How to Find the Perfect Diamond Shape

If you’re like most men, you may not realize that diamonds come in different shapes. So, not only do you need to consider the 4 C’s of diamonds (cut, colour, clarity, and carat), but you also need to decide which diamond shape to choose for your sweetheart’s perfect custom engagement ring. The good news is, diamond shapes often reflect certain characteristics of the women that wear them, so we’ve created this guide to help you choose the perfect diamond based on your fiance’s character.

The Most Common Diamond Shape for Diamond Rings

The most common diamond shape is round. If you’re struggling to make the decision, creating a piece of custom jewellery with a round diamond is the safest bet. You can always have a Calgary jeweller customize the setting and design of the ring itself in order to add some unique personality to the piece.

Choosing the Perfect Shape for a Custom Engagement Ring

Too many choices can destroy a man which is why we’ve created this list of five of the top diamond shapes and the certain features each one exudes.

Princess: If your sweetheart loves a more traditional look chances are she might love a princess shaped diamond for her custom engagement ring. The square shaped stone is the second most common next to round gemstones.

Asscher: Also in the square-shaped family, Asscher diamonds are ideal for a girl that’s into vintage everything. If your home is filled with doilies, antiques, and old-fashioned floral prints, chances are your girl will love an Asscher diamond.

Pear: Pear, or tear-shaped diamonds, are gaining increasing popularity for custom diamond rings. If the lady in your life is beautifully unique and breathtakingly independent, she will probably die for a pear-shaped diamond in a simple set ring.

Cushion: Cushion-shaped diamonds are also great for vintage lovers, but they’ve got a more fancy look than Asscher diamonds. Cushion cut diamonds call back to the time of classic fairytales and love stories. Cushion diamonds are perfect for the true romantic!

Emerald: If your lady is the epitome of elegance and glamour, she’ll love an emerald shaped diamond adorning her finger. Emerald diamonds are precise and sophisticated stones.
