The time has come to finally design your dream engagement ring, the first order of business is to decide on what diamond shape you like. The shape you decide on has an impact on the overall look of the ring. Some shapes are more modern and dazzling whilst others focus on a more vintage look. Choosing a diamond shape however is mainly based on your own personal style and preference.
Out of all the different elements that come until play when choosing a diamond, you’re most likely to have the strangest feeling towards the shape. Before you buy a ring, it’s a good idea to check with the recipient if they have a favourite diamond shape. Other elements that contribute to the price include size, colour and clarity and can be tweaked later down the line.
The shape of a stone is often referred to as its cut. In this case, it’s important to be sure it’s not confused with diamond cut which referred to the polish, symmetry and proportions of a stone.
Diamond shapes can range all the way from the classic round which is so well known and loved, to be more modern shapes such as the fusion cut.
Ultimately you’ll be the one wearing the ring so pick a shape that you like and you’ll be loving your ring for years to come!
