Cushion Cuts

Another trend among celebrities is the cushion cut, which is a square or rectangular cut with rounded edges.  Also known as pillow cut, they have amazing brilliance and a classic look with a bit of a twist. The larger facets highlight the diamond’s clarity, so be sure to choose an SI clarity or better to show off the diamond.

Halo Settings

The last trend for diamond engagement rings are the halo settings. These rings have a brilliant center stone, surrounded by smaller diamonds.  These smaller diamonds form a “halo” around the outside of the center diamond, which can be any shape, but are usually round, pear or cushion cuts. This style of ring is probably the most popular at the moment, so if you choose this, you will definitely make the right decision.
