The ever powerful shield cut diamond
Those on the hunt for a unique diamond cut are often drawn to the shield cut diamond, which makes complete sense, as you’ll find it difficult to compete with its symbolic meaning. The shield symbolizes both literal protection during combat, and later on a way to express one’s lineage as a coat of arms. Expanding this powerful symbol in jewelry makes complete sense, especially when considering its aesthetic appeal.
What makes the Shield Cut Diamond Unique
While resembling other triangular shaped diamond cuts, the shield takes things further with the crucial 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
While simple in theory, finding a shield cut diamond that genuinely resembles a shield requires the expertise of experienced cutters that know their symmetry. Additional things to consider is 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.
