What makes all the difference when it comes to choosing the diamond engagement ring of your dreams? The cut because the brilliance and fire of a diamond depend greatly on it. Simply put, the cut affects the amount of light going in and reflecting back to your eyes, resulting in the intensity of sparkle that you see. 

Beyond the round brilliant cut which is by far the most popular, there are other diamond cuts that could pique your interest. To help you find your perfect match, here are some diamond cuts that you should know.

It's no surprise that the classic round brilliant is the most popular. Thanks to its 58 facets, a perfectly proportional round brilliant diamond allows for maximum light reflection. In other words, this diamond cut sparkles above the rest.

A classic appearance with a modern twist, an oval cut can have just as many facets as a round brilliant, which means it has the capacity to sparkle just as much. Its long-ish shape is flattering on any finger, giving it the illusion of length.

Boasting a large, rectangular shape with step-cut facet, the emerald cut is ideal for diamonds with a high grade of clarity. This cut can appear larger than its round counterparts and elongates the finger for an ultra-flattering appearance.

Marked by curves and pointed edges, the marquise cut gives an illusion of the largest looking diamond, in comparison to other diamond cuts of the same carat. This opulent cut also elongates and slenderizes the finger. Some even say that its classic yet whimsical shape resembles a smile.

Combining the boldness of the emerald cut and the brilliance of the round, the radiant cut has an eye-catching sparkle. It is a hybrid shape that is generally square or rectangular, with slightly cropped corners creating more durability.
