Diamonds are renowned for their ability to transmit light and sparkle so intensely. We often think of a diamond cut as being the shape- for example, round, heart, oval, marquise and pear. However, a diamond’s cut grade is actually about how well a diamond’s facets interact with light. In other words, it’s about how much it SPARKLES! There is a huge variety of cuts out there that you can go for. Take a look below and see the options available, before deciding which cut and style of Engagement Ring suits you best!

Take a look at our previous commissions to see some of the showstopping designs we have created with these breathtaking cuts of diamonds.
