Five Stone Engagement Rings
Five stone engagement rings were popular over a century ago, but have gained popularity again thanks to their stylish, balanced setting. Tradition states that the five diamonds of a five stone engagement ring represent the past, present, and future of a relationship; which is probably why many five stone rings are given as anniversary rings. However, five stone engagement rings are also a fashionable alternative to the traditional diamond solitaire engagement ring. Just ask Madonna and the Duchess of Cornwall, who both received five stone engagement rings from their husbands-to-be.
Five stone rings may feature five diamonds of the same shape, such as five princess diamonds, for a symmetrical appearance, or the shapes and cuts may alternate for an interesting visual pattern, such as a princess cut diamond flanked by two trilliant diamonds. Typically the center diamonds is the largest of the five and is set higher than the others to attract the most attention, but five diamonds of the same size can also be used if you prefer.
Band options for five stone engagement rings run the gamut from a simple, unadorned gold band to pave or channel set diamond bands. If you prefer a vintage-inspired look, consider a five stone engagement ring with a halo around the center diamond and perhaps scrollwork or milgrain on the band. For a sleeker, modern feel, you might prefer minimal detail and a straightforward platinum or white gold band. We offer many styles to complement your personal taste.
