Engagement and Wedding Ring Cuts, from Trendy to Traditional

If you like it and you want to put a ring on it, you need to know the perfect cut to fit your future fiancé’s personality. From the trendy to the traditional, we’ve collected dozens of diamonds from local jewelry stores that showcase different cuts. “Classic is always in style, so we are seeing solitaires that highlight a beautiful diamond of any cut,” says Sandra Shock of Orr’s Jewelers. Check out our illustrations for the simple shapes of each stone. We even have beautiful wedding bands for you to choose together, once you get passed the proposal. Until then, we can help you easily find the perfect piece to make her fall crazy in love!

wedding bands

“Most women are buying diamond eternity style rings for their wedding bands and doing two, one on each side of the engagement ring. A lot of men want two rings also. They buy one in gold or platinum for dressy occasions or work, and the second in titanium for sports or work that involves anything that could damage or scratch the gold.”  — Reina Vogliano, Chapel Hills Jewelry
