Engagement Ring Styles - Choose Your Ring

The classic engagement ring is composed of two parts: a diamond and a setting.

We understand that a woman focuses primarily on her ring and less on the diamond itself. But we believe that your value is assured by making sure that you don't let the cost of the ring overwhelm your total budget. In the long run, the most retained value you will have is in your diamond. A ring can always be upgraded but a good quality diamond will stand the test of time and not depreciate. So always look for the proper balance within your budget between getting the best diamond you can and the ring. You won't be sorry.

In selecting a ring, whether you want your proposal to be a surprise, or you want her to be involved in the decision, here are the decisions you'll need to make:

Choose a Style

A. Fishman & Son offers a wide variety of engagement settings. For help in choosing, here's a summary of the four main styles.

Solitaire Settings

This is our most popular engagement ring setting. The prongs position the center diamond to catch the most light. A four-prong setting shows a bit more diamond, while a six-prong setting offers a slight security advantage.

Settings with Sidestones

A setting with diamonds or gemstones adds additional sparkle or color. Channel settings protect sidestones from abrasions by keeping them flush. The bar-channel setting allows more light to enter the sidestones, and creates a scalloped edge of brilliance.

Vintage ("Micro Pave") Settings

This is our most popular engagement ring setting. The prongs position the center diamond to catch the most light. We have Vintage Settings with "halos" and without "halos."

Three-Stone Settings

For a classic ring that's truly unique and created by you, choose all three diamonds to be set in a three-stone setting. The three-stone ring has one diamond for the past, one for the present, and one for the future.

Choose Platinum, 18Kt Gold or 14Kt Gold

If you're unsure what ring metal to choose, consider the differences between 18kt yellow or white gold, 14Kt yellow or white gold and platinum. Since we are often asked specifically about the choice between platinum and white gold, also read Differences Between Platinum and White Gold.
