Diamond engagement rings are one of the few items of jewelry that improve in value and beauty over time as a couple's relationship develops. They not only symbolize the excitement of the start of a couple's adventure, but they also become a woman's everyday look. An engagement ring may be anything from a basic diamond design to an ornate style, but no matter what it looks like, it is certain to carry tales and memories from your life.
There are numerous design aspects to consider while choosing the ideal ring setting style. Consider the most popular design aspects today, as well as those that are appropriate for her style and personality. Learn about the various settings for your center gemstone, accent gemstone, band, and finishing touches.
Vintage Inspired Rings
A vintage-inspired ring is an excellent choice for anybody who appreciates complexity and detail, and there is no greater source of inspiration than going back in time, when artisans used antique equipment and techniques to make decorations for virtually every square millimeter of a piece of jewelry. We like history and are enthralled by antique handcrafted jewelry. A major problem with real vintage jewelry is that many of them are in poor condition due to metal's tendency to lose structure and thin down over time. Although replicating antique inspired jewelry can be time consuming, we believe it is well worth the effort due to how unique and lovely it is.
Nature Inspired Rings
We enjoy being in nature and believe there is no greater design than that of nature. We've designed a full line of engagement rings inspired by aspects of the environment, including leaf detailing, bark texture, naturally twisted bands and sculptural forms, for individuals who share this passion and want a miniature souvenir to remind them of our wonderful planet.
Scalloped Pavé Diamond Rings
Scalloped pavé diamonds are popular among ladies. This design has circular cuts on the band's sides to reduce the quantity of exposed precious metal and produce a pure shimmer impression.
French Pavé Diamond Rings
The term "French pavé" refers to a technique for placing accent diamonds that maximizes the amount of light that strikes them from the sides, therefore enhancing their radiance. The metal in a French pavé setting produces a "fishtail," or a tiny U or V shape beneath each diamond, revealing the gems' sides.
Modern rings take inspiration from both modern architecture's stylish, bold forms and contemporary art's dynamic energy. They take on a sculptural character that elevates the stone from a single gleaming accent to the focal point of a captivating, ultra-sleek, completely finished, and breathtakingly wearable design. Simple solitaires, bezel or other basic settings, knife edge and tapered bands, and an off-kilter stone orientation are all common features of modern rings.
For the woman who prefers simplicity and a tried-and-true style, classic engagement rings include timeless designs and conventional shapes. Classic designs are generally associated with clean band lines, tight or delicate pavé embellishments, and diamond solitaires, occasionally flanked to give a three-stone appearance. When combined with plain bands, emerald and other step cut diamonds give classic engagement rings a traditional flare.
