Engagement Ring Cuts: How to Choose a Diamond
Getting ready to pop the question? Are you nervous about getting the perfect ring? When choosing which ring to present to that special someone, it’s important to consider the cut, style, and shape of the ring that will best suit them and cater to your loved one’s particular taste. Considering the variety of engagement ring cuts and styles will help you decide which one she will absolutely fall in love with.
Engagement rings are available with an array of diamond sizes to suit every budget. Many choose diamonds around one carat, yet a well-cut diamond will sparkle beautifully regardless of the size. Particular styles such as the halo setting allow the diamond to appear larger, while displaying a beautiful ring and also staying budget-friendly.
The cut of a diamond refers not only to the shape of diamond but also to the quality of the cut. For a round radiant diamond, the most important characteristic is the cut. The cut impacts the brilliance, luster, and excellence of the diamond. This is achieved by cutting the stone to mathematically-determined proportions to get as much light as possible reflected out the top of the diamond. Engagement ring cuts are especially essential because if the diamond’s cut is poor, the diamond will look lifeless and dull.
The most popular shape of engagement ring is round, while princess and cushion follow close behind. The round cut is a classic diamond shape that has the most sparkle, but if you’re looking for a more unique and divergent shape there are engagement rings that come in shapes such as radiant, pear, emerald, and heart. These shapes have been seen all around Hollywood and worn from several celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Amal Clooney, and Beyoncé.
