Channel Set Engagement Rings

Similar to the pave setting, the channel setting uses rows of smaller diamonds to accent a larger center diamond. Below are two representative channel set engagement ring designs. Left is a classic design by Brian Gavin using princess cut channel set diamonds. Right is a design from James Allen which uses channel set round cut diamonds. Princess Cut Channel Set Engagement Ring – by Brian Gavin Diamonds. Setting: $2590 more… Vintage Engraved Channel Set Engagement Ring…[Read entire post]

Side Stone Engagement Rings

Side Stone Engagement Rings

Want a ring with a little more sparkle than a diamond solitaire? With a side stone engagement ring, you’ll see a large center diamond complimented by two (or more) smaller stones on either side. The side stone setting allows for a ring with a greater overall carat weight, adding more visual appeal and sparkle to the design. One of the most popular types of side stone settings is the “three stone”. The three stone involves two gems that match each other in size, cut, and color, that are placed to the left and right of a larger center diamond. Below are two exquisite three stone designs by the renowned designer Verragio from …[Read entire post]
