The Channel Set Engagement Ring
The Channel Set Engagement Ring offers a classy, elegant and streamlined look that features the diamonds set into the mounting without prongs. The channel set engagement ring is a practical choice for women who tend to be tough on their jewelry.
The Shared Prong Engagement Ring
The Shared Prong Engagement Ring is distinguished by the diamonds sharing prongs with neighboring diamonds. This look achieves more sparkle and allows for fewer prongs and less metal covering each diamond.
The Pave Engagement Ring
The Pave Engagement Ring is recognized as an antique style with tiny diamonds set into place with small beads of metal. The pave look creates a very sparkly, glittering look commonly used around the shank, profile and prongs of the ring and even around the center diamond (which is referred to as a halo).
The Halo Engagement Ring
The Halo Engagement Ring is noted for the ring of smaller diamonds framing the center diamond of the engagement ring. The halo creates an elegant look that makes the center diamond appear to be larger.
