Calling All Fashionistas
Ever wonder what the most popular engagement ring diamond cut is? Certainly over the years since it became fashionable in the western world to offer such a diamond ring to a betrothed back in 1930’s the shape of preference has changed. One thing has not changed, western women adore the practice, as eighty percent of them receive a diamond engagement ring in America.
Much to the relief of many a future bride, rings which were traditionally selected by the man, both parties are going shopping for the gemstone. And which shape are they flocking to? Well let’s start backwards shall we, the second most favoured of the cuts is the square Princess cut. Head and shoulders above all of the other contenders is the round brilliant cut. Interestingly, at this time the band of choice seems to be with out a doubt platinum no matter which gem is chosen.
Though this specific practice is under a hundred years old, its growth foretells a solid future for many decades to come. I recommend further reading on the history of the diamond engagement ring should you be preparing to become engaged, for it is a fascinating one, and you are saying more than you might think with that display of expense and beauty wrapped around your finger.
