How to choose the right engagement ring

The most iconic symbol of a wedding is a diamond. For centuries, the wedding proposal is made by giving the bride a diamond engagement ring. With all different possibilities, how do you choose the right ring? Here are some tips:

There are many cuts of diamonds and many colours, clarities and cut grades. The most popular being the brilliant cut (round), so named because it is the most brilliant. Most other popular are modified brilliant, examples being pear, marquise, oval, heart, cushion, radiant and emerald cut.

The most classic engagement ring style features a centre diamond. In part because they are so brilliant and popular, round diamonds cost more than other shapes:
