PRINCESS/MARQUISE CUT: Vintage-inspired styles still reign supreme in this wedding season, with heavy emphasis on princess and marquise cuts. Fun fact: Marquise cut diamonds originated with the French Monarchy in 1745. Anything that originated in France can do no wrong, am I right?!

HALOS: Halos have been a staple for several years now, what with their romantic, vintage-inspired look and the simple way the halo creates the illusion of a larger center stone. It’s really no wonder why they’re so popular among brides!
