Diamond painting: How to choose between round and square diamonds?
Square and round diamond shape, what is the difference?
When choosing between a square or round diamond shape, it is important to know that there are no right answers. As with so many things in life, it is more or less a subjective preference! Your goal should be to choose the shape that you personally find most beautiful for you.
In diamond painting, a "diamond" simply refers to the shape of each diamond you will apply to your canvas.

Round diamonds are generally preferred by beginners because they are easier to pick up and place on the canvas with the stylus. This makes the transition smoother and the work faster. In addition, round diamonds are known to be more sparkly, especially on larger paintings.
