Introducing The Muse Collection. Inspired by the current three stone and cluster trends, these rings feature big, bold Nexus DiamondTM alternatives with dainty details. The look is intended to be glamorous. The designs are balanced by juxtaposing very small accent stones against the large carat weights. The contrast adds some visual interest and acts as a transition between the center stone and the slender, smooth band.
The Muse rings come in four cuts: Round, Asscher, Emerald and Oval. Each style is offered in just one carat weight—over 2.5 carats for each center stone. These four stone cuts were chosen because they are some of our most popular and classic shapes. With such large carat weights, a simply elegant stone shape is perfection.
Depending on the shape of the center stone, the Muse rings feature a different accent design. The Round and Asscher cut designs are based on a three stone ring, with two small accents flanking the main stone.
The Emerald and Oval cuts, being oblong, needed more to balance the visual weight. They have a cluster of three small accents on either side of the main stone. This creates an interesting combination of a three-stone appearance from a distance, but a clustered effect when viewed closer.
The main element of this collection puts the focus on the large carat weight center stones. With that in mind, the settings were kept quite simple. Basket settings allow light to enter all around the stone, maximizing the sparkle from that big Nexus Diamond.
The simple, unaccented band ensures the rings stay true to the elegant inspiration, while allowing the main stone to take all the attention.
