Styles of Engagement Rings Based on the Shape of the Diamond

Because of this, you have no idea which ring style to go with for your engagement ring. We've all been there at one point or another. There are so many styles to choose from when it comes to your engagement ring that it can be overwhelming. There are certain ring designs that bring out the best in your center stone's shape, no matter what it is.

Round Cut

Your center stone should be round brilliant if you want it to shine the brightest. The round's 360-degree symmetrical shape makes it optically brilliant. This endearing classic shape is the most versatile of the shapes because the setting you choose can't really go wrong with it. We recommend a solitaire design if you want to achieve a sleek, traditional look.

Pear Cut

There are many different types of pears, but the most common is known as the "teardrop" shape. Your fingers will appear more slender if your pear shape is longer. Between 1.45:1 and 1.75:1 are the most common length-to-width ratios for this shape. For the best results, we suggest using either the standard or the obscured halo option!

Cushion Cut

There are rounded corners on both sides of the cushion. Shapes with 58 brilliant facets, the most popular is a 1:1 ratio. From the "old mine cut" of the turn of the century, a cushion-shaped diamond was developed. As a result, this form is ideal for retro outfits.

Marquise Cut

An elongated shape with tapering ends, the marquise is known. Between 1.75:1 and 2.25:1 are the most common length-to-width ratios for marquise diamonds. Your fingers will appear longer thanks to the extended shape of this shape. This graceful form goes well with both a vintage and a modern aesthetic.

Emerald Cut

The rectangular shape of the emerald is one of the most common diamond shapes. When cutting an emerald, length-to-width ratios are typically cut so that the stone's length is approximately 1.5 times its width. For the best emerald cut, stick with what's tried and true: this method. We prefer solitaire and three-stone designs.

Radiant Cut

The blocked corners of the radiant shape make it easy to identify, and it can be either square or rectangle in shape. Emerald cut and round brilliant or princess cut faceting combine to make a radiant cut, which is stunning. We recommend three-stone and east-to-west styles for this shape.

Oval Cut

A brilliant-cut shape makes this ring extra sparkly and helps elongate your fingers. The oval shape, like the round, is extremely versatile. To get you started, take a look at our selection of hidden halos, solitaires, and engagement rings with diamond accents. Clara and Amira, two of our favorite styles, are enhanced by the oval shape.

Asscher Cut

Rather than being round like the traditional emerald shape, asscher gemstones are square with distinct cut corners instead. Uniqueness of this shape is defined by the diamond's pavilion. An Asscher's culet is cut at a 45-degree angle from the rest of the stone (flat face on the bottom of a gemstone). Asscher-shaped three-stone engagement rings are stunning.

Princess Cut

The princess combines the emerald cut with the brilliant-triangular cut's facets and can be identified by its sharp right-angle corners. It's best to go with the princess if your body type is square but you still want the round's radiance and brilliance. When adorned with diamonds or set as a solitaire, the princess cut is a stunning choice.

Trillion Cut

It is possible to have the sides of a trillion be straight or curved, thanks to the invention of the trillion cut in the 1970s. However, trillion-shaped stones can also be quite eye-catching in modern solitaire designs. We recommend one of our many contemporary settings for the trillion. It's possible that the Accented Two Stone is the right design for you.
