Understanding Bespoke Diamond Engagement Rings
When it comes to selecting the perfect engagement ring, a lot of people are simply unfamiliar with the characteristics of the ring. More often than not, the diamond stone itself tends to get the most attention, but it is important to know that other aspects of the ring– such as the setting and the band– are also essential.
To help you determine the best engagement ring there is, here’s a quick and simple guide regarding the anatomy of a ring.
Usually, the diamond stone (or stones) is the most expensive part of an engagement ring, that’s why being familiar on the four Cs of diamond quality will help you better understand the value of it. It is recommended to learn the importance of the clarity, cut, colour, and most especially– the carat weight of the diamond as these things will help you make the best decision.
While a lot of people believe the setting to be the mere style of the ring, it is actually the part that locks the diamond stone in place. Every type of diamond setting is made to securely hold the diamond in its position. There are mainly two types of setting: the bezel and the prong. Generally with round diamonds, there is the option of choosing either four or six-prong. Moreover, though a four-prong setting will be able to display more of the diamond stone, a six-prong ring setting allows more advantage for securely holding the diamond in place.
The Ring Band
When we talk about the anatomy of the ring, the band is evidently the second most noticeable feature after the centre diamond stone.
Bands are obtainable in a variety of precious metals which includes yellow gold, white gold, platinum, and the one that’s getting more and more popular– the rose gold. In addition, bands are created in a wide assortment of styles. Though solitaire settings are still the most traditionally popular, ring bands these days can be three stone, channel set, splitshank and more. Aside from that, ring bands are also accented in pave or halo settings, as well as with various gemstones.
All of these are very important when it comes to choosing the perfect engagement ring. However, despite having to learn all of these elements, one might still have a hard time finding the right ring. If that’s the case, then why not design your very own diamond engagement ring?
A lot of people are opting for bespoke jewellery because of the advantages it provides. Bespoke jewellery allows you to choose the design, character, and the overall look of the ring.
