How Much Should I Spend on An Engagement Ring?

Proposing to the love of your life is a once in a lifetime experience. There is no experience quite like the moment when you lay your love on the line for someone you want to spend the rest of your life with.

Cushion Cut Engagement Rings Eye Candy

The cushion cut diamond evolved from the old mine cut diamond, but is today’s second most popular diamond cut. This gorgeous look combines a square cut (like princess or radiant) with rounded corners, giving it the look of, well – a cushion. This stunning shape popped onto the diamond scene about 200 years ago, and was the go-to diamond shape for its first 100 years of existence.

One of my favorite engagement ring companies, Uneek, is right on top of this trend. They created gorgeous two tone halos and Read More →

True, one with the wrong cut will get “the bow tie” effect, where the center of the diamond’s facets look dark, like a black bow tie. But for the most part they’re lovely. It’s a very unique shape you don’t see that often anymore (they were basically the cushion cuts of the 70’s and 80’s though) making it perfect for the bride who wants something different. They’re also one of the shapes that appears larger than their carat weight, thanks Read More →
