Diamonds have several shapes: round, princess, cushion… each shape is unique and has its own characteristics. A square or rectangular princess-cut diamond has meticulously carved angles. The pear shape, for its part, is a mix between the round and the marquise shape is in high demand for a ring or a necklace. The pear shape is trendy again and adopted by many women.
The cushion shape has numerous facets which give an even more precious appearance to the diamond.
An oval or pear shape lengthens the appearance of the finger. A round diamond will look perfect on hands with thin and long fingers.
Slender and long fingers fit all ring shapes, particularly princess or even square. If you have small hands, the trend for the shape of your ring will be princess or oval.
Emerald is also a trend that is coming back into fashion a lot and is suitable for long and thin fingers.
The choice of your ring will depend on the size and shape that suits your fingers. Your personal taste will also impact your decision.

Once again, the size of the diamond will depend on your personal tastes and preferences but it will also depend on the budget that you are willing to allocate: the price of a diamond is calculated per carat .
