As you inch closer to popping the big question, we all have to address the crux of every woman’s dream proposal, the heart of the matter, and perhaps the elephant in the room — choosing the most enchanting engagement ring!
Before you approach your hopeful bride-to-be right off the bat, we know how important it is to select a one-of-a-kind engagement peg for the perfect ‘She said, Yes!’ shot that sets off what could become the most meaningful chapter of both of your lives. It can be daunting to decide on a piece of jewellery meant to represent your solid love for a lifetime, and even more so if you have plans on making a meaningful investment in an opulent diamond ring.
As such, it is essential to understand the intricacies of each craftsmanship and pick one that speaks volumes of your most heartfelt sincerity. Below are the various styles and settings that you can cherry-pick from and put together for your forever person.
Love & Co.’s signature engagement ring designs
LVC Love Journey
The LVC Love Journey is a signature motif of Love & Co. that dreamily reflects every facet of your unique love story. Masterfully crafted with four beautiful heart prongs that cradle the centre stone, this feminine design offers an attractive display of grace with extraordinary sparkle. The stunning high-set stone is set to purposefully add dimension and maximum pizzazz, which all but serves to captivate the heart of your charming significant other.
Infinite love knows no boundaries with the LVC Destiny — an iconic design thoughtfully crafted by Love & Co. The LVC Destiny boasts a stunning infinity symbol that sparkles with pavé diamonds as a hallmark, which serves as a subtle yet highly distinctive showcase of one’s promise of forever. Coupled with its delicate grace and bright lustre, the LVC Destiny is an obvious choice for flaunting your eternal commitment.
Classic engagement ring settings
Often regarded as one of the most timeless and fashionable styles, the prong setting is defined by its understated elevation of the centre diamond. The prong setting nestles the diamond up high to provide special prominence and features a range of prong tips that you can choose from and customise with. With Love & Co., choose from 4, 5 or 6 prong tips for a conventional round shape or select a romantic heart-shape prong that she is bound to swoon over!
Love & Co.’s skilful craftsmanship of a prong setting ensures minimal metal coverage on the diamond and a full display of fire and light in turn. As the prongs are easily customisable to make for that one-of-a-kind design, they complement one of the largest varieties of diamonds and give you great value for money. With its elegant simplicity, the prong setting is an easy-to-maintain piece of jewellery that will surely last a lifetime — just as your dedication to one another.
It’s clear no stars shine alone with the dazzling circlet of pavé diamonds on a show-stopping halo setting. Owing to the brilliant lustre of its accompanying stones, the beauty of the centre diamond is further accentuated and magnified from any angle. Available with a wide range of customisation options to depict any profound love story, halo settings are a perfect head-turner that is bound to captivate the eyes and hearts of any onlooker.
Just as its namesake suggests, the magnificent cathedral flaunts two graceful arches, providing a high-profile elevation of the centre stone. The extra height opens new doors for unrivalled light reflection that is bound to make your significant other feel extra special! This sparkling ring design brings true opulence to life from all facets of the diamond and is the perfect celebratory symbol for the belle of the ball on your wedding day.
An indicator of an effortlessly elegant ring setting familiar to all, pavé (read ‘pa-vay’) means ‘pavement’ in French. A ring with a pavé setting features a dazzling line of diamonds closely set together, making for a frame — or pavement — of continuous shine, which provides effortless luxury at their finest and a straightforward declaration of your sparkling commitment.
Stunningly classic and captivatingly modern, the channel setting perfectly encapsulates a modern woman’s desires. The channel setting owes its exceptional sparkle and gorgeous beauty to its intricate craftsmanship. Distinctively flaunting two parallel rows of small accent stones, it is a wallet-friendly option that provides more dreamy sparkle for less money. Choosing the right setting is a great way to save money on the centre stone while ensuring zero compromises on the resplendency of the ring as a whole.
Types of band designs
Breathtaking in its pure simplicity, the classic band features a timeless and traditional design that highlights the natural beauty and lustre of the centre stone. Not only is it the perfect choice for an enduring symbol of true love, but it also makes for an heirloom-quality ring with a perennial charm meant to be treasured forever.
The gorgeous tapered band features a shank that gradually narrows down towards the mount, further emphasising the centre gemstone’s sparkling beauty. Its delicate proportions perfectly balance out the heaviness of the ring’s setting and design, which makes for an exquisite piece that breathes an air of femininity and style.
Blending vintage with classical and modern influences, the twirl band flaunts a twirling shank with a unique wave-like effect that elegantly contours the finger. Providing a dynamic quality that spotlights the feature diamond, the artistic swirls and curves of the band add a subtle yet eye-catching twinkle of sophistication and vivacity to her style.
The sleek and modern double band is the perfect canvas for any stone shape of your choice — from the classic and timeless to the bold and contemporary. With its subtle centre line engraving, the versatile double band features the look of two bands joined together. The intricate detailing around the groove is bound to add tons of dimension and texture to bring maximum pizzazz to life!
Symbolising the merging of two entwining paths, the twisted band is an obvious romantic choice for those who’ve found their forever person. The soft movement of the twist shank makes for an infinity symbol-like twist that lends a dreamy beauty and aesthetic femininity to the ring. Wonderfully elegant and a unique symbol of true destiny, the twisted band will indeed befit the beautiful bride-to-be as she embarks on a journey of lifelong love.
At Love & Co., we hope to help you with a proposal of a lifetime that is bound to sweep her off her feet! And we know that the ring of her dreams would be the sweetest way to seal the deal. That said, every symbol of eternal commitment deserves to be as unique as the profound devotion between the both of you, and LVC is here to bring that one-of-a-kind proposal ring to life.
