TRENDS: The East/West Setting! Look at This Hot 2018 Engagement Ring Look!

Monday, June 25th, 2018

It’s engagement season! That means that we’re once again seeing happy couples excitedly shopping for engagement rings together as well as expectant brides-to-be dropping not so subtle hints to nervous grooms from the sidelines.

One thing to remember is that an engagement ring is much more than expensive eye candy, it’s both a symbol of your commitment and an expression of your personal style. If you’re lucky enough to be engagement ring shopping right now – and adventurous enough to be looking for something different – consider trying on one of 2018’s hottest engagement ring trends. It’s called the East/West Setting – and it’s literally a new “twist” on more traditional diamond stone settings.

2018, East West Setting

With the East/West Setting, you go just a little “Feng Shui” and shake things up by flipping your diamond horizontally, so that its ends are facing out in an East/West position, instead of the more traditional North/South diamond settings. It’s unique enough to make admirers of your ring take a second and third look, but elegant enough to ensure that your ring is timeless and classic.

What diamond cuts look the best with an East/West setting? The look works best with the stunning emerald cut diamond as well as elegant oval cuts. Both look amazing when flipped onto their side; particularly when paired with a super trendy rose gold band, or the more traditional platinum, white and yellow gold options. The East/West setting is a look that is all at once romantic, timeless and different – like the love you are celebrating.

If you’re shopping for your dream engagement ring, consider visiting the experts at the Diamond and Jewelry Gallery Studio City, voted “Favorite Jewelry Store” with 50-75% off retail pricing every day and customer referrals as their number one form of business. For a limited time, the store is featuring an unbeatable special with a free matching wedding band along with every diamond engagement ring purchase.

How-To Propose With Custom-Made Confidence!

Since the perfect proposal begins with the perfect ring, the fear of choosing the wrong engagement ring can be debilitating. While you may find the exact engagement ring that you’re looking for displayed in a showcase, opt for custom design if you want to have a surefire confidence that your intended will love the ring you present! With custom design, you’re more in control of both the original concept as well as the finished product. It’s also a way to ensure that the ring you present reflects the uniqueness of your loved one and the bond you share together.

GET THE DETAILS: Having an idea of what your intended likes ensures that you create a ring that will be pleasing no matter your budget range. Have you been given any hints about the diamond shape, setting, metal type and carat size that would make the perfect ring? If so, listen; because you are now equipped with one of the most important “Honey-Do” lists you will ever have.

Knowing what you want will also make your meeting with a jeweler more productive. It’s not absolutely necessary, but, if possible, bring in a picture or drawing of your desired ring. Remember what they say: “A picture is worth a thousand words.”Because the ultimate goal is to create a ring that she loves, other than getting a “No” when you pop-the-question, there’s nothing quite as bad for you and for her as presenting a bad ring that will never get worn.

GET THE LANGUAGE DOWN: Before beginning your engagement ring journey, be sure to familiarize yourself with the “Four C-s”(Carat, Cut, Color and Clarity). These are the absolute diamond basics that every shopper should know. Set aside a bit of time to do your “Four C’s” research BEFORE heading out to make your ring purchase. And, consider this; there’s also a “Fifth C” Coined by the experts at the Diamond and Jewelry Gallery Studio City, the “Fifth C” stands for Cost. Here’s where that comes in…

GET THE BEST FOR YOUR BUDGET: Cost will naturally be more of an issue for some than others. If budget and cost figure very heavily into your plan, then consider opting for a higher quality diamond that may be smaller in carat size but is of a higher quality. You can always up-size the diamond later; and, a quality diamond will be worth more when you’re ready to trade up. An expert jeweler can advise you on choosing the highest quality diamond that fits within your budget range. Another good idea – whether or not you have budget constraints – is to work with a jeweler who is also a direct diamond importer. Doing this ensures that you are not paying extra money for the scouting services of a middleman.

GET TO KNOW A DIAMOND GUY: The engagement ring purchase is one of the most important investments you will make. Choosing the right jeweler will make all the difference in the impact that your ring will have. The right jeweler will not only help you to create the best and highest quality ring for the budget that you indicate, but, also, he or she will include you in every step of the design process – even presenting you with a wax model of your desired ring before setting the stones or casting it in the metal of your choice. This “no-surprises” step in the custom design process ensures your satisfaction with the final outcome of the ring – thus boosting your pre-proposal confidence.
