Shopping for an engagement ring is one of the most exciting moments that couples share. If you want to pop the question in an unexpected way and get her to say yes, you might consider buying the ring long before you ask her to marry you. While you will find a number of different rings available in stores, you may want to look at the benefits of a custom-designed ring that you make just for her or that you design together.
A Ring Like No Other
Designing a custom engagement ring lets you create a ring she’s never seen before. Though professional
designers work hard to produce rings that appeal to different types of shoppers, designing your own ring puts you in complete control. You can add in small elements that remind her of important moments you shared together, a colored diamond that appeals to her sense of style or other details to showcase her personality.
Cut, Clarity and More
When designing a custom engagement ring, the decision as o how the final ring looks is up to you. Though you might think you can’t afford an elaborate ring, your designer can work with you to make the finished ring look amazing and still fit within your budget. You can draw inspiration from antique-style engagement rings that you see online or from specific shapes like oval-cut rings. Not only do you get to decide on the cut you want to use, but you can also select the clarity and the number of karats used in the diamond as well.
Show Your Commitment
Proposing to your loved one shows your commitment. It shows that you took the time to think about your relationship and choose a ring that is just as special as your future spouse. Whether you use a princess cut ring as your inspiration or any other type of design, the right ring makes it even more special when you pop the question. She’ll look forward to telling everyone about the time you spent designing the perfect ring just for her.

The slimming and radiant oval cut engagement ring showcases a fancy cut diamond belonging to the modified brilliant category. This classification describes shaped diamonds that are crafted from a round brilliant cut foundation, utilizing the same facet pattern and maximizing brilliance. The pear, heart and the delicate diamond of a marquise cut engagement ring are also modified brilliants.
Lazare Kaplan introduced the world to the modern oval cut diamond in the late 1950s, most likely inspired by his impressive family legacy. Kaplan’s cousin was Marcel Tolkowsky, the creator of the round brilliant cut diamond which forever changed the jewelry world in 1919. Both cousins proudly hailed from a lineage of master jewelers and diamantaires, dating back to the early 1800s. Even with the early fame and success of the family, their incredible craftsmanship did not stop there. As of 2009, some Tolkowskys are representative of the 7th generation of master jewelers.
The length-to-width ratio of an oval will span a range of approximately 1.33:1 to 1.66:1. A lesser ratio will present a fuller and rounder shape and a greater ratio will form a longer and more slender oval. The preference in proportions is completely subjective and as with any diamond, should be selected based on what is most visually pleasing. Marquise cuts, pears and ovals lend a slimming effect to the hand and visual elongation of the ring finger.The shape, large table (top facet) and relatively shallow stone depth also offers a visibly larger diamond with a lower price tag per carat than other cuts with a taller profile. An oval cut engagement ring is an ideal option for those that desire the fire and brilliance of a round cut diamond without being tied to the shape or price tag. Mark Broumand’s collection of oval cut diamond engagement rings represents a vast array of sizes, colors, styles and settings to match every taste. This incredibly versatile diamond easily transverses time between vintage era and contemporary chic and will work well as a diamond engagement ring, right hand ring or anniversary ring.
