Adding Visual Interest to Diamond Engagement Rings Using Various Geometric Shapes
Incorporating various geometrical shapes in diamond engagement rings creates additional visual interest. This can be done by selecting a geometrically shaped center diamond for a solitaire or other style diamond engagement ring. The effect may also be achieved by a ring setting where round or princess shaped diamonds are set in a design to emphasize a particular shape. Finally a more traditional round diamond center engagement ring can be given visual interest geometrically by pairing it with a single or pair of diamond wedding bands that form a geometrical shape around the center diamond(s).
When selecting a particular shaped diamond, the first consideration is always whether or not the person has a favorite diamond shape. If they do, this is definitely the shape that you want to select. Otherwise, consider how the different shapes, with the ball park dimensions, will look on the person’s finger. Keep in mind however that diamonds carat sizes are determined by weight not dimensions. A marquise, emerald cut, pear shaped or cushion diamond can add a great deal of visual interest to a solitaire or other ring setting. Equally beautiful and appealing is a princess cut diamond set turned to give a diamond shaped look.
Achieving the effect with round and princess cut diamonds produces beautiful results as well. Princess cut diamonds grouped together and turned can be used to create a larger, more substantial diamond shaped look. Round diamonds surrounding a larger emerald cut, oval shaped or round diamond in a halo lends more visual interest in addition to making the resulting ring appear more substantial on the recipient’s finger. Combining princess shaped or round diamonds grouped together at the center as well as in swirls or bands can be used to create very distinctive and exquisite diamond engagement rings and wedding ring sets.
Having a traditional style round diamond center engagement ring, princess cut or three stone round or princess cut diamond engagement ring does not mean additional visual interest cannot be added. Pairing these rings with one or two wedding band rings that incorporate rounded, swirled or triangular details can create a beautiful unique effect. For example, a round solitaire with two wedding rings that when combined create a diamond shape around the center diamond or a two wedding ring set that forms a circular or oval shape around the diamond center. Various styles of wedding ring sets could also be tried as pairings with three stone diamond engagement rings as well as other style rings to produce the desired effect.
Regardless of how you incorporate geometric shapes to produce visual interest in your diamond engagement ring, doing this is sure to produce an exquisite ring or wedding ring set that will stand out, encourage many complements and give the bride a ring that will be loved for many years to come. It could also be cherished as a family heirloom to pass down to future brides. Adding visual interest can be just what is needed to take a ring from ordinary to extraordinary.
