Do you love a statement piece or a classic stytle? Are you a lijewelleryeelery person or do you like to change it up? Do you favour timeless elegance or love to be hip and edgy? We spoke to some industry professionals to find out what your engagement ring says about you.
What Your Engagement Ring Says About You
We’ve analysed every style to give you more insight into what persona you give off, just by your engagement ring.
A round diamond ring
A round-cut diamond is one of the most popular cuts for engagement rings. It sparkles like none other, thanks to the stone’s 58 facet. Perfect for a classical woman with timeless style, who has a real magpie-like love for sparkly jewellery.
The Modern Traditionalist
Princess cut diamond ring
The stone’s four pointed corners make it a modernist style engagement ring. An excellent choice for a bride with a modern sensibility in our opinion. If you are someone who loves a classic piece you can live in forever, this is a strong contender for you.
THE RISK TAKER
Emerald diamond ring
Fewer facets make an emerald-cut diamond all the more visible to the naked eye. We love the bold cut and often used in various settings it can be a great choice for vintage style.
The Effortless Romantic
Cushion diamond ring
A cushion-cut diamond gets its name from the rounded corners and curved sides that make it appear softer than a princess-cut diamond but not as circular as a round-cut stone. It’s very feminine and delicate and often paired with a woman of the same characteristics.
The Sparkle Addict
Radiant diamond ring
The shape mimics an emerald-cut stone but the facets allow for extra sparkle. It’s loud and blingy in all the right ways, so best suited to someone outgoing and strong-willed.
The Attention Seeker
Heart diamond ring
The Heart cut, an age-old symbol of love and romance is essentially a pear-shaped diamond with a cleft at the top centre. It’s not your classic cut engagement ring so if you’re looking for a real conversation starter and something that sets you apart, this is the one for you.
The Sophisticated Bride
Oval diamond ring
Essentially an elongated circle, an oval-shaped diamond can have just as many facets as a round-cut stone, which means it has the capacity to sparkle just as much. It’s an elegant and regal cut, great for classy and well-to-do women who want something a little different.
The Dramatic Bride
Marquise diamond ring
Because of their shape, marquise-cut diamonds often appear larger than life. The shape of the stone is made to maximise carat weight. The shape elongates your fingers so it’s an ideal cut for the nail-biter or those with dainty fingers.
The Independent Bride
Pear diamond ring
Also known as a teardrop, the pear-shaped diamond is a hybrid of the oval and marquise styles. It’s not one of the most popular styles for engagement rings but it is a bold style. Ideally suitable for women with bigger hands as it elongates the fingers nicely.
