How shape affects the value of a diamond

The most well-known shape of a diamond is the classic round diamond.  If you are looking for something different there are plenty of other shapes from which to choose.  Each diamond has unique characteristics that impact their appearance.  For example, one of the more recent cuts that have lost popularity is the marquise diamond.  To many this diamond looks antique and old fashioned.   One thing that can be done to the marquise diamond to increase its demand is recut it.  Many times the marquise is recut into an oval or pear; both are in higher demand than the marquise.

Below is an example of two different cuts.  One is a princess cut and the other a cushion cut.  If all other factors were the same, the cushion would be valued at more based on its popularity.  Ten years ago, Princess cut diamonds were very popular, but as the trends have changed so have the tastes in diamond shapes.
