Antique, Victorian and Edwardian rings were made in a period of history when metals were expensive but labor was cheap. Thus, two to four sides of the ring would have hand-cut designs of open filigree work, often in platinum. Such filigree work saved precious metal for other pieces while displaying hours of carefully crafted work. The rings often had hand engraved floral or leaf designs to further compliment the pieces, making one admire every part of the ring.
A traditional ring puts more emphasis on the main stone and keeps the ring simple. The ring can be a solitaire (no side stones) or it may have smaller side stones that may be channel, bead, or shared-prongs set down the shank of the ring. Traditional three stone rings have always been popular with the center stone slightly larger than the two side diamonds. Besides diamonds, one may choose sapphires or rubies to replace the two side stones. These are durable precious stones and if they are of top rich quality and color will show a beautiful contrast with the center diamond.
This style is often misunderstood by jewelry "designers" with no hands on experience working in the jewelry service industry. They often make heavy rings with stones set too high or set dangerously precarious. However, when done correctly, contemporary rings can actually be a strong and a safe choice for daily wear and active women. You also have the option of mixing styles, such as traditional and contemporary (pictured left), into one unique design.
It is common practice to spend the equivalent of a two month salary on an engagement ring. The center diamond usually makes up the majority of a ring's cost. Understanding how diamond grading works will save you money when searching for a diamond that matches your needs. Diamonds are graded in the following four catagories: color, clarity, cut, and carat weight. These catagories are commonly refered to as the "4Cs".
