So, you're thinking of making it official. Congratulations! There are many ways to symbolize the love you share. We'll help you explore your options and find the rings that suit you best.
Searching for the Perfect Engagement Ring is an intimidating task, that’s
why it's always best to get input from the bride. This is one of the most important
purchases you will make, and you need to keep several issues in mind when making
Knowing the terminology, such as the four Cs of diamond quality, as well as the basic differences between Settings, Shapes, and types of engagement rings will keep your search efficient.
Selecting a setting is a most important part when choosing a diamond engagement ring.
There are many different Engagement Ring Settings. Common settings include Solitaires and Bridal Sets, while Tension Settings, Three-Stone Rings, and other designs are becoming increasingly popular.
Diamond solitaires are a classic choice among engagement rings. By far the most
popular choice is the round brilliant, but each shape has its own special charm.
The round brilliant-cut best features a diamond's fire, sparkle and brilliance. The most common types of settings are channel, bezel, tension, pave, prongs, and tiffany.
Side stone settings include both a larger center stone as well as multiple small
stones that embellish the engagement ring band. Most accent stones are set in channels
to protect them from damage.
If you really want your engagement ring to shine, we have styles featuring generous center stones and plenty of supporting diamonds.
A truly romantic choice is the three-stone diamond ring, with three diamonds that symbolize your past, your present and your future together. Three-Stone rings mean that the stones are set in a straight line without additional accent stones.
A bridal set features a diamond engagement ring and a matching wedding band, which
may include diamonds or may be a simple gold band. The bands can be solid gold with
a matching solitaire engagement ring, or they might have side stone settings in
both the wedding band and the engagement ring, with the engagement ring also featuring
a prominent solitaire.
You and your partner complement each other perfectly, so why not choose wedding jewelry that does the same?
A setting technique for small diamonds in which the stones are set so closely together
that no metal shows.
Small stones encrusted along the ring’s surface give the illusion of a solid diamond surface rather than a metal band. Unlike channel or bezel settings, a pave setting uses only tiny prongs to hold each stone, minimizing the appearance of the metal while maximizing the illusion of free-standing diamonds.
Pave settings hold each stone individually with no rim of metal, therefore allowing more light into each individual stone.
