Diamond art: round or square?

What is diamond art?

Before deciding between round or square diamonds, which is just the shape of the rhinestones used on your canvas, you must know that there is no definitive or better answer. Like much in life, this is a subjective point of view! Your goal should be to choose one that you like the most.

Round diamonds are easier

Round diamonds are usually more suitable for beginners as it would be easier to pick them up and apply them to the canvas. This will make transitions between tasks and overall progress much faster. Also, the round diamonds would shimmer more, especially on larger paintings.

Square ones are better for larger paintings

We know we just told you that round diamonds are good for larger paintings, but if you want details to be clear, square ones are for you. The simple reason for this is that square tessellations align much better and create a more "complete" look for your tessellation. They match very well and there are no air gaps between the diamonds. Additionally, as they near completion, the square diamonds give a pretty satisfying feeling that many people love. Finally, square diamonds would be great in the hands of more advanced diamond art makers. A statistical study of people's preferences shows that most people actually prefer square to round, 383 to 87.
