Women who choose a round engagement ring love tradition – but this doesn’t mean that you’re boring! These women love a classic and know that a simple round stone will stand the test of time. From an elegant gown to a t-shirt and jeans, this timeless piece will go with pretty much anything and will never come off your finger (even when on vacay in that teeny bikini!)

The name says it all. A square ring will make a statement with sharp angular lines and also emit a ton of sparkle. The woman who chooses a princess cut engagement ring loves pretty and girly things, but she isn’t sugary sweet. She is traditional with a flirty edge and a slight bad-girl vibe.

The cushion cut is somewhere between a round and princess cut stone. Needless to say, the woman who wears one appreciates tradition but wants to add her own fashionable twist.

Her style is understated glam – she pairs classic clothing pieces with sparkly statement accessories.

A newer style of engagement ring, the oval cut is just as sparkly as a round, brilliant cut but has a little unique edge with its elongated shape. They’re a great choice for a petite bride who wants something to elongate her fingers. This woman loves to find new ways to rework classic pieces – like pairing a pencil skirt with a vintage tee.

The woman who craves a pear shaped stone really wants to set herself apart.

Barn party with craft beer, anybody?

As the name suggests, a radiant cut stone really sparkles and shines. This shape and cut is made for the woman who has a big personality and really wants to stand out.

As is anyone’s guess, the woman who chooses a heart shaped engagement ring is the ultimate romantic.

She is lead by her emotions and her relationship is a high priority in her life.

A marquise shaped wedding ring is another unique stone that strays from the classic, so the woman who chooses one definitely wants to stand out. Because of its long and slim shape, your ring will appear larger than a round or square stone with the same carat weight. The tapered points also emit a sleek and sexy vibe. This woman has a flair for drama and will most definitely be posting her ring on Instagram the second she receives it.
You are: dramatic, outgoing, sexy
Wear it with: a super-fitted sheer and lace gown
