At Sylvie, we pride ourselves on the eternal beauty and craftsmanship of our classic engagement rings. One of the defining features of our designs is the presence of small, accent diamonds that adorn the engagement ring three-fourths or half-way down the band. These carefully placed and finely arranged diamonds are precisely set by our team to add an extra layer of brilliance to an evergreen aesthetic for your unique engagement ring.
In addition to the carefully placed diamonds, our classic engagement ring settings also feature a four-prong center stone setting as a standard. This setting is designed to securely hold the center diamond or gemstone in place, no matter the shape and size, while maximizing its brilliance. The four-prong setting is a classic design choice that has been popular for generations and is a timeless option that will never go out of style. Do you have a preference for a unique center stone setting style like bezel-set, v-prongs, or claws? We can make that happen too.
Each of our classic engagement ring settings are meticulously crafted by our team of skilled artisans, using only the highest quality materials. We offer a range of customization options, allowing our customers to choose the type of metal used for the band, as well as the size and shape of the center stone. Whether you prefer a classic round diamond or a unique and rare gemstone, we can help you create the perfect engagement ring to suit your individual taste and style.
When choosing a classic engagement ring setting, it is important to consider the quality of the diamonds used in the design. At Sylvie, we only use diamonds that meet our strict quality and sourcing standards. We carefully select each diamond for its cut, clarity, color, and carat weight, to ensure that our customers receive a ring that has met the consistency of the center stone’s characteristics and any additional requests by our Sylvie brides. The four Cs – cut, clarity, color, and carat weight – are important factors to consider when choosing a stone. The cut determines the stone’s brilliance and sparkle, while the clarity refers to the presence of any inclusions or blemishes. The color of the stone can range from clear to yellow or even pink, with clear stones being the most valuable. Finally, the carat weight refers to the size of the stone, with larger stones being more valuable.
A classic engagement ring is a timeless and elegant style that typically features a single center stone, set in a simple and minimalist band. Classic rings often have four prongs holding the center stone in place, and may also include small accent diamonds along the band.
At Sylvie, there are many variations of classic engagement rings to choose from. Some classic engagement rings may feature additional diamonds or gemstones, while others may have intricate scrollwork or filigree on the band.
The main difference between a classic solitaire and a classic pavé engagement ring is the band. A solitaire ring has a plain band, while a pavé ring has small diamonds set into the band.
Absolutely! Even though classic engagement rings are understated, they can still have plenty of sparkle and shine. Opt for a high-quality diamond or choose a ring with small diamonds set into the band for added interest.
A classic engagement ring is a simple and elegant ring that features a larger center stone in a four prong setting. In contrast, a halo engagement ring has a center stone that is surrounded by a halo of smaller diamonds or gemstones, creating a more elaborate design.
Consider adding a pop of color by choosing a non-traditional gemstone for your center stone, or opt for a unique setting style, like a tension setting or a bezel setting.
The number of prongs used in a center stone setting can vary. All Sylvie engagement rings are designed with the classic four-prong setting which allows for the maximum amount of light to enter the center stone to showcase the natural sparkle of the diamond.
Yes, the classic engagement ring style is versatile and can be paired with a variety of wedding bands. A lot of Sylvie engagement rings have a matching band that reflects the style of the engagement ring.
If you have small fingers, consider choosing a classic engagement ring with a thinner band and a smaller center stone. A classic engagement ring with a pear shaped center stone can also create the illusion of length and elegance on smaller hands.
The most common center stone for a classic engagement ring is a diamond, but other gemstones such as sapphires or emeralds can also be used. Ultimately, the choice of center stone is up to the individual couple’s preferences and budget.
