Which Engagement Ring Shape Looks the Biggest? Unraveling the Illusion of Size 💍💎

When it comes to choosing an engagement ring, size often plays a significant role in making a dazzling impression. While the carat weight of the diamond is a crucial factor, the shape of the diamond also plays a vital role in how large it appears on the finger. If you're looking to create the illusion of a bigger diamond without necessarily increasing the carat weight, this blog is your ultimate guide to choosing the engagement ring shape that gives the appearance of magnificent size and sparkle!

Brilliant Round: Timeless Elegance with Maximum Brilliance

The round brilliant diamond is the undisputed champion when it comes to creating the illusion of a bigger stone. With its 58 facets, it's designed to maximize brilliance, creating a dazzling display of light that captures attention from every angle. Due to its exceptional cut, a round diamond appears larger than other shapes of the same carat weight.

Additionally, oval-cut diamonds are known for their ability to elongate the fingers, making them a popular choice among many brides-to-be.
