Deciding on the perfect engagement ring setting is as varied an experience as there are couples deciding to marry. Some decide together on the right ring, while in other cases a romantically minded groom works carefully to provide a perfect surprise for his unsuspecting bride-to-be. Finding the right choice is fun, and exploring the options is an adventure.
Diamonds take center stage in bridal jewelry, and finding a diamond setting that captures her heart and her style are priorities. For some, a simple solitaire is perfect. There are many contemporary cuts, though, that allow for intrigue and interest to be captured in the choice of ring. The teardrop shape of the pear cut stone, for example, is elegant. Some prefer the princess cut, a captivating square shape that is off the beaten path in an engagement ring.
Important to consider, diamond shape is a determining factor in the beauty of the engagement ring. Just as important are those facets incorporated underneath. An emerald cut diamond, for example, can produce a less fiery appearance than that of the similar radiant cut diamond because of the types of facets created on the underside of the stone.
The material of the setting can make a difference in appeal. Yellow and white gold are the most common choices for bridal settings. In finding a more unique setting, though, rose gold is gaining in popularity.The romantic pink hues of the copper and gold alloy make the choice a perfect representation of love and romance. Two-tone settings are also exceptional contemporary choices in an engagement ring, especially when the materials are creatively merged in the ring design. Halo engagement rings create exceptional emphasis on the shape and size of the stone, whether the halo is crafted of metal or inlaid with smaller accent stones.
The romance of an engagement ring is wonderful, especially when it’s emphasized through beautiful design elements. Picking the perfect setting depends on the unique interests that define a couple.
