Here is an overview of the rings and diamond shapes Monahan has to offer and how to choose the right one for the special woman in your life.

The round brilliant is often considered the most popular cut for engagement rings. Monahan offers a variety of elegant engagement rings to complement round brilliant diamonds. The round brilliant usually has about 58 facets. It is versatile enough to work with most ring styles. This diamond cut is a direct descendent of the “old mine cut,” which first gained popularity in the seventeenth century. Due to its long history and ideal cut proportions, the round brilliant is the most classic choice for engagement rings. If your bride-to-be loves an elegant yet traditional style, then this is the best choice. This is also a safe bet for men who don’t quite know what to choose. It’s hard to go wrong with a classic.

Princess cut diamonds are quickly becoming another popular choice for engagement rings, and Monahan Jewelers offers a beautiful selection of distinctive princess cut diamond engagement rings in Jacksonville, FL. A princess cut diamond is typically square or rectangle shaped. It can have anywhere from 57-76 facets. This cut works well for women with long fingers. First popularized in the 1960’s, this style of diamond is a dazzling choice for men who want to demonstrate their lifelong commitment to love. True to its name, princess cut diamonds are best-suited for women who like to be treated like royalty.

The rectangular emerald diamond is an unforgiving step cut diamond that demands perfection. The emerald cut usually has about 57 facets. The rectangular shape is known for elongating the look of shorter fingers. The cut takes its name from the emerald stone, and, for some, it still holds the meaning associated with emeralds–love, hope, wisdom, and reason. Bold and assertive women are often attracted to this type of ring.

Marquise cut diamonds are oval shaped with pointed ends. They are also known as “navette” which means “little boat”. The marquise typically has about 58 facets. Its shape also helps to elongate fingers. According to legend, Louis XV commissioned the marquise diamond. It was supposedly modeled after the mouth of his famous mistress, Madame de Pompadour. The marquise is best-suited for a modern women who are looking for something a little different. Unconventional and creative women are drawn to the marquise cut. If you think this type of diamond is right for your bride, the experts at Monahan Jewelers can help you find the perfect diamond engagement rings in Jacksonville, FL.

The teardrop shape of the pear cut diamond blends the classic look of the round brilliant with the unconventional style of the marquise. This cut has between 56 to 58 facets. The first pear shaped diamond was created by a Flemish diamond cutter, Lodewyk van Berquem. Van Berquem’s work actually led to diamonds being used in jewelry. The woman who favors a pear cut diamond is unique yet romantic. The princess and round brilliant are too traditional for her, but she still wants a feminine shape. Monahan Jewelers has a great selection of engagement rings that provide the right balance of romance and femininity to please this type of bride.
