PROMISES & PROPOSALS
Love takes time, dedication, and passion. Now, more than ever, society is mirroring those efforts in sourcing the perfect engagement ring for their significant other. It’s a visual celebration of the journey that led one to their soulmate. So, which engagement ring is right for you and your partner?
Trends come and go, so it’s important to remember that there’s no rulebook when it comes to engagement rings. Cut, color, clarity, and carat are highly important, but one factor should be decided on first – the overall design. As connoisseurs of exquisite and rare gems at Dehres, it’s only natural for our favorite engagement ring designs to showcase the gems that inhabit them. We recommend choosing sophisticated, timeless designs such as solitaire, trilogy, and halo engagement rings.
Most recently, many are investing in diamonds in the larger 3 to 4ct range for their partner, making a bold declaration of their love. The request for intricate design elements in the settings of an engagement is also at an all-time high. This is most frequently featured in the form of micro pavé diamonds intricately set into the structure of the ring.
Solitaire engagement rings lend themselves to an elegant simplicity that no other style can offer. They also allow you to dedicate your investment to a single feature stone, encapsulated in either 18kt gold or platinum.
However, gone are the days of the round brilliant cut diamond being the most popular shape for this style of ring. We’re seeing many more requests for fancy cut diamonds, such as oval, cushion cut, and emerald cut diamonds. Quite frequently, they’re set with shoulder stones especially when the center stone is under 5 cts, which make the main stone appear larger and provide more diamond coverage across the span of the ring.
Another popular option is mounting the diamond in an East-West setting; a beautiful modern adaptation of a classic design, where the orientation of the stone allows for the longer side of the stone to be set parallel to the ring band.
Halo rings exude a femininity that is glamorous yet delicate. A center stage is created by surrounding a larger gem with a multitude of intricate smaller stones in the form of a halo. These rings are exceptionally versatile and are well suited to customization. The carat size of the center stone is a big factor here, and currently, we’re seeing a lot of investment in the 3ct plus range. Our halo rings can feature a colored gem; however, they are equally stunning in an all-white diamond arrangement.
There is something exceptionally romantic about choosing a colored gem for an engagement ring. It takes an intimate knowledge of your loved one’s style. Sapphires are incredibly popular at the moment and are an outstanding engagement ring choice because of their durability. They are found in a myriad of colors, and we frequently encounter rarer varieties and origins here at Dehres. Perhaps you are drawn to the warm pink-orange tones of a Padparadscha, or the rich blues of a Kashmir, or maybe it’s not a sapphire but a luscious red Burmese ruby or even a colored diamond that will be the perfect match for your ring.
