Diamond Rings And Diamond Shapes

in Diamond

Diamond rings have come into their own. While always a choice for engagement rings and wedding bands, today they are also a choice as a right finger ring, and there are all kinds of diamond shapes to choose from. Let's have a look at a few.

Round Brilliant - The round brilliant is the modern day version of the round with a lot more sparkle and shine. It is the most popular choice in diamond rings.

Oval - The oval isn't used often in solitaires but it is a popular choice in rings that have three stones, such as anniversary rings. Three ovals the same size or a larger center diamond with a smaller stone on each side are popular.

Asscher - The Asscher is a diamond that is cut square. It is similar to the emerald with clipped corners and step facets. It's become very popular in the last little while.

Emerald - The emerald is a traditional shape that has step facets and clipped corners. It may be old world but its popularity increased when Tiffany first set it in an open setting about a century ago. That way light could pass through and it took what was once a drab cut to a new level.

Princess - This square cut diamond has almost the brilliance of the round brilliant diamond and is more popular than the Asscher and Radiant.

Radiant - The radiant was popular before the princess. Today it has lost its popularity.

Marquise - The marquise is a popular choice still today even though it is a traditional shape.

Heart - While once popular it has lost its popularity and may be harder to find these days.

Pear - You'll find the pear shape continues to be popular, especially in pendants. It reflects light nicely and has good proportions. Stay on the edge of fashion accessories with diamond rings.
