It is true when they say a “Diamond lasts forever.” Here are some of the styles and settings that are most popular with today’s Engagement Rings.
Solitaire Engagement Rings
This is the best known, most traditional of the popular engagement rings. A single diamond on a plain band that signifies your love. The simplicity of this style is also a sign that the wearer is refined and sophisticated. Perfect for those who love and appreciate the simple things in life.
Side-Stone Engagement Rings
Many people like the focus of their engagement to be on the ring and not just the center diamond. A spectacular center diamond with slightly smaller diamonds each side gives the effect that the whole ring is sparkling rather than just the centerpiece. For those that like a ring that stands out a bit more then the side stone ring is the perfect choice.
Three-Stone settings Engagement Rings
The three-stone ring style is one of the most glamorous of the popular engagement rings. As the name implies, your ring has three matched diamonds as the centerpiece. Not only do these diamonds create a massive brilliance from your ring, but these matched diamonds represent your past, the present and your future, a marvelous way to start on the next chapter of your lives.
Gemstone Engagement Rings
For those that love color in their life then you can’t go past a gemstone engagement ring. Have your center diamond surround by gemstones like blue sapphires, red rubies or green emeralds for a stunning effect that certainly stands out.
Channel and Pave settings
Along with any of the styles mentioned above, one of the ways that you might personify your ring or make it a little more special is to add tiny diamonds in a pave or channel setting. Both settings have the effect of subtly enhancing the brilliance of your ring, without going to the lengths and expense of adding more large diamonds.
The effect of a pave setting is similar to cobblestones (or pave stones – hence the name) whereas the channel setting is slightly more subtle again as the small diamonds are set into a channel within the band.
The most important thing to remember when choosing your ring is not to just look at popular engagement rings, but to also think about the ring style that is perfect for your fiancé, you can even look at designing your own perfect ring, this way neither of you will be disappointed.
