EMERALD CUT TANZANITE
The Emerald cut tanzanite has step-like facets, a rectangular shape and trimmed corners. Although it tends to be less fiery than other brilliant cut tanzanites as a result of its long lines, it displays broader, more dramatic flashes of light.

Octagonal shape tanzanites have eight sides and are similar in shape to an Emerald cut tanzanite.
OVAL CUT TANZANITE
An oval tanzanite is an elongated version of the round brilliant. The Oval shape has a larger surface area, than a round brilliant of the same carat weight, and is an excellent choice for those more concerned with size.
PEAR SHAPE TANZANITE
The pear cut tanzanite is shaped like a tear drop and is a combination of the marquise and round brilliant cut. Well proportioned, it gives a depth of scintillation to the point of the tanzanite.
TRILLIANT CUT TANZANITE

MARQUISE SHAPE TANZANITE
The Marquise tanzanite has two sharp points on either end. Its elongated shape has an elegant air to it, and is well suited to jewellery designs with accompanying side set stones.
HEART SHAPE TANZANITE
As the name aptly implies, the heart shaped tanzanite is cut in the form of the ultimate symbol of love. This modified brilliant cut takes skill and expertise to achieve the perfect balance.
