Loose Heart Diamonds

It is said that the beauty of the diamond depends immensely on the skill of its cutter. This may be bluntly true for almost all diamond shapes except one. The beauty of a heart shaped diamond also depends on the emotion with which it is being presented to a woman and the adornment with which she wears it. This shape in diamonds is particularly popular for wedding jewelry such as engagement rings. Many patrons also buy loose heart diamonds to be set in earrings, necklaces, pendants and bracelets. The heart shape diamonds may be the most romantic shape in diamonds, and thus ideal in any jewelry setting as a gift for someone you love.

The heart shaped diamond is basically a pear shaped diamond that has a cleft at the rounded end. When out shopping for this particular shape, there are a few things you may want to pay special attention to. The first and most important aspect that affects the beauty of the heart shape is its symmetry. It is most vital that you make sure that if you draw an imaginary line through the start of the cleft at the pointed end of the diamond, the two sides that are formed are perfectly symmetrical. Asymmetrical heart shapes can end up looking unattractive and take away from the natural beauty of the stone. You should also make certain that the shape definition and outline of the diamond is superior and beautiful. This aspect plays an eminent role in the beauty factor of the stone once it is set in a jewelry piece.

Another consideration that should be made is about the roundness of the lobes. This aspect of the stone may be subjective, as some prefer more rounded lobes while other like a slender look of the stone. Lastly, you need to watch out for the bow tie formation when it comes to heart shaped diamonds. Also, this shape is best mounted in special settings with five prongs. Two prongs at the lobes of the heart, two on the sides and a V shape prong to protect the point of the heart.

A good way of avoiding this is to stay away from direct online purchases. While you may feel that finding a diamond is quicker online, such a purchase is best made when you have actually seen the stone you buy. There are many diamond traders available online that have their prominence on the Internet, but also offer one-on-one guidance and first hand look at the diamonds they have in store. Plus, many wholesale loose heart diamonds traders offer the diamonds at much better prices than you can ever get at any retail jewelry stores, not to mention they have a bigger selection for you to choose from.
