The Perfect Diamond to Suit Your Personality

How does a Woman’s Personality affect Her Choice of Diamonds?

Is it true that outgoing personalities favour baguettes while quieter types prefer the timeless elegance of the brilliant cut? Different personalities prefer different diamond shapes – which can be extremely useful to know for men struggling to decide what engagement ring to choose!

In-depth knowledge of human psychology combined with experience working in the Australian diamond market has imbued me with an unparalleled appreciation of customer preferences.

Diamonds are cut in many fanciful forms including baguettes, pears, square, emerald cuts and many more. Among them, however, the classic is the round brilliant which originated in the first century BC and has enduring popularity. The round  is cut perfectly to transform the insignificant rough stone into a fiery, scintillating gemstone.

The most popular diamond is the brilliant cut, which is the traditional round diamond. This shape’s popularity transcends through generations and has always kept its classic appeal. Women who have a classic, elegant taste tend to prefer the round brilliant cut.Modern shapes such as princess, marquise or pear are more popular with women who don’t like the look of traditional round diamonds and want something unique yet exceptional at the same time.

Clues to the right choice are based on the special ladies personality and her taste in style and dress. The ladies who prefer the traditional look (nothing fancy) tend to like the simple solitaire white gold/yellow gold band with one beautiful set diamond. Whereas those who like more bling tend to go for solitaire with perfect diamond set on the shoulders of the setting.

Many men come to us questioning, what shape diamond should I buy? As we love the art of customising each engagement ring to suit the style of each lady and we understand the human psychology behind their ladies preferences, we believe it is critical to first understand their personality any other attributes which help us choose the perfect diamond that will epitomize them throughout their lifetime.

Here are a few guidelines that will help you understand and narrow down the choices when it comes to purchasing a diamond:
