When it comes to designing the perfect engagement ring, it's not just a matter of picking out a shiny rock and calling it a day. There's a whole world of elements to consider, from the diamond, to the setting, the band, and any additional embellishments. And let's be real, with so many options out there, it can be a bit overwhelming. But don't worry, we've got you covered.
First things first, the diamond. This is the heart and soul of the ring, and it's important to get it right. Diamonds are a girl's best friend, but let's be honest, mined diamonds are not exactly environmentally friendly. That's where lab-grown diamonds come in. They're just as sparkly and beautiful as mined diamonds, but without all the guilt.
Next up, the setting. This is the metal structure that holds the diamond or gemstone in place. Think of it as a fancy little bodyguard for your sparkly new friend. There are a variety of settings to choose from, like prong, bezel, and halo, each with its own unique look and level of security. `
Now for the band, the metal ring that encircles the finger. It's like peanut butter to the diamond's jelly. It's important to choose a metal that complements the diamond or gemstone and your skin tone. And let's be real, who doesn't love a little bling on their fingers? Choose from 18k Yellow, White or Rose Gold or Platinum. For those who love yellow or rose gold, you can always consider adding platinum prongs for your diamond to stop the metal from reflecting into your colourless diamond, and add a bit more security with the most durable metal option.
Last but not least, embellishments. These little extras can really take your ring to the next level. Engravings, side stones, or micro pave, can add a personal touch and make your ring truly one-of-a-kind. Think of it as the cherry on top of the sundae, or the bow on the present, it's the little things that count.
Designing an engagement ring is like putting together a puzzle, but with less frustration and more sparkle. And remember, just because it's an engagement ring, doesn't mean it has to be boring. So, be bold, be creative, and most importantly, have fun. Interested in designing something custom - book a free appointment with our Diamond Concierge here
Let’s break down one of our most unique customizations we’ve seen to one of our most iconic engagement ring styles. The Classic Thin with hidden halo and accent micro pave diamonds.
From above this stunning ring looks just like our Round Classic Thin Solitaire set in 18k Yellow Gold but when you take a closer look from all angles, it has some spectacular customizations that personalize it to the wearer.
Customization - Platinum Prongs
If you love yellow gold but want to make sure your diamond is bright white, this customization is for you. Platinum prongs are slightly more durable than gold and they blend seamlessly into the stone. Plus they lessen the reflection of yellow from the band into your diamond, so if you are focusing on a higher colour grade for your diamond this is something you should consider.
Customization - Hidden Halo and Micro Pave Detailing
To make this ring extra unique - our client added a hidden halo, diamonds on the prongs, and the bridge between the cathedral arms. These personal details can’t be seen from above but give the wearer a stunning view from the side.
