Which Diamond shape is the most sought after?

What is the most affordable diamond shape?

The prices show that the emerald cuts are the least expensive quality for quality. However, the emerald cut is usually sought after in higher quality grades because of its window-like appearance. The emerald, oval, Asscher, princess and cushion cut diamonds will be less expensive because of the weight retention in cutting these shapes, but the loss of sparkle in comparison to the round diamond creates less demand for them.

Celebrate Color with Ruby or Sapphire Eternity Bands

For those trend forward brides who lean towards options, they're looking less for the traditional solitaire or wedding band and looking for more color with different gemstones, or even an unusual eternity band.  These two trends make the Tacori new Ruby and Sapphire Eternity bands exceptionally attractive. You get a major lux look that's totally unique and versatile enough to build a power ring stack, without the big price of diamonds. 

When Tacori posted this Sapphire eternity band on Instagram last year, it instantly became their most viral ring of the year. And then when they posted the Ruby and Sapphire ring later in December, their website search traffic for "Ruby" increased by more than 300%!  This isn't yet a mainstream look, which is why we expect to see celebrating color with rubies and sapphire eternity bands begin to emerge big in 2019.

 All of the Tacori RoyalT bands are available with Sapphires, Rubies, or Diamonds. The choice is yours.
