There are many choices when designing a diamond engagement ring and Pyramid Studios can help make the process easier for you. The first step is selecting a diamond with clarity and color as key factors. We can also set your family diamond. Also consider sapphires or rubies for a center stone which are second in hardness to a diamond.Then decide on a mounting style you prefer such as a solitaire or a halo style. There are prong settings, channel settings and for the more active lifestyle, bezel settings. The most popular metal we sell is 14kt white gold. For the most durable white metal that will stay white over time, platinum is the best choice if it fits your budget. Also available are two tone rings such as yellow gold bands with white gold or platinum settings (heads) that does not detract from the whiteness of a diamond or the color of a gem.
