Unique engagement ring settings
A unique engagement ring setting is a wonderful way to display your personality and style, particularly in a piece you plan on wearing every day.
Inspired by crown jewels and classical architecture, this regal engagement ring features a stunning halo shimmering with diamonds and lustrous milgrain and metal beading. Elegant claw prongs make the center diamond or gemstone appear to float in the scalloped halo.
Petite and delicate, this contemporary ring turns the center diamond or gemstone horizontal for a sleek and interesting take on a classic solitaire. The inside of the band is also rounded for increased comfort and wearability.
The harmonious symmetry of the two delicate bands of this ring symbolize partnership and unity, making it a perfect choice for an engagement ring. Already glittering with scalloped pavé-set diamond accents, setting this ring with a pear cut diamond adds to the overall beauty and brilliance of the geometric style.
The center diamond of this ring blooms out of nature-inspired petals of lustrous metal accented with round brilliant diamonds. The gentle taper of the band, also studded with brilliant diamond accents, makes for a beautiful and unique look.
Colored Gemstone Engagement Rings
Although many people associate sapphires with a deep royal blue color, sapphires can come in a whole rainbow of colors, from pink, teal, lavender, yellow, orange, and even white! The entwined vines of lustrous precious metal and delicate diamond buds of the Willow Diamond Ring are the perfect setting to show off a beautiful center colored gemstone.
The graceful curves of the Reverie Ring’s split shank band elegantly highlight the center diamond or gemstone. Set with a vibrant teal cushion cut sapphire, this unique ring is simple yet stunning.
The soft millennial pink or peach of morganite gemstones have risen in popularity in the past few years, and the trend is staying strong! The rosy hues of these gemstones looks particularly lovely set against the warm tones of rose gold engagement rings.
