What Does Your Preferred Diamond Shape Say About You?

Whether you are a blushing bride excited to venture into the world of diamonds alongside your partner, or whether you are an eager groom-to-be in search of the perfect ring for the love of your life, you may wonder where exactly you should start the engagement ring shopping process.

We often recommend determining the diamond shape or shapes you like best to create a foundation from which to build and design your perfect ring. While diamonds are beautiful, sparkly, and show-stopping in nature, they behold more than meets the eye. Diamond shapes reflect and enhance the wearer’s personality; they can highlight those characteristics you have grown to love about your partner, or they can highlight aspects of your personality with which you have yet to reveal to the world. 


Diamonds can be bold, timeless, elegant, feminine, edgy, fun-loving, and so much more. So, what exactly does your preferred diamond shape say about your personality? Or, how can you be sure that you are choosing the best diamond shape to enhance your personality? 


Read through our diamond shape list to find the diamond with which you best identify. Keep an open mind, you may be surprised!

Flirty and romantic and passionate beyond measure. 

The heart-shaped diamond is the epitome of a sentimental gesture that allows the recipient bride to (literally) wear their heart on their hand.

Passion and sentiment are emanating from deep within, and you love the idea of displaying your love for love on your dainty hand.

Your edgy glamour is a coveted trait, and your larger-than-life personality makes all those who meet you say: “She sure is special!”

You Are…

Polished, structured, and effortlessly stylish. 

The emerald cut diamond features a polished step cut that creates a window of mirrors effect highlighting clarity above all. Not unlike the sophisticated cut of the emerald diamond, you thrive within the loose confines of structure to reveal your perfectly polished self. But, this doesn’t take much effort from you, emerald bride! You are effortlessly stylish, effortlessly polished, and your craving for structure only allows you more freedom to thrive. 


Emerald-Cut Diamond Styles

The beautiful, structured geometry of the emerald-cut diamond is best paired with styles that enhance the center stone symmetry. A curving or split pave band, equally disciplined emerald cut side stones, or a custom channel set band with a row of accenting emerald cut diamonds will create an effortlessly chic aesthetic admired by all.
