What the Ring Styles Represent
Diamond Rings: The Styles
A symbolization of the relationship between a couple as it should be, the diamond(s) in an engagement ring can vary from being a single one to multiples; often it becomes tough to decide which one to buy if information regarding the significance of each of the types is absent. Not to worry; we took the pain instead….
- Three-stone engagement ring: It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing; in this case, the swing is the diamond, without which, an engagement ring is not what it is supposed to be. A gorgeous alternative to the traditional engagement rings, each of the stones in the three-stone ones stands for the different stages a relationship goes through - the past, the present and the future. Alternate theories claim that the three stones also stand for I, L and U i.e. I Love you. Usually made from durable platinum 950 or in 18-carat gold, the stones come in various shapes, the Trapezoids, the Oval and Round Brilliants, the Princess Cuts and Pear shapes being the most popular ones. For the daring, an account of Queen Victoria might come useful; her engagement ring was in the shape of a serpent whose coils symbolized eternity. The stones remain matched in a row and use a prong-like setting with the stone in middle placed higher than other two. Trinity is another name by which they are called.
- Solitaire Diamond Ring: A single diamond set on a ring, that’s a solitaire diamond ring. The real hulk among all sorts of engagement rings (the simple but elegant settings being another reason), these types make the statement loud and clear – not only emotionally but also quality-wise. Diamond solitaire rings comprise the best diamonds. Simple and clean, the setting shows off the diamond, making it a phenomenon that exceeds the idea of just being a feature.
- Diamond anniversary rings: The easiest thing one can do with a diamond anniversary ring is to establish a style. Another name for it being the Eternity ring, the diamond anniversary rings are a symbol of the never-ending love, the manifestation of which is noticed through the small diamonds encircling the ring. It represents the unending circle of love, besides producing a subtle and more understated a look focusing on the effect delivered by the whole ring rather than by a single stone.
- Diamond promise rings: A symbol of a promise between two people, these are usually meant for people who would like to become engaged at a suitable time. Also looked upon as the embodiment of a vow of chastity (and the name changes to purity rings), they resemble wedding or engagement rings a lot.
- Diamond wedding rings: Smaller in size, more in number – that’s how the diamonds go in the wedding rings and finds its place next to the engagement ring. Often, a combination of stones fulfills the purpose and most of the wedding rings sets match the designs for both the types to go together and complement each other.
Mens diamond rings: With their popularity on the rise with men celebrating their marriage, men’s diamond wedding rings are becoming the new fashion. The trend started during the Second World War. Larger and more noticeable than women’s rings, the men’s wedding rings are wider and comprise more number of diamonds in smaller sizes set in Titanium, Platinum, Stainless Steel or Carbon Fiber, if not in a two-tone (yellow gold and white gold) base.
