The bullet cut is slightly similar in shape to the kite shape, although it is slimmer, with a sharp point at its tip and a flat top. This provides it a bullet like shape, allowing it to easily serve as a side piece much like a baguette.

The bullet cut can have slanted sides, similar to a shield cut, or it can have straight sides, giving more of the appearance of a baguette cut with a point at the end.

Bullet cuts are most frequently used as accent stones, but due to their length, they can easily take center stage for a sharp, bold look.
