 Examine Size and Shape

 

After you are done with the step above, the next step is for you to check the cut thoroughly. Make sure the form is accurate as per the setting. To avoid any hassles of cutting it with tools, which will require more skills and expertise to give it a furnished look which will end up taking a whole lot of your time, try selecting a stone that already has the perfect shape.

Select Matching Setting
 
After you are through with all the necessary cutting stuff, find a setting that is suitable. Now to be a bit more specific, be sure that the level of the stone is deep enough, and that it's touching the skin and resting firmly on its seat. Ensure that you don't pick a weak material or shape to reduce the risk of color fading and infections to sensitive skins.

Different Metals (rose gold or yellow gold)
 
When you are trying to design your own engagement ring little, this can often make a huge difference. Getting a small detail wrong can ruin the whole process for you, and leave wondering where you got it wrong.

Intertwined Bands with Different Shapes of Diamond (Custom or Round)
