The Ring Collection by Melanie Casey

The Ring Collection by Melanie Casey offers unusual and surprising interpretations of classics. From traditional designs to more contemporary styles, this collection reflects the fashion trends and personal style of the wearer.

There are many different ways to style an engagement ring, but one of the most important aspects is the band. This is the piece of jewelry that wraps around the finger and can be decorated with coloured gemstones, pave or milgrain. It represents the couple’s love and commitment to each other.

One of the most popular choices is the diamond engagement ring. The center stone can be anywhere from 0.3 carats to 10+ carats. A halo or band of accent diamonds around the centre stone enhances its appearance and makes it shine even brighter. Many people also choose to incorporate a coloured stone such as a sapphire or emerald.

Another common type of ring is a three stone setting. This design consists of a round diamond at the center, and two side stones – often smaller diamonds – which can be a pear, marquise or baguette. The ring can also be a plain one with no centre stone, or it can be a more complex design with engravings, filigree and pave.

Some other options include a single or double claw setting. Claws are small metal fittings which are used to secure the gemstones on the band. In the United States, they are called prongs. Other types of claws are V-shaped claws or petal claws.

For those seeking something a little more daring, consider the side stone ring. These rings are a unique twist on the classics, creating a striking accent with a variety of shapes and widths. Classic side stones can come in a variety of millimeter widths, and are made with braided or smooth shanks.

Depending on the style, you can pick from several different metals such as gold, platinum and silver. If you are looking for a contemporary ring, you might want to go for an emerald, ruby or pear shaped ring. You can also find a variety of styles that feature floating diamonds or twisting bands.

No matter what kind of ring you are interested in, it is always a good idea to choose one that matches your personality. You should also keep in mind the type of stone you are choosing, as they have different meanings. Colored gemstones add a little more flair to the ring. Lastly, you should be sure to get your ring certified by the GIA, the official gemological institute. They will provide you with a report that will verify the quality of the diamond, which will allow you to make an informed decision.

Finally, don’t forget that you can also create your own ring design, with the help of a quality jeweller. Whether you choose a traditional style or a more unconventional design, your ring will be a reflection of you and your loved one’s style. As an added bonus, it will be a timeless heirloom that will be cherished for years to come.
