Unique Marquise with a Twist
Like with almost every other ‘80s trend to come back, the marquise cut is experiencing a resurgence from fresh designs with vintage appeal. This “old school” style can look entirely modern when jewelry designers add a modern twist to the classic (like this multi-stone art deco look). Marquise cut also features the longest diamond shape for a given carat weight, allowing extra length to enhance the appearance of the diamonds’ size when worn on the hand.

The Pavé Setting
The pavé setting, pronounced “pa-vay,” comes from the French word “to pave,” meaning paved with diamonds. Diamonds are said to be pavé-set together when they are as small as .01-.02 carats, creating a continuous sparkle effect.

Raw Diamond Rings
A raw diamond is an uncut stone that has not been shaped or polished in any way. As these stones are in their most natural form, they look cloudy with inclusions, which give each stone a lot more personality. Raw diamond rings are a stunning option for brides who prefer something unique, in its most natural appearance, and totally one-of-a-kind.

Salt and Pepper
Salt and pepper refers to diamonds with a mix of black and white inclusions, giving the stone a speckled look. Although this ring doesn’t sparkle as much as a traditional pure white diamond, it offers a unique charm that many brides are in love with.
