Sparkle season has arrived! It’s officially engagement season though the year 2020 has really been all about engagements…that has been a silver lining of the pandemic.

If you and your beloved are talking about taking your relationship next level, there is no better time to do it. No doubt you have an idea of what you love in a ring style, but there are so many options out there to choose from today you may find it overwhelming to isolate exactly what your perfect enagement ring style is. Here’s a primer of the most popular diamond cuts, who they are perfectly suited for and what celebrity rocks this style (always a great point of reference!).

Your style is sophisticated and polished, and while you are a little bit classic you also love a unique twist on things.

Three Stone Ring
This is a of course is a style setting, not a stone cut, but we had to include in the mix. You love a classic vibe with a modern twist. We love the flash and elegance of a trio of stones, especially when you throw a fancy gem into the design as the star attraction.
Celebrity Match: Meghan Markle
