its unique shape and traditional aesthetics, it adds a subtle but significant difference to any design. It’s the perfect shape for those who want to stand out a bit from the crowd and bring a timeless elegance to their jewelry.

How to Measure

The Tape Method

1. Grab a tape measure, string, or strip of paper.

2. Wrap it around the finger you’ll wear your ring on—if you’re creating a ring stack, consider where on your finger the ring will sit—and mark where it joins with a pen.

3. Lay your string or paper strip on a flat surface and measure the length up to the mark using a ruler. Use the chart above to match the measurement to the closest Abelstedt ring size.
