Have you dreamed of being a June 2013 Bride? There’s less than a year left to plan but only if you get engaged right now. An engagement ring is a tremendous investment, often costing hundreds or thousands of dollars, so for those considering a proposal piece or needing a hint to send to your beloved – Here are some Xxcellent shapes and their meaning.
The round diamond engagement ring is probably one of the most popular diamond cuts there is today. Other more fashionable diamond cuts may come and go depending on the trend but the round diamond cut will be here to stay due to its consistent demand. It is said that round diamonds account for more than 75 percent of all diamonds sold across all jewelry stores worldwide.
Meaning: Women who prefer it are usually drawn to its traditional romance, and they themselves are honest, faithful, and somewhat conservative. They can also be a little reluctant to accept change.
The oval shaped engagement ring is nearly the same as the traditional round, but it shows a bit of creativity and individuality. The similarity to an egg shape may also represent fertility or a desire for children, but it is a stable and faithful diamond shape.
Meaning: Women who prefer this shape are fairly traditional, but they do like to cut loose a little now and then.
The elongated pear shaped engagement ring shows a woman to be an individual, yet she still has a soft side for traditional romance. She may be a trend-setter with this unusual shape, although the teardrop shape may also be a prelude to tears of sorrow or joy.
Meaning: The woman who chooses this shape tends to set a high standard for herself and everyone around her. It can be difficult living up to her expectations so she must make an effort not to go overboard, especially with her mate.
