Fancy Cut Diamonds - Variety is the SPICE of Life!



Are you in the the mood for something Fancy?


A lot of people do not know that diamonds can come in a variety of shapes, not just round. This means there may just be a unique shape out there waiting for you to discover, that perfectly complements your style and personality.

The definition of a fancy cut diamond is any diamond shape other than a round brilliant. The most popular fancy cut diamonds sold today are Asscher cut, Cushion cut, Emerald cut, Heart shaped, Marquise shaped, Oval shaped, Pear shaped, Princess cut, and Radiant cut, but there are many, many more!



Fancy cut diamonds provide a way for people to express their individuality and we believe individuality should be celebrated. From the graceful, feminine curve of the Pear shape to the clean crisp lines of an Emerald cut, fancy shapes provide a diverse departure from the traditional Round Brilliant. They particularly appeal to individuals who desire to be different from their peers, want something unique, customised and one of a kind.


At Kimjoux we offer ALL the fancy cut shapes (even the more obscure and hard to find!) and we actively encourage our clients to take their time to discover each one so their jewellery piece perfectly reflects their distinctive aesthetic style and taste.



Perhaps another reason for purchasing a fancy cut diamond is they tend to be more affordable than round diamonds and who doesn’t like a good deal! There are a couple of reasons for this, but it is mainly because less of the diamond rough is likely to be wasted if it is cut into a fancy shape, allowing for a larger carat weight in the finished stone. Sounds pretty good to us!
