Getting married is a big commitment and making the proposal is an important moment. Yet, before that even takes place, you are scouring all jewellery retailers or designing your own ring. Then there is the stress of whether or not she will like her ring. However, there is a simpler way to decipher what ring your beloved will adore (without giving it away). That is to decide based on her personality. It has been discovered that there is a link between the type a cut a woman chooses and her own unique traits.
If any of these ring true of your one and only, you should think of looking into it further. Perhaps nonchalantly let her linger at the jewellery store window and ask what has caught her attention. If any of your friends are engaged or married, gauge what she feels about their styles of rings. The best tip is not to be afraid of choosing the bold choice, as the ring is a symbol of your love as well.
The round cut is a very traditional and timeless shape. It matches any article of clothing and is for the girl who is elegant, classic and conservative. The classic & timeless style of this shape sparkles like no other. Perfect for the bride who favors quiet elegance and traditional romance. Round brilliant cuts are very popular and account for the majority of diamond engagement ring center shapes. They are distinguished by their 58 facets and a 360-degree symmetrical shape.
The cushion is another antique cut, similar to the square. It suits a fine woman, who is fashionable and romantic. For a lady with an old soul.A cushion shaped stone will have a square-rectangular cut with rounded corners & large facets that will enhance the brilliance of the stone. This antique style cut has a classic, romantic appeal, and is also known as “pillow-cut” diamonds.
The princess cut is a classic square shape, yet it still appeals to the modern woman. This for the girl is classy and traditional, yet energetic and bubbly. A princess cut diamond is square on the top, features four beveled sides and comes in at a point (like an upside-down pyramid) beneath the shiny surface of the ring. If you want maximum sparkle in a modern design, this is the ring cut for you. The clean lines keep the ring looking contemporary.
The heart cut is coming back into fashion in 2015, as an everlasting symbol of love. It best suits a woman who exudes youthfulness, sentimentality, creativity and who is an idealist. Perhaps the sweetest of all ring cuts, rocking a heart-shaped engagement ring is a bold choice. This is definitely not an engagement ring cut you see everyday, and the women who gravitate toward it tend to stand out in a crowd.
Similar to the emerald cut, only square. This style was popular in the roaring 1920’s. It is most suited to the woman who is unique, elegant, feminine and dramatic. Asscher cuts have an old world sophistication. Women who love antiques and unique designs tend to gravitate more toward Asscher cuts for their retro look,” she says.

Its oval shape meets in pointed ends, resembling the hull of a ship — this cut is also known as the Navette cut (meaning “little boat” in French).

The pear is a modified Marquise and is an equally bold cut. This is for a unique, fun and adventurous, loving woman. Someone who is an icon of beauty. Shaped like a tear (of joy), the pear cut gives the finger an elongated look. It’s one of the least common engagement ring cuts.

“So nice! I recommend you to everyone!”
“Honest people. Nice and patient. Most important, they didn’t try to “up=sell” me… not pushy. Treated me like a millionaire and never made me feel bad that I have a small budget.”
“I am so impressed with the Goldsmith- Tom. He repaired my ring and it looks better than it did when it was new (and it’s 20 years old!) WOW! GREAT JOB!”
“I have had two great experiences at Malloves recently. I am getting married this year and had shopped around at a few other places for an engagement ring and wedding band before coming to Malloves. The experience we had at Malloves far exceeded the other places where we had shopped. Everyone is super friendly and helpful and they were willing to go out of the way to find something for us that we loved. Most importantly, they were not pushy at all, which is such a breath of fresh air! Thank you Malloves! :)”
“For over forty years I have received outstanding smiles and service!!! They’re like family- we talk sports ( Red Sox/Yankees) of course, school, children, etc. “

“Everyone is always so nice to me when I come in! Love your store!”
“Nice People. Cool Stuff.”
“I can’t believe the gift section! It’s enormous and items from $5 and up! And Jewelry from $9… I love the Viva Beads!”
“This is one of the few jewelry stores that makes you feel at home as soon as you walk in. While the salespeople do not jump on you when you first walk in they do acknowledge you. You have a chance to look around without feeling that you are being pressured. They stand behind their products 100%. I returned an item that was purchased almost a year ago, and when it broke they replaced it free of charge and with out any hassle. I have and will continue to recommend people shop their when they are looking for a nice piece of jewelry.”
“I went to shop for an engagement ring and I left with a lot of knowledge and they never pressured me at all…”

“Store is much bigger than it looks. Wish I knew there was free parking in back, but otherwise it was a good experience!”
“I paid a little more for the ring my fiance wants at your store. It was cheaper on-line. But once I factored in that you guys do the appraisal, sizing, setting and repairs in your store, plus warranty it, AND I believe in supporting local business, it’s a no brainer to shop with you guys! Thanks Marc!”
“Very patient and nice people. I am truly impressed!”
“I wouldn’t shop at another jewelry store because the employees at Malloves are so nice and helpful. I LOVE going there!!”
“I only go to your store. The staff is so nice. The repair department is the best around! I trusted them with my grandma’s diamond ring and they repaired it beautifully!”
“The mall jewelry store charges $15 to clean my Pandora Bracelet. Malloves does it for FREE! Even if it’s not from their store! I will NEVER go anywhere else for my Pandora!”
“Thank you so much to Carey and the Malloves Team. She was able to beautifully reset and turn a family heirloom into a 5 year anniversary gift for my wife. Throughout the process, Carey was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and informative. Once it’s time to buy my wife a ‘push present’, Carey will be my first and only call.”
“After weeks of looking at various stones and settings for an engagement ring at the national chain stores and other out-of-town jeweler stores, my fiance, Helen, and I decided to look closer to home. One Saturday a couple of weeks ago, we were downtown doing some errands when we passed by your store. I asked Helen if she would like to take a look to see what you had. She said yes and that is when we met Pooja and Carey and when Malloves became our jeweler. Sometimes you just don’t know what’s in your own backyard. Our experience from start-to-finish was amazing. The ladies were very attentive, but not pushy; they were friendly but not phony and best of all, they were quite professional. There was one diamond that Helen was very taken with but we decided to “think about it.” About ten minutes later while driving down Route 9, Helen turned to me and said, “I want that diamond.” We returned immediately to the store where we were met like old friends. The stone we purchased from your store was amazing and it did enhance our setting. Our setting had special meaning for both us so the ring that Tom fashioned for us instantly became a family heirloom. Thank you Pooja and Carey you are exceptional representatives of Malloves. And thank you Tom for your skillful and creative work. Thank you Malloves for a very special buying experience. “
“This store is wonderful. The staff is wonderful. I wouldn’t shop anywhere else.”
“Christine took so much time with me to help design the ring of my dreams! I am VERY particular and she was so patient! Malloves made my 10 anniversary so special! Thank you.”
“Carey and the rest of the staff are great. They’ve done good work on my fiancee’s ring and customer service has always been excellent. I can’t recommend them highly enough.”
“Shopping at Malloves is a pleasure! Mark, Christine, and the Malloves team are some of the most wonderful, most friendly people I have ever dealt with!”
