More Diamonds!

Depending on your ring, there are plenty of ways to make the setting more radiant. One excellent method is to upgrade the setting. If you bought a solitaire, why not swap the setting for a piece with diamond side stones on the shank? A line of diamonds lends its brilliance to the center stone’s delightful display.

If you already have a side stone ring, upgrade it to a three stone ring. Imagine the glamor of a piece exhibiting three marvelous diamonds. Representing the past, present, and future, it will surely evoke a sophisticated and spectacular style. Have a three stone setting? Some designers offer halos ? layers of diamonds that surround the center stone. This can add quite a lot of brilliance to the piece.

Find a New Shade

The band’s precious metal defines the ring’s aesthetic. Its hue contrasts with the ring’s gemstones, evoking a unique and distinctive display. Many settings are available in multiple alloys, such as rose, white, and yellow gold. Furthermore, they may come in various karats. The color of 18k gold is vibrant and bold, while 10k tends to be lighter and less deep.

If you choose to upgrade a setting’s precious metal, make sure you’re following your heart rather than trends. Precious metals go in and out of style in the blink of an eye, while engagement rings generally last for years.

Remount the Diamond

Sometimes, the best upgrade is straightforward: trade your diamond for a higher-quality gemstone. As there are many diamonds out there exhibiting a myriad of characteristics, it’s easy to find something you prefer. Have a pear shaped stone but desire a round cut diamond? Trade it in. Want a large center stone? Get one. Want to increase the overall value of the ring? Find a higher-quality gem.

No matter what diamond you’re trading, there’s a perfect upgrade available. Some even exchange their diamonds for colorful gemstones like sapphires and rubies. We recommend reserving an appointment with us for a private consultation on all the brilliant stones we have available.
