iamond engagement rings tend to look the same when you look at them from woman to woman. She will usually have a round brilliant cut diamond set in solitaire mounting which would be a simple 2mm shank in white gold with a few pieces of melee running down the shoulder. However today you can choose from no less than a hundred different brands of uniquely cut diamonds. There must be at least 25 to 30 brands of round brilliant cuts alone. They may be all round but they all have a different type of cut pattern that is usually patented with abundant claims that their cut renders their round brilliant the most sparkly diamond available on the planet.
Some of these brands include, Hearts on Fire, Eighternity, Lazare, Rand and many others. Some of the differences are subtle while others are blatant. For instance a difference between a hearts on fire versus a Lazare diamond would hardly be discernible since they are both cut according to the same strict standards applied to the ideal cut round brilliant as introduced by Tolkowski. Other cuts such as the Eighternity show a completely different face up pattern when compared to the Lazare and Hearts On Fire round brilliants.
Some of the greatest innovations in unique diamond engagement rings comes from the square cuts. Modified cushions like the Carelle from the Gabrielle diamond brand and the combined step and square cut like the Lucerne are quite strikingly different from anything else on the market. When mounted in an wedding ring mounting, their individuality and one-of-a-kind nature is truly self-evident. You don’t need an outlandishly artistic mounting to construct a perfectly unique engagement ring based on these square cuts.
However if you are stuck with your basic round brilliant diamond then you would need a mounting with a bit more oomph to it as far as creativity is concerned so they actually have a unique ring. There are many different types of mountings that could lend some creativity to your basic round brilliant diamond. Tension set rings come to mind as well as two toned rings and mountings with several metals combined like a Mokume Gane mounting. You could also go with a very high-end designer of engagement diamond rings like Henry Dunay and you would be assured that not very many women would have the same engagement ring as you.
A little research and investigating into the benefits offered by these branded diamonds is a good place to start in your quest for your unique style of diamond ring. Although they are pricey, the benefits outweigh the costs for many women who want the best for themselv
