Engagement Ring Shapes 2023: The Ultimate Guide
Whether the ring that best symbolises your unwavering love is bold and modern or elegant and timeless, choosing a stone shape, or cut, that best reflects your unique story and personality is an important and everlasting decision. Here at The Moissanite Company, we value your love story, and are here to help make you confident in your decision so that no matter which stone shape you choose - it will be perfect for you!
With our experience in helping so many lovely couples on their journey to find their perfect forever ring, here is a collection of the top 3 stone shapes that we expect to be popular in 2023.
Emerald cut gemstones, the epitome of elegance. Typically distinguished by their linear straight facets, emerald cut gemstones boast an elongated rectangular shape with soft cropped corners. The emerald shape is the most popular of the step-cut faceted gemstones, accentuating their glassy clarity and understated elegance. This has comparably fewer facets than brilliant cuts, reflecting less light and consequently less fire. Perfect for those looking for a classic, sophisticated, cultured gemstone engagement ring. Elevated with modern and timeless ceremonial rings, the classic emerald shape is undoubtedly a popular choice.
At the Moissanite Company, our signature Audrey Ring features a beautiful emerald cut cultured gemstone with step-cut faceting elegantly presented in a divine basket setting. An exquisite piece exuding unparalleled brilliance and radiance.
Our oval cut cultured gemstones are a shape that exudes elegance and for apparent reasons, have gained popularity in recent years. The oval shape has a modern yet timeless appeal, boasting a beautiful elongated appearance - often making the diamond appear larger than its carat weight suggests due to its physical spread. Depending on the carat and cut of the gemstone, oval shapes can also slightly vary in shape, with some stones appearing more elongated than others. Oval cut diamonds also have excellent brilliance and fire, making them a desired choice for those who adore that mesmerising sparkle.
At the Moissanite Company, our signature Luise Ring™ is a popular modern classic featuring an oval cut cultured gemstone in a beautiful basket setting, blending style and femininity with a millennial twist.
The cushion cut diamond is a vintage-inspired shape that has grown in popularity in recent years. Similar to the classic cushion cut, the Elongated Cushion has rounded corners and a pillow-like appearance, giving it a soft and romantic look. However, a cushion cut is considered elongated when the length to the width ratio surpasses 1:1.1, providing the gemstone a more extended, rectangular structure. Cushion cut diamonds have mesmerising brilliance due to their rounded corners and large facets, which makes them a popular choice for those who want a unique yet timeless style.
For those who admire the elongated cushion, our Ophelia Ring is a divine choice, featuring an elongated cushion cut cultured gemstone in a beautiful basket setting. This divine ring offers a unique blend of oval and rectangular stone shapes you'll adore forever.
