Consider the shape of the diamond. The most popular shapes include round cut diamond engagement rings, princess cut diamonds, Oval cut diamond engagement rings , and pear shaped diamond rings. There are other interesting shapes such as the marquise, Ascher cut and emerald cut. All have their own unique look and beauty.

We have thousands of existing designs to choose from or we can look at bespoke engagement rings where we will guide you through the design process and look at inspiration for a unique one of kind ring.
