Choosing a circular brilliant cut diamond with a carat weight that falls in between 0.30 and 5.00 will round off your engagement ring in fine fashion. A jewelry aficionado may need the ring to feature a large cut diamond set as its center stone against pitch white gold band.
While smaller diamond cuts are often set in an arch-shaped setting, which gives a classic feel on the finger. When you look to purchase an 18ct white gold diamond ring you have several cut diamonds to choose from, some of which include:
- The marquise cut that gives an impression that the center stone is actually larger than it appeals;
- A cushion cut with somewhat larger facets and allows better light dispersion; and
- The square-shaped diamond cut featuring stepped facets called the emerald, which produces an effect called ‘hall of mirrors’.
