1. top choice – emerald cut
If you’ve opted for an emerald cut diamond with its elongated, rectangular shape and chiselled step cuts you’re in good company.
Celebrities including Victoria Beckham, Beyoncé, The Duchess of Sussex and Jennifer Lawrence all sport emerald cut diamond engagement rings.
2. second best – oval cut
Oval cuts have all the brilliance of a round cut diamond but a more unique shape so it’s no wonder they get the coveted second place in the most Instagrammable engagement rings table.
Celebrity wearers include Blake Lively, Kourtney Kardashian (who managed to break hers!) and Hailey Bieber.
