Especially when perusing engagement rings, which are often one of the most significant purchases you’ll ever make, every little detail can mean everything.
To the naked eye, every one of our diamonds can be exquisite, and each is equally gorgeous. It can be difficult to differentiate which is better than the other and has greater value. Don’t worry. We at Portofino Jewelry are here to assist you. We’ll be your expert eye when it comes to picking out the right diamond ring for you.
Here is everything you need to know how to choose:
This square shape has a flat top and is pyramid-like, making it look bigger than it is. It's a frequent engagement ring pick.
This shape is considered the most popular as it highlights the brilliance and quality of the diamond.
This shape is classic and matches any type of jewelry. It's as perfect for long and slender fingers as a round cut.
This cut has a long, tapered, elongated oval shape that gives it a greater carat size with sharper ends.
This shape is a vintage style from the '80s and resembles — as the name suggests — a pillow. It is mainly square-shaped with rounded corners and a more prominent face, making it appear more transparent.
This shape is a mixture of round and marquise, giving it a more delicate look and making the hands of the wearer appear slimmer.
This shape is similar to the princess cut, but it instead has a long rectangular shape with rounded corners to highlight its color and clarity.
This shape combines the brilliance and purity of round and emerald diamonds and can blend beautifully with other shapes as well.
Similar to the princess and emerald shapes, the asscher can sometimes be at the upper end of the price spectrum.
Aside from knowing how to choose the perfect diamond, you should also get the Diamond Grading Report. This is an unbiased laboratory outline that shows information about the diamond and acts as proof of what you are purchasing.
Another thing you may consider is having the diamond assessed and insured. The grading report is the basis of the appraisers. Having your precious stone insured is a means to protect you from financial backlash in case of theft, loss, or damage.
To find the perfect diamond ring, especially for engagements, keep in mind that the style and shape should match your style. Choosing the right jeweler is of great importance.
