One of the most common questions when picking an engagement ring is about the setting. Is more expensive worth it? Or should you save on the setting and go all out on the stone? We make the case for why a premium setting is worth the initial expense.
CHOOSE A SETTING THAT LETS YOUR DIAMOND SPARKLE FROM EVERY ANGLE
An extraordinary setting can take your stone’s sparkle to the next level. You don’t necessarily think beyond the canvas when you look at a famous painting, but museum curators certainly do. Your diamond’s setting should never be secondary. It’s like the Mona Lisa without a frame! A superior setting can really enhance the “wow factor” of any stone by displaying it in a way that enhances brilliance from every angle.
PROTECT YOUR DIAMOND WITH A DURABLE SETTING THAT KEEPS THE STONE SECURE
The 4Cs are key when it comes to a great-looking loose diamond. However, a more expensive setting isn’t only about enhancing its cut, color and clarity but also about ensuring that a stone endures. A precise setting, forged from a strong metal (like platinum) supports your diamond, and protects the value and longevity of your engagement ring investment.
INSURE YOUR ENGAGEMENT-RING INVESTMENT AGAINST THEFT, LOSS OR DAMAGE
In addition to choosing a setting designed to help your engagement ring to last a lifetime, there’s still the unexpected. From accidental damage to losing a ring all together, the heartbreak of parting from this precious symbol of your love is equal to the financial strain. Insuring your ring can put your mind (and heart) at ease.
Bottom line, an extraordinary diamond deserves an equally extraordinary setting to amplify the quality of its assets. Besides, it’s all about the first impression—and that look on your partner’s face when you pop the question.
