Solitaire Engagement Rings
The Solitaire Engagement Ring setting gives a refined and elegant look, showcasing the diamond beauty. The setting was made popular in 1886 by American jewellers and is still a bestseller. The most popular diamond shape set into this style is the round brilliant cut. Solitaire engagement rings are available in 4 and 6 claw settings with twist variations. You can browse all of our solitaire settings, available in Platinum, 18ct White, 18ct Rose & 18ct Yellow Gold via the link below.
Shoulder Set Engagement Rings
Shoulder or diamond set engagement rings feature round brilliant diamonds set into the band. The smaller diamonds are fixed with either cut down, pavé or channel set styles. Descriptions of these can be found further down this page. This setting is particularly effective when matched with our wedding or eternity rings to add sparkle without distracting from the centre diamond.
Three Stone Engagement Rings
Three stone engagement rings hold three diamonds that are said to represent the past, present and future of your relationship. Classically, the centre diamond is larger than the two surrounding diamonds, but settings with stones of equal size are growing in popularity. At Steven Stone we have both types of three stone engagement rings, which can be viewed via the link below.
Bezel Set Engagement Rings
The Bezel Setting consists of a fine precious metal frame encircling the centre stone around its girdle. A bezel set engagement ring is very suitable for people with active lifestyles, as the centre stone is securely set in gold or platinum, protecting its edges from accidental chipping. Bezel settings could easily be accommodated to diamonds and gemstones of any shapes and sizes. Steven Stone offers diamond and gemstone engagement rings in full and partial bezel settings, available in plain metal or set within a diamond halo.
