At Alson, we know that choosing the perfect engagement ring setting can be overwhelming. There are so many options to choose from – simple, ornate, traditional. The setting is what defines the look of your ring and showcases your diamond.
When shopping for a mounting there are a few things to consider. Do you plan on stacking your engagement ring and wedding band together or do you plan on wearing the engagement ring on your right hand and wedding band on the left? If you plan on wearing the two rings together, you will want to consider looking at wedding ring sets. If you favor a more ornate engagement ring, then you should consider wearing your band on the opposite hand.
Three Stone Ring
A very classic look is a three stone ring representing past, present and future. The trio of diamonds can be uniform in size or a larger center stone flanked by two smaller stones.
A popular look right now is the Micro Pave setting on rings and bands. Pave diamonds fit so closely together that you can hardly see the metal on the band. This type of setting adds more sparkle to your ring.
Another popular trend is the Halo setting. This setting has a halo of pave diamonds surrounding the center stone. This often gives a bigger look to your center stone.
For the more traditional bride who is looking for a timeless ring, a round brilliant solitaire setting is the way to go. This setting will never go out of style. It is simple and elegant and can be worn alone or paired with a diamond eternity band.
Fancy Color Diamonds
For brides that would like something less traditional, many are opting for rings with a fancy colored diamond in yellow, pink or blue. These rings are very unique and are show stoppers!
Color Stone Engagement Rings
Engagement rings don’t have to have a diamond as the center stone. Ruby, Emerald or Sapphire is another option to consider. All three are beautiful stones in vibrant colors that make for stunning rings.
