Triangle Loose Diamonds

Loose Diamonds
Triangle cut loose diamonds are rarely used on large stones and is often used for side stones. However, the cut does make a loose diamond look larger than it really is, and could be a way of getting a lot of "oomph" on a small budget. It is also good for "everyday" jewelry that you'd rather keep simple, and subtle. Triangle cut loose diamonds or trillion loose diamonds need a special setting, with prongs molded into a V to hold the gem in place and protect the fragile corners.
