Want to Save some Money?
I talk a lot about diamond deals, saving money on diamonds, and getting an engagement ring on a budget.
After all, I did write an entire book about it called: 101 Ways to Save Money on Diamonds!
But, out of every single way possible, there is still one way that totally blows all the others away…
And that’s SHAPE!
Very few people know this, but the shape of the diamond really matters greatly when it comes to the pocketbook.
For some diamond shapes are extremely expensive, and others, not so much!
In fact, the round diamond (called the modern brilliant cut), is by far the most expensive cut of diamond there is.
And that’s because it’s a traditional classic cut. It carries the most brilliance of any cut, and it’s the most popular.
Hence, the hefty price tag.
But if you just switch your style of thinking, think outside of the box (or in this case, round), then you’ll see that there are tons of other diamond shapes (called fancy cuts), that are way cheaper.
Most by 20-30% Cheaper!
Cuts like the princess cut, emerald cut, heart, pear, oval and marquise…
But still, none of these cuts compares to the CHEAPEST CUT of diamond…
For the cheapest diamond shape (cutting style) is actually the Cushion Cut!
The Cushion Cut is Cheaper!
Actually… the cushion cut is usually about HALF the price of a round diamond!
See below for a real example. These two diamonds are identical. Same carat weight (1.00), same clarity grade (SI1), same color (F), same certification (GIA), same symmetry and polish grades (excellent), and same fluorescence (none)…
It really is Mind-Boggling!
Now you know!
Cushion Cuts ROCK!
