Triple Diamond, Solitaire, Or Non-Traditional – How to Choose the Perfect Engagement Ring
Solitaire – Classic And Timeless
Many people immediately think of the solitaire when they think of an engagement ring. These rings use one single stone on a simple band. The stones can be nearly any size or cut, such as round, princess, trilliant, marquis, pear and heart. However, the most traditional and classic version is a round brilliant diamond on a gold or platinum band. If you want a little more sparkle, consider a wedding band or wrap with diamonds or other gemstones.
Solitaires come in a wide range of price points so there’s sure to be a ring for any budget. Smaller diamonds that aren’t graded or certified by the Gemological Institute of America will be less expensive, but can still have the same sparkle and fire.
Triple Diamond Rings Renew Your Love’s Energy
Triple diamond rings are gaining popularity as more and more couples want the energy and sparkle that comes from multiple stones. These rings typically have one larger center stone that’s flanked by two smaller stones. The diamonds can be all the same cut, but the newest trend is to use different cuts for the two smaller stones. Popular rings can have a princess cut center stone flanked by two trilliant stones or a round center stones flanked by two pear shaped stones.
These rings can be set in white gold, yellow gold or platinum. If you choose gold, it’s a good idea to make sure the stones’ prongs are platinum since platinum is stronger and will handle everyday stress and wear better.
Nontraditional Rings Show Off Your Individual Style
Although diamond engagement rings are the most common, a ring doesn’t have to contain a diamond. Some women prefer to show off their style and individuality with a colored gemstone such as a ruby, emerald, sapphire or other stone. Some of these rings take their styling from the triple diamond rings, but use a center diamond and two colored gemstones to show off the center stone’s energy more effectively.
There’s no right or wrong way to wear or give an engagement ring, as long as your proposal comes from your heart. Your choices are limited only by your budget and your personal style, so don’t be afraid to shop around – after all, this is a ring you will both look at for the rest of your lives. Whether you’re looking for a solitaire, a triple diamond or an nontraditional ring, you can be sure she’ll say yes if you find one that matches your future bride’s personality and energy.
