Fancy Cut Diamonds should only be your choice if you know this is your spouse's favorite

Choosing the right diamond for an engagement ring can seem a daunting task. Sometimes it’s a good idea to do a bit of window shopping with your future spouse and get an idea of what she likes. If this isn’t an option then a round diamond is the safest bet. It is the most versatile cut, exhibits the most brilliance and can be used in most styles of engagement rings. One shouldn’t choose a fancy cut of diamond unless you know that this is your partner’s favorite.
Once you have settled on a shape, the best way to approach your purchase is to decide on a budget. Buying a diamond is like buying a car, generally you have a budget and then look at the various makes and models that fall within your budget. Don’t forget to allocate an amount for the ring and any smaller diamonds which may also be in there.
