Have you been looking for the best design or cut for your wedding or engagement ring? You must have seen so many types of shapes available in the market however there are only a few diamond cut types that are most suitable for such occasions and are mostly chosen or made because of that reason. Diamond cut types have their own special attributes which will either be an advantage on your part or not. So to help you decide on which diamond cut type to use, I will be introducing top diamond cut types of engagement and wedding rings.

Two of the best diamond cut types are the emerald cut diamond ring and the princess cut diamond engagement rings. These two diamond cut types have some similarities and have their own benefits.

One of the most rectangular shaped diamond rings are emerald cut rings. They resemble marquise in some ways since both are best worn by women with longer fingers. You can choose an emerald ring placed in line with the wedding band or with your fingers.

Emerald utilizes the step-cut design for its edges. This attribute creates more reflection on the diamond ring which means the its beauty is more enhanced. Its surface is made more visible thus showing off the rings clarity. Its shape also makes it heavier than its original size. For those who are getting married, you might want to buy this type of ring if you wanted to buy a more affordable ring that can look expensive at the same time.

Next is the princess cut diamond engagement rings. It is somehow similar to emerald since it is somehow rectangular and or square in shape. It does have a plane top surface and a step-cut design edge just like emerald.

Jewelers either shows if off as a single stone or they also add few other stones around it which is also good on princess cut diamond rings.

Because of its shape, princess cut diamond rings appear bright and sparkling compared to other diamond cut. The type of ring is said to be one of the most attractive ring.

How large is a 0.75 carat princess cut diamond?

I am trying to buy a diamond engagement ring online but I have no visual as to how big the centre diamond is. I can’t decide if I should upgrade to a 1ct centre, or if 0.75 is big enough. So my question is how big, in mm or inches, is the average diameter of a 0.75 carat PRINCESS cut diamond (I realize there is some variation). I just want a general idea. If you know how much bigger a 1 carat is too that would be great!

It really depends on how the stone is cut. I poorly cut 0.75 carat diamond will look larger on the top (one that is just cut to look bigger), but it won’t have nearly as much sparkle as a properly cut diamond that has a properly proportioned table and depth.

The best way to get a visual of the size of diamonds when looking on line is to get a good ruler and bank piece of paper out. When you look at a site like, when looking at a specific diamond if give you the actual mm dimensions of each diamond. So use your ruler to carefully draw the square shape so you can see how large that would look.

I suggest you buy for the quality of cut, not how big it will look in the setting. If you buy a diamond that is cut to look larger, it won’t reflect light properly and it will be a dud. A properly “excellent” grade cut diamond will reflect nearly all light that enters it, make it sparkle like crazy! They are truly stunning attention cutters.

A 0.75 carat diamond that is cut poorly just to look closer to 1 carat might look a bit bigger on your finger, but it’s not going to bouncing light across the room like a smaller, but better quality cut diamond would.

Best Wishes!
