What’s your favorite gemstone cut? If it happens to be the pear-shaped cut, I am right with you. There is something about that shape that is uber-rich looking in a stone. They also have the lovely quality of making your fingers look more slender and delicate. Whenever I see a large carat weight pear-shaped diamond or Cubic Zirconia, I think about Elizabeth Taylor’s jewelry collection.

Below are 3 pear-shaped CZ engagement rings that celebrate the lovely, unique qualities of this cut.

I would be tempted to string them together as bling beading all around my bedroom and hang them in the sunlight at my kitchen window. Loose or set, a well-cut CZ is a thing of brilliance.

 

 

 

What Is The Most Popular Carat Size And Cut For Engagement Rings?

Although this site focuses primarily on the world of  diamond substitutes, if it has sparkle and can be worn on the finger, I have a hard time boycotting the topic. Because Cubic Zirconia and diamonds alike are worn as bridal rings, there are always interesting jewelry questions that pop up.

Diamonds are simply more expensive than substitutes. You can be on a budget and still afford a 5 carat Cubic Zirconia design. Choose a real diamond of the same size and it may cost half of your yearly salary.

If you could visit 1000 jewelry stores and ask them what carat weight and stone cut they sell the most of, what would it be?

The Stone Of Eternal Love

Diamonds have been synonymous with engagement rings since they first became popular in the 1930s. This stone is said to represent eternal love, strength and perpetual affection. With their popularity, endless options have become available allowing for a truly customized engagement ring. However, the most popular carat weight and cut for diamond engagement rings are testament to their timelessness and beauty.

A Perfect Example Of  The Average Carat & Cut

The Carat Is The Weight Of The Diamond
While many people believe that a carat is equal to the size of a diamond, a carat is actually the internationally-used weight unit used to measure diamonds. The carat weight of a diamond is equal to a weight measuring 0.2 grams. Rough diamonds, a diamond which has not yet been cut, come in a variety of sizes, shapes, colors, and purities. Today, the most popular carat size  for engagement rings is 0.37.

0.31 Carat Diamond Ring
This 0.31 carat diamond engagement ring is almost as large as the average 0.37 carat size. This gives you a better idea of the actual size as it relates to a setting.

 

The cut of a diamond is especially important when choosing an engagement ring. The cut is a diamond’s most important feature and will have the greatest overall impact on a diamond’s beauty. While the cut of a diamond does not refer to the shape of the stone, it does refer to the polish, proportioning, and symmetry.

Currently, the round brilliant cut is the most popular cut given to engagement ring diamonds. This cut, first developed around the 1900s, tends to showcase a diamond’s beauty and shows off the sparkle and shine associated with the stone.

Whichever carat weight and cut is chosen for an engagement ring, it is import to work with a reputable jeweler. With poor workmanship, even the most beautiful diamond can appear to be lifeless and dull. Also highly recommended; purchasing diamonds that have been graded and certified which will allow the purchaser to be assured they are getting what they have paid for.

Choosing the carat weight and cut for the perfect engagement ring can be a fun and rewarding experience as part of the process of popping the question.

What Your Engagement Ring Style Says About You

engagement ringHave you ever wondered what makes a woman choose one engagement ring style over another? In every young girl’s dreams, a handsome knight in shining armor gets down on his knees and says, “Darling, will you marry me?”.

While he holds out his love offering in an expensive- looking velvet box we can’t help but wonder what kind of precious goody it contains. Every princess has her preference; especially for a ring she is supposed to wear forever.

 

The Perfect Classic Solitaire Ring With A Four Prong Setting

For many women, an engagement ring can only be one thing; a large solitaire stone with four prongs; the larger the carat weight, the better. Yes, that is a wonderful choice. Whatever gem you choose for your special ring will be cherished and adored for symbolizing eternal love. What cut and shape will you choose?

 

Women Are Attracted To Different Cuts For Personal Reasons

The way a stone is cut allows it to reflect light, exhibit fire and thrill us with those amazing flashes of color that only a well cut gemstone can produce. Nothing says love like an engagement ring that shimmers in the light. Whether you choose genuine diamonds or a top-grade Cubic Zirconia, you will naturally gravitate to certain shapes over others. Your favorites reflect your personality.

How Do You Like Your Gemstones Shaped?

Fancy_cut_diamondsRound – Usually with 57 facets, this is the most popular and traditional cut. Perhaps a little conservative, this is a wonderful choice for the person who enjoys wearing classic styles. Simple and elegant never goes out of style.

 

Princess – This is second in popularity to the round shape, and is either square or oblong in shape. The cut of a Princess stone brings out its inherent sparkle. This is often chosen by extroverted women who love to dazzle and be dazzled.

 

Emerald – This cut, in contrast, is an oblong with long, rather sparse lines. The stone is cut to show its clarity, rather than its brilliance. Because there is no place to hide when it comes to the clarity of the gem with an emerald cut, it is often one of the most expensive options. This shape attracts the cool, classically-beautiful and confident woman.

Asscher – This shape was created over a hundred years ago and fell out of fashion. It has had a recent surge in popularity. The cut is reminiscent of a square emerald, and has a delightful Art Deco feel. Asscher cuts are often chosen by women who love vintage clothes and shabby chic.

 

Pillow – Sometimes known as the Cushion, this is a rather soft and sentimental square cut. It is pretty and dainty with its corners rounded to make the stone look truly brilliant. This is often the choice of women who like a certain retro look and who love to be surrounded by antiques.

Marquise – Dramatic and elegant this oval shape is pointed at each end. The shape is marvelous for women with long tapered fingers. A very bold choice, you need to have real confidence to carry off this unique shape.

Pear – The teardrop shaped pear stone is for the woman who likes something a little unusual. Sometimes people feel it is just a bit too reminiscent of a tear to be suitable for an engagement ring, others just love the shape and enjoy owning something really different.

Oval – Another classic shape that is very flattering to all fingers. Ovals are known to make your hand look long and slender. The cut generally focuses on sparkle. This is a good choice if you want to be slightly, but not too, unconventional.

Heart – Frequently chosen as a colored diamond, this is a lovely interpretation, especially for very young girls. Heart shapes are the perfect romantic choice.

 

Somewhere Over The Rainbow With Colorful Multi Stone Settings

Many people choose to have a multi stone setting with an eye-catching solitaire center gem accompanied by smaller stones either set around it or inlaid along the band. This kind of setting is perfect if you want to feature colored stones such as sapphires, rubies and emeralds, but have the glamor of diamonds too. Many people will recall Princess Diana’s famous oval sapphire surrounded by diamonds. For a while it seemed that everyone had that style of engagement ring.

 

Engagement Ring Designs That Make A Personal Statement

Choosing a colored stone is another way that a woman can make a statement. A colored stone is a little less conventional, and is generally chosen because of a deep affinity with a certain color range. For example, Diana’s sapphire echoed her beautiful blue eyes. If you think that wearing a pink diamond engagement ring or a blend of chocolate diamonds and yellow topaz sounds fascinating, you are a trend setter extraordinaire.

 

 Raised Versus Flat Settings

The question of a raised setting or a flat setting is important. A raised setting makes a stone look bigger and allows it to catch and reflect the most light. Lots of light refraction means lots of gorgeous dazzle and glitter. Of course, it is much more vulnerable to being knocked and damaged. For the active person, it may even get in the way. If you plan on wearing your engagement ring only on special occasions, then a raised setting is a good choice.
If you prefer to wear your ring all the time, then a flat setting, although less spectacular, is a safer bet. Dare we say, there is even an argument for having two complementary engagement rings, one for day to day wearing, and one for dress up occasions.

 

BoHo Choices-Under Every Hippy Lurks A Princess

Some unconventional girls won’t even have an engagement ring, but under every hippy lurks a princess. If you want to select an engagement ring which is completely different, then choose an antique piece, or have something especially designed just for you. Select semi precious stones like topaz and amethyst, even garnet, amber or turquoise can look stunning in the right setting.
It’s important not to rush into the choice of a ring. Of course, if the proposal is a surprise, then your man may have already selected one for you. If you don’t like his choice, then you are going to have to find a tactful way of saying so, or live with the ugly thing on your hand forever. If you think a marriage proposal is heading your way, it never hurts to start hinting about the types of designs that you really admire.
