One of the most popular settings for diamond engagement rings is a halo setting, featuring a larger center diamond surrounded by a series of smaller diamonds. Halo settings are not only beautiful, but they can also be an economical choice if you desire a larger ring but have a specific budget to stay under. Halo engagement rings most commonly incorporate round, cushion, pear, or oval cut diamonds, giving you a wide range of options. While you may find halo settings in any metal, you are most likely to find them in white gold, as the silvery sheen of white gold blends with the diamonds better and gives the illusion of one larger diamond.
Three Stone Engagement Rings
Three-stone diamond rings have a special symbolism that is particularly appropriate for an engagement ring. Three stones that represent the past, present, and future are reflective of a couple's journey together and share that story with the world. What better way to visualize your love story together than through a sparkling diamond engagement ring full of powerful symbolic meaning? Choose three diamonds or select colorful accent stones on either side of center to add a further element of personalization. Three-stone engagement rings are available in a variety of styles and shapes and will be a perfect tribute to any love story.
A Diamond Is Forever
Diamonds are both a practical choice and a symbolic one. The first advertisement campaign selling diamond engagement rings dates to 1947, marketing a the sentiment of a lifelong union with the slogan “A diamond is forever.” It may only have been a clever advertising strategy at the time, but they got the message across: as the toughest material on earth, diamonds truly are symbolic of a lasting relationship that can weather any circumstances at any time. Not only strong, diamonds are also reflective and prismatic, catching the light and sparkling delightfully. The only thing diamonds don't have in common with your loved one is that they can be bought - the love you share is priceless.
Gemstone Engagement Options
While diamond rings are the most commonly sought, traditional form of engagement rings, there has been a growing trend in gemstone engagement rings. If you're looking for something nontraditional, consider a sapphire or ruby engagement ring. Sapphires come in a variety of shades, the most common being hues of blue, but pink, orange, and colorless are all readily available. Deep scarlet rubies are the color of love and are favored by those who love intense hues. When choosing a gemstone engagement ring, consult your jeweler first about the stone's durability; many lovely gemstones are not good options for rings that will be worn daily because they chip or scratch easily. Sapphires and rubies are harder, durable stones that rival diamonds and are therefore excellent choices.
