Heart Shaped Brilliant

The Heart Shaped Brilliant bears some similarity to the Pear Shape, except that there is a cleft at the top. In fact, often the reason cutters may choose a Heart shape over a Pear may be that the Rough Diamond contained an inclusion located in the cleft. The skill of the cutter can make a great difference in the beauty of this cut. The "Shape Appeal" is especially important with Hearts.

What to watch out for:
Shape appeal. Make sure the overall girdle outline is attractive. The lobes should be even and well defined. The cleft should be polished to ensure maximum brilliance. The Heart also has the bow-tie effect.
