Three stone engagement rings continue to be a popular choice as an alternative to traditional diamond solitaires. In many cases, a large diamond is offset by two smaller ones, one on each side. Other styles consist of a diamond offset by other gemstones, such as the birthstones of the happy couple or gems preferred by the recipient.
"As each person is unique, the choice of engagement ring needs to be a personal decision also, one which reflects the personality of the wearer," Johnson continues. "Some choose a traditional diamond for the center stone and colored diamonds for the two smaller gems, and this option should likewise be contemplated."
Women the world over also love diamond stud earrings, and consumers find there are many sizes and price points to select from, based on one's budget. The biggest decision when choosing earrings of this type typically revolves around the metal to be used for the setting, as one can pick from platinum, sterling silver, white or yellow gold, and more.
