Princess Cut Garnet and Diamond Engagement Ring in 14k gold

Garnet Engagement Ring and Wedding Band (MyJewelrySource)

This elegant design was inspired by an antique princess cut diamond wedding ring. We modernized the design and incorporated colorful gemstones to create a truly special and striking engagement ring. We wanted the center stone to be more of a traditional size and so we selected 5.5mm, the size of a 1 carat princess cut diamond.  And since we love the symbolism of a 3 stone ring, especially for engagement ring, we knew we must add a princess cut diamond on either side of the center gemstone. The princess cut diamonds are 2.8mm, about the half the length of the center stone. This gives a nicely balanced look. And we wanted to ensure that the rings would have an old world feel similar to that of the original antique ring and so we added the filigree detail to the sides of the ring, the milgrain edging and chose to set the diamonds in a bead setting.

Here we show the original computer aided design (CAD) images of the ring. Since we knew this would make a stunning gemstone engagement ring, we also designed a coordinating wedding band.

Notice how the engagement ring and wedding band are designed to nestle close
against each other for a unified look. A second band stacked on the other side
would also be an amazing look. We used the same size round diamonds in both
rings so that the diamonds line up with each when the rings are stacked.

Tip #15- Matching bands: When choosing a gemstone engagement ring, it is often a good idea to decide up front whether you will want a matching band for the engagement ring. You may decide that as a couple, you would like to have matching wedding bands. In that case then, you can select any gemstone engagement ring since it would not need to have a matching band. Often, once married, the lady will move the engagement ring to the right hand and wear the wedding band on the left hand. MyJewelrySource offers many gemstone engagement ring styles with matching bands. Some matching bands are

contoured to sit flush and nestle right up next to the engagement ring. Some matching bands are straight on both sides, so that they can be used as a stand alone wedding band as well. We also have many one of a kind rings for which we do not show a matching band. For these styles, we can definitely create a matching band. All you need to do is ask. Another look that is gaining in popularity is the stand alone engagement ring. This ring is one that would be worn alone and serves as the engagement ring and wedding band. Some women prefer to have just one ring, or some will find that adding a band actually becomes too much for the finger. So it’s nice to consider how you will want to wear your gemstone engagement ring and wedding band as you are making your selection.
