So, we are taking you through the most popular engagement ring cuts but will also show you the most popular on the market.
What are the most popular engagement ring cuts?
Before we let you in on the most popular engagement ring cut, we want to show you some of the very popular ring styles on the market.
Fun fact, did you know ¾ of the diamonds sold around the world are round cut diamonds? The round cut is popular because of its equal shape. The light shines in each facet of the diamond in such a beautiful way, making it very eye-catching and extremely breathtaking. We also find those who tend to stay consistent with their fashion and live very busy lifestyles go for the round cut diamond as an engagement ring choice!
The pear cut diamond, of course, is very similar to the oval cut, except it has a point at the end to symbolise a pear or teardrop. The pear cut is also born from the marquise cut diamond and is a beautiful classic shape. Those who often choose the pear shape, love it because it draws
attention! So, if you are a woman (or your partner is) who loves to stand out, this is the cut to choose!
The cushion cut diamond is a traditional diamond cut, which is still a popular choice. As the name suggests, its beautiful rounded edges and softer style makes this ring cut look similar to a seat cushion. A cushion cut diamond is usually bigger in size and represents elegance!
This is a great style for a vintage designed engagement ring.
The emerald cut engagement ring gives off a beautiful reflection, almost like a mirror. Although the sparkle might be less prominent, it does represent a classic and delicate style. Like the cushion cut, it is a larger size stone and is suited for the confident and bold type woman who
also likes a vintage flare!
The marquise style ring is set to look like a slim and delicate design. It is a very unique look, and of course, gives off a beautiful touch of elegance. When purchasing a marquise style engagement ring, the bigger, the better!
The beautiful style of the oval cut ring is another popular option. Like the round cut, it, of course, gives more with its larger surface size. An oval cut engagement ring can give off the illusion of length, so it can make fingers look longer and thinner. The oval cut is perfect for the woman looking to be unique, but also wants a touch of delicacy in a ring!
A beautiful mixture of a cushion cut and princess cut, the radiant is a classic cut perfect for those who like a mixture of the two styles. The best thing about the radiant cut is it pairs well with stones and other diamond cuts; it also looks beautiful on its own! The radiant cut is perfect for those who like a mixture of classic and traditional!
The most popular engagement ring cut
But surely there is one missing! Yes, there is, the most popular engagement ring cut in the engagement ring industry is the princess cut! The princess cut is a stunning style that sees four equal sides and four corners with a pyramid shape. It is often referred to as a fancy design and is one of the most fashionable styles when it comes to engagement rings. As it is very versatile, it is also less expensive, which is an added bonus for beauty! The princess style is the perfect balance of traditional and modern, which means it is great for any woman looking to have the perfect life balance, especially with their marriage!
