Interwoven and overridden styles are leading the market now. The bands though are very much there, have taken to a little stylizing for a change. These designs have a little work on the sides where the band is split into two strands that twist around one another to finally merge with the even band.
Closer to Nature
Nature still continues to inspire jewelry designs. These rings particularly owe it to nature for their designs. Flowers, vines, sprigs, buds and leafage make the themes of these pieces. Sometimes running water, blowing wind and even waterfalls are captured in the designs of these jewelry pieces.
If the plain prong setting is too ordinary for your eyes, then here is a welcoming change. The claw setting is a kind of prong setting, only that it has a distinct feel of clutch about it. The prongs are eight in number and they have pointy tips. A baguette diamond on a claw setting looks perfect for any style of band.
Minimal and Slight
If you like it simple, then return to the still popular elegant collection. These designs are not likely to lose their popularity any time soon. Timeless as they are, these classic rings are petite and plain. However, there is a radiance about their simplicity which is lent by either the big center stone or the elegance of the designs. There are many options in the delicate silhouette section that may blow your mind away.
