Hidden Details That Will Make Your Engagement Ring Feel Truly Yours
August 15th, 2021
Engagement rings are designed with extraordinary care for detail as these rings are unlike any other jewellery you'll ever wear. Today's brides are increasingly opting for subtler ring styles. The goal is to let the center stone be the star of the show while including a few special touches that make the ring stand out. Read on for Damiani Jewellers' tips on what to look for in an engagement ring with romantic details hidden beneath the surface.
Finding Details to Adore
When you start searching for the perfect engagement ring, your eyes may land on the center stone—and why shouldn't they? It is the main attraction, of course. But it won't take long before you discover hidden design elements that show the extra level of care the designers have given to these engagement rings. Let's look over some details that may capture your heart, and soon you'll be saying this is the one!
Accentuated Accent Stones
Once a decision is made for the center stone, look at the possibility of accent stones for your ring. There are several ways to place the side stones; prong setting, with small claws coming up around the stone, or pave, which allows close-set diamonds to be held in place with miniature beads.
Understated Elegance: The Hidden Halo
Sometimes designers have added details more for your pleasure than anyone else. And isn't that the way it should be? This is your personal love story—told your way with an engagement ring that encompasses everything you want and more. We especially enjoy the new bridal jewellery trend of hidden halos. Instead of enveloping the center stone, a discreet diamond halo is set underneath, forming a collar around the base.
One example of this style is this rose gold hidden halo ring, which features a beautiful twist at the crown. The luxe row of diamonds is set beneath the twisted shanks that form prongs around the center stone.
Take A Peek Below
Modern designers are known to set diamonds in unexpected places for a dazzling display of light. They may appear in a ring's gallery, or they can be found on the bridge. You might need to hunt for these, but once you have seen the flash of light from the profile view—you will likely desire these secret details that warrant a closer inspection every time you show off your ring to someone new.
With draping shanks forming a basket underneath the center stone, this classic gold solitaire engagement ring is a regal beauty. Appearing like a solitaire from above, the ring bursts to life from a side angle view with a diamond-lined gallery. A sight to behold, the radiant diamond details are sure to take your breath away.
If you're the valiant romantic, you'll gravitate to the lovely styles of vintage-inspired rings. One of the signature qualities of this engagement ring style is the delicate detailing found in every ring. Engravings, scrollwork, and milgrain beading can be found in various places from the sides of the ring, the gallery and even under the band. These rings exemplify the phrase old-world craftsmanship.
This ArtCarved vintage engagement ring is a sweepingly romantic style with delicate swirling scrollwork forming the gallery of the ring. Dotted with a milgrain finish, the spectacular craftsmanship leaves nothing to be desired.
