Engagement Ring Intel: The Best Cut for Showing Off a Diamond

Before the “I dos” and the wedding planning, there’s the simple act of proposing. But there might be one very big detail you’re forgetting to consider about that beautiful engagement ring: the cut of the diamond.

The cut of a stone can make or break its beauty, and according to Refinery29, “Many consider a round cut to be best for showing off a diamond.” But why? Jewelry retailer Ross-Simons says, “The round brilliant is the most popular diamond shape and cut, with many sources citing that three-fourths of the diamonds sold are of this type. [They] are common because they reflect light best and are thus the most brilliant for their size.” So when a proposal is in the air, think about your answer, of course, but also remember the stone!
