Heart-shaped diamonds are essentially pear-shaped diamonds with a cleft at the top that creates that iconic shape we all know so well. If your significant other is a true romantic with a feminine style, then the heart-shaped diamond is the perfect choice for her. Due to their unmistakable shape and meaning, heart diamonds are one of the most ideal choices of romantic diamonds.

Heart-Shaped Diamonds - The 4 C’s
Cut — The shape of a diamond refers to its physical appearance, while the cut refers to how well the diamond’s features interact with light. Because heart-shaped diamonds are a “fancy” cut, they have no official grade.
Clarity — Clarity, which refers to the number of inclusions and blemishes in a stone, is very important when it comes to heart diamonds. Each diamond will have a different amount of these flaws, ranging from SI2 (having the largest amount) to VVS1 (having the least). Because of the shape and cut of heart diamonds, flaws will be obvious—but if a diamond you like seems flawless to you, she probably won’t be able to spot any blemishes either.
Color — In a diamond, color refers to the absence of color. Clean Origin only offers diamonds from J to D, though there are diamonds with color from Z (containing the most color) to D (containing the least color). Heart diamonds do retain their color, so if you prefer a diamond to look white, choose a color close to D. If your significant other won’t mind a warmer stone, a diamond on the other end of the spectrum will work well.
Carat — One of the most important factors when it comes to heart diamonds is their carat size. They must be large enough for their distinctive shapes to be obvious; too small and they will appear round. Often, halos can distract from the heart instead of making it look larger. However, by purchasing a lab-grown diamond, you can save 20-30% on the price—enabling you to increase carat size enough for the romantic shape to appear obvious.
Buyers Tips for Heart-Shaped Diamonds
Shape can be a conundrum when it comes to heart-shaped diamonds because there is a lot of room for different appearances. The traditional heart-shaped diamond has a length-to-width ratio of 1, though anything from 1.05 (narrow) to .95 (squatter) is popular. When deciding whether your loved one might prefer a more elongated or squat heart, look through her clothes and jewelry, finding any items featuring hearts that might give you a clue as to which shape and length she might like.
Lab-Grown Heart-Shaped Diamonds
Because they have the same chemical construction and appearance as mined diamonds, both lab-grown and mined heart-shaped diamonds can be examined the same way. When comparing lab-grown and mined heart diamonds, you will look for the same qualities in clarity, color, and carat. You’ll also make the same choices when it comes to shape. However, because they rely on a shorter supply chain, lab-grown heart-shaped diamonds provide the same quality as mined diamonds at a 20-30% lower price. In other words, there’s no reason to worry about her heart diamond being too small for the shape to be clear; upgrading to a larger carat size will be well within your budget. At the end of the day, the lab-grown heart-shaped diamond ring is a passionate (and responsible) choice for anyone looking to buy an ethical, beautiful, and romantic diamond for their significant other.
