The Trilliant diamond shape is cut with equal sides in a triangular shape. It usually contains 50 facets and is mostly cut from a rough diamond already in a triangular shape, so waste is kept to a minimal when cutting and shaping the diamond. This kind of rough diamond is also known as a “macle”.

The equal sides are sometimes rounded to give the diamond a more soft look. A Trilliant cut diamond is mostly used as a side diamond on a ring or necklace, however it can also be used as a central diamond to really catch the attention of others.
