Side Stone Engagement Ring
A sidestone engagement ring is a particular style of engagement ring that has two smaller diamonds or gemstones on either side of a larger diamond or gemstone in the centre, usually a solitaire. The purpose of these smaller stones, commonly referred to as "sidestones," which are typically set in the ring's band is to highlight the main stone and give the piece more glitter as a whole.
Although they can be of different sizes and shapes, sidestones on an engagement ring are normally smaller than the centre stone. They can also be a different sort of stone, such sapphires or emeralds, for a splash of colour, or they can be the same kind of gemstone or diamond as the central stone.
Designs for sidestone engagement rings can range from simple and traditional to elaborate and opulent. The additional stones may give the ring greater depth and dimension, giving the impression that it is more complicated and visually appealing.
The potential of a sidestone engagement ring to enhance the beauty and sparkle of a traditional solitaire design ultimately makes it remarkable and gives the wearer a distinctive appearance.
