Women’s diamond wedding ring sets may feature sparkling diamonds on the wedding band in addition to the engagement ring, and sometimes the wedding band will wrap around the engagement setting to create a horizontal line of diamonds when they are worn or joined together. You can also select from plain gold wedding bands to accompany the engagement ring as a part of the set or a gold wedding band with filigree, engraving, milgrain, or other design.
Engagement rings are purchased when a man chooses to tell that special someone that he is ready to bind their life together and gets a ring to symbolize and seal his affection. Traditionally a ring for engagement consists of a prominent center stone studded in a yellow or white gold band. Sometimes there are smaller stones to grace the big one in a certain kind of pattern. Mostly the first choice for a wedding ring is a diamond but these days rubies, emeralds, sapphires and tanzanite are also being used. The center stone mostly has the maximum prominence in the ring and is the crowning glory; it may be a single one like a solitaire. A solitaire ring is often the way a woman envisions her engagement ring, that towering rock with all its brilliance is what will surely take her breath away.
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.”
Colour: the ideal diamond is perfectly transparent. As a natural stone, virtually every diamond has minor structural or chemical imperfections which in turn alter its value. This is almost impossible to see by the naked eye but the colour clarity will be graded and allows for a range of affordability. Clarity: an inclusion is identified as a structural imperfection such as clouding, minuscule cracks or foreign material within the diamond. The variance in number, size, visibility and colour of these will impact the stones’ clarity.
You will find a wide variety of selections to choose from. The engagement ring in the set – like those sold individually – is available with the diamond in round, princess, emerald, oval, radiant, heart, pear, marquise, assher, cushion, and/or trillian cuts. And you will want to consider the four C’s essential to selecting any fine diamond – carat, color, cut, and clarity – as you make your purchase
