Most Popular Designs for Engagement Rings

While exquisite engagement rings can be crafted from any one of these diamond shapes, here is a quick look at the most popular designs to help you on your journey to the perfect proposal.

Engagement Ring by Vanessa Nicole


By far the most popular style of engagement rings, this timeless shape accounts for over 75 percent of all diamond sales. If your special someone is the queen of sparkle, a round diamond is the way to go. Offering ultimate brilliance, its multi-faceted style generally consists of 58 facets that reflect light for a breathtaking look. Highly versatile, it complements a variety of settings and accompanying stones to produce dazzling and impeccable engagement rings.

Princess Cut Diamond - Vanessa Nicole


Almost as favored as round engagement rings, the square princess shape offers a similar level of brilliance with a unique look. Perfect for the bride-to-be who appreciates clean lines, this style is an elegant marriage of the designs from times past and today’s modern fashions. Due to their angular and sharp edges, engagement rings that feature this style require superior protective settings.

Cushion Cut Diamond - Vanessa Nicole


A happy medium between the round and princess cuts, this style is rapidly gaining in popularity due to consumers’ recent return to the love of all things vintage. Out of all the diamond shapes, these engagement rings feature the largest array of cut variations for a highly customizable design that can be either modern or antique. They can be square or rectangular. If your special woman loves the vintage look, this cut may be the perfect pick.
