You want your diamond engagement ring to be as sparkly as champagne! Let me share with you a modern twist on the classic halo engagement ring from Michael M’s Defined Collection. After closely following all the exciting trends in engagement ring designs from COUTURE in Las Vegas, that I featured in a recent Vogue article, I discovered that pear-shaped engagement rings are the hot ticket item for modern brides this season. And I think you’re going to like how Michael M has redefined this classic cut.
When it comes to sparkle, round brilliant cut diamonds will give you that extra razzle-dazzle. Designed for wearability and cut with the most possible facets to maximize its brilliance, a round brilliant diamond can outshine the best of them. It’s not surprising that half of all diamonds sold are traditional round brilliant diamonds. We love sparkle! My engagement ring is a cushion cut diamond, but I still have an appreciation for timeless round brilliant diamonds. The brilliant-cut was developed over six centuries ago and has 57 facets (58, if you include the culet). Radiant rounds are always a classic, but I am a big fan of nontraditional cuts, as I feel many of you are too.
The most popular cuts are round and pear, but Michael M combines both in one unique engagement ring! While the stones are more traditional, the setting is innovative as it encircles the center round brilliant diamond and transforms it into other lavish shapes. This ring is an avant-garde way of presenting the traditional round brilliant diamond into a unique modern pear shape. This ring is set with .75 carats and is shown with a 2 carat round center stone.
“Something that we struggled with for a long time is how to meet the needs of those people who enjoy the fancy shapes, but also give them something exciting, something different and allow them to still have the traditional. We wanted them to have both. The round diamond centre with elongated pear halo incredibly breaks out of the shape and makes the diamond appear enormous, but it also redefines the central stone so that’s why the actual collection you’re looking at is the redefined collection. It completely changes the way that the centre round brilliant looks.”
An engagement ring should look amazing from all angles and when you look at the intricate vintage detailing on the back, you can see this Michael M engagement ring truly is special from front to back. Michael M rings usually give you clean-cut lines, but these redefined engagement rings are a refreshing break away from tradition.
