Diamond Engagement Ring Cuts She’ll Love

Getting engaged is an important milestone. It means that you’re ready to begin a new chapter in your life. Mark this special occasion with a diamond engagement ring that speaks to your partner.

As a symbol of your commitment to one another, your significant other will be wearing the piece for life, so choosing a diamond engagement ring she’ll love is essential. Tip: Look at her saved Pins or current jewelry. When shopping for an engagement ring, there are many factors to consider, most of important of which is the 4Cs.

The 4Cs represent color, clarity, cut, and carat weight and are used primarily to describe diamond quality. You can determine which Cs are most important to you to mix and match.

A diamond must be proportioned symmetrically to deliver spectacular sparkle. The cut makes this possible and should, therefore, receive a considerable amount of attention. Round, square, rectangular, and other shapes are created through the cut. Some cuts, like trillion and marquise, may even give you more value for your money. Be sure to discuss design options with your Cornelis Hollander Jewelry Designer.

Here are five diamond engagement ring cuts that your significant other will cherish forever.

Round Brilliant Cut

A timeless choice, the round brilliant cut delivers magnificent sparkle and can be designed as a solitaire that rests in your choice of setting and metal. A double or swirl band in platinum compliments this cut nicely and looks stunning. Another option is to custom design a round brilliant cut with pear-shaped, bullet, or round side stones. The later creates a three-stone diamond engagement ring that anyone is sure to love.


Make a statement with this sophisticated cut. The princess-cut is the second most popular diamond after the round brilliant cut as it too offers electrifying sparkle. Princess-cut diamonds can be set as a solitaire or with flattering accent stones such as trillion or baguettes. The cut’s versatility makes it appropriate for several swoon-worthy ring settings, like half pavé (shown above), and metals.

Asscher Cut

Named after its developer in 1902, the Asscher cut retains a retro, Art-Deco look that has been refined over the years. Characterized by a nearly octagonal shape, along with significant wide-set facets, the Asscher cut provides the ring with an elegant look. The Cullinan I and Cullinan II diamonds, according to the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), are two of the most famous Asscher cuts in history.

Trillion Cut

Symbolizing strength, trillion cut diamonds are triangular and can be set as a solitaire or as accent stones, depending on what specific look you’re going for. Trillion cut rings are bold, beautiful, and something unique – which makes them ideal for women who want to express their individuality. The cut, which can be set in several ways, provides excellent sparkle.


Also called the Navette (meaning “little ship” in Old French), the marquise cut has a distinct feeling to it, with a royal history to boot. It’s long, slender outline elongates the fingers, providing a stylish look. With its symmetrical, graceful appearance, the marquise cut can complement any setting, although halos and pavé give a radiant appearance, as well as metal type.

Available metal types/colors on any of the mentioned engagement rings include rose, white, yellow, and two-tone gold, and platinum.
