Popular Diamond Shapes for Engagement Rings

Diamonds come in a number of different shapes here are ten most common choices for engagement rings .

The round brilliant diamond is the most popular cut for engagement rings. As its name implies, it has a rounded shape, and it is cut with a number of facets to reflect light and give it an appealing sparkle.

Princess cut diamonds are also very popular for engagement rings. They’re square and should have close to 1-to-1 width-to-length ratio.

Emerald-cut diamonds are rectangular and are usually cut with large facets that give them a very unique shape and look. High clarity is essential when choosing an emerald-cut diamond.

Asscher-cut diamonds have the same large facets as emerald-cut diamonds, but they have a square shape instead of rectangular. Again, higher clarity is very important when you go with an Asscher-cut stone.

Marquise diamonds maximize the carat weight and give you a larger-looking stone. If you’re looking for a ring with a large diamond, this may be the best choice for you.

Oval diamonds are another great choice if you’re looking for a larger rock. The oval-shaped diamond is cut in similar facets to a round brilliant diamond, but it tends to look bigger than a round or princess-cut stone.

Radiant diamonds are rectangular but with trimmed corners that are reminiscent of a round brilliant diamond and give it more sparkle.

Pear-shaped (or tear-drop) diamonds are narrower at one end than the other and tend to look larger than similarly sized diamonds in other cuts.

Heart-shaped diamonds are, of course, shaped like hearts, and are usually set in either a solitaire or side-stone ring.

Cushion-cut diamonds are either square or rectangular with rounded corners. They’re a very popular choice with halo engagement ring settings.
