1. Split shank rings
Characterized by a band that gracefully splits into two delicate strands of precious metal to frame the centre gem, split shank rings offer a look that’s as on-trend as it is a classic. The double band also gives an opportunity to add additional bright diamond accents to a wedding ring frame.
2. Pear cut diamonds
A pear cut, pear-shaped, or teardrop diamond is a classic, timeless, vintage cut that represents an emotional bond or connection. Like a round cut diamond, it is a brilliant-cut known for high sparkle. These loose diamonds are shaped like a teardrop and blend the most desirable elements of round cut and marquise cut diamonds.
3. Gallery Detail rings
A beautiful and subtle way of adding personality to a ring, whether it’s a detailed love heart or infinity symbol to represent your everlasting love, the gallery rail is essentially a bar that sits about midway between the top of the stone and the ring rail or “bridge” and helps keep the centre stone and side stone prongs secure. Some people prefer to set diamonds on the gallery rails for a slight more sparkle.
4. Coloured gemstones
Gemstone rings are among the most comfortable doors for wearing coloured ornaments which can also be matched with various dresses. From birth stones to classic precious gems such as sapphires, rubies and emeralds, a pop of colour is a certainly eye-catching detail for an engagement or a wedding ring.
5. Halo Diamonds
Halo diamond engagement and wedding rings are a beautiful and timeless choice. The halo ring is a setting that encircles a center gemstone in a collection of round pavé or micro-pavé diamonds. Halo rings are cut so that they catch the light at all times for a completely breath-taking glimmer.
