This setting is a timelessly classic way to showcase a sparkling center stone, as it will flatter your diamond perfectly. The smaller gems in the halo are stunning in their own right, but they also make the center stone stand out for all the right reasons, especially when the color of the halo stones or their setting provides contrast.

Its numerous facets and angles create unsurpassed brilliance in catching and reflecting light. You may prefer it because it works well in virtually all ring settings.2715-6

The Newer Rival

Some contemporary brides prefer the more subdued brilliance of the symmetrical princess cut diamond, first designed in the 1960s. This diamond is typically a perfect square but can occasionally be a rectangle and is perfect in settings that protect its pointed edges. Princess cut diamonds also reflect light superbly.3479-5

Other Popular Contenders

While round and princess cut diamonds dominate the top spots on the modern bride’s wish list, you may be interested in some of the other, more luxurious options. The emerald cut diamond is loved for its simplicity and hall-of-mirrors effect. With a large table, it is the perfect choice for extremely clear diamonds.3577-5

Another choice for the sophisticated bride is the cushion cut diamond. Resembling a square, this diamond has rounded corners, which soften its effect. Most of these diamonds have numerous facets and reflect the light with a crushed ice look. Although this cut was most popular in the early 1900s, it has gone through a revival with an increasingly modern look.3287-5

Will She Love It? Going Beyond the Three C’s

Posted on November 12th, 2015

While an understanding of diamond cut, clarity, color and weight are important when shopping for an engagement ring, don’t get so caught up in them that you forget to match your special partner’s personal taste and style. At Mark Broumand, we’re fond of every piece of jewelry we create, but your fiancée may have more specific tastes. Here are some tips for making sure she loves her engagement ring as much as she loves you.

Watch What She Wears

Pay attention to the jewelry your girlfriend wears to get an idea of what type of ring she might like. Some women prefer to drape themselves in yellow gold while others prefer white gold or platinum. Remember that you need not look only at her rings for suggestions. Earrings, necklaces and bracelets can all give you an idea of what type of jewelry she prefers. Observe the color of her gemstones as well. Fancy diamonds are available in a myriad of colors, so consider getting her a diamond in her favorite hue.1.87ct Fancy Yellow Brown Cushion Cut Diamond Engagement Ring

Gather Accomplices

Your intended’s best friend knows what she wants. The two of them have been discussing it since they went to grade school together. Swear your accomplices to secrecy if you’re going for a surprise, but ask them what she likes. Her friends and family will know which rings fit her style and which cut she prefers. The final decision is, of course, yours, but having a few helping hands can be quite beneficial.3792-5

Consider Her Activities

When your girlfriend sees the stunning diamond you have chosen for her, she won’t want to take it off again once she puts it on. Make sure she doesn’t have to by choosing a ring that fits her lifestyle. Women who work with small children or place their hands in tight places may want a ring that sits close to their finger rather than standing too tall above it. This stunning emerald cut ring, for example, has a much lower profile than this beautiful cushion cut piece. Each ring is extraordinary, but a woman who works in an office may have an easier time wearing the cushion cut piece than someone who works more with her hands.3658-5

Ask Her

Although this may take away the element of surprise, the simplest and most effective way to know which ring your new fiancée wants is to ask her. Even if you talk to her and shop with her, you can still keep the final ring you choose a surprise. Simply ask her what she likes or go ring browsing with her. Then, you can buy the one she loves or surprise her with one that has the same features.
