As much as we love discovering the latest trends in engagement rings (we’re looking at you, unique settings and nontraditional stones), there’s something undeniably chic about having a ring with a truly timeless setting. Sure, you’ll never go wrong with a classic circle or oval shape, but if there’s one cut we’re eyeing at the moment, it’s the square engagement ring.
While the shape, typically seen in a princess or Asscher cut may have been out of the limelight as far as traditional engagement rings go, the square diamond will never go out of style, according to Anna Bario and Page Neal of Bario Neal.
“We love the simplicity of the square cut. The rise in the popularity of the princess cut seems to coincide with a larger design movement that values form over ornamentation,” they say. “The beauty of the rings with a princess cut lies in their minimalism and celebration of classic geometry.”
