Side Stones Engagement Rings

Solitaire and halo engagement rings that feature a centre diamond ring are also designed with accent diamonds or gemstones either side of the band and are termed ‘side stone engagement rings’. They give that extra sparkle to your hand and perfectly frame the centrepiece. A popular design for this style of ring is to use round brilliant diamonds as side stones when the centre diamond is a different shape. Our stunning Artelia emerald cut solitaire engagement ring with side stones will give extra sparkle because of the different cuts from the two different shaped diamonds. 

Princess cut diamonds are also very popular as side stones and are commonly channel set for an elegant look and highlight the centre princess diamond perfectly. The Tetra Solitaire engagement ring is a popular choice showcasing this design.

Engagement rings with side stones commonly use a setting called ‘shared claw’ whereby one claw is split in two and are responsible for holding two diamonds in place, this is the most popular setting technique because it keeps the pavilion of the diamond exposed to light bringing out the optimum sparkle.



Side stones are a popular choice when selecting an engagement ring because they add more brilliance and sparkle to the overall ring. They are a popular choice with round solitaire engagement rings and halo engagement rings are often designed with side stones also. Round diamonds are most commonly used as side stones because they are able to be cut the smallest of all the diamond shapes, and can really compliment the central diamond. For example, our Moderna Solitaire engagement ring with side stones displays a delicate band but in actual fact it is the same width as the Artlelia Signature solitaire engagement ring but appears more delicate because of the way the side stones have been expertly set.

In addition, adding side stones with the same size as the halo such as the Adele round diamond halo Engagement Ring delivers a stunning design with lots of sparkle spread and a more vintage look to the side stone engagement ring with a milgrain border on the side stones.
