Diamond shapes


Diamond shapes for different designs

It might seem excessive but rough diamonds are actually classified into over 12,000 different categories based on shape, colour, clarity, and carat. It takes a discerning eye to see the difference but it doesn’t mean one shape is better than the other. Embrace life’s little imperfections.

Here is just a selection of a few commonly occurring diamond crystal structures. From left to right: octahedron, dodecahedron, tetrahedron, hexoctahedron with curved faces, a macle and two interpenetrate cubes.
