There are a surprising amount of different shaped diamonds to choose from when it comes to selecting your engagement ring. The type of diamond cut you choose and the angles of the facets will determine the impression you make and the sparkle that radiates from the piece.
BRILLIANT CUT DIAMOND ENGAGEMENT RING:
The brilliant cut diamond setting is one of our most popular choices for the more traditional bride thanks to its exquisite brilliance that emanates from the 58 facets. The stone itself resembles the shape of a cone which allows the maximum amount of light to travel through the top to create the most impressive sparkle.
PRINCESS CUT DIAMOND ENGAGEMENT RING:
A princess cut engagement ring would be perfect for well... a princess. With approximately 76 facets which add a brilliance and fire that cannot be matched, the princess cut diamond is the second most popular shape after brilliant cut. The princess cut diamond is generally shaped in a square or rectangle while a side glance of the stone gives the impression of a magically inverted pyramid.
EMERALD CUT ENGAGEMENT RING:
One of the more rare diamond cuts available, emerald diamond engagement rings give a more understated sparkle when compared to brilliant cut or princess cut options, but the long rectangular shape of the stone makes it appear longer and the broad flat plane accentuates the crisp clarity.
PAVE SETTING ENGAGEMENT RING:
For those looking for a subtle sparkle, a pave set diamond engagement ring is designed to include small diamonds set close together so you get the effect of one continuous and simple sparkle. These engagement rings are perfect for those looking for something understated but still unbelievably elegant.
