When it comes to the selection of an engagement ring, there are so many things you need to consider. If you are planning to buy a diamond engagement ring, you will have to see the 4C’s of the diamond. The color, clarity, cut, and carat weight of the diamond is very important in understanding the true value of your diamond. Along with these, you must also know the diamond shape, ring size, budget, accent stones, detailing, etc.
However, it is the shape of the diamond that will largely determine the overall appeal of the stone. Every woman will have her favorite shape of a diamond, and it is better you know it before you go on your purchase of the diamond. On the other hand, if you do not know the shape that is the favorite of your beloved, you may consider the general interest that women have in diamonds.
Here are the details of diamond shapes in general terms, to help you in selecting the best diamond engagement ring for your loved one.
This is the most traditional of all diamond shapes. If your bride is wearing a classic or traditional dress, this engagement ring can be a great complement to her appearance. If you prefer to have a completely classic look, you may choose to buy a solitaire diamond with a band in yellow gold. If you want to have a little modern touch to the ring, you may consider having the diamond with white gold or platinum along with some pave stones adorning the band.
This is the second popular diamond shape after round brilliant shape. This can be a perfect choice if you think that your bride will love a balance of traditional and contemporary look. The cut is neither fully contemporary, nor is it fully traditional but a mixture of both.
Cushion cut engagement rings became very popular after many celebrities were found with this ring. It features a cushion-shaped diamond with round corners. They appear big and bold. If you like to have more aura to it, you may choose to buy cushion cut engagement rings with side baguettes.
This is another trending diamond shape of the time. They give an elongated appearance to the fingers. Those who love to have a soft but feminine style of ring may go for an oval diamond engagement ring. They are available as solitaire diamond rings and also in other settings.
