Popular for their focus on the center stone, solitaire rings spotlight the cut and carat of the sole diamond on the band. A timeless and traditional favorite is a round diamond on a gold band, but modern designers have included intricate yet subtle details with this time-honored favorite. Solitaire rings can have a modest center stone or more hefty carats as the majority of your budget will be spent on the diamond with this type of setting. Beautiful and classic, these rings have been enjoyed for generations.
SIDE STONE RINGS
Added sparkle along the band with side stone rings sets the stage for the center stone to take the spotlight. The diamonds are usually set along the band with prongs or with a pavé setting. Channel and bezel settings are also possible features when choosing a side stone engagement ring. Classic round and princess cut diamonds are common side stone cuts, but any cut can grace the band to bring an enchanting yet subtle glimmer to the precious metal band.
Frame the center diamond with a fabulous halo, or circle of smaller diamonds, to emphasize the cut and facets with brilliant glamor. Halo rings have been a favorite with the most sought-after designers for years. This style continues to evolve with styles like the hidden halo and double and triple halos for incredible luxury and sparkle. Some halos lift the center stone onto its own platform that allows light to reflect off these incredible stones in full force.
THREE STONE RINGS
Sentimental and gorgeous, three stone rings are said to represent the past, present, and future of a couple’s relationship. Presenting your significant other with this ring that honors all the time you have, and will, spend together is a romantic symbol of your commitment. Traditionally the center stone is larger, with two smaller stones flanking on either side. Create a unified look with three stones of the same size, or choose different cuts for the stones on each side. Gemstones are a personal touch that you can add to this setting.
