Arlington & Co. Hatton Garden – Engagement Ring Styles

When you first  go out looking for engagement rings whether as a couple or on your own, shop windows can be quite daunting with vast arrays of what seems like a never-ending amount of different designs for engagement rings.

However, to make sense of it all they can be broken down into five categories.

The solitaire.

A single stone. Still the most popular choice in engagement rings. The head secures the diamond. Claws allow the diamond to catch the most light.

The Fancy Solitaire.

A central single stone with much smaller side stones. A diamond or a coloured gemstone is flanked by smaller diamonds to accentuate size or colour.

Three Stone / Trilogy.

Said to signify your past, present & future. Three diamonds which are similar in size, however, the central diamond will always be slightly larger.

Diamond Surround.

A solitaire diamond with a diamond encrusted surround sometimes with diamonds set into the shoulders. The surround makes the central diamond look much bigger.

Cluster.

9416[1]

One central diamond or coloured gemstone surrounded by slightly smaller diamonds. Traditionally you would find this sort of style with a sapphire to it’s centre.
