Trend Alert: Fancy Shaped Stones

While the classic round brilliant cut continues to reign supreme as the most popular shape for diamonds and gemstones, today's trendsetters are embracing a diverse array of fancy shapes to express individuality and style. Fancy stones are appearing in everything from necklaces and bracelets to earrings and engagement rings. Let's embark on a journey through the shimmering world of unique diamond and gemstone shapes, each possessing its own allure. 

Enchanting Emerald Cut

The elegant emerald cut is characterized by its rectangular shape and step-cut faceting, which creates a hall-of-mirrors effect within the stone. This shape emphasizes clarity and showcases the diamond's pristine interior, making it an excellent choice for those who appreciate understated elegance and timeless beauty. The elongated silhouette of the emerald cut also creates the illusion of longer, more slender fingers when worn as a ring.

This Noam Carver engagement ring features a gorgeous emerald cut diamond set in 14k yellow gold for a sophisticated look.

Perfect Pear 

With a distinctive teardrop silhouette, the pear shape is renowned for its graceful appearance and unique versatility. Whether set as a solitaire pendant or as the centerpiece of an engagement ring, the pear shape exudes femininity and romance. Those drawn to the pear shape often seek a balance between tradition and individuality, appreciating its ability to stand out while maintaining a sense of timelessness.

This pendant necklace is an exquisite example, featuring both a pear-shaped emerald and a pear-shaped diamond. Wherever it appears, the pear shape lends an air of elegance. 

Outstanding Oval

For those seeking a modern twist on the classic round brilliant, the oval cut offers a compelling alternative. With its elongated shape and brilliant faceting, the oval cut delivers exceptional sparkle and fire, rivaling its round counterpart in brilliance while offering a more elongated silhouette. This shape is ideal for those who desire a larger-looking gemstone without sacrificing sparkle or clarity. 

These oval cut amethyst earrings, set in 14k yellow gold alongside round diamonds, present a vibrant and on-trend look. 

Alluring Asscher

Inspired by the Art Deco era, the asscher cut exudes vintage charm and geometric allure. The asscher cut features square proportions and a unique pavilion facet pattern that creates a mesmerizing play of light and shadow. This shape is ideal for those who appreciate architectural design and crave a distinctive, eye-catching diamond. The asscher cut's clean lines and geometric symmetry make it a perfect choice for sleek, modern settings or vintage-inspired designs.

Beautiful Baguette


Baguette-shaped gemstones are characterized by their long, slender rectangular or tapered silhouettes, reminiscent of the French breadstick from which they derive their name. These gems are often step-cut with parallel facets running along their length, resulting in a sleek and elegant appearance. Baguette-shaped gemstones are prized for their clean lines and understated sophistication, making them a popular choice for accent stones in jewelry designs. Whether adorning the shoulders of an engagement ring or lending sparkle to a necklace or bracelet, baguette-shaped gemstones add a touch of refined glamor to any piece of jewelry.

This signature Bremer Jewelry bracelet puts the baguette in the spotlight, with five baguette-shaped sapphires accented by round diamonds.
