The powerful presence of the long shield cut diamond
During ones search for an unconventional diamond cut, you will often find yourself drawn to the long shield cut diamond. After all, It’s an incredibly innovative shape that is rarely outmatched both in its historical and symbolic meaning, and its visual appeal. The shield is both an instrument of protection during times of combat, as well as a way to express one’s heritage as a coat of arms. Expanding this powerful symbol in jewelry makes complete sense, especially when considering its sheer beauty.
What makes the Long Shield Cut Diamond Appealing
While resembling other triangular type cuts, the long shield takes a unique approach with the addition of a bowed top, tapering all the way to the top. Different variations exist which include a more straight and narrow approach to its finalized shape, or a rounded one. The main use of the shield cut diamonds is as a unique side stone, mainly due to their unique ability to enhance center stones.
How to choose a Shield Cut Diamond
Finding a shield cut diamond that accurately represents a shield requires the genuine experience and expertise, and cutters that know, and can execute the highest degrees of symmetrical accuracy. Additional things to consider are that the shields have a wider center area which can bring certain flaws to light. Depending on the jewelry, planning ahead factors such as clarity may prove crucial.
