This ring combines some of this year’s biggest engagement ring trends: the halo, the impressively intricate side view, and the delicate lines and prongs. The diamond halo has a very soft and fine shape that gives the center diamond maximum room to shine. The diamond pave band is beveled in a similar way, which gives the ring a refined, feminine feel. You can find versions of this ring in platinum, white gold, yellow gold and rose gold. This engagement ring can be made in an astounding variety of ways. No matter what shape your center stone is, the Dantela ring can be made for it.
The Adonis Rose collection comprises many different types of jewelry pieces, but the engagement ring is really something to write home about. The threaded pave diamonds give this ring a very floral feel, while the marquise diamonds mimic the leaves of a rose. Marquise diamonds have been considered very passé for a long time, but this single collection has created a demand for this antique diamond shape and rediscovered its purpose.
As the antique and vintage looks have taken over in the world of engagement rings, Harry Winston’s classic emerald-cut engagement rings have remained a favorite for those with a sentimental heart. If you have an internally flawless diamond, then it may as be emerald cut, because this is the best way to show it off. Most people prefer it flanked by the tapered baguettes, rather than as a simple solitaire.
This ring looks best when set with a round brilliant diamond that has a minimum weight of 1.5 carats. The band of intertwined pave diamonds is a perfect metaphor for the intertwining of two souls and of two families. It has a magnificent grace when rotated from side to side as its family of diamonds sparkle in the light.
The past decade has brought a flurry of interest in very specifically untraditional wedding rings. However, none has been more popular than the fancy-colored diamond engagement ring. Fancy colored diamonds have been all the rage, and almost no one has been collecting them more voraciously than Laurence Graff. Not only has he made it cool to wear a fancy colored diamond ring, but he’s also successfully increased the popularity of untraditional diamond shapes.
