A heart shaped diamond is just that: heart shaped! More specifically, a heart shaped diamond is essentially a pear diamond with a rounded cleft at the top, creating two “lobes.” In terms of diamond shape, heart diamonds are often considered the most romantic option (for obvious reasons). Heart diamonds are also thought of as being more feminine than some of the other shapes.


Interestingly enough, heart diamonds are also much less common than most other diamond shapes, so if you want something capable of standing out in a crowd, then the heart shape may be right for you.
