Youthful Beauty with a Diamond Daisy Cluster Ring
The classic diamond daisy cluster ring isn't merely a contemporary trend. The design goes all the way back to the 1900's when Old European cuts were all the rage. eBay has enough styles to offer you a unique approach to this timeless look.Which cuts are best for a diamond flower cluster ring?
The classic antique diamond cluster ring design typically has a tight cushion setting, but more contemporary designs have raised settings that separate their stones with metal. An 8 or 4 diamond cluster ring is as unique as its cut and setting. Consider the following:
- A classic round solitaire setting with 58 facets and accent diamonds is subtle and timeless.
- A halo cut is understated, adding volume to a smaller diamond.
- Accent diamonds are usually between 0.02 and 0.18 carats in weight.
- Thick channel settings can be used for diamond daisies provided the channel is minimalist and allows the primary stones to act as the focal point.
- Oval or square cuts can act as the petals of your daisy.
- Flower diamond rings can use pearls or other gems as accents.
- A six prong setting can be used to separate each stone in your cluster.
- A bezel setting secures your diamonds well. It also separates the halo from the centre stone, providing an extra accent.
Cluster settings are among the most challenging kinds of construction in the industry. They demand secure settings and perfect symmetry, so don't be tempted to settle for an economical option. A loose setting risks the loss of your diamonds, so have it checked by a jeweller twice a year. Accent stones tend to be set with less metal than the main stone, so you can assess their settings with a magnifying glass. A sturdy six prong setting won't move back and forth or rattle when you shake it.Which metals work well with daisy settings?
When it comes to a diamond daisy ring, yellow gold is as suitable as titanium if your diamond is white. If you've chosen coloured diamonds, their undertone should complement or contrast with the ring's metal. Hues that fall in the same segment of the colour wheel will achieve a subtle aesthetic, while those opposite one another will achieve a bolder look. To minimise clutter, one hue should dominate your ring because a 50/50 colour ratio tends to look overwrought. A monochromatic white-on-white aesthetic has become increasingly popular and is unlikely to date.
