Romance and engagement rings go inextricably hand-in-hand. The association between romance and ring design is an obvious connection, taken much further by specific design elements styled into the ring. We have put together 5 most romantic diamond ring designs, suitable for engagement, each with their own flavour of romance. The most obvious feature is the heart shape, the significance of which needs no discussion. We will therefore move swiftly onto address each ring design, and why such a style could be described as “most romantic.”
The Heart Shaped Solitaire
This ring design – R1H033 soars in popularity, especially before St. Valentine’s Day each year. Described as the most romantic of diamond shapes, the heart shaped brilliant cut diamond is most classically styled into a single stone, one diamond, or solitaire ring style. The dimensions of the diamond (length and width) vary but for a guide to diamond mm. size versus carat weight, round brilliants carry the same sizing. A 5mm heart shaped (5mm length : width) we would therefore expect to weight 0.50cts ideally. A great many heart shapes lack the true defined shape, so it is important to ensure that your diamond is what we describe as a beautiful model. (A Serendipity standard!)
Double the Romance – The Two Stone Heart
Taking things further, our unique two stone heart shaped diamond ring, is a signature Serendipity Diamonds ring design. We offer this in a range of diamond size option, but each pair of heart shaped diamonds go through a rigorous matching process to ensure both stones are virtual mirror images, and balance beautifully between the cross-over shoulders of the ring. The band is also perfectly complimented by an optional shaped wedding ring available separately as a bespoke commission. Possessing two hearts, this ring could be described as the most romantic of all engagement rings, on account of the significance of ‘two hearts,’ belonging to a couple, joined on the ring.
Surrounded by Hearts
Taking romantic ring detail down to tiny elements of style, our next ring features tiny heart shapes by clever use of small double claws. From the side profile, the ring looks like a classic round brilliant cut, but viewed end-on, each claw has a tiny heart that sits at the edge of the diamond, surrounding the stone with romantic simplicity. The setting offers security and an unusual design element for those that prefer to keep away from the obvious and strong outline of the heart shaped diamond.
Heart Shaped Pavé Diamond Ring
For sheer decadence and opulent romance, how about a micro-pavé set cluster featuring a surrounding heart shape encrusted with diamonds. This heart shaped halo diamond ring provides the wow factor. The diamonds form a heart shape around a central round brilliant cut diamond. This is one clever use of the heart-shape whilst retaining the classic sparkle and brilliance offered by a perfectly cut round brilliant cut diamond.
The Simple Message
In it’s simplest form, an uncomplicated non-diamond engagement ring, by way of a plain band can be adorned with a romantic message that captures all sentiment in a personal engraving to the inside of the ring. Without the need for diamonds, or detail, a person message can be engraved on any plain ring, or ‘non-diamond’ engagement ring, with discretion and with a heartfelt gesture of true romance.
