Diamond Engagement Rings
An engagement ring, that small, precious thing many will wear every day for the rest of their lives, carries a lot of emotional weight. It symbolizes a couple’s love and commitment to the world. It shares their history, and their hopes and dreams. And then there’s the cost: according to The Knot 2016 Real Weddings Study, consumers in the market for diamond engagement rings spent an average of $6163.00 in 2016.

Round cut diamonds exhibit the brilliance of a stone by reflecting the most light. Perhaps this is why round cut is among the most popular classic styles for engagement rings. They are also incredibly versatile: this shape will fit into nearly every type of setting. In fact, if you have an old family ring it’s diamond is probably round cut.
Marquise cut is a unique style that rose in popularity in the 1980s, and is seeing a comeback. Marquise cut diamonds are almond-shaped, and can be set either vertically or horizontally. They can be placed in a variety of settings, and look beautiful with jewels set on either side.
Princess cut diamonds are square-cut and can look either classic or modern. They can sit alone or in a setting with other stones.
