When it comes to engagement rings, there’s more than just two parts – the ring and the diamond. And there’s even more to them than the usual vocabulary words we throw around on our blog. Yes, the shank, the gallery, the prongs – they all have their place in an engagement ring’s anatomy. But there’s even more to it.
With a piece of jewelry designed to be worn every day for a lifetime, there’s a lot of forethought and careful construction that go into every single engagement ring. Especially Raymond Lee Jewelers engagement rings. Whether we’re creating our dream ring in-house, or we’re collaborating with our friend and classic-setting-master Al Aletto, we ensure your ring is impeccably designed and constructed. When you choose an engagement ring setting from one of our designers – be it Gabriel & Co. New York, Uneek Fine Jewelry, Verragio, Simon G., or any of our others – you’re getting not only the RLJ promise (and one year warranty!) but you’re also getting everything that designer brand stands for. All of our designer rings are designed and handmade in the USA, and we’ll continue this standard at Diamonds by Raymond Lee.
So while all of our engagement rings are thoughtfully designed, fully customizable, and unique as the brides they’re made for, they’re all made impeccably well. And that craftsmanship starts with the basic building blocks, the parts of an engagement ring. From the head to the gallery, the prongs to the shank style, and all those gorgeous, glittery parts in between – it never hurts to brush up on your engagement ring vocabulary. Here’s how to speak engagement ring, fluently.
