Most popular diamond shapes for engagement rings

What is the shape of the gem in your dream engagement ring?

It is necessary to think not only about the color of the gem, but also consider its shape – cause it makes a huge the difference.

We prepared a list of the most popular – and iconic – diamond cuts for engagement rings. Check it out and find your perfect diamond cut:

Round brilliant

Some say that it’s dull, others – that it is a classic! This cut just emphasizes the beauty of a diamond and works well in single-stone rings as well as in two- and three-stone pieces. And it’s also perfect for a more retro look.

Princess cut

This widely popular engagement ring cut creates a more modern and geometrical look while still radiating a ton of brilliance.

Cushion cut

The cushion-cut diamond became extremely popular in the 19th century. These cuts are still in, even though they give off totally old-world vibes.

Emerald cut

This shape is appreciated for its Art Deco aesthetics. It also makes your fingers look longer and more slender (great advantage, right?). However, it has a more subtle sparkle due to its cut.

Marquise cut

Oh, this cut is all about royal vibes. Its narrow shape not only creates an illusion of a bigger size but also elongates the finger when set vertically. It’s perfect, but it requires particularly careful work on the cut in order to preserve the gem and reveal its beauty.
