Loose princess 切 diamonds

公主方形切割钻石具有圆形明亮式切割钻石的闪亮效果,但形状不同!

钻石的形状与切割’s Not Enough to Know the Shape You Want. Shape and 切 are often confused but know this: they aren’t the same thing.

如果您将两者混淆,最终可能会像Nate一样不幸地进行购买。 (见下面的故事)

I’m going to explain what the difference is in this 文章 between diamond shape and diamond 切. Let’s start with shape.

钻石形状

钻石有许多方形的形状。轮廓形状与切割或刻面图案不同。

钻石有许多方形的形状。轮廓形状与切割或刻面图案不同。

 

Shape refers to the basic external outline of a gemstone. Round, oval, 广场, triangular, heart, marquise, and pear are all shapes. And they all describe shapes of diamonds you might be looking for.

盖伊友好类比

足球和篮球的形状相同,甚至可以是相同的颜色。但是它们是一样的吗?不是由一个长镜头。任何孩子都可以分辨出两者之间的区别。

可能需要训练有素的专业人员才能识别出两颗圆形钻石之间的差异,但是您始终可以确定其形状。圆就是圆!

钻石切工

此图显示了构面样式或切割。一种菱形可以有多种切割模式。

Identically shaped stones can be 切, (faceted), differently. A round stone can be 切 with any number of facets and dimensions—and still be round!

在珠宝界“cut” with diamonds does not refer to shape (round, oval, etc.), but the symmetry and proportioning of a faceted stone. A diamond’s 切 greatly effects its brilliance. The more skillfully it’s been 切, the more sparkle and pizzazz it will show.

另一个家伙友好的比喻

两个相同尺寸的圆形轮胎可以具有完全不同的胎面花纹。它们的形状是相同的。他们的削减不是。同样,同一年份和型号的两辆汽车将具有相同的形状,但修剪方式可能有所不同。一个可能是敞篷车,另一个可能是硬顶。一个带有着色窗口,另一个没有。一种是金属红色,另一种是白色。

足球和篮球都是圆形的。但是它们是一样的吗?没有!你明白了。仅仅因为两颗钻石都是圆形的,并不意味着它们的切割相同。一种可能就是所谓的“全面辉煌”。另一个可能是“old European 切.”前者比后者具有更多的方面,并且通常会更加明亮和有光泽。但它们都是圆形的!

钻石命名可能会引起混淆

辐射切割

光芒四射的钻石。这种款式和祖母绿切割的每一个都有我们所说的缺口角。

The Facet Pattern of a 辐射切割 Diamond is Noticeably different Than the Emerald 切.

One of the confusions you’ll run into is that some diamond shape names have had the suffix “cut” appended to them. For example an “emerald 切” diamond refers to the stone’s 广场 or rectangular shape and the way it’s normally 切.

An emerald 切 is unique in that the corners are notched making it easier to set and making its corners stronger.

在珠宝业中,如果有人对我说:“我有一颗“祖母绿方形”钻石向您展示。”我知道它的形状是正方形,并具有祖母绿切割的独特缺口角。而且它具有独特的阶梯切割,使祖母绿切割与我在下文中详细介绍的其他切割之一不同。

Sometimes both the shape and the 切 are used in the diamond shape name to identify a single stone. A “round brilliant” diamond has a round shape and a brilliant 切.

您对生活的热爱在方形钻石中到底是什么样的?

绿宝石切割钻石。注意阶梯切面,可爱的直线。仔细看,您会看到叉下的缺口角。

The reason it is so important to know the difference between shape and 切 is that it is easy to think you’ve heard what she loves in diamond shape and 切 when you have not.

Your fiance may not realize that there is a special name to the shape and 切 she loves.

公主方形切割钻石

我的客户内特在互联网上找到我。首先,他在网上购买了“square” diamond for his fiance. He chose a princess 切 diamond. “It’s 广场 right babe?” Weeeellllllll….. she actually didn’t like the hard angularness of the princess 切 diamond.

她什么’d真正想要的是枕形切割钻石,但她’d称为正方形。他打电话给我帮助控制损失。我遇到了他和他的未婚夫。我遍历了所有的不同选择“square”形钻石。琪琪让我知道她真正想的是“that one.”

Loose Cushion 切 diamond

垫形切割形状柔和柔美,柔美方形

And she pointed to a cushion 切 diamond.

内特说“well it’s not exactly 广场!”

我让他知道它适合“square”选择钻石时的光谱。

Long story short Kiki is now wearing a ring I designed with a cushion 切 diamond on her hand and she does look better with the softer outline of a cushion 切 diamond.

The moral of the story is that it is especially critical when your fiancé is interested in a “square diamond” to get a bit more specific on which 切 she likes.

公主切vs垫切,那里’s a Big Difference!

钻石切割的细节

她想要一个 princess 切 棱角分明的尖角?请参阅文章顶部的图片。

她想要一个 cushion 切 which is like a princess 切, but with rounded corners and rounded edges for a more feminine look?

Both the princess 切 and cushion 切 have around 58 facets for lots of brilliance in look. But they differ in shape slightly. That difference between hard angles and softer curves is subtle, but very important.

祖母绿切割钻石vs光芒四射的钻石

她想要一个 广场 emerald 切 diamond? Its faceting pattern shows the beauty and depth of the diamond. The emerald 切 is not as sparkly a 切 style as the princess 切 or cushion 切.

辐射状切工钻石具有缺角的角外观,使其轮廓与祖母绿切工钻石的形状相似。但是,辐射状的切割使用了不同且更具光泽的刻面图案。辐射钻石比祖母绿切割钻石更现代。 (请参见上面的几张图片。)

如果她喜欢像她这样的缺口角落’s seen on emerald 切 diamonds you’我想知道她是否想要更多的光彩或更优雅的微妙之处。另请参阅下面的Asscher钻石。

The emerald 切 uses a step 切 facet pattern which is especially good for pairing with a vintage style ring design or a simple and classic style.

上丁方形钻石

Asscher 切 loose diamond

复古风格的Asscher Diamond刚好华丽,看起来很棒。

她想要一个n Asscher 切 for a more classic vintage look? The Asscher is a bit more out of the ordinary. If your fiance is looking for the 广场 shape, but seeks a more seldom trod path then the Asscher is a wonderful choice.

It is 切 more deeply than an emerald 切 pattern and sparkles more. The Asscher uses a step 切 style for a more old school vintage look. Its 切 combines sparkle and a mirrors of infinity look, when you gaze down deeply into it.

只是一点点细节。 Asscher钻石的切割比祖母绿切割的切割更深。这意味着更多的钻石重量被捕获在钻石的下面。因此,您需要获得一颗与祖母绿切割相同尺寸外观的重量更大的阿舍尔钻石。这使Asscher钻石更加昂贵。

现在您正式知道自己的形状与方形钻石的切割

“什么?!?她只是改变了主意变成椭圆形?好家伙’是另一篇博客文章的主题。”

愿您的钻石选择带给您终生幸福。

马蹄莲 this 文章 on 广场 切 type diamonds should be used to inform the next generation of jewelers! I especially liked Nate and Kiki’s “square diamond”故事。您的这篇文章促进了良好的沟通。我赞同。非常翔实!

你知道普通的老1/8″宽环带可以重新加工成“football”形状?是否可以将具有相同形状的CZ以看起来像微光的新风格安装在中央?我认为它需要添加一个包/链。这枚戒指的大小约为7或8。您对克拉的大小有什么建议吗?
