Many Diamond shapes go perfectly with the Solitaire setting including:
Usually, settings for a solitaire rings use prongs that show off all sides of the diamond, offering maximum sparkle. Another popular one is the bezel, which encircles the whole diamond with only the top showing. Other settings include cathedral and tension.
This engagement ring’s name comes from the French word pavé meaning “to pave.“ These rings are ‘paved’ with small diamonds going halfway down the ring on either side of the larger center ring and compliments any diamond shape. This gives the ring a continuous sparkle, plus it gives the larger, center diamond more emphasis. The metal prongs or beads that hold the diamonds to the band are barely visible,
so more of the diamonds show.
Though the design makes sizing and resizing difficult.
There are three different kinds of pavé rings:
Just as it sounds, the multi-row ring features multiple rows, usually 2-3. The rows surround the main diamond consist of smaller diamonds making the center diamond appear grander and sparkle brighter.
The Trellis engagement ring is the best choice for more active people. The four interwoven prongs this design offers extra stability for the diamond/s. If you take a look at the ring from the side, the four prongs form an ‘X’ shape. The setting is open, and that allows you to show off the pavilion (the bottom half) of the ring. More light can hit the diamonds, making them shine more brightly. The unique design of Trellis rings provides an open configuration that can fit up to 4 smaller diamonds. 3 and 5 diamond Trellis engagement rings are the most popular. This classic ring will be treasured for years to come.
Closely associated with being an antique, something that is vintage is anything that was made about 50 years ago. For vintage engagement rings, these stunning designs are inspired by specific time periods.
The following are the different eras vintage rings got inspiration from. The dates are approximate as many styles overlap each era.
Victorian (1837 - 1901)
They took Queen Victoria’s taste in yellow gold (early part of the era) and many rows of diamonds (later part of the era)
Edwardian (1901 - 1920)
Named after King Edward, this era kept most of the late Victorian style of many rows. Instead of using yellow gold, they discovered oxyacetylene could be used to meld platinum. They started using platinum in place of yellow gold.
Bypass engagement rings make use of negative space. The ring coils around the finger, the ends passing by each other at the top.

So many designs to look at and choose from. You also have the choice to design your own custom bypass engagement ring with AngelucciJewlery.
Being one of the most popular, the Halo ring’s design makes a diamond appear up to ½ carat larger than its original size. You can opt to save more money by buying a smaller center ring since the diamond halo that encircles it will give the illusion that it is larger.

Double halo rings bring double the brilliance. Not only does the ring appear larger, it attracts more eyes to your once-in-a-lifetime ring. There are two paved halos that surround the center gem. This is also the most expensive of the halo rings.
9. Shank/Split Shank
With engagement rings, the shank refers to the band. There are many beautiful shank designs variations you can design your ring with that your future fiance would totally love. Here is an example:
10. Channel Set
A channel set is made when the jeweler creates a “channel” or groove within the band, creating a space to set diamonds into them so no prongs are needed to hold them in. These rings look very clean and sophisticated which makes it easily many people’s favorite choice. For this style of engagement rings, princess cut diamonds are the most popular.
