The Complete Guide to Hexagon Engagement Rings

wedding ring engagement ring diamond jewelry

For their engagement rings, more and more brides-to-be are opting for fashionable settings, unusual gemstones, and one-of-a-kind cuts. Why not consider a completely unusual shape if you're looking for a unique ring that reflects your personal style? Hexagon engagement rings are the epitome of contemporary design.

What Is the Meaning of a Hexagon Engagement Ring?

A hexagon engagement ring, as the name implies, is one in which the ring's stone is cut into the shape of a hexagon; however, other shapes—often round-cut gemstones—can be placed in a hexagon-shaped setting to appear more angular.

Due to the unusual shape of hexagon-cut diamond engagement rings, you may not be able to find one at the first jeweler you visit. However, if you dig a little deeper, you'll discover that there is some room for customization. The look is ideal for the bride-to-be who wants something truly unique and appreciates a vintage aesthetic with a modern twist.

The Benefits and Drawbacks of a Hexagon Engagement Ring

Because of the unconventional nature of the shape, hexagon engagement rings are becoming increasingly popular among brides. While this stone shape is more uncommon, there are still several options for the style. The hexagon cut complements a wide range of stones, particularly colored stones. This cut allows a lot of light into the center of the stone, but any stone can be cut hexagonally in the end. Furthermore, hexagon rings look great in a variety of settings, from solitaire to cluster, so you have options.

If you choose a hexagon cut for your stone, keep in mind that the edges of your ring may become dull over time if it is not properly cared for. As a result, make sure your stone is set in a strong setting, such as a prong or a bezel. Furthermore, because hexagon engagement rings have defined edges, they are more likely to catch on clothing or soft surfaces. Because snagging could be an issue with this style, remove your ring before engaging in any activities where it could get in the way. Keeping small ring dishes around the house to hold your ring when you remove it is an excellent way to avoid damage.

What to Look for When Purchasing a Hexagon Engagement Ring

  • Is it necessary for a gemstone to be hexagon-cut in order to be set in a hexagon setting?

    Not all hexagon engagement rings contain diamonds that are cut into this shape. Round-cut diamonds are frequently set in hexagonal settings, giving them a geometric appearance. When surrounded by a diamond halo or a fleet of baguette stones, these stones appear more angular.

  • Is there a setting that complements a hexagon-cut stone the best?

    Prong settings, such as our Kalmia Hex White Sapphire Ring, combine a traditional vibe with a more modern cut. It gives it a distinct appearance as well as a more secure position within the setting.

  • What is the average price of a hexagon-cut diamond?

    This is largely determined by the cut quality, as well as the other three factors used to determine diamond quality: clarity, carat, and color. This cut is becoming more popular, which could mean that it will soon be comparable in price to a round-cut diamond.

How to Look After Your Hexagon Engagement Ring

Simply use lukewarm water and gentle soap to clean your diamond hexagon engagement ring. Then, carefully scrub your stone with a soft-bristled brush until it is sparkling and clean. A colored gemstone, on the other hand, may necessitate more care than a traditional diamond. If you choose a topaz gemstone, for example, keep in mind that it ranks slightly lower on the Mohs scale of hardness than a traditional diamond. This means you should be especially gentle when caring for and cleaning your ring.
