TYPES OF RING SETTINGS
A true classic, this style of ring features one centre stone on a band with no additional stones. Some modernize the design of a classic solitaire ring by choosing a twisted, rather than plain, band or opting for a fancy cut diamond rather than the traditional round brilliant. Above all, the solitaire ring is a timeless beauty, perfect for a treasured heirloom or the modern bride.
Like the solitaire style, the side-stone solitaire features one centre stone, but also includes other stones along the band (shank) of the engagement ring or gathered on either side of the centre stone. Favoured by brides who love both a classic and a sparkly look, this ring style is certainly an eye-catcher. The side-stone solitaire lends itself beautifully to both modern and vintage designs.
A classic setting, a halo surrounds the centre stone with diamonds. The encircling effect of the halo makes the centre stone have a bigger look. Also dramatically increasing the overall sparkle of an engagement ring, a halo can give a ring a vintage style or floral element. A halo style ring is an eye-catching choice, perfect for a bride who loves sparkle.
A traditional engagement ring style, this ring setting boasts three centre stones, with the middle usually being the largest. Often said to represent the past, present, and future of a couple’s relationship, many couples choose other meanings for their three-stone style, such as a religious trinity element or the virtues of a lasting relationship: friendship-love-fidelity. Made with symbolism and a couple’s story in mind, the three-stone engagement ring is always a meaningful design.
Sometimes called a cluster ring, a multi-stone engagement ring is any ring that features more than one stone as its focal point. There are two main types of multi-stone rings: ones that features stones of different shapes and sizes to create interesting and unique designs, and those that feature many stones set close together to achieve the look of one larger stone. Because a multi-stone engagement ring has so many possibilities, it is suited to most engagement ring styles.
