About 4 C's ... Every diamond is a miracle of time and place and chance. Like snowflakes, no two are exactly alike.

There is a lot to learn and that's where we come in. Firstly, have a price range in mind. There are beautiful options in all price ranges and having a budget will help us find you the right ring.
What Setting Makes Sense?
solitaire
Solitaire Ring

A single stone. Still the most popular choice in engagement rings. The head secures the diamond. Prongs allow the diamond to catch the most light. A four-prong-setting shows more of the diamond, but a six-prong setting is often more secure.

sidestone
Sidestone Ring

Diamonds or other gemstones, flank the main stone for additional sparkle or color. Popular sidestone settings include 'channel', which protects stones by keeping them flush, and 'bar-channel', which allows more light to enter the sidestones.

three stone
Three Stone Ring

Three Stone - One diamond for the past, one for the present, and one for the future. Typically, the center diamond is larger than the two side stones.

halo
Pavee Ring

Halo - The main stone is surrounded by tiny diamonds to add sparkle and the illusion of greater size.
