For many years, it was thought that diamonds worn on the left hand would ward off evil spirits and they signified betrothal to the public. Finally, those who could afford it began to call it a diamond engagement ring. The popularity of the diamond engagement ring really began to take off in 1938 when the advertising slogan, Diamonds are Forever, was coined and when De Beers introduced the control system that successfully worked as diamonds were withheld from the market by way of a monopoly. In the early 20th century, one of the chairman of De Beers Diamond Mining Corporation optimistically predicted that the diamond trade would prosper, ”so long as men are foolish and women are vain.”
You must identify the correct setting for your stone including traditional classic solitaire, three stone setting, side stones, tension setting and pave setting. Your individual taste and imagination will guide you through this choice and should you wish to have a truly bespoke design, an expert jeweller will offer an individually designed jewellery setting. This will allow any setting choice to be fully customised.
Tension set ring cons. The biggest drawback of tension set rings is that they are very difficult to resize. Resizing this style of rings can break the tension and the stone may come lose. This might be a serious problem for a wedding ring, because you are going to wear it for the rest of your life. You may gain or lose weight, and even if you don’t, with age your fingers ”shrink”. Most people need to resize their wedding rings as life goes on, but with tension set rings this is almost impossible.
In many areas of Africa, revolutionary groups have taken over some of the diamond mines using proceeds to finance their illegal operations. These diamonds are referred to as conflict diamonds or blood diamonds. The United Nations instituted a system of controlling diamonds that were taken from these groups by insisting that all of the legal diamonds must be accompanied by a certificate of sale as they moved through the system but the system has not worked well. Today, these blood diamonds total less than 2% of the overall market share.
Engagement rings are not as expensive as wedding rings, but are equally as important as they mark the first official step towards your new life. They also usually have a vastly different design from wedding rings, often solver with a diamond on top. The fact that they come at a fraction of the price is hugely advantageous as it means that you can afford to go all out on the wedding rings whilst still getting something beautiful.
