Classic Diamond House’s Diamond Buying Guide

diamshapes

Most diamond rings are bought as engagement rings, so we want to be the first to congratulate you on taking this beautiful next step in your life with your partner! Buying a diamond ring can be nerve-wracking and exhilarating at the same time, and Classic Diamond House is here to make sure the process goes as smoothly as possible.

 

To get started, we’ve compiled this diamond buying guide that allows you consider all the aspects that go into buying an engagement ring or other piece of jewelry: cut, size (also usually going by carat weight), and the remaining of the “4 Cs:” clarity and color. Work your way down this page to consider all your options, keeping your loved one in mind.

 

The shape of a diamond ring (also known as the cut) is what’s most noticeable in most pieces. The most popular cuts are emerald, marquiseprincess, ovalpear, heart, round, and Asher. Our chart below allows you to see all the cuts at once.

The most popular cut is usually the round or princess shape. However, feel free to choose whatever your future spouse will like most and what best fits their style.
