Engagement Ring Settings Static
Introduction to Engagement Ring Settings
Choosing an engagement ring setting is an exciting decision to begin the next chapter of your life. The options are endless, offering the perfect design for every bride. The setting is one of the most important parts of the ring as it determines the silhouette of the ring itself. Accent stones set in prong, pave, or channel can maximize the vibrance of your ring, while symbolic settings may call more to you and your love story. In choosing your setting, select the setting that calls most to your heart.
Solitaire rings have remained the most popular setting for decades because of the timeless style. The standalone diamond in this setting is perfect for a confident but traditional bride. Versatility of the solitaire setting has inspired designers to define their rings with hidden diamond detailing and intricate metalwork to dazzle in any carat. The metal can be customized to your preference, whether you elect for the favored white and yellow gold, or choose the increasingly desired shimmering durable platinum.
Side Stone Rings
Side stone rings feature smaller stones set delicately across the shank that glamorously frame the center stone. These rings dazzle in any setting, from pave to channel, symmetrically catching the light from all angles. While side stone rings are just as versatile in any cut, princess and emerald cuts are a premiere choice for the center stone. Side stone rings are also known for their seamless inclusion of intricate detailing to take the elegance of the ring to the next level.
Halo rings showcase the center stones encircling the gemstone of choice. Halos are popular because of the balance they can bring to the cut and carat of the center stone, softening sharper cuts such as a cushion diamond and increasing the appearance of any carat. For those who prefer a more subtle elegance, the hidden halo introduces the amplified sparkle while keeping all eyes on the center stone, with the halo only visible from the side view of the ring. The mirage of brilliant diamonds in a halo ring is nothing short of sensational.
Three Stone Rings
Three stone rings embody the shine of your love’s past, present and future and are often referred to as the trilogy ring for this reason. Two stones of the same or smaller size flank the center stone to increase the brilliance of the ring. In choosing this style of engagement ring, one can customize beautifully through the shape of the stones. Round stones evoke a feminine sophistication, while elongated stones, such as a teardrop diamond, increase the reflective surface area for more sparkle. Baguette diamonds are an excellent choice for the side stones to finish off this coveted style.
