What is a Heart Shaped Diamond?
Heart-shaped diamonds signify eternal love and have remained popular since the 1500s. The cut is fiery with brilliance, girlish in its charm, uniquely spectacular...and extraordinary. These fancy cut diamonds were often exchanged between royal families as “a sign of amity and goodwill.”
Today the heart-shape is a popular choice for celebrity engagement rings and is often seen as a status symbol of glamour and luxe. Lady Gaga said ‘yes!’ (then, no!) to Taylor Kinney on Valentine’s Day and slipped on a large heart-shaped diamond engagement ring. Meek Mill proposed to Nicki Minaj with a 15-carat yellow heart-shaped diamond surrounded by a halo of white diamonds. And, of course, the infamous (and fictitious) “Coeur de la Mer” in the movie “Titanic” featured a stunning aqua-blue heart-shaped diamond pendant.
