Which Cut Should You Choose When Purchasing Your First Diamond Engagement Ring?

Admittedly, shopping for a diamond engagement ring with your fiancé is an incredibly exciting time. You probably have a few ideas in mind of what your ring should look like. However, once you get to see the vast assortment of engagement rings available, choosing just one can be a daunting experience. And this can be attributed to the fact that a good number of people focus on the appearance of different rings and forget to take into account whether the rings will suit their taste.

Fortunately, you can simplify deciding by familiarising yourself with the various diamond cuts that are available, as this will help you determine which shape will suit your finger best. The following piece is a brief introduction to a few diamond cuts so that you can decide which option would be best for your first engagement ring.

Princess-cut diamond engagement rings

Indubitably, princess-cut diamonds tend to be a favourite for engagement rings, and this can be credited to the unique appearance that makes them look larger than they are. Princess-cut diamonds are characterised by their seemingly rectangular shape. Thus, if you are on a tight budget, you can opt for a diamond with fewer carats or limited clarity but the quality will be disguised by the length of the diamond.

Another advantage of princess cuts is that this shape works to reflect light from all corners of the diamond. Hence, people will not simply focus their attention on the centre of the gem. If you are keen on maximising the sparkle of this diamond but cannot increase your budget, you may want to consider laboratory diamonds, which are considerably more affordable when compared to their natural counterparts.

Emerald-cut diamond engagement rings 

If you and your fiancé are willing to splurge on your diamond engagement ring, you should consider opting for an emerald-cut diamond. This particular cut is renowned for how effortlessly it flaunts the gem's exquisiteness. The twinkling nature of an emerald-cut diamond comes from the array of facets that this cut is characterised by. The higher the number of rectangular facets, the more illuminated that these facets appear to be, and this makes your diamond engagement ring look like it is twinkling even without you having to move a finger.

If you have a flexible budget, you may want to consider customising the emerald cut by incorporating single-carat diamonds around the perimeter of the main diamond. Certainly, this type of diamond engagement ring comes with a premium price tag. Nevertheless, it can be cherished as a family heirloom for generations.
