The way to shop 2 carat cushion cut diamond for your engagement ring

No doubt that an engagement proposal is a special and wonderful moment for each and everyone of us. There are so many factors you need to take in consideration in order to shop the perfect ring and that is why we prepared for you some great tips that will help you make the right choice.


  1. Consider which shape you or your partner will love

There are many attractive and elegant diamond shapes out there for you to choose from, and that’s why you should think carefully which shape will suit you or the love of your life best, before you make the big purchase. Choosing a geometric shape will have an impact on the ring itself, for example a 2 carat cushion cut diamond has a square shape and the ring setting will need to be customized according to it. 

  1. Choosing the perfect metal

An engagement ring that makes a real statement needs the main stone to have a connection (by design, shape or color) to the ring itself. The type of metal is also really important and you can choose from yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, silver or even platinum. Once you know your diamonds size, shape and clarity/ color grade you can match the perfect metal to it. 

  1.   Proportions

As we all know, diamonds come in different sizes, and the variety is endless. Choosing the right size to the stone is all about personal taste, and while some ladies will prefer a massive rock that has stunning sparkle to it, others will prefer a modest one. We can see a trend that puts the 2 carat size diamond in a very popular spot. The main reason for that is because this size is not to big neither to small and can really match to any type of ring. 

  1.   Knowing your budget

A proposal can actually be quite expensive, and therefore you should think about budgeting. Besides the fact that purchasing an engagement ring is a large expanse, remember that you also need to spend money on the proposal itself, meaning the location, props, etc.

Once you know your exact budget, you will be able to look for the ring and the venue in a relaxed and organized way, and not get in to a situation that you find your self all over the place and stressed over your finances. 

  1.   Write everything on paper

Creating a list with everything you want and need is the right way to make sure you aren’t wasting your time. A perfect proposal needs enough time to plan it ahead and to that putting everything down on a piece of paper will make sure you don’t have any unexpected surprises. 

Bottom line is you need to first choose the perfect ring, as your partner will be wearing it for a lifetime. We welcome you to look at our latest designs here at Brooklynlilly – take special notice of the two carat options we have.
