Understanding The Basics Of Diamond Engagement Rings

Business,Fashion & Cosmetics
You might be shocked to realize that knowing the various types actually necessitates studying quite a few technical elements if you're new to looking at diamond engagement rings. We're giving you the facts on engagement rings because there is a lot of information to take in at once, such as common ring metals and diamond shapes. As you browse and shop for an engagement ring (whether it's for you or someone else! ), save this helpful guide as a quick reference for all the essential information you need to know.

Shapes Of Engagement Rings

Knowing the differences between different diamond shapes is the first guideline of engagement rings 101. Although a gemstone's cut and shape are frequently used interchangeably, they are two distinct concepts. The cut refers to how the facets (the tiny flat surfaces on the stone) are arranged, which ultimately affects how the ring reflects light. The shape refers to how the diamond looks overall on your hand. Greater facets equal more glimmer! One of the four criteria (the "4 C's") used to grade the quality of diamonds worldwide is cut. Knowing the fundamental diamond shapes is an excellent place to start for practical applications.

The most popular shapes for engagement rings are mentioned here. • Round. • Princess. • Cushion. • Oval. • Marquis. • Emerald. • Asscher. • Pear. • Radiant.

Settings For Engagement Rings

The type of setting, in terms of engagement rings, is the second-most significant component after the stone form. The setting, which describes how the center stone is attached to the band, is partly decided by the form of the stone because some shapes call for particular settings. There are numerous options for engagement ring settings, and they all inspire various aesthetics. A group of tiny diamonds that are set tightly together and enclosed in a "channel" between the band's edges is known as a channel setting.

A halo setting surrounds the Center stone with a band of tiny diamonds or jewels. Some rings have a double halo because they have two circles.

Split shank setting: As it approaches the center stone, a band breaks in half.

The center stone is set in a hole that is drilled into the band in a flush setting, as opposed to sitting above the band. Bezel setting: The top of the center stone is the only part that is not completely ringed by metal. A succession of tiny diamonds are put tightly together in a pave setting along the ring. Three-stone setting: The main stone is flanked on either side by two accent stones or baguettes (long, narrow stones). Small metal elements called prongs serve as a claw to secure the central stone in place. Tension setting: The band applies tremendous pressure to keep the center stone in place. The stone appears to be "floating" between the metals as a result.

Metals For Engagement Rings

The metal is the substance that the ring itself is comprised of. There are several different engagement ring metals available, and they are all priced differently. Budget and personal taste are important considerations when choosing a metal type.
