Your Perfect Diamond
Updated: Jan 28
Are you getting engaged soon!? Do you have a preference on which shape diamond you want or are you leaving that up to your significant other? I'm sharing my three favorite shapes that make for beautiful diamond engagement rings!
I of course love this one because my engagement ring is a marquise! The shape maximizes carat weight, giving you a larger looking diamond. It also makes your finger appear longer and more slender. You can even consider turning the stone and having it set as an 'east-west' diamond like I did. I get SO many compliments on my ring, it's so unique!
This shape can be either a square or rectangular one with trimmed corners, making it a popular choice for all jewelry. A radiant cut looks equally beautiful as a solitary stone or with baguette diamonds on either side. I see where it gets it's name :) Don't confuse this cut with the Emerald or Asscher, as those are cut with rectangular facets that give a unique optical appearance. How gorgeous is this stone? And I love the unique gold band paired with it in this photo.
This shape has been popular for more than a century. Also called 'pillow cut', this stone has rounded corners and larger facets to increase brilliance. It's available in both a square and rectangular shape. It looks stunning by itself or with a pave halo around it like the picture below!
All gorgeous options for engagement rings, and there are so many other choices out there! I'll share more at a later date...until then, have a great week ya'll!! xo
