Side Stone Engagement Rings

Shiny and shimmering with extra sparkle – an engagement ring with side stones takes a solitaire and makes it sensational.

The largest selection of engagement rings falls under the “side stone” category. This ring type has a diamond or other center stone as its focus with smaller accent diamonds or gemstones in the setting or along the band for a unique look with extra sparkle. Side stone engagement rings provide unique opportunities for expression and creativity and are available in vintage, classic, and modern styles.

Prong Setting

“Shared prong” ring types feature diamonds cascading down the sides of the ring. The diamonds are held in place by metal “claws” or “arms” called prongs. When two diamonds are sitting side-by-side, they are held in place by the same set of prongs, thus the name “shared prong”. Prong settings allow the maximum amount of light from all angles to create a very classic and diamond-intensive look.

Channel Set

This setting is most frequently used for wedding and anniversary bands, but looks stunning on an engagement ring. A channel set engagement ring will feature a row of diamonds framed by metal on either side. The diamonds are placed very evenly against each other with no metal separating them. The metal is then worked into a ridge over them, holding the diamonds securely in place. Channel sets are extremely safe and give the wearer a smooth surface.

Pave

Pave, or micropave, literally means “paved” or “cobbled”. This word should paint the picture of an engagement ring absolutely covered in small glittering diamonds. Each diamond is hand-set using very small metal prongs or “beads” to hold the diamond in place. Pave rings use much smaller diamonds than shared prong and can be more affordable, but they take much more attention when it comes to cleaning and checking for loose stones.
