Unconventional Engagement Ring Shapes
While you never know what you’ll find with our collection of unique vintage engagement rings, here are a few popular shapes to look for:
- Cushion Cuts. The cushion shape is easy to spot—and not just because of the size of the stone! A square with rounded corners, the cushion cut diamond shape looks like a plush pillow. Make yourself comfortable!
- Pear Cut Diamonds. Also called teardrop diamonds, pear cut diamonds are always a great choice. Because of their size, pear diamonds do well on their own or with other smaller stones. They often make for an unforgettable ring!
- Marquise Diamonds. Also called the “Navette” diamond, or “little boat” because of its shape, marquise diamonds feature a low pointed oval, generally made up of 58 facets! This is truly a unique shape that works well with smaller petite diamonds or large, bold and unconventional diamond engagement rings!
- Heart-Shaped Diamonds. While these diamonds are especially popular as Valentine’s gifts, the heart-shaped diamond has a long history with engagement rings as well, dating back to the 15th century! Valued highly as a difficult cut, the heart-shaped diamond was a popular gift among royalty before becoming a recognized symbol of undying love!
- Cocktail Rings. Especially popular in 1920s fashion, vintage cocktail rings are perfect for unique shapes and bold designs. They make for wonderfully unconventional engagement rings, too!
