Heart Shape Diamond

A heart shaped engagement ring is a rare and unique choice. Dating back to the 16th century, the shape symbolizes shared love and lifelong connection. The most popular ring settings for heart shaped engagement rings are solitaire and three-stone designs. Most importantly, choose a ring where the heart shape diamond stands out.

A simple ring setting for a heart shaped diamond goes a long way. You can select yellow gold, white gold, rose gold or platinum for your ring.

Because the heart shape diamond offers a distinct look, pay particular attention to Cut quality. Heart shape diamonds vary greatly in length and width—impacting the stone’s beauty. In general, we recommend a length to width ratio of 1.00, meaning the heart is as long as it is wide. Symmetry is also important to ensure the diamond appears even and whole.
Because a large part of the rough stone is used in cutting a heart shape diamond, they’re typically less expensive per carat than other shapes. For more tips on selecting a heart shape engagement ring, read our full guide here.
