A ring like a cushion engagement ring with a halo setting is a great choice for those looking for the perfect engagement ring. It is a blending of two of the most classic styles of ring. It looks stunning and will stand the test of time.
Of course, loving the way your ring looks is a huge part of how you make your selection, but it is also important that what you choose is something you will continue to love for many years to come. This is why so many people swear by these classic and timeless styles.
The last thing we want to do is choose an engagement ring that will fall out of fashion in a few years. We are supposed to wear our wedding rings every day for the rest of our lives. It needs to be something that we love. Classic styles help us to avoid the problem of our ring falling out of fashion. Cushion diamonds are a classic and the halo setting we feature here boasts makes them even more stunning.
Choosing the Best Engagement Ring for You
When we choose an engagement ring, obviously the first thing we are going to consider is the way the ring looks. Since we have to look at it every day, this makes a lot of sense. The cushion engagement ring with a halo setting we feature here is a gorgeous piece of jewelry that is timeless in its style and will continue to look great for many years to come.
Choosing something timeless really is a great way to help ensure that you will continue to be happy with your ring for many years to come. But while looks are important, they aren’t the only thing you need to think about.
You will need to consider your lifestyle when choosing the perfect ring for your needs. People who live more active lifestyles or that work with their hands a lot may have different needs than someone who doesn’t. The last thing you want is a ring that is going to impede your daily doings.
If you live a more active lifestyle, you will simply want to choose a more simple ring that doesn’t have a ton of extending gemstones. For those that do not, well the sky’s the limit when it comes to your choices.
- Considering Quality and Style
Obviously, you are going to want a ring that is lovely to look at. The style of the cushion engagement ring with a halo setting makes it a really great choice for those who want something elegant. Since the style is timeless, you have the peace of mind that it will continue to look great for many years to come.
However, beyond the style of the engagement ring you choose, you will also want to consider the quality of the materials in the piece as well. You want to choose a ring that is a product of the highest quality materials. This also helps ensure that the ring will stand the test of time.
Poor quality materials will quickly degrade over time. A subpar diamond may be more likely to crack or break. And, especially with styles like we are looking at here, a subpar stone is going to be easily seen.
Since the main stone of this ring is the focal point, you want to make sure that you choose the highest quality diamonds you can afford. Any flaws in the stone will be readily apparent in this style of ring. It makes sense to prioritize quality over quantity here.
- Choosing Classic and Timeless Beauties
When choosing an engagement ring, a classic and timeless style is one of the most popular choices. And there are many good reasons for this. The main reason is that these styles are really beautiful.
Classics are such for the reason that they are so lovely that they never go out of style. This is a really good quality for an engagement ring to have. You will have this ring on every day for the rest of your life. You will want to love it just as much in a decade as you did the day you bought it.
Another reason that timeless styles are perfect for an engagement ring is that you don’t have to worry about it falling out of fashion in a few months or years. Trends come and go, sometimes quite quickly and the last thing you want is an engagement ring that is no longer in style. When you choose something classic and timeless, this isn’t a concern for you.
The Cushion Diamond in an Engagement Ring
Cushion diamonds are a popular and elegant cut that is often also called old mine cuts. Basically, this shape takes its name from the fact it looks like a pillow. What this cut does is provide the best of two worlds: the square and round cut. You have a square diamond with rounded corners.
This is a really elegant cut and has been around for more than 200 years. There are actually different subsets within this cut. A traditional cushion cut diamond has a chunkier pattern, whereas more modern cuts will have three basic pavilion patterns.
The pavilion pattern refers to the way and number of cuts that the stone contains. There are also a couple of what jewelers call modified cuts as well, but this goes beyond the scope of this piece.
While these stones are not as sparkly as a brilliant cut, they still have a lot of sparkle and shine. They also have a fire, which many brilliant cut stones don’t have. This cut looks great with classic and vintage styles but also looks stunning in more modern styles as well. The cushion engagement ring with a halo setting featured here has a classic cushion diamond of the highest quality.
The Halo Setting
The halo setting is a classic and unique style. A halo setting is something a bit different even from this classic style. But, it still follows the same basic parameters. The cushion diamond ring we feature here has a hidden, rather than traditional halo.
A ring with a traditional halo setting would comprise a main central stone that has smaller diamond accents that encircle it. Often, you will see this style with round or brilliant cut diamonds, but this style can work with any cut. Since we are looking at a cushion diamond in this piece, the traditional halo setting doesn’t really look right. So, they went with a hidden halo.
The hidden halo setting still consists of the large center stone and smaller accent stones. However, rather than being flush with the main diamond, they actually encircle the side of the diamond. This allows the accent stones to form a circle, even on a ring that has a square-cut diamond.
Like a traditional halo setting, this gives the ring a lot of extra sparkle and shine. But since the stones are around the side of the diamond, rather than flush, it also gives the ring a unique textural look and feel as well.
The Half Eternity Band Option
The eternity band is a popular choice for wedding bands as it allows you to enjoy a few more sparkly diamonds. But it doesn’t have to be the purview of wedding bands. There are actually many different engagement rings that utilize this elegant style.
There is a lovely symbolism in this style that makes it perfectly suitable for engagement rings. The eternity band is a symbol of a relationship that never ends. It shows the combination of two lives into one, for the rest of time. This is a lovely symbolism for someone who wants a ring that is meaningful as well as beautiful.
The style is simple. It basically consists of a band that has small diamonds that are inset into the band. This can be a full eternity band, meaning the stones go around the entirety of the band of the ring. Or, more commonly, you will see half or two-thirds eternity bands.
The ring we feature here features a half eternity band. A lot of people prefer this style because they find it more comfortable for daily wear than a full eternity band. What works best for you will be a matter of preference and personal comfort.
Combining Classic Styles to Produce Elegance
The ring that we feature here actually boasts three different classic styles: the solitaire, the halo, and the eternity band. By combining these different styles, the cushion engagement ring with a halo setting is a unique blend of three classic and timeless styles into an equally classic and timeless ring.
On their own, each of these styles is elegant and fashionable. They are timeless styles that will stand the test of time, regardless of trends. Sometimes simple styles are the best way to go. But for those who want the best of both worlds – something classic but still unique – a ring such as the one we feature here’s a great choice.
The combination of three timeless styles into one ring might sound like too much of a good thing. But, this is one of the most beautiful and elegant rings you can find. It has all the sparkle and shines we know and love. Its classic and simple elegance is hard to beat. While it combines three different styles, this isn’t an overly busy ring.
