Our 3 Step Process
The Ultimate Guide to Choosing an Engagement Ring
You might be thinking that designing your own engagement ring, wedding band or anniversary band is complex, overwhelming, or out of reach. But we’re here to tell you it’s not! At Buchroeders Jewelers, we know what it feels like to want something specific, but not be able to find it anywhere else. That’s why we created an entire division of our business to custom bespoke bridal: so you can feel empowered and inspired by the idea of making something truly one-of-a-kind for yourself or someone close to you.
In addition to customizing every aspect of engagement rings—diamond and metal types included— our expert staff is here to help guide you through the process so that no matter what shape or size stone(s) you choose, the result is exactly what you want it to be. First and foremost, let's talk about the various diamond shapes you may look into when picking the center stone for your custom engagement ring.
Round Engagement Ring
A round diamond engagement ring is one of the most popular choices among women today. Round diamonds are often considered the classic choice for an engagement ring because they're timeless and elegant. This particular shape is known for its one-of-a-kind sparkle.
Oval Engagement Ring
If you’re looking for a ring that’s both classic and modern, explore designing an oval diamond engagement ring. An oval diamond engagement ring gives you the same brilliance as a round diamond, but with an elongated look.
Emerald Engagement Ring
Emerald cut diamonds are a classic in their own right. Their elongated shape and sophisticated lines make the stone appear larger than its carat weight would suggest. An emerald engagement ring is ideal for someone who wants something both modern and timeless.
Radiant Engagement Ring
Radiant diamond engagement rings are worth considering if you seek a classic, timeless sparkle. A radiant diamond combines the brilliance of the round cut with the sleek profile of the emerald cut. At first glance, you may mistake a radiant diamond for an emerald or cushion cut due to the fact all three of these diamonds come in both square and rectangular shapes.
Cushion Engagement Ring
Cushion-cut diamonds radiate a soft and sophisticated sparkle. The unique shape and rounded corners of these stones increase the size of facets, resulting in an elegant display of light that is classic and versatile. Cushion diamond engagement rings look just as good set in our Signature Solitaire as they do when set in our Three Stone.
