F&L's Guide

The terms shape and cut are two very different and independent elements in the design of an engagement ring. However they must work in unison to create that spectacular sparkle and shine most brides dream of. The cut is critical as this is what gives a diamond its signature glamorous appeal. An engagement ring shape is equally important and will directly affect the overall look of the ring.
