Choose a Setting/Center Stone
Picking the perfect setting is either super easy (I have always loved a solitaire) or challenging (I love so many different rings…how will I pick the one I will be happy with forever?) Whatever you choose, keep your lifestyle and personality central to your choice. Here are some pointers to help you decide:
Do you crave simplicity, mostly wearing understated clothing and jewelry?
Are you athletic and active? work outdoors? A nurse or doctor who is always taking gloves on and off?
Look for a very secure setting with a low profile to avoid snagging and bumping your ring. A bezel setting is always a good choice if you think you’ll be hard on your ring.
Are you a girly girl with a real flare for drama?
Go all out and choose a ring that begs to be noticed…look for side stones galore and a center stone that will not be denied its props. Check out three stone or halo rings. The Cinderella Staircase has caused many a heart beat to skip.
Feeling a strong connection to history? Love an Art Deco, Filigree, or Victorian look?
Check out our Vintage Collection and be inspired by designs that channel history but also have a delightfully modern twist.
Do you want something entirely different from everyone else that looks like it was made for you and only you?
Try our Petite Style rings…you won’t be disappointed. Yearning for something even more custom? Create a ring that no one else in the world will have with the Nexus Design Studio. You will be amazed by how fun and affordable it is to craft the Ring of Your Dreams.
Choosing the right center stone.
The world is your oyster…literally. One of the best things about choosing a Diamond Nexus ring is that every stone shape is open to you. Unlike a mined diamond where choosing an unusual shape like an Asscher, a Pear, or a Princess can quickly escalate the cost of your ring to the “prohibitively expensive” range, our technology allows you to afford any shape or size your heart desires.
Browse through the chart below to learn about some of the virtues of each of the different shapes. If you need some help deciding, call our jewelry experts for some informed advice (800.509.4990). Rollover or click image below for a detailed description. Click Details & Pricing for more information.
