We have all heard the saying that a 'diamond is forever,' but there are so many ways that your diamond can be a part of your engagement ring. Here is a quick list of some of the more popular engagement rings and how they affect the look and feel of your ring.
This is by far the best known of the famous engagement rings. A single diamond on a plain band signifies the purity of your love. The simplicity of this style is also a sign that the wearer is refined and sophisticated. Perfect for those who love and appreciated the simple things in life.
Many people like the focus on their engagement to be in 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 a perfect choice.
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 the next chapter of your lives.
For those that love the color in their life then you can't go past a gemstone engagement ring. Have your center diamond surrounded by gemstones like blue sapphires, red rubies or green emeralds for a stunning effect that certainly stands out.
Modern engagement ring styles are stylishly simple with the focus being on how the diamond is set into the band. Bezel and tension settings along with split swirled and twisted bands create a modern and unique look for any style of the ring from the solitaire to the three stone making them very popular engagement rings.
Unlike many styles which have come and go, these rings have maintained their popularity over the years. This is because the unique spiral designs, the intricate knot-work and the history of the ancient Celts personify these rings. Perfect for those who love that history or who have a taste for the mystical.
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 paving 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.
