We all have dreams of what our engagement ring will look like, I know I did. I fell in love with the Princess cut way back in high school when someone I looked up to got engaged. In fact, it was my first engagement ring.
My tastes have changed and I currently sport a very classic round cut solitaire for my engagement ring and an eternity band for my wedding band. I didn't know all the different cuts of diamonds and wedding ring stuff until later in life, and I love it. I wanted to share a little here for you.
Round: Maximizes light return and sparkle.
Princess: Maximum brilliance
Cushion: Antique look, romantic appeal.
Oval: Extended sparkle
Marquis: Elegant and brilliant
Pear: Light dances, a combination of tradition and trend
Radiant: Retangular combined with round
Emerald: Distinctive antique look, romantic appeal
Asscher: Cropped corners and glacier like clarity.
Solitaire: A single diamond.
Pavé: The French word for “paved.” Pavé diamond settings are decorated with small diamonds that literally pave the band to give it nearly continuous sparkle.
Channel Set: Side diamonds embedded into a grooved channel of the band
Side-Stone: Featurea side diamonds, which bring out the brilliance of the center stone
Three-Stone: Three stones to represent your past, present and future together.
Tension: A ring setting that uses compression to hold a center diamond or gemstone in place.
Halo: A ring of small accent stones, typically pavé diamonds, that encircle a center stone.
Vintage: The main characteristics of the vintage style in the engagement rings are its meticulous designed elements and intricacies.
