As its name suggests, this diamond is in the shape of a heart. Pretty and romantic it is the ultimate symbol of love and romance. Heart cut diamonds are a fancy cut and contains 59 facets that capture and reflect light, resulting in visible brilliance. It seems that Mary Queen of Scots sent England's Queen Elizabeth I a heart-shaped diamond ring. This gesture has gone down in history as one of the most ardent symbols of friendship and goodwill between royals ever recorded.
Unique and instantly recognisable, a well-cut heart shaped diamond can look fantastic in a ring, pendant or other piece of jewellery, all while offering better value for money than a similarly sized round diamond.
