Carrying the legacy of unending love and passion, the range of natural heart cut diamonds are the ideal token of love that can bestowed to the lady in your life. Though a loose heart cut diamond is extremely beautiful diamond shape
to behold, but at the same time, it takes great efficiency and skill on the part of the diamond cutters to generate a perfectly symmetrical loose heart diamond. While selecting a genuine heart cut diamond, two characteristics must be taken into consideration. Firstly, the cleft of the heart diamond must be in the same symmetrical line with the pointed tail of the diamond producing two identical halves on both sides. Secondly, for a precise heart shape, the cleft cut between the two lobes must be carved in a very sharp and distinct manner whereas, the lobes are cut in a rounded manner thus creating the form of an adorable heart perfectly.
Smaller size of heart cut diamond is not very preferable due to the lack of fire that a larger carat diamond can display. So, pick out the heart shaped loose diamonds that are around 0.50 carat weight, or over it. Along with the variation in length to width ratio, the shape of the heart diamond varies from being fat to narrow. The length to width ratio of a classic heart shaped diamond is approximately 1.00. For diamond that are to be set in heart pendants
or other fine jewelry
, customers may opt for a slightly narrow cut with ratio range being 1.05-1.15, while for hearts set in a solitaire ring
, a slightly wide cut having ratio of 0.85-1, are most appealing.
