Round: You're Classic And Loyal

Undeniably, a round diamond is the most popular engagement ring design. Many brides who choose a round-cut diamond are classic, sweet, and loyal! They have a smile that lights up the room and warmth that surrounds them.

While the round-cut diamond is the go-to for many brides, it's far from boring. The 58 facets of a round diamond cut have been designed to maximize sparkle and add a touch of glamor.

Oval: You're Creative And Elegant

Oval diamonds look similar to round diamonds and have the same traditional appeal, but they have an advantage: the oval shape makes them appear larger than their actual size. This is because they have a larger surface area.

Brides who choose an oval-cut are trendsetters who don't mind a little sparkle. They're creative, effortless, and elegant—balancing both sophistication and fun! The oval shape is a masterpiece and shines brilliantly.

Princess: You're Bold And Stylish

Princess-cut diamonds are just as brilliant and bright as round-cuts but feel more modern. The shape is bold, stylish, and strong! Brides who choose this shape are independent and unafraid to shine in public. They inspire others with their confidence.

The geometric shape is very appealing, and modern princess cuts also have this symmetrically pleasing X in their center reflections.

Cushion: You're Romantic And Timeless

The cushion shape is often associated with vintage or antique jewelry. Also known as a "pillow-cut," it's a mix of an "old mine" and "modern oval" shape. The modern cushion-cut sparkles beautifully and looks great in any setting.

Brides who choose this antique cut are romantic, timeless, and nostalgic! This shape has existed for centuries; the shape transcends generations and is the epitome of romance.

Pear: You're Unique And Adventurous 

Pear-cut diamonds are far from traditional and unusual but in the best way. The shape is unique, confident, and adventurous! The brides who choose this chape for their custom engagement ring are bound to the life of the party. They aren't afraid to stand out in a crowd.

It's important to note that this shape isn't the easiest to cut. In addition, it can be difficult to create perfect symmetry, so keep this in mind.

Emerald: You're Polished And Glamorous 

Emerald shaped diamonds don't sparkle as much as other cuts. However, it still stands out and looks beautiful in its own right. The shape has multiple flat, long planes that allow you to clearly see the bold angles of the cut. In addition, the way that this is cut creates glass-like mirrors and long lines.
