Plus the benefits of each choice!
East to West
Compared to the traditional vertical orientation, the art of horizontally setting a stone is a modern take on a seemingly classic look.
1. Offers more protection & security as less of the diamond extends out from the rest of the ring.
2. It Gives the effect of a larger carat weight simply due to not having many other rings you or others could compare it to for reference.
3. Brighter/ more brilliant appearance as more of the diamond is oriented above the gold or platinum shank versus your finger.
4. Allows you to stack and show off more of the diamonds/ gemstones or metal on your wedding band(s).
The feel of both old & new, here we take classic designs of past decades and revamp them into 21’st century luxury pieces that truly look like they are one in a million.
The benefits here are endless, but to name a few..
1. There is a certain uniqueness to antique looking rings. This ensures that no one will have the same ring as you.
2. Much like the attraction to Golden Goose sneakers that took the internet by storm with their pre-aged tennis shoes, these rings won’t ever look outdated or out of style.
3. These rings attract compliments from people of every age because there is so much appreciation for antique looking jewelry.
4. Even more so than traditional engagement rings, it gives the sense that there is a history or story to tell about the piece.
Added Color & Hidden Gems
Colored gems make for an incredible, price-conscious alternative to diamonds. Used as side or center stones, they add a unique pop of color to traditional rings. Our favorite use is when the birthstone of your significant other is placed inside the ring shank or as a halo around your center stone, both as pictured below.
1. Colored side stones or halos can enhance the color and brilliance of your diamond.
2. Increase the carat size of your center stone when using colored gemstones, which are less expensive than diamonds. This can also allow you to increase the carat weight of any accenting diamonds.
3. We recommend only choosing a center stone with a Mohs hardness of 8 or above since you will be wearing it every day.
For reference (Mohs rating): Diamond (10), Sapphire & Ruby (9), Alexandrite (8.5), Topaz (8)
Stack of Bands
Getting more band for your buck as some would say. As the trend of working from home continues to emerge stackable bands are becoming a go to option for versatile couples with active, & travel friendly lifestyles.
1. From minimal to wow, options are endless, as you can stack one, two, or three to even six or seven bands on your ring finger.
2. For those who can’t decide or like to mix metals, colors, and shapes, bands give you the opportunity to have a little bit of everything.
4. Customize and change your stack daily, with multiple bands & choices you can build different looks.
