 Select a Diamond/Gemstone Cut/Shape:
Round
This classic diamond shape consists of 57 facets and is much more brilliant than most cuts, due to its better light dispersion. A round cut diamond mounted would look good on most fingers.  The first well-known cut was developed in the late 17th century and was named the "Old Miner Cut" and has similar facets to that of the current round brilliant. However, because it seemed more like a cushion shape, this particular cut evolved in the "Old European Cut" which is believed to be a direct ancestor of the present round brilliant cut.
Round
Princess
Invented in 1963 by Basil Watermeyer from Johannesburg, the princess diamond is square in shape. Inspired by its forerunner, the Barion cut, the princess works best with deep stones, allowing maximum weight retention.  

It is second in popularity after the round and also comes in a rectangular fashion. The princess cut has naturally higher light dispersion than ordinary square diamonds and any inclusions are less visible, making it more attractive than other shapes.
Princess
Asscher
A diamond cut named for its inventor, Joseph Asscher, who in 1902 developed a square cut diamond with 72 facets.  This cut’s wide step facets and deep clipped corners make the gemstone resemble an octagon.  The Asscher cut produces more fire than is usually visible in a typical step cut or emerald cut diamond.

Emerald
This rectangular shape has "steps" on the sides and corners.  It offers a sleek sophisticated look with fewer facets. More often than not, the gemstone emerald is cut in a rectangular or square shape with its facets polished diagonally across the corner. Generally, an emerald shaped diamond has 57 facets with 25 facets on the crown, 8 facets on the girdle and 24 facets on the pavilion. 
Unlike most fancy shaped diamonds, the emerald's pavilion exhibits a unique brilliance. 
This is the only shape that emphasizes the clarity of the diamond with its rectangular facets. The typical length-to-width ratio of an emerald shaped diamond is between 1.30 and 1.40.
Emerald
Radiant
Originally, the radiant cut diamond combined the classic elegance of the traditional emerald cut shape with the sparkle of the "brilliant" cut. 
Today a typical radiant cut appears like a princess, emerald and round combined. It contains a total of 70 facets, with 25 facets on the crown, 8 facets on the girdle and 37 facets on the pavilion.  
The corners of a radiant are slightly cut, forming an octagonal shape.
Radiant
Cushion
An antique style of cut that was one of the most popular cuts a century ago.  Cushion cut diamonds (also known as pillow cut diamonds) have a rectangular to square shape with rounded corners and larger facets to increase their brilliance under candlelight.
Cushion
Oval
The oval is an elongated relative of the round brilliant. With a total of 55 facets, 33 on the crown and 22 on the pavilion, the advantage of this shape is that it looks larger than it is.  Based on the traditional round brilliant diamond developed by Lazare Kaplan in the early 1960s, the advisable length-to-width ratio would be around 1.5:1 to create a pleasing effect when mounted.
Oval
Pear
With a total of 56 facets, a pear shaped diamond is rounded on one end and pointed on the other, resembling a teardrop. Choose one where the girdle at the point isn’t too thin, otherwise the diamond will be unstable. An ideal cut for a pear shaped diamond must have good depth and nicely polished angles. Like most fancy shapes, this sparkler will look good on most hands.
Pear
Marquise
A typical marquise is an oblong-shaped diamond with pointed ends, containing 55 facets, with 33 on the crown and 22 on the pavilion. It was named after the 17th century Marquis of Pompadour, a very influential patronage of literature and arts. 
The legend goes that the Sun King was engrossed by the Marquise's fetching smile and wanted a diamond to match it.
Marquise
Heart
This shape characteristically appears like the heart icon and has a nearly round pavilion. If a heart shaped diamond is well cut, it provides a beautiful brilliance back out of the diamond. The suggested length to width ratio is 0.9-1.2:1
Heart
Trillion
A trillion cut is a triangular cut based upon a brilliant style cut, without a stepped facet.  The corners of the triangle are truncated (cut short) and there are a variety of facets, giving this cut a sparkling brilliance.
Trillion
Flanders
This cut was created in 1983 in Antwerp - the northern federal region of Belgium.  The Flanders cut has a complex symmetry with 61 precisely positioned facets.
Flanders
Old Mine
This diamond cut is square, but with gently rounded corners and brilliant style facets.  The crown is typically high, the table is small and the cutlet is large enough to be visible through the top of the stone.
