Modern Engagement Ring Settings
When most people think of modern engagement rings, they think of contemporary styles. Nevertheless, “modern” refers more to the 20th century architecture and art styles that it does styles that are in the moment. Because of this, modern rings will not go out of style next year. Modern rings typically include channel set diamonds that blend together the natural elements of precious metals and diamonds with clean, sleek style. Modern engagement rings are an excellent choice for future brides who prefer elegant looks backed with confidence and style.
Split Shank Engagement Ring Settings
For brides looking for a different twist on the classic diamond engagement ring, split shank rings are the perfect choice. The split shank band splits before wrapping the center diamond which causes the eye to focus on the center. In this manner, the split shank engagement ring places the focal point on the diamond’s fire and brilliance. Although the split shank style is a spin on traditional styles, it is still a versatile engagement ring style that can be combined with other looks to create stunning, modern rings. For example, split shank rings can feature pave bands or halo settings around the diamond to add even more sparkle.
Vintage Engagement Ring Settings
Although the concept of an engagement ring has been around for centuries, the early 20th century saw a huge rise in popularity of diamond engagement rings. During this time, the Art Deco period also had a great influence on popular culture. Perhaps it's for this reason that so many future brides desire a vintage style engagement ring. Vintage rings find their inspiration from the handcrafted details and combine these aesthetics with modern sensibilities to create truly gorgeous engagement rings. When shopping for a bride who finds their style cues from the past, a vintage engagement ring setting is an excellent choice.
Gemstone Engagement Ring Settings
When many engagement ring styles seek to add additional diamonds, gemstone rings opt for pops of colour by adding additional gemstones. In recent years, gemstone engagement ring settings have seen a massive rise in popularity. One of the main reasons for this increase is brides are preferring to have their rings match their personalities. Adding colourful gemstones to their engagement ring provides this opportunity. If you're considering purchasing a gemstone engagement ring, consider adding gemstone accents that utilise her birthstone.
