Choosing the Right Diamond Ring Shape

When buying a diamond ring, your first consideration might be the price of the ring. There is nothing wrong with it. After all, you don’t want to bring home an expensive ring and regret buying it later on. You have to buy one based on your capacity to pay.


Other than the price, you also need to consider the shape of the ring. It is important that you find one that flatters your partner. It is also a way of telling her that you really know her well that you can find the perfect engagement ring without consulting her. These are some of the most common shapes that you can choose from.

  • Oval. This is perfect for women who have shorter fingers. The ring helps make the fingers look longer. They also look bigger due to the nature of the cut. Therefore, if your partner is the showy type who wants to show this ring to her friends, then this is the best shape to buy. It is very visible even from afar, so it would be perfect for her.

  • Marquise. This is not necessarily the best shape to give as an engagement ring because of its unique cut. It is not as popular as other shapes. However, if your partner wants something that stands out, then it is perfect for her. This is not like anything that is normally seen as an engagement ring. Your girl would definitely love to show off this ring.

  • Pear. This is perfect if your girl is someone who is really feminine, sophisticated and smooth. The shape is known for its slenderizing effect. This is not the first choice when it comes to diamond ring shapes, but it could be the cut your woman would love to wear.

  • Heart. This shape is the ultimate symbol of love. It may be too cheesy and ordinary, but it works for some girls. If she is not the serious type, then this is perfect for her. This works for ladies who are sociable, friendly and easy to get along with.

There are a lot of shapes of diamond engagement rings to choose from. You just need to find one that works well for your partner. Again, you need to know exactly who she is. This includes her physical appearance, attitude and interests. You can easily narrow down the choice in terms of shape if you know your partner well. Of course, you should. After all, you are planning to marry her. It does not make sense if you try to propose to her and you don’t even know the real her. Take note that choosing the shape is just the start. There are still a lot of other factors that you have to consider before you can decide which ring to buy for her.
