Fall in Love With These Square Cut Engagement Rings
Get inspired by these amazing square cut engagement rings, which are sure to help you discover your dream ring in no time at all…
- Rose Gold
Rose gold remains a popular choice, for good reason. Romantic, feminine and rosy, this metal pairs especially well with diamond engagement rings. One of the most classic styles in square cut rings is the pave encrusted stone that is set to sparkle with maximum impact. While this style works in every metal, it is particularly pretty with a rose gold band that adds a soft contrast to the cool tone of the diamonds.
If you are not a huge jewellery fan, you will love this minimal, simple ring with a modern geometric touch. A solid band in yellow or rose gold, or even platinum, will add to the subtle beauty of this ring. The square cut diamond is set securely into the ring at an angle, with the delicate stones encrusted into the band adding a touch of sparkle in an elegant, understated way. This style is great for those who live active lives, as well as tomboys who don’t usually wear rings very often.
- Three Stone
Three stone rings are loaded with romantic symbolism. The stones are said to represent the past, present and future. The style works well with most cuts, but with the square cut, this ring truly shines. This ring is classic and sophisticated, with a look that will never date. Whether the band is platinum, yellow gold or rose gold, the ring is effortlessly stylish.
- Split Shank
Split band rings add impact in a way that is not over the top. The band is often encrusted with pave stones, which further add to its overall shape, size and sparkle. A coloured diamond or an unusual gem stone such as citrine, morganite or even opal can all add even more to this style of ring. Depending on how subtle or elaborate you wish the final ring to be, this makes the split shank a versatile style.
For a vintage style ring, aim for ornate details that add plenty of delicate touches. The square shape adds a perfectly balanced centre, which is surrounded by floral elements. While this ring works very well in a cool tone that creates an even flow between stone and band, it would also work well in any other metal.
- Princess Halo
For those who want to feel like royalty, nothing competes with the classic princess halo cut in platinum and diamond. This is the type of ring that not only sparkles to maximum effect, but also gets noticed. The square shape is perfect for halo, adding sophistication without losing the clean shape of the stone.
