Side Stone Rings
Characteristics of Side Stone Engagement Rings
“Side stone” refers to a style of engagement ring in which the center stone is framed by stones along the band that add to the aesthetic of the ring and the center stone especially. There are a thousand different variations of the side stone engagement ring, and the designers who work in this style explore those variants in a way sure to surprise any woman looking for something special to mark her proposal. Here at Merry Richards Jewelers, side stone engagement rings represent one of our most interesting styles, and we’re sure that the fiancée-to-be will find something she really adores.
Popular Collections of Side Stone Rings
Christopher Designs is an atelier studio that shows the extremes of creativity that can be teased out of the side stone engagement ring. Take, for example, the Crisscut Emerald collection. A glorious emerald-cut center stone is framed by descending “steps” of channel-set emerald-cut side stones. These stones decrease in side, creating an effect like a curve of light crafted from diamonds. Alternatively, the Christopher Designs Crisscut Round collection uses three different layers of round-cut diamond side stones whose shape and size variations both reiterate and accentuate the round-cut stone at the engagement ring’s heart.
Additional Side Stone Ring Collections
The Simon G Vintage Explorer and Delicate collections show that side stones need not be white diamonds! The Delicate collection really lives up to its name with the addition of pink diamonds. Their sweet, blushing color, set in a channel of 18k rose gold, creates a truly delicate effect that compliments the beauty of a woman. Alternately, the Vintage Explorer collection of side stone engagement rings boasts a luminous line of prong-set white diamonds, but beneath the 18k white gold crown holding the center stone, a yellow gold bezel holds a canary-yellow diamond, creating a flash of surprising color in these artistic rings.
