Diamonds come in many shapes with the round brilliant cut being the most common. All the others are called fancy shapes: Oval, Princes, Radiant, Emerald, Pear, Marquise, Kite, Trillion, Baguette, Asscher, Cushion, Half Moon, Trapezoids. Deciding on the shape is the first step in the selection process and if you have some input from that special someone receiving the gift this could be very helpful. If not, maybe get some information from her friends.
