5 Ways to Make Your Diamond Look Unique

Diamond Shaped Princess Cut

The first shape is the diamond shaped princess cut. The “Square Modified” also known as the princess cut takes on a totally different persona when it is set diagonal within a setting. The stone is emphasized when it has micro-pave set diamonds encrusting the diamond. Another add-on you can do to really make your ring stand out is use a split shank setting. This ring will be all anyone can talk about!

Radiant Cut Set Diagonally

Just like the princess cut shaped diamond, the radiant cut looks like a different stone when it is flipped diagonally. The radiant cut looks like a princess cut, just with an elongated length. In other words a more rectangular princess cut. The great thing about this stone is the amount of facets! It really makes the ring stand out! Usually a radiant cut is set vertically. When the radiant cut diamond is set sideways (horizontally) it sort of appears like an emerald cut diamond, just with way more detail and facets. We love this look. A good additional is to put the diagonal stone into a three stone setting!

Sideways Pear Shaped Diamond

This style is for the funky-bride. This is a very non-traditional style that is either a hit or miss depending on your fashion sense. We have seen rough pear shaped diamond rings flipped sideways and we think it is such a unique, yet elegant look! We recommend a bezel setting or a pave setting to make your unique diamond shape emphasized.

Flipped Marquise Diamond

This is another not-so-traditional diamond shape when it is flipped. The traditional way to where a marquise cut diamond engagement ring is vertical. When it is flipped horizontally is has the “evil eye” look. We personally love it! Some great things to add to a sideways marquise diamond ring is gemstone details. This really adds some fun spunk to an engagement ring!

Trillion Cut Diamond

This is one of the lesser known diamond cuts that is really geometric and unique looking. It is called a trillion cut, but it is basically a triangular shaped diamond. Although this post is about 5 ways to make your diamond look unique, there is really nothing you can do to make this diamond shape look even more unique than it already is. Depending on which way you flip the stone it will still look great! Do some research on settings because the designs are endless for this style stone!
