Spring Engagement Ring Styles: Detailed Designs


In recent decades, it was all about the size of the diamond. Size did matter and getting a “Yes” once depended on how many carats. Now, not so much. Today it’s all about the small details, that better symbolize a special union than what’s in a bank account. Goodbye to the rings that looks more like an iceberg and hello to unique, beautiful pieces of jewelry. Here are a few stylish selections for spring 2012.

Tension set engagement rings feature a center diamond held in place with enormous physical force. The Diamond Tension Engagement Ring from Elsa Rings in Farmingdale (www.elsarings.com) is one example of the stylish design. The ring has a large round diamond, surrounded by six small diamonds set underneath and a platinum and yellow-gold band.

There’s nothing more popular than the diamond halo engagement ring style. The design features a large center stone encompassed by sparkling smaller diamonds. You can find a great halo style ring at Manhasset’s Two by London (www.twobylondon.com) that features a large center stone with surrounding diamonds and an additional two rows of sparkling diamonds around the band.

Floral Impacts are big this spring, and floral designs are being seen in many ways. This flower ring from Tiffany & Co. in Manhasset (www.tiffany.com) is drenched in diamonds: from diamond-encrusted petals, which encompass a large center stone, to the band.

Colored gemstones are all the rage this season, and make for some of the most unique choices. “In some case you can tell where a stone geographically comes from just by its properties,” says David Lash, President of Northeast Gemological Corp. in Huntington. One great place to find these rings is Huntington’s Antiques & Jewels on Main (www.antiquesandjewels.com), which boasts an array of different gemstone styles, from contemporary sapphires to 1920s Columbian emeralds.
