Five Engagement Ring Designs that Accentuate the Sparkle of a Diamond

From the many, you'll discover that fateful single stone

Greetings! I'm Hirashima, a concierge at ith.


The first-time selection of an engagement ring is a momentous occasion in life.


Choosing a diamond is a unique experience in this journey.


The myriad of grades you encounter for the first time, the price variations depending on the stone, selecting a diamond can be quite a thoughtful process.


Then you settle on that one fateful stone.


Therefore, it's likely that many people wish, "I want to create an engagement ring in the design that makes this diamond shine the brightest."



Today, I present five designs that feature a single diamond as the star.


If any design intrigues you, do try them out at our atelier or through our online store.

《Solitaire》There is a rationale behind this timeless design


A classic design that anyone can recognize as an engagement ring at first glance.


The slender ring arm evokes a delicate femininity.


Simple, yet sophisticated.


The slim arm reduces the metal's prominence, letting the center diamond shine forth. That's precisely why, when you wear it, its unique brilliance catches your eye.



This classic design significantly brings out the diamond's presence.


"I want a ring I can wear eternally without it ever growing tiresome."


The classic design effortlessly matches any event or attire.

《Antico》Harmonizing diamond sparkle with your hand

The design with a matte finish on yellow gold exudes an antique warmth, true to its name.


When yellow gold is given a matte finish, it becomes closer to the skin tone, making the diamond's sparkle appear softer, doesn't it?



And the greatest charm of "Antico" lies in its lovely, rounded form.


The metal lovingly encircles the diamond.


The prongs holding the stone also have a rounded shape, unifying the overall atmosphere of the ring.


Importantly, the metal surrounding the diamond can make it appear larger.

《Combi》For a uniquely different design!

A design that is attractive for its combination of platinum and yellow gold.


The yellow gold band blends well with the skin, while the platinum setting enhances the diamond's clear brilliance.


The arm features a stardust texture.


The stardust texture is created by pressing the tip of the diamond, known as the culet, into the metal to create a textured, uneven surface.




The sparkling and delicate stardust shines as if it were a collection of star fragments.


The contrast between the diamond's sparkle and the metal creates a design that is enjoyable to wear.
Moreover, the sparkling stardust, as it rubs against the skin while being worn, gradually transforms the ring's surface into a more subdued matte texture.

The enjoyment of this texture change is unique to the "Combi".

《Soleil》Refreshing with a flat band and an S-curve


Arms that are made flat without rounding are called "flat hammered."

The clean, angular flat hammered design offers a beautiful, straight line that gives a crisp and refreshing impression.


Adding an S-curve brings an element of elegant sophistication.




The combination of flat hammered and curved designs is one of the enjoyable attractions, as the metal's luster changes with the angle of the light when worn.


It pairs excellently with simple outfits, suiting poised, mature women.


Because it curves in an S shape, choosing a wedding ring that also has an S-curve when stacking them together can be worn with very good balance.

《Gloriosa》Enveloped by the imagery of a lily flower



The greatest charm lies in the floral-inspired stone setting, reminiscent of a lily in full bloom.


The prongs, designed after the flower's curved petals, add a flowing gracefulness. This curve gives the ring a three-dimensional effect.


Often, the ring's side view is more noticeable than the front when worn.





A ring with detailed sides brings a moment of exhilaration when it catches your eye.


Since it's a special item like an engagement ring, it's also nice to cherish the excitement it brings.
