The purchase of a diamond engagement ring is a significant jewellery purchase. Shopping for an engagement ring can be a very exciting time. Nevertheless picking the right ring can also be daunting.
Diamond engagement rings come in a variety of designs. Where does one start? To help you get more out of your diamond engagement ring, we’ve put together the following 5 simple tips.
Tip 1: The illusion of a larger diamond
Diamond engagement rings with a rub-over setting give the appearance of a larger diamond. The rub-over setting is a diamond setting technique that is in use for many years. In this classic setting, the circumference of the diamond is fully encased in precious metal. In other words, the metal acts like a frame for the diamond.
Tip 2: More diamond look for your money
Tip 3: Add sparkle with side stones on the shoulders of your diamond engagement ring
Small side stones set on the shoulders of the ring add considerable bling to the look of your diamond engagement ring. The diamonds on the shoulders are typically set in a pavé or channel setting. Typically these diamond go only half way round the engagement ring.
Although the overall look of the ring is less understated, a diamond engagement ring with diamond set shoulders is still a classic and popular choice.
Tip 4: Boost the main diamond with a halo of diamonds
A halo of small round diamonds set around the centre stone of an engagement ring boosts the main diamond. The diamond halo undoubtedly gives the engagement ring a stunningly vintage look.
Although quite a popular style with a round centre diamond, the halo of diamonds can be set with any shape of diamond. Take a look at our designs set with the princess cut, oval shape and cushion cut diamonds.
