Jewel with a special meaning
Gifts such as rings for engagement gold are a fairly logical and correct stage in the relationship of two hearts in love, who finally decide to move on and are ready to create their own family. And although the wedding ring is worn much longer and has no less sacred meaning - all the most vivid and touching emotions, the first impression is connected precisely with the marriage proposal. And of course, behind this important attribute lies a deep history and custom that will be of interest to many.
A centuries-old history is hidden behind this unique decoration. According to the most popular version of scientists, the tradition of wearing such jewellery originated in Ancient Egypt. Then both partners wore rings on their fingers made of the noblest among metals - gold. Not everyone could afford such a luxury - the cost of the precious metal was high and available only to the wealthiest of people - the pharaohs.
Although the tradition itself was ubiquitous, the commoners didn't have the opportunity to purchase such expensive decorations, and therefore were content with products made from cheap and even improvised materials, such as:
- plants and wood;
- animal bones;
In Ancient Rome, there was also a similar tradition, but there is the man himself didn't wear rings, but gave his lady two at once. One of them was luxurious gold, and the second was fashioned from a simpler material. It was assumed that the girl should wear the first to the public, and the second inexpensive one should be worn at home and not shown to anyone.
The worldwide recognition of this tradition happened with the rise of Christianity, and more precisely after the 12th century, since until that moment it was considered pagan. With the advent of a new understanding, more responsibility appeared: it was believed that only the man who was able to find considerable funds for engagement rings in gold could create a family - this meant that he would also have the means to provide for his future wife and subsequently children and life.
The fashion for such precious gifts with stones came later thanks to the famous German monarch - Maximilian I. For his beautiful bride, Mary of Burgundy, he ordered a unique ring with a real and truly huge diamond. Rumors about such a romantic gesture of the king spread quickly and since then, many rich men have sought to find just such engagement gifts for women in order to demonstrate their power and wealth.
However, at that time, the diamond was too rare a gemstone and only royalty could afford it. Already later, in 1870, a new richest deposit was discovered in Africa, and genuine stone became much more affordable for most people. It was a true diamond obsession - the ladies were happy with such gifts, and the men had the opportunity to show their worth. To this day, the situation has changed little - more than 70% of all engagement rings are made up of accessories with diamonds.
Latest, of course, other styles began to appear, each designer sought to demonstrate his skills, using more and more unique and non-standard materials and their combinations - so the assortment increased every year, and now we can observe its peak. However, FJewellery experts are sure that this isn't the limit - in future seasons, jewellers will definitely find something else to surprise us with. But while the choice is already huge - there is something to discuss and from which to choose. What are we going to do with you now!
Types of engagement rings
Modern forms and styles of such accessories can be conditionally divided into four main types. Each of them has its own characteristics and advantages, and the appearance is selected individually, depending on the goals and preferences of the lady. These are the most versatile options - the basis for further experiments and settings. So, you select the base and, in the future, you can customize it by means of different types, shapes and inserts. For your convenience, we have analyzed each of them and offer detailed explanations with pictures.
- Solitaire - elegance and classics. This style is considered the most iconic and trendy - for many years it has been at the peak of demand and is loved by both ladies with minimalist moods and those who prefer chic and precious sophistication in everything. One stone without additional inserts and decor (most often it's a traditional diamond) is the basis of this style and its business card. It's not possible to confuse or make a mistake here, because such a ring is the purest and most precious luxury!
- Halo - tenderness and shine. The principle of a single stone is also taken as a basis here, but its environment changes. Thus, the central element stands out with the help of micro-placers of shining crystals, which enhance the radiance of the base stone and give it even more weight and significance. This design uses classic cuts such as round, soft square, or the traditional oval.
- Diamond, as the basis of everything. This unique crystal has long been a treasured classic, but there are many variations. So, in recent years, one of the most popular designs is the combination of a large genuine gem and a thin strip of smaller ones on the sides. The cut of the base stone is most often traditional, although princess cut, graceful teardrop or rectangle options are also used.
- Precious trio. Here we are talking about counting three stones, where the size of the central one is larger than the two side ones. They are placed either in one line, or they use the principle of a cluster - in both cases it looks brilliant and spectacular. A more traditional form is used for the base mineral, while the side ones are often made in the style of marquise and emerald cut - such a radiant cut attracts even more attention to the whole composition and helps to set accents. Often, jewellers use several types of stones at once in one piece, combining a classic diamond with brighter inserts, such as a sapphire or a rich ruby.
Also, there are more fancy types of rings, which combine non-standard shapes, unique inserts and more extravagant cuts. These options include eternity rings, where lines of sparkling small crystals intertwine, creating a single and continuous circle of precious radiance. Also, this includes such forms of gems as an exquisite cushion cut, a strict elongated baguette, a stylish triangle or pear shaped. Each of the options can be combined with each other or be an independent insert - in any case, it looks classy and very impressive.
In addition to the obvious ones, the fancy category also includes rings with gold floral or animal motifs - they look much more extravagant and have a certain vintage chic. It's just a matter of your bride's tastes! A large precious flower, a graceful vine, twisted tree branches or a light butterfly - all this is a hint of non-standard and personal female taste preferences, which can be very sophisticated.
And if you want to study such models in more detail, then we invite you to familiarize yourself with them on the FJewellery website. Here you can learn more about their characteristics and sizes, as well as see in detail on real pics in order to immediately imagine how they will look on finger.
Selection of ring settings
At this stage, you may come across certain terms that you may not completely understand, but you definitely need to know them. All these are parts of the jewelry that determine both its quality and style, as well as its final coast. The more complex the design, the more nuances.
- Prongs. This is the basis for attaching any precious crystals. They are presented in the form of small delicate balls that fix the stone and prevent it from falling out of the setting. Their essence is unchanged, regardless of the insert, be it a genuine emerald or a simpler cubic zirconia. For some stones, sharper and longer prongs are also used - this depends on the overall design.
- Basket. This is a form of stone fixing; whose name speaks for itself. The fine filigree weaving of the golden wire imitates a precious basket in which any crystal (diamond, cz, others) is fixed.
- Peg head. This is a detail that is soldered to the base of the ring and thereby visually lifts the stone up above the main composition. They can be 4 or 6 prong, depending on how big or wide the gem is.
- Integrated head. The opposite of the previous element, where the prongs are cast together with the ring and are a single solid metal base. In such models, the stones fit closer and denser to the base - this technique is often used in thick and massive products, where it's necessary to fix voluminous and flat elements.
- Split shank. This refers to the precious stripes that come down to the center of the product, and they may have ramifications. Such lines can be double, triple or even more - they create volume and add a dainty shine.
- Cathedral. This is a setting where a large stone is framed by elegant arches, creating an opening effect. Depending on the shape of the gemstone, they narrow or expand, due to which the jewellery looks quite voluminous on hand.
- Compass point. A frame that uses only 4 prongs to secure the four main sides, as the name suggests.
- Pave. This term, which has French roots, refers to focusing on the main element or even colour, when you need to highlight a large stone by means of scattering smaller ones around. There are also varieties here, such as micro or scalloped pave, where a different number of fixatives are used (4, 6 claw, etc.).
- Bezel. This is a setting where the gem is tightly surrounded by a metal edging that fixes it in place. It's especially popular in contemporary designs and looks good in simple and minimalist decorations.
- Karat. This term can refer both to the weight of the stone itself (e.g., 0.5, 1 or 2 carat) or to the purity of the metal. In the case of gold, it's never used in its pure form, so there are alloys such as 9 kt, 14 or 18 crt. Depending on the indicated numbers, you can distinguish these characteristics from each other.
- Coating. This is also related to the metal and determines its wear resistance and appearance. The finish can be protective or more decorative, such as matte or textured. The latter look especially nice and original in combination with fantasy designs.
