Kite diamond shapes are popular in the fine jewelry market. A kite cut loose diamond attracts customers with its edgy style, brilliance and rarity. It may have a stunning and sharp style but is not easy to find in the market. The diamond comes in an elongated variation or as a shorter, rather squat stone. It was a popular style in the Art Deco jewelry era and was not popular some years ago. However, it has got a revival in the high jewelry market. Now, more and more customers seek the unusual diamond cut.
More women request kite-shaped centerpieces for their engagement rings. The coronavirus pandemic has made many women much more willing to try experimental diamond ring designs. Earlier, they used to hesitate to look for anything other than round brilliant cut loose diamonds or oval-shaped diamonds, but that is no longer the case.
The shape can enhance the brilliance of a diamond and make it appear larger on the finger. It is an important shape for jewelers and customers alike. When a diamond is cut flat, it can appear wonderful as it will have an amazing table spread. For the uninitiated, the word table refers to the horizontal facet in the middle of a diamond.
Many jewelers work with specialist gemstone cutters for kite shapes for diamonds, tourmalines, rubellites, and morganites. It is challenging to cut a diamond or another gemstone into a kite-like shape, whether it is a raw stone or is being reshaped. Professionals should cut the tips of the stone, and those parts can break or be excessively pointy.
Still, gemstone cutters are willing to take on the task as they are usually hired to do conventional shapes, such as pear cuts. Gemstone cutters perform the same tasks again and again, but jewelers bring them exciting work such as cutting diamonds into kite shapes.
Many jewelers like to accent diamonds of the kite shape with triangular stones for punk-like appearances. The points, tips, angles and lines of the stone are not only edgy but also speak to the buyer.
There are jewelers that pair kite cuts with diamonds of other geometric shapes. An example is an engagement ring offsetting a kite diamond with trillion cut white diamonds and a trillion cut ruby stone. Together, the gemstones recall a comet. To dial up the romance quotient, customers propose marriage to their lovers with that engagement ring on a day with a comet in the night sky.
