Round or Square?

If you are new to diamond painting, the question you will ask at least one time is: Round bead or square bead is better? 

Very simple. If you want a quick and extra sparkle, go “round”. If you want complete coverage and more detail, go “square”! 

Many people prefer using round beads because they do not require much precision and skill, it takes you less time to finish the project. Also, the result will be much more sparkle than any other beads due to 26 facet cutting.


Besides, working with square diamonds is actually a technical challenge because you need to place the square beads perfectly in straight lines without leaving any room for mistakes. But the result will just amaze you by the details! 


However, each type of bead has a unique beauty, you’d better give both of them a try!
