In “Beyond the Tiffany,” I showed you some examples of how variances in diamond shape, metal color, side stones, accent stone color and shape and pure imagination can result in a beautiful work of art. Although the classic Tiffany will always be a beautiful and popular choice for many women, it’s important to remember that the possibilities are literally endless when it comes to adorning the fourth finger of your left hand. Here are some more examples of designs that have come across my desk over the last year that have peaked my interest. (Throughout this article you may click on any of the images to enlarge.)
Photographs 1 through 12 show diamond wedding rings with main accent stones. These rings are designed so that they can stand alone without a wedding band if desired; two rings in one, if you will. You’ll see how the use of side-stones to accent the center stone can add a remarkable flair. Unique shapes and/or colored stones make these truly unique.
In photographs 13 through 22 are more diamond wedding rings, but the main accent stones have been replaced with smaller melee that is pave, channel or prong-set.
Of course, “less” is still definitely more for most women—making the classic knife-edge Tiffany (photograph 23) the biggest seller. Cradle cathedrals (photograph 24), pipe-shanks (photograph 25), and rounded shoulder solitaires (photograph 26) are also in high demand.
