Characteristics of Engagement Rings
An engagement ring is likely to be the most valuable and sentimental piece of jewelry you ever own in your lifetime. These meaningful pieces are shrouded in symbolism. Early Egyptians and Romans believed that wedding and engagement rings should be worn on the fourth finger of the left hand because of a vein that ran straight to the heart. This vein is referred to as the “vena amoris” in Latin, “vein of love” in English. The circular shape of a ring is also said to symbolize the eternal nature of marital love. Diamonds are chosen as the center stone because of their unique beauty and unbreakable nature, reminiscent of one’s relationship.

Engagement rings in the Passion collection are eye-catching and regal, designed to house large center stones. In contrast, the Classic Romance collection features daintier bands with delicate designs evoking a uniquely feminine air. Those with a propensity for heirloom-style pieces will positively fawn over the Vintage Explorer collection whose rings are decorated with milgrain metalwork and swirling filigree.
