When shopping for an engagement ring, it can be very confusing without the proper guidance from an expert. Knowing the basic information about diamond shapes, setting styles, and metal will help you select the perfect engagement ring.

Shape of the Stone

The shape refers to the appearance of the stone, and the cut to the diamond’s ability to reflect light. Our collection of diamond engagement rings features many different options for the shape of the diamond, from a traditional round brilliant cut to oval diamonds to fancy shaped diamonds, like pear and heart shapes. Here some examples of favorite cuts—all very distinctive:

  • Round – Classic and beautifully symmetrical, this is considered the most popular type of cut. The circular shape represents endless love and is a perfect match for a wedding bad. The round cut is also extremely versatile, meaning it can fit into a variety of settings and still produce the most sparkle of any cut.
  • Oval – Similar to round, but with a slightly longer contour that can run parallel or perpendicular to the ring finger. The oval is a more unique shape than the circular cut, displaying elegance and individuality all in one. Since this cut is so similar to the round cut, it is capable shining just as brilliantly.
  • Pear – Resembling a teardrop, this cut is round on one end and tapers to a point. Originally, this cut was inspired by the oval shape and focuses further upon its individualistic symbolism. This cut is designed to be worn in either direction, which allows for a variety of looks. When combined with the metals and settings, this cut makes a point to stand out.
  • Princess – Also referred to as a “square-cut” this shape has four symmetrical sides. This is a cut that has combined the best aspects of other styles, maximizing its glitter, but still retaining a more modern look. The combination of aesthetic qualities creates a unique presentation of past and present values.
  • Heart – Exactly as the name sounds, the stone is cut into a classic heart. This shape is for the pure romantic and its eccentric aesthetic presents a mix of fantasy and sentiment. The shape itself is rare enough to draw the eyes and accentuates any look that goes for the dramatic.
  • Emerald – This cut actually refracts the light differently than other cuts, giving the illusion that you are looking down a hallway of mirrors. This cut is inspired by its gemstone namesake and has a vintage feel that comes with its elongated shape. The expressive way the gem shines conveys a sense of conservation and coolness. The emerald cut shows a sense of confidence for a ring that emphasizes class over sparkle.
  • Cushion – The stone is cut like a quadrangle, but with rounded edges, creating the appearance of a diamond pillow. This cut is well-known for its extravagant appearance and distinctive look. The shape is meant to appear as large as possible and practically screams vintage luxury and elegance.

 

Engagement Ring Settings

The next step is to choose the perfect setting for your engagement ring. Options are solitaire, halo, pave and others. Vintage-inspired designs are also very hot. Certain settings make the center stone appear larger—a great option to boost the appearance of a smaller diamond—and it increases the overall sparkle of the ring.

  • Bar: This setting involves placing the gem in between two vertical bars. The position gives the sparkling jewel much more visibility with a greater chance to sparkle. This setting is open on both sides of the gem meaning that you can stack more into place depending on your style.
  • Bezel: Among the most popular types of settings, this setting encircles your ring in a custom-made hold. The stone is kept tightly in place and secured so that it does not snag and retains a sleek, modern look. If you are looking for form and function, then this setting provides.
  • Cathedral: The setting is defined more by how it is mounted on arches to extend its reach. This setting embodies elegant, bold, graceful and all the right kinds of flash to make your stone appear as large as possible.
  • Channel: Your gems will be placed into a row of grooves to decorate the sides on the ring or its entirety. This is a popular choice for wedding bands and may have multiple, smaller gems instead of a large one in the center.
  • Cluster: Just as the name implies, the stones in the ring are clustered together to look like a larger gem. The unique composition allows for the ‘center gem’ to form a variety of different shapes.
  • Eternity: Gems encircle the entirety of these bands all the way around the finger. They pair well with engagement rings and come in multiple styles.
  • Flush: Also known as the “gypsy” setting, where the ring is placed in a hole drilled into the band of the ring. This setting is sleek, polished, and extremely protective of the stone you put inside.
  • Halo: Any gemstones are stylishly placed in a concentric shape around the center stone to raise its appearance. A double halo choice adds another layer of gems to the ring.
  • Pave: Otherwise known as the “bed” setting, gemstones are closely placed together in a way that makes it look like one continuous gem. The gems are small, but the singular line creates a dazzling sparkle effect.
  • Prong/Solitaire: The most common type of ring setting, a prong is used to grip the gem tightly in place. This is the most classic and original style of ring setting possible.
  • Shank: With this setting the band of the ring will be altered into different shapes, like a square or another creative figure. There is also split-shank style, where the ring splits into two separate bands around the finger.
  • Tension: Here the ring is suspended in between two separate pieces of metal band to look like it is floating. The unique fixture provides a creative look that emphasizes the gem in place.
  • Three-Stone: Three stones are placed closely together in any arrangement you want. The gems may be different as well, allowing for a variety of combinations.

Diamond Ring Setting Metals

Lastly, choose your metal: platinum, white gold, yellow gold, or rose gold.
Each one has a very different characteristic.

  • Platinum: Shiny, aesthetically pleasing, and durable. This type of metal has remained a mainstay for engagement rings due to its purity and rarity.
  • White Gold: This metal consists of pure gold with some additional elements thrown in for improvement. The result is a shining white metal that is as beautiful as it is durable.
  • Yellow Gold: Pure gold is mixed with silver and copper to warm up the coloring. The result is this classic looking metal that matches any diamond.
  • Rose Gold: With a little bit of copper, gold takes on a rosy hue that embodies warmth and love alike.

 

CARAT, CUT, COLOR, AND CLARITY

Carat is the weight of the diamond which tells you the size of the diamond. The classic size is a 1.00tcw. 3.00tcw and more are sure to be eye catching and a wonderful investment piece.

The cut of a diamond is a description of how well it has been shaped. Diamonds are cut in different ways to improve their brilliance and beauty. How well a diamond was cut is what is important and it is what’s measured when you see a cut’s “grade.” The official GIA grades for cuts are Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair, and Poor. Having a well-cut diamond is extremely important as a better cut can improve a diamond’s appearance and a bad one will cause the diamond to be dull and in some cases appear smaller.

The color of a diamond is determined by the absence of color. The whiter a diamond is, the more rare it is, and therefore, more valuable. They are graded on a scale from D to Z, with D being the most colorless and Z being the most “yellow” grade of white diamond. When considering diamond color, you’ll want to think about how important it is to you that a diamond be colorless.

Clarity measures the amount of inclusions which are the imperfections inside the diamond, as well as blemishes which are imperfections outside the diamond. Inclusions and blemishes can make a diamond seem cloudy, make it sparkle less, and take away from its beauty. Clarity is measured using magnifications and diamonds are given one of the following grades: FL (Flawless), IF (Internally Flawless), VVs1 or VVs2 (Very, Very Slightly Included), VS1 or VS2 (Very Slightly Included), SI1 or SI2 (Slightly Included), I1 or I2 or I3 (Included).

If you’re looking to go the nontraditional route, a colorful diamond is a beautiful choice: fancy-hued diamonds, like yellow and pink, or even chocolate or black.
