Another thing to keep in mind when deciding which cut is best for you is what type of jewelry the stone will be set in and who will be wearing it.

Heart shapes and pear shapes look exceptional in pendant necklaces or matching stud earrings, while other cuts may look their best in a solitaire ring setting.
