As you embark on the journey to forever, an engagement ring serves as a symbol of your enduring love and commitment. With a myriad of styles to choose from, finding the ring that captures your unique bond can feel like an overwhelming task. Fear not, for Soha Diamond Co., is here to help you through the enchanting world of engagement ring styles, from classic elegance to modern sophistication. 

What is a classic solitaire engagement ring? 

The classic solitaire engagement ring features a single diamond or gemstone set on a simple band. Its clean lines and understated beauty make it a perennial favorite among couples seeking a classic symbol of love. This style showcases the beauty and brilliance of the center stone, without any additional embellishments. The center stone is often held in place by prongs or a bezel setting, allowing light to enter and reflect off the stone for maximum sparkle and brilliance. The simplicity of the classic solitaire design makes it versatile and easy to pair with a variety of wedding bands; the solitaire engagement ring complements any style of wedding ring. The minimalist design of the classic solitaire engagement ring allows the focus to remain on the beauty of the center stone, whatever shape it may be. 

What is a vintage-inspired engagement ring? 

Inspired by the glamour of bygone eras, vintage-inspired engagement rings exude charm and romance. From intricate filigree and milgrain detailing, to geometric motifs and colored gemstones, these rings capture the essence of old-world elegance with a modern twist. Art Deco influences are prevalent in vintage-inspired engagement rings, such as squares, triangles, and hexagons. Symmetry and angular designs create a sense of sophistication, reflecting the Art Deco movement’s emphasis on modernity and luxury. Vintage-inspired rings may feature mixed metal accents, combining platinum, yellow gold, and rose gold to create a distinctive look. This blending of metals adds warmth and richness to the design. While not necessarily a vintage or antique ring itself, a vintage-inspired engagement ring features vintage design elements, while incorporating modern craftsmanship and materials. 

What is a three-stone engagement ring?

A three-stone engagement ring features three diamonds or gemstones set along the band, typically with one larger center stone flanked by two smaller stones on either side. Each stone in the ring carries its own significance, symbolizing the past, present and future of the couple’s relationship. The largest stone in the center represents the present moment - the here and now of the couple’s relationship. This stone is often a diamond, although other gemstones may also be used. Flanking the center stone are two smaller stones, known as side stones. These stones symbolize the past and future of the couple’s journey together. While traditionally diamonds are used for the side stones, they can also be colored gemstones that complement the center stone. Three-stone engagement rings come in various styles and settings, offering versatility in design. The center stone may be set higher than the side stones to create a more prominent focal point, or all three stones may be set flush with the band for a sleek and streamlined look. 

What is a pavé engagement ring?

A pavé engagement ring is a style characterized by a band adorned with small, closely set diamonds or gemstones, creating a “paved” or “pavement” effect. The word pavé is derived from the French word for pavement, reflecting the way the tiny stones are set to resemble a paved pathway. The stones set closely together along the band are typically melee-cut, and are set into the metal, covering the surface of the band with sparkle. Pavé engagement rings are known for their delicate and intricate appearance, creating a dazzling display of light and brilliance. The closely set stones reflect light from multiple angles, enhancing the overall sparkle of the ring. The pavé setting can be applied to the entire band or just a portion of it, allowing for customization and personalization.
