For hundreds of years, men and women have used heart-shaped rings to confess their undying love for one another. Every year, around seventy percent of the total sales of heart-shaped diamonds happen around the first two weeks of February. Heart-shaped jewelry is a timeless symbol of love and commitment, and is the closest a person generally gets to pledging their heart to a special someone.
Needless to say, cutting a diamond into a heart takes a high amount of skill and effort. The symmetry needs to be perfect, and every finished piece has around 60 facets that need to be carefully sculpted without a single mistake.
First and foremost, the symmetry of both the stone and the arches of the ring must be carefully looked at, and the tip of the ring must be defined to a good extent. There are other things to consider, such as the ratio between the diamond’s length and width. While an ideal-cut heart has a ratio difference of about ten percent, a deeper cut might have a ratio difference as high as 32%.
Due to the skill required, heart-shaped diamonds must be bought from reputable sources that provide 100% authentic and natural diamonds. Not only are diamonds a considerable investment, there is always the risk of buying fake or impure stones.
Our handmade heart-shaped diamond Bezel set ring comes with detailed appraisal reports from our in-house certified gemologists, and all our diamonds are checked with D-secure machines, which assures 100% natural stones..
In our humble opinion, a good diamond ring strikes a perfect balance between sparkle and warmth, and has a stone which stands out without being too bulky.
Yes, they sure do! The individual facets of heart-shaped diamonds are inter-angled so that they reflect large amounts of light, which gives a distinctively fiery sparkle to the stone. Moreover, it is easier to spot internal flaws in heart-shaped diamonds, with clouds, carbon deposits and other imperfections often visible to the naked eye.
Further, the surprisingly high variety of metal and color options means that there is a perfect heart-shaped engagement ring for every couple, no matter if you prefer a ring that sparkles fiercely and stands out, or one which has a warmer tone which complements the stone.
Heart-shaped diamonds, commonly called heart diamonds, are cheaper than their similarly sized round-cut counterparts. This means that heart-shaped diamonds are perfectly suited to make your partner feel special, and are more affordable too.
If those reasons are not enough, our heart-shaped bezel set ring comes with a rose gold metal option, which has a warm tone that perfectly complements the glittering stone in the center. Further, the amount of craftsmanship and the symbolism attached to the cut makes it quite the perfect gift, for your partner.
While there isn’t a wrong way to wear a heart-shaped ring, most people prefer to wear it with the bottom point towards them, if only so that they can see the heart with the right side up. Further, while bulkier diamond rings are somewhat unsuitable for everyday office wear, well-crafted rings with more portable diamonds are durable and strong, and can be worn by people living active lifestyles. Regardless, heart-shaped rings tend to stand out, and their beauty can be accentuated by wearing complementary colors.
Heart-shaped diamond rings are timeless symbols of love, and have been spotted on mainstream celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, and more recently on Gwen Stefani and Katie Price. In conclusion, while finding the perfect ring might prove to be a humongous task indeed, you can never go wrong, when you go with a heart-shaped engagement ring.
