I prefer a round-cut diamond ring. I think the round cut is classic and it allows me to play with other elements, such as the metal or the band design to add unique touches to the ring. But for me the diamond itself must always be classic. However, if you're in love with an emerald or marquise cut, 77 diamonds online storefront has a style feature that lets you preview different cuts, and metals. Have fun!!!

OK, here are my picks for finding unique engagement rings:

Tip: Experiment with shapes.

Why it works: Again, I went with the classic round-cut flanked by pear-shaped diamonds that give the appearance of a marquise cut, but is, at it's core, still a classic round-cut. I think yellow or rose gold will set off these shapes the best. This is a very pretty and very elegant diamond ring.
