What is the most affordable diamond shape?

The prices show that the emerald cuts are the least expensive quality for quality. However, the emerald cut is usually sought after in higher quality grades because of its window-like appearance. The emerald, oval, Asscher, princess and cushion cut diamonds will be less expensive because of the weight retention in cutting these shapes, but the loss of sparkle in comparison to the round diamond creates less demand for them.
