At BAUNAT, our engagement ring selection has something for everybody.
1. Solitaire ring
Solitaire rings are the most popular choice for diamond engagement rings — for good reason. By putting a single diamond at the centre of a ring, it will be the centre of attention.
The most common setting for a solitaire ring is the classic six-prong. This setting has six prongs, also called claws, which hold the diamond firmly in place. By holding the diamond like this instead of setting it into the band, it has more room, meaning increased brilliance.
This traditional setting is not your only option for engagement rings; there are other possibilities for solitaire rings and even completely different ring designs as well, such as a pave setting.
2. Solitaire with side diamonds
When there are small diamonds set on the ring band of a solitaire ring, it’s called ‘Solitaire with side diamonds’. The small diamonds on the ring band accentuate the brilliance of the central diamond. It enhances the sparkle of the large diamond and makes it look even larger.
3. Eternity ring
With an eternity ring, a series of small diamonds cover the entire surface of a piece of jewellery. The diamonds are set closely together so that no metal is seen, and only the diamonds are visible. This is truly breathtaking as all you can see are rows of shining diamonds with no spaces between them.
4. Trilogy ring
A trilogy ring is a ring set with three diamonds and stands for ‘the past, present and future’.
If you choose three diamonds, the best option is to have one central larger diamond to attract all the attention and let it be assisted by two smaller diamonds. If you prefer some colour, you can also choose a coloured gemstone or coloured diamond as a central diamond.
5. Toi et Moi
‘Toi et Moi’ means ‘You and Me’ in French and refers to a ring that has two diamonds. This design represents the intertwining of two souls and is, therefore, a popular choice for engagement rings. The two stones can also represent two hearts eternally joined, which is proof of an ‘unbreakable’ couple.
The closeness of both stones and the fact they’re of the same shape and size suggest balance and equity.
This style can also be set with one coloured gemstone or coloured diamond, in case you or your loved one prefers a hint of colour in your/their jewellery.
A halo diamond ring is a ring with smaller diamonds encircling the centre stone. The term ‘halo’ is used because the centre stone looks like it has a halo. The main benefit of the halo design is that it makes the central gemstone or diamond look larger.
While halo ring settings are typically set with diamonds as the centre stone, this isn't always the case. The central diamond can also be changed by a blue sapphire, green emerald, red ruby or other gemstones.
The gemstone can have a round cut, cushion cut, pear cut, or other shapes.
