Round cut and princess cut diamonds are the most popular options for engagement rings. However, which cut is for your fiancée? Although it is one’s personal choice at the end of the day, here is a guide to help you make that decision.
Choose a Round Diamond for your Fiancée if:
She is a Traditional Type
Round diamond engagement rings are a classic choice. If your fiancée is a traditional person, we do not see a reason to buck the tradition by choosing a different or modern diamond for her ring.
She Works with Hands Quite a Lot
Round diamonds do not have any sharp corners, which snag on clothing or create dents. So if your fiancée is an active person or is slightly clumsy, a round diamond ring is a safe and practical choice. For the maximum safety, pair the round brilliant center stone with a bezel ring setting to make sure it does not fall off easily from the setting.
She Wants a Simple Design
Does she not like plenty of bling? Is she no flashy bride? If the answers to the first two questions are a yes, then an engagement ring with round brilliant cut diamond is the best choice. It is timeless, effortlessly elegant, and works with any type of wedding band. Round brilliant diamond rings look stunning on their own, and do not require halo settings or paved bands for extra bling. Round brilliants are the most popular choice for an engagement ring, so getting an unobtrusive design for your active bride-to-be is easy.
Choose a Princess Cut Diamond if:
Your Fiancée Has a Contemporary Style
Princess diamonds became prominent only in the 1960’s period, so if she is a modern type, this is the one for her. Its corners and strong lines give a princess diamond an extremely modern aesthetics, and the stone looks just fabulous with the modern silver-toned precious metals such as platinum and white gold. Newly popular ring embellishments such as pave band also work particularly well with princess cut diamonds.
She Wants a Statement Piece
A princess cut diamond offers something extra than its round brilliant counterpart. If she is seeking a statement diamond engagement ring, a princess cut gemstone is a must. If she wants something that is conventional and contemporary, we cannot think of a superior option than a princess cut solitaire.
Go for a square princess cut as it is larger than a round cut counterpart; go for the latter if she wants more sparkle in comparison.
