Choosing side stones for your engagement ring.

Choosing side stones for your engagement ring.

July 30, 2018

Traditional three stone engagement rings have been around for a very long time. De Beers, the famed diamond miner and wholesaler, invented and marketed the three stone engagement ring in 2001. They in fact created the campaign which popularized the design thus creating a better market for their smaller stones to be used as side stones. Before their campaigns, small diamonds were relatively inexpensive and plentiful. After their very successful marketing small diamonds used as side stones became expensive and in high demand. They also marketed the three stone ring as an anniversary ring.

Side stones come in various shapes. The most traditional of which is the tapered baguette cut diamond. Popular side stones are half moons, straight baguette, trilliant, kite, and other specialty cuts. Aside from these, smaller stones shaped like the central stone are often used. I believe that if a three stone ring is what your palate desires then you should use side stones which enhance the center diamond by mimicking its reflective pattern. In other words, use straight baguettes for emerald cuts, and half moons for ovals or rounds and trilliants for princess cut centers. This creates a more harmonic look and I believe a more pleasant appearance.

The main theme repeats itself here as well. You are the most important judge when selecting side stones for your engagement ring as you will be the one wearing it. Do not let yourself be swayed by anyone. Most jewelers will try to sell you what they have in stock. This may be great for them, but at the end of the day you want to be happy with your choice. So, stick to your guns and get the engagement ring that what you want.

This concludes this section of my blogs. On the next blog I will cover precious stones and how they can be used for engagement rings.

Buying and Selling Synthetic Diamonds

  • Merriam-Webster defines synthetic as something resulting from synthesis rather than occurring naturally, especially a product of chemical synthesis. This straight definition of the word synthesis encapsulates the main problem with synthetic diamonds, they are not natural. As such, synthetic diamonds can be, and that is endlessly, produced in factories which have hundreds of synthetic diamonds being produced at the same time. This means these diamonds are very much like anything else made in a factory, cheap and without intrinsic value.

May Birthstone Emerald

Emeralds are found in many countries throughout the world. The most beautiful emeralds come from Colombia’s Muzo mining region. One of the most famous mines, the Sierra Pelada, or shaven mountain, turned a hill into a mine several hundred meters deep. The Muzo region in Colombia yields rich green colors with depth and scintillation and traditional three phase inclusions. Three phase inclusions are made of water, gas and a daughter mineral. This is to say that Colombian emeralds routinely present an inclusion which is a cavity inside the emerald in which gas, fluid and a solid are found together. These inclusions are invisible to the naked eye and require microscopic examination to reveal them.
