Solitaire or Side Diamonds?
The final step is really the fun part. Do you want the clean and simple tailored look of a solitaire or would you like a complete semi-mount with diamonds on the sides? This is really a fashion vs budget choice. With the popularity of Platinum today, engagement rings are most often done now with smaller side diamonds including baguettes, rounds, marquise and pears. Think of her ring as your diamond's showcase. What design best sets off her diamond? What combination of diamond and setting makes the statement to others that you want to make? In the end, which one is going to take her breath away?
