If you want to create a unique engagement ring, it is a good idea to shop at a jewelry store that offers loose diamonds. By starting with a loose diamond, it gives you the opportunity to select your diamond independently from the style and metal used in the ring. Once you find a stone that meets your quality standards and personal preference, you can work with your jeweler to customize a ring or pick from a large selection of pre-designed ring settings.
Another advantage is that it is easier to assess its quality than a set diamond as the prongs of the setting can obscure flaws and make it harder to judge the color. When assessing a loose diamond, your eye is not distracted by the metal or design of the ring and allows you to just focus on the beauty of the stone. Also if you know you are interested in a particular diamond shape such as round brilliant, princess, cushion, oval, emerald, etc., you can easily select that shape in the carat weight and quality of cut, color and clarity you want.
