Half Moon Cut
The half moon diamonds are used mainly for side stones and have the profile of half a round or half an oval diamond. They look great with rectangular center stones such as princess, radiant or emerald because they have one straight side. Because of the rounded edge, half moon diamonds also work well with ovals shaped stones.
