ENGAGEMENT RING GUIDE
Everything you need to know about buying an engagement ring, from setting on a style to choosing a metal type.
STEP 1 - START WITH SETTING:
A solitaire ring is an engagement ring with a single, solitaire diamond. A classic style that emphasizes the center stone.discover more
A halo ring features a center diamond surrounded by a circle of smaller diamonds. A bold style that stands out in a stack.Discover more
Just what it sounds like—three diamonds side by side. Traditionally thought to represent the past, present, and future of a relationship.discover more
Like a three stone, but with smaller accent diamonds. Think of it as a step between a solitaire and a three stone.
Pave (pronounced pah-vay) is a French word that means “paved.” Rings with pave bands look like they’ve been paved with diamonds—there is little visible metal, meaning maximum visible sparkle.discover more
A bezel-set diamond is surrounded by metal. This emphasizes the diamond’s shape, while protecting it from scratches.
A band that has no diamonds on it.
STEP 2 - EXPLORE OUR TWO DIAMOND CUTS:
Our Round Brilliant cut is our signature cut. It’s a bestseller, and on average returns 98% of the light that enters it.discover more
Our square-cut Dream diamond is similar in brightness and intensity, but because of its fancy shape, it returns a bit less light at an average of 93% light return.discover more
STEP 3 - SELECT A METAL TYPE:
Our gold engagement rings are a traditional and beautiful choice. We offer rings in the finest 18K yellow, white, and rose gold.
Our platinum engagement rings are gorgeous and incredibly durable. Platinum is a denser metal than gold, and will never tarnish or scratch.
FINALLY, LEARN THE ANATOMY OF A DIAMOND:
The flat, top-most part of a diamond.
The top half of a diamond. (Includes the table)
The pointed, bottom half of a diamond
The tiny area at the very bottom of a diamond's pavilion. It will either be pointed or cut into a facet parallel to the table.
The thin perimeter that separates the top and lower halves of a diamond. We inscribe our Hearts On Fire diamonds with their serial numbers on the girdle.
The "faces" or "surfaces" of a diamond that give it its sparkle. Our Round diamond has 57 facets, and our Dream diamond has 70 facets.
What Are The 4 Cs?
The 4Cs are cut, color, clarity, and carat weight. Combined, they contribute to the beauty, rarity, and overall value of a diamond.
