If you’re an out-of-the-box bride…
If you’re a fashion lover with a unique sense of style, a heart-cut diamond just might be your match. Flaunt your forever crush with this statement-maker.


If you’re endlessly elegant…
The marquise diamond, whose elongated cut is designed to make any stone look larger than it is, is for those who love glamour and opulence. It’s undoubtedly eye-catching!


If you’re oh-so-sophisticated…
You’re a classic girl with a contemporary edge. Opt for a shimmering oval cut diamond—a more modern take on the timeless round cut.


If you’re a little rebellious…
Do you play by your own rules? The unusually shaped pear cut diamond, also known as the teardrop, is fit for a decidedly independent individual!


Whatever your style, you’ll find a diamond shape to suit it at Zales!
