The round cut diamond is by far the most popular and most researched diamond shape today. If you are more on the traditional side, then this ring shape is for you. Try finding a classic and simple dress to match, such as Faviana Style 10085.

If you’re fashion-forward and want to show off the clarity of the diamond, then find an emerald shape engagement ring. This is a long, rectangular ring and will stand out with any dress. For the same clarity and shine, try a square-shape with an Asscher-cut.

For those with small fingers but a big heart, the shape of a marquise diamond makes your fingers appear longer and slender. Plus it gives you a much larger-looking diamond, so you’ll want to stick out your hand to everyone you meet! Look for this or an oval-cut.
