In the realm of engagement rings, every detail contributes to the ring’s overall beauty. While the center stone commands attention, the choice of side stones can add depth, sophistication, and personality to the design. Among the myriad options available, tapered baguette, round, pear, and half moon side stones stand out for their unique charm and elegance. Join Soha Diamond Co. as we explore how these distinctive side stone shapes can elevate your engagement ring to new heights of style of sophistication. 

Tapered Baguette: Sleek Sophistication and Modern Appeal 

Tapered baguette side stones offer a sleek and contemporary aesthetic that adds a touch of modern elegance to any engagement ring. With their elongated rectangular shape and tapered ends, these side stones create clean lines and a streamlined silhouette, beautifully complementing a variety of center stone shapes. Whether used as accents in a three-stone setting or set along the band in a channel setting, tapered baguette side stones add style to any engagement ring, making a subtle yet striking statement. 

Round: Timeless Brilliance and Versatile Beauty

Round side stones are a classic choice that exudes timeless brilliance and versatility. With their symmetrical shape and dazzling sparkle, these stones beautifully frame the center stone, adding depth and dimension to the ring. Whether adorning a solitaire or accentuating a halo setting, round side stones offer a sense of elegance that never goes out of style. 

Pear: Romantic Elegance and Feminine Grace

Pear-shaped side stones exude romantic elegance and feminine grace, making them an enchanting choice for those seeking a unique and distinctive look. Resembling a teardrop, these stones symbolize love and emotion, beautifully complementing a wide range of center stone shapes. Whether used as accents in a three-stone setting or paired with pave diamonds in a vintage-inspired design, pear side stones add a touch of whimsy and charm to any engagement ring, evoking a sense of romance and enchantment. 

Half Moon: Contemporary Chic and Geometric Sophistication 

Half moon side stones offer a contemporary and chic alternative to traditional round or tapered baguette stones, with their unique crescent shape and geometric appeal. Whether set horizontally or vertically, half moon side stones create a visual effect that adds a modern edge to the ring. Ideal for those who appreciate minimalist design aesthetics, half moon side stones bring a fresh and distinctive flair to the ring, making a bold and stylish statement that is both sophisticated and memorable. 

When it comes to choosing side stones for your engagement ring, tapered baguette, round, pear, and half moon shapes offer a diverse range of options to suit every style and preference. Whether you prefer the sleek sophistication of tapered baguette stones, the timeless brilliance of round stones, the romantic elegance of pear stones, or the contemporary chic half moon stones, there is a side stone shape to complement your center stone.
