Buy an engagement ring. Hmmmm….. Buying an engagement ring can be an overwhelming task. Pressure is a given with this type of transaction in particular. The engagement ring represents the symbol of your love for your girlfriend, and your willingness to take the relationship to the next level. Plus, it doesn’t help that your fiance will be showing off the ring to her friends and family. Here are detailed explanations of all different engagement ring styles and what they stand for.
SOLITAIRE DIAMOND RINGS
The world famous solitaire diamond ring refers to one single diamond beautifully mounted on a plain shank. The diamond can be set on a variation of prongs. The most typical prong count is four or six.
three-stone diamond rings
A three stone diamond ring is a great way to spice things up a bit with a deep meaning underlying this gorgeous design. Three stones also symbolize past present and future. They are also referred to as trinity rings.
halo diamond rings
A halo is a round frame of small diamonds surrounding a solid center diamond. Not only is a diamond halo ring stunning to look at and to wear, it is also very desirable because of its effect of enlarging the center stone ''visually'' making it sometimes look almost 2 to 3 times larger in size.
sidestone diamond ring
The side stone diamond ring suits any shape of center diamond. Weather it is round, princess, marquis, emerald, cushion, radiant or royal ascher cut etc. Side diamonds crafted on the shank of your desired ring will always look outstanding and add extra sparkle.
Bridal ring and band sets
A bridal ring and band set is not only beautiful and uniform esthetically, it is also very convenient for part 2, the wedding. The band which matches the engagement ring will be used as the future wedding band for the bride. By choosing the set you will also prevent complications in future of finding the right band to sit flush next to your engagement ring.
Gemstone Engagement rings
If you are drawn to a specific color or gemstone in general then a gemstone engagement ring is the right choice for you! Weather it is green like emerald, blue like sapphire or red like a ruby. Another great perk is that you might be able to get a larger gemstone engagement ring versus a diamond engagement ring due to the price difference for the most part.
