2 Easy Steps for Selecting the Right Engagement Rings
Each engagement ring is composed of two parts: a center diamond and a gold ring setting.
1. Choose the center diamond by using the 4 c’s according to your budget. The size of the center diamond will determine the various suitable ring settings that would complement the center diamond.
2. Choose the ring setting you wish. The settings are grouped into 3 main categories:
This is the most popular engagement ring setting. The prongs position set the diamond in the center of the ring to catch the most light. A four-prong setting shows a bit more diamond, while a six-prong setting offers a greater sense of security. However, a six-prong setting is not recommended if the center diamond is not big enough.
Rings with Sidestones
A setting with diamonds or gemstones paralleled on each side of the center stone, adds additional sparkles or colors. The number of side stones may enumerate from 2 diamonds on each side of the center diamond or and additional number of diamonds which are set all around the entire ring shank which is widely known as an eternity ring.
This type of setting can make the center diamond appear bigger, with diamonds set around the center stone. The design of a Halo Diamond ring is often preferred by a bride who are looking for something more bold and modern.
