Heart Shaped Engagement Rings – Romantic Styling

If you’re a big fan of heart shaped engagement rings, there are two clear choices. Include the heart shaped styling into the diamond, or include this within the setting. (Or both if you wish to go all-out!)

When it comes to the heart shaped diamond, we find an equal response. Half of the population adore the heart shape and an equal portion do not.

Most Romantic of Designs

It must be said that heart shaped engagement rings offer the most romantic possibilities for design. Let us first of all look at the possibilities for heart shaped stones.

Expect more of a subtle colour and a much higher cost with a pink diamond.

Natural pink diamonds are far more expensive than white diamonds. It will come as no surprise that rare natural fancy coloured diamonds demand much higher costs than white diamonds. As the intensity of colour increases so does the cost. Clarity is not such a consideration when it comes to natural coloured diamonds.

Selecting a white heart shaped diamond does not always ensure the same result. We are very careful when we select heart shape diamonds. The shape needs to be pleasing. A clearly defined shape is very important to ensure the chosen shape is noticeable. Smaller heart shaped diamonds can be obscured by details within the setting. For smaller heart shaped diamonds, choose the V claw to enhance the point of the stone and to help define the shape.

The Heart Shaped Diamond Solitaire Ring 

Single heart shaped diamonds remain the most popular way to showcase the heart shaped diamond. We often say less is more. Our previous paragraph also referenced the V claw to enhance the diamond shape. Aphrodite, shown below, blends simple styling features to create the perfect setting for the heart shaped brilliant cut diamond.
