5 Perfect Diamond Engagement Rings

This week’s video blog takes us on a 7 minute journey (I aimed for 5 minutes, I really did!) through five beautiful simple classic styles of solitaire diamond engagement ring. I’ve selected five designs which offer an open, uncomplicated setting for a diamond, without fuss or too much detail. Hopefully the following video will provide some ideas and inspiration for someone looking towards modern classic styles. With supporting images to reference the designs, and some descriptions of those styles featured, we hope there will be something that will be well received and perfect for any romantic proposal.

Welcome to today’s video blog. My name is Mark Johnson. I’m owner and Managing Director of Serendipity Diamonds. We’re going to talk to you today and list five different engagement ring styles. We’re keeping the video blog today hopefully to under five minutes, just to keep things simple and brief. Se we’re going to start the ball rolling with one of the five designs (which will all be lovely classic, modern, simple styles, timeless rings which hopefully will work effectively for anyone looking for that, sort of classic style of engagement ring.  So starting things off we’re going to look at  ring style R1D001. The style is such a simple, modern classic design. The ring is a two part ring, where the setting is mounted onto a separate shank. The band width itself, it widens from 2.5mm below the finger to 3mm at the shoulders so quite a substantial band. It narrows then at the setting. The four claws are substantial, and the setting has no underbezel for this reason. What does this do? It literally opens the setting up so the diamonds fully revealed with little interruption of light into the stone. Its a classic Tiffany style setting, perfect for a round brilliant cut diamond. We can also set this very high and proud in the claws or we can drop the stone lower as seen in these images. The ring matches beautifully with our plain weding ring RWD001 in a 3mm width ideally. We jus thought we’d add that in there for reference.  Moving on, we now have R1D002, one of the most perfectly styled twist engagement rings available. This is THE original, timeless modern twist setting. It’s a one part ring design, where the entire ring is created as a single piece. The band itself measures about two and a half mm. behind the finger, gradually narrowing as it rises to form the claws that surround the diamond. The style is graceful and flowing and can be complemented by the shaped wedding ring RWD023 on our site, (it’s in the shaped wedding ring section) this is a pre-created shaped wedding ring and it gently contours around the shape of the engagement ring. So altogether a lovely twist style design. Works really, really nicely.  Now our third ring today we’re going to have a look at is  R1D014. This is a really nice simple style. Despite having additional diamonds in the shoulders, is a very simple design and works nicely. The round brilliant cut diamond is held within four rounded claws, without any underbezel – revealing the stone when viewed from above and from the sides. The band of the ring is kept fairly narrow, at around two and a half mm. and is channel set with a total of fourteen 1.5mm round diamonds , these all compliment the centre diamond for colour and clarity. Anyone browsing our website can choose the weight of the centre stone, along with colour and clarity with the shoulder diamonds complimenting this.  So altogether a very, very nice design.  Now moving on, our third ring we are going to look at is a lovely design, or should I say fourth ring, I’ve completely forgotten the last one we’ve done. Fourth ring we are going to look at now is a Princess cut design.  Really really nice Tiffany style ring design. Now this particular ring is brilliantly faceted it’s a square diamond and we describe it as the Tiffany style setting. So its very very simple, almost like a frame that holds the diamond. The four substantial claws again require no underbezel and open up the side of the ring, revealing the diamond to full effect. The setting flares in a V shape, most pronounced with larger diamond sizes usually above half a carat, and just like R1D001, our first ring we spoke about, the shank is a substantial weight, its about 3mm at the widest point on the shoulders. Again it narrows where it meets the setting. Altogether this is really, really simple, beautiful design, perfect for a Princess cut diamond  in  whatever carat weight you want to opt for and it works really really nicely.  We’re going to move now onto our final ring this is the fifth and final ring today. This style is a six claw setting a really lovely simple six claw setting with a Tiffany style crown. The band itself is a lovely 2.5mm width, a perfect balance really. It represents one of the  most popular styles  of ring that we sell and there are many variations of this, but for a classic, secure, setting for a round brilliant cut diamond, this ring has it all. The six claws offer stability and security for the diamond, and the subtle detail of the setting and double claw styling, which is very slight when you look up close, give this engagement ring a perfect balance worthy of some of the finest diamonds available. Whether you put in a half carat, three quarter carat or a one carat or above, it works really really well. This is one of our own favourites which we routinely recommend to clients.  Well I hope this video today, hopefully we’ve kept it short enough for you and I hope it’s been of some interest, some relevance and again some help really.

So thanks for watching and listening and hope to see you next time. Thankyou.
