Diamonds and gemstones are treasures in themselves, but the unique thing about engagement ring settings is that they’re forms of artwork that designers use to express their aesthetic grace. The exceptional beauty of each setting style is apparent, but each setting has its own power that sets it apart from the others. Here at Albert’s Diamond Jewelers, we’ve made it our business to understand the brilliance of bridal jewelry, and we strive to help our customers to know the best engagement ring to match their personal sense of style.
Three Stone Engagement Rings
The three stone engagement ring
is distinguished by an appreciation for unique diamond cuts. This style utilizes two midsize jewels to complement the center stone, and the effect is nothing short of breathtaking. Rare stone shapes like trilliant or chevron cuts can be used to great effect in this style, and many designers opt for elegantly colored stones like tanzanite or sapphire as a color accent. As a symbol, three stone engagement rings can be a remarkable thing, symbolizing triads like a couple’s past, present, and future.
Solitaire Engagement Rings
The solitaire ring is one that is ideal when a woman wants to show off a particular jewel. Whether you’ve chosen the neoclassical cool of the bezel, pronged, or the ultramodern tension setting, the solitaire engagement ring
shows off that stone perfectly. When you’re looking to show off, for example, a big glittery diamond without distraction—or you’ve got something special about your center stone that you want to celebrate without distraction, you may appreciate the solitaire ring.
Halo Engagement Rings
On the other hand, if you’ve got a center stone that you want to surround with even more glitz, the Art Deco excellence of the halo ring is one of the best engagement ring settings for you. As mentioned, the halo ring is a vintage style made to surround a stone with jewels, but with abstractly shaped halos, lacy halos, or floral halos, it can be a delightful choice for the modern woman. Pick a halo ring if you’re looking to add at least a carat weight to the visual size of your preferred diamond.
Side Stone Engagement Rings
Side stone rings
are similar to the halo style insofar as they utilize many stones to accentuate the center diamond. But rather than placing them in a hoop of jewels, they’re worked into the shank of the engagement ring. Because the shank itself can be designed in a thousand different ways, there are just as many ways of working them into a designer ring. If you’re partial to colored gems, such as pink or yellow diamonds or sapphires, this style sets them in a gorgeous, unique manner.
Cluster Engagement Rings
Rarer than other styles, the cluster ring is typified by utilizing several sizes of diamond (or other colored gem) rather than a center stone. Like the three stone ring, this type of ring is ideal for its symbolic value. Like the side stone ring, it is also ideal for showing off different types of gem. Say, for example, you want to show off your birthstone and your husband’s, you can have them alongside diamonds at the heart of a cluster ring. While slightly rare, if you have a passion for this style, it’s best to talk to our team to have it custom designed for you!
