As well as what their personal style and preferences are.

The diamond 4 C’s: cut, clarity, carat and color

To choose the perfect diamond cut and deciding for yourself when it comes to which diamond cut is best you need to look at just 4 things to start. There is more to look into after these four but they are the biggies to check out when looking at the characteristic features of a stone itself. 

  1. Cut 
  2. Color 
  3. Carat
  4. Clarity 

Each one of these has quite a lot of detail that goes into them. As well as caveats that tend to hold the one accountable if you will to the other. On top of that it is important to note that the cut of the diamond might not depend on the rest. However some of the rest like the clarity of the stone may very well depend on the cut. As we discussed above with the emerald cut diamond stones. 

Now the cut of the diamond does have the following three properties that will in the end of the day dictate the diamond’s quality. Those are:

  1. Fire: which is the way that white light scatters into all of the colors of the rainbow inside of a diamond
  2. Brightness: that is the internal and external reflection of the white light from within the diamond
  3. Scintillation: how much of a sparkle that a diamond produces, as well as the pattern of the light and dark areas that are caused by the reflections within the diamond stone

A come back from the more vintage style solitaire rings a Princess cut ring has a square look to it. A Victorian style that has clean cut sharp edges and geometric balance this cut is striking. More than the other diamond cuts this particular one capitalizes on the fire and brilliance within the diamond without being round. Although the edges are clean cut within the diamond there is still plenty of space and facets for a light show. Square in nature but still totally different from say the emerald cut diamond it is a unique take.

The particular Princess cut diamond solitaire ring above is featuring more than just the princess cut diamond though. On either side of the Princess cut diamond you can see two trillion cut diamonds adding to it’s brilliance. Lovely additions that work perfectly with this stone’s sharp edges. These two additional diamonds do two things for this ring. First it uses the three stone engagement ring style. Like that of Meghan Markle’s engagement ring. Also it ensures that there is bling and sparkle from your ring in every direction. It is a perfect example of how the diamond cut is not necessarily the end all be all.

Oval cut diamonds

The oval cut diamond has been around for a long time. While not as popular as the round cut diamond it is a special style. Much like the Princess cut diamond engagement rings the oval engagement rings are unique items. They are not the latest trend nor are they the most usual of the diamond engagement ring looks. There is another royal that made the oval cut a famous one. Although not a diamond cut Princess Diana’s engagement ring that now belongs to Kate Middleton is an oval cut.

While it is an oval cut sapphire that is surrounded by round cut white diamonds the shape continues. If you are looking for a vintage yet not over done and extremely classy diamond cut for your engagement ring then this is the one. Much more fitting to the length of your finger if you are going for a large carat weight diamond the oval cut also has benefits to the round cut diamond.
