I have a cut corner princess.  X-Factor from Whiteflash.  I love square shapes, and I fell head over heels for a Lucida.  Problem was that we didn’t have the budget for a Lucida.  So we got something similar.  I also looked at Jubilee, Princess of Hearts, and HOF Dream if you’re looking at that cut of diamond.  My ring sparkles like nothing else and I love it!

Boy designed mine, but it was still exactly what I wanted.  She’s a 3 stone round brilliant.  He did a great job!

I have a cushion cut, haven’t seen many people with a cushion cut and love the soft edges. My setting is sort of antique too which I love.

I have a square cut radiant.

Here is a clip from an article explaining diamond shapes:

"The radiant cut diamond is the first rectangular cut to have a complete brilliant facet pattern applied to both the crown and pavilion and as such presents a much more dazzling and brilliant diamond

Radiant cut diamonds are especially popular for fancy-color diamonds because the shape, proportioning and facet arrangement intensify the color."

I love that there are so many different options so that there is a cut that fits every personality.

I’ve got a rectangular radiant. I loved the rectangular, cut-cornered shape of the emerald cut, but wanted a little more flash. With the radiant, I got everything I wanted!

Mine is actually VERY unique. It is cut in the shape of an octagon. By having it this shape, it adds extra facets so that is sparkles like crazyyyy!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ My hubby picked it out all by himself. He saw how much it sparkled and knew instantly that it was the one for me! ๐Ÿ™‚

I have a princess-cut center stone with round side-stones. My wedding band also has round stones. I like the combination of two stone shapes.

I chose a simple round cut.  At first I wanted to be all unique and go for something totally different.  But then I picked my ring setting, and nothing suits the ring better than a round diamond!

Mine is an emerald cut.  I just like the vintage look to it, but silly me was so excited to look at things that I didn’t ask or research about what sparkles the most and all that.  I would eventually love to swap it out for a rectangular radiant, but I think this bad boy is with me until the end of time.  Now I know…le sigh.
