Second time a round...

March 5th, 2020

You should feel free to choose a ring that represents what you love. Perhaps a diamond solitaire seems too conservative, or maybe a larger diamond seems more appropriate for this time in your life.

The second time around is a great time to go bold, go big and get unique with engagement ring designs. Gemstones are also a great choice as a center stone. A large carat amethyst makes a bold and dramatic statement when surrounded by a halo of diamonds. When selecting a gemstone as a ring's center stone, opt for larger carat weights. Most gemstone prices are much lower per carat than diamonds.

Whether it's your second time around or your first, our engagement ring selection is spectacular. Let's talk about style and explore some of the bridal ring designers we offer at Windsor Jewelers. The most common styles are solitaire, halo and three stone.

Simply SOLITAIRE. As the name implies, it's a single stone set in your metal of choice. Solitaire settings are also known as "prong settings" where 4 or 6 metal prongs are used to mount the center stone in place. Prongs can be rounded, clawed, pointed, v-shaped or even flat depending on the design of the ring. And although solitaires are a classic engagement ring style, there are many design options to make yours uniquely your own.

HALO engagement rings feature a brilliant center diamond or gemstone surrounded by small accent diamonds. This design blends classic elegance and vintage style with a modern twist. As one of the most on-trend looks of today, a halo engagement ring is an impressive ring!

THREE-STONE engagement rings feature two side diamonds or gemstones that accentuate the size and brilliance of the center diamond. Three-stone settings' center stones are usually set higher to add depth and make it a substantial ring style.
