The most exciting aspect of the engagement process can also arguably be the most agonizing: Deciding which type of ring you’ll have. After all, it’s the longest style commitment you’ll ever make.
Engagement ring is a symbol of the love, devotion, and fidelity a couple shares. The very shape and design of the ring, however, has additional symbolism that many couples incorporate when they design a ring or select the perfect ring to represent their relationship.
Well, here’s what you engagement ring says about you….
1. Round cut
You’re the sort of bride who likes classic, timeless things and doesn’t dress over the top. You always look smart, chic and classy without spending hours in front of the mirror. In short, the type of women men don’t worry about introducing to their parents.
2. Marquise cut
You’re the bride who loves being the centre of attention. The marquise cut will help you stand out from the crowd given its unique shape, which can also be characterised as a boat-shaped brilliant stone.
3. Princess cut
Created in the sixties, the princess cut was the on-trend ring back in the day. The shape has seen a revival in recent years, and is perfect for the stylish bride who always has her finger on the fashion pulse.
The emerald cut ring reflects the glamour of a Hollywood screen goddess. You’re the type of bride who has class, charm and effortlessly manages to be the centre of attention. The emerald boasts long, glamorous lines so suits women with long fingers.
5. Heart Cut
The heart-shaped bride is emotional, thoughtful and will see the delicately shaped ring as a very obvious symbol of love. The heart is the ultimate symbol of romance and sentimentality especially when presented in an engagement ring.
6. Pear Cut
Resembling a teardrop, this hybrid cut combines the features of the oval and marquise. If you love the brilliance and fire of the round cut diamond, but would like a unique shape to match your own your style and sensibilities, the pear is renowned as one of the more interesting fancy cuts.
Whatever the personalization, there is no denying that engagement ring symbolism factors heavily into a couple’s choice of ring. The most important thing is that the ring truly represent the love, honor, and commitment they will share for many years to come.
