Of course, a diamond does not have to be the traditional round brilliant cut in an engagement ring and can be a simple way to personalise a classic solitaire design.

We are blessed with an ever increasing range of fancy shaped diamonds as the technology to cut a diamond from the rough advances. In addition to the well-loved shapes, we are familiar with such as the Oval, Emerald Cut, Princess and Marquise, diamonds may be found in more individual shapes and faceting styles such as the Glacier cut (unique to Diamond Guild member jeweller Calleija), Asscher cut, Cushion and Kite shaped stones to name just a few. Why not ask your jeweller for fancy shape options when designing your engagement ring?
