With so many engagement rings out there, it is hard for any bride to decide which cut to choose to stay on trend, be unique, suit their hand or whatever vision they have in mind for their ring. Take a look at the different cuts that will make you say, "I do."
Typically the most popular choice by brides-to-be, the round brilliant is both classic and timeless making it a safer pick for those who intend to be wed, 'until death do us part'. For those with larger hands, the round cut is a perfect option - don't be afraid to get creative with the setting too!
For a blushing bride with shorter fingers looking for a more flattering look, rounder cuts like the pear help the finger appear longer. Although previously, the pear cut stone was considered to be somewhat 'old-fashioned', this shape is back on trend for those looking for a ring with a vintage yet modern feel.
If you're looking for a cut that is in style right now, then the emerald cut is for you. Whether it stands alone or added stones surround it, the emerald cut is sure to turn heads in any room. Stay ahead of the fashion trend by teaming it up with a rose gold band for extra style points.
For long fingers, the most popular fancy cut is the princess or cushion cut stone, especially for engagement rings. Like round cut diamonds, princess cut diamonds are a great choice for their flexibility in working in almost any style of ring.
The cushion cut is the most universally flattering. Cushion cuts can be different shapes — more square, round, elongated, so you are bound to find a stone that works well with your hand!
The oval is an ideal choice for a customer who likes the look of a round diamond, but wants something more unique. Oval diamonds have the added advantage of an elongated shape, which can create the illusion of greater size. The slender shape can also make the finger of the wearer appear longer and slimmer. The oval cut is also perfect for any bride looking for a fancy color stone like yellow or blue.
