Getting engaged to a person with whom you want to spend the rest of life is, of course, a beautiful feeling. Proposals are memorable events for every couple and they are filled with heightened emotions and a strong sense of responsibility. The way your partner proposes to you can say a lot about you, him/her, and your relationship. Also, the engagement ring can hint a lot more than you think about your love life. To find out the truth, we dug into the matter a little deeper and found out that everything about your engagement ring has a bigger meaning! The stone, the cut, the shape, and the design of your engagement ring can say a lot about your relationship with your bae.

Your engagement ring is something that’s very special to you and you’re definitely going to treasure it for the rest of your life. Hence we feel that every person who chooses or wears an engagement ring should know more about the meaning of their ring. In this article, we will differentiate the different types of engagement rings based on their cut and tell you what they represent.

The groom who purchases this ring for his beloved “princess” is deeply caring and very thoughtful when it comes to his relationship. He is willing to do anything and everything to make his partner happy and might even spoil her a little with all the pampering. Every girl who is wearing a princess cut ring is lucky beyond words to have a partner who loves them so intensely.

4. Pear Cut

The pear cut makes the stone look like a tear-drop. It is a beautiful cut and yet, it is one of the least popular ones. This is probably because the people who wear this ring are quite unique and they love to walk in the path that they’ve made rather than follow someone else’s trails. These women have high standards and are very ambitious in nature.

Worn by: Victoria Beckham, Jessica Simpson, Princess Charlene of Monaco, Elisha Cuthbert, and Katherine Heigl

5. Marquise Cut

Also known as the “navette” cut (which means “little boat” in French), this is a very attractive cut. It gives the stone an almost oval shape with two pointy ends. The couple who choose this ring like an elegant and fancy life. They like unique things and have a very different taste when it comes to decorating their place and choosing activities to do together.

Worn by: Christina Milian, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Portia de Rossi, and Ashlee Simpson

6. Heart Cut
