Did you know that there are engagement ring personalities? Yep. And above everything else, your ring’s personality should absolutely reflect your own! So let’s have a little fun with what choosing different engagement ring personalities say about you.
According to Olivia Landau, private jewelry from New York, “It’s important to ensure that you’ll fall in love with the stone when your significant other makes the big purchase.”
But she also recommends trying different styles to see what they look and feel like on your hand.
The best news? There are no wrong choices when it comes to choosing the cut of the stone in your engagement ring.
Here are eight of the most popular cuts – in alphabetical order – and what the engagement ring personalities reveal about your own!
Engagement Ring Personalities: an Asscher Cut says “I’m Old World & Sophisticated”
If you love antiques, you’ll love the retro look of an Asscher cut. They’re very similar to emerald cut stones, and many say that an Asscher is “a square emerald.” But Asschers have step-cut facets as opposed to brilliant-cut facets. That’s what gives an Asscher its elegant, understated look.
