Types of Classic Engagement Rings
There are no hard and fast rules for defining classic engagement rings, but there are some tell-tale signs when you see one. They typically feature pavé bands and a center diamond in a plain prong setting, but beyond that, all bets are off. Classic diamond rings can have from one to three pavé bands. While three-banded classic rings are always arranged in parallel formation, two-banded classic rings can be arranged in a simple weave for a more intricate look. Single-banded classic rings can be arranged in a twist for added attraction. Pavés can also feature single bands with double (or even tripe) rows of diamonds. These rings can be complicated with a twist or weave as well. Whether they feature a double row of pavé diamonds or a triple pavé band, these rings are some of the most elegant offerings on the market.
