Forever Young: Resetting Your Diamond in a More Modern Setting
If you’re celebrating your twentieth, thirtieth, or even your fortieth anniversary this year you might be looking at toasting it with a new ring.
But have you ever considered that resetting your diamond can be just as beautiful and thoughtful as a new ring? There’s no better way to celebrate than updating your diamond.
It’s no surprise that ring trends come and go, and what we loved decades ago might not fit what is in style now. This is why we are seeing many brides wanting to reset their ring. Learn more about why resetting your diamond is a great way to ensure your diamonds last as long as your love.
Why Reset Your Diamond?
It all comes down to personal choice.
Resetting your diamond can be a great option if you have been gifted a family heirloom or vintage ring and are looking to modernize the style. There’s no shame in wanting something a bit more on-trend! Plus, resetting the stone is also a great way to signal that it’s now part of your own identity — just like you wouldn’t wear someone else's wedding dress without modifications. Your ring deserves the same love.
Another reason why people look to get diamonds reset is that they have outgrown their current ring. Many of our clients have had their rings for decades, and the color, style, and weight of the ring might have looked incredible thirty years ago but can look out of place today.
We can help you update your ring but still keep the diamond looking its beautiful best.
What Setting Should I Choose?
So you’ve decided that you want to reset your diamond but you’re wondering where to begin?
The first step is picking the right ring setting. It depends on what outcome you would like — are you looking to enhance the size of your diamond or are looking for a complete change?
If you want to enhance the size of your diamond why not use a halo setting? This setting uses a band (a halo) of gems around the center stone to enhance the size and sparkle. If you are after something a bit more subtle but still want additional sparkle in your ring, have you thought about a hidden halo? This band of gems now sits under the main stone, and is a stunning choice to modernize your setting. We even have a whole blog about it — Why Are Hidden Halo Rings So Damn Popular? A hidden halo is a great way to bring a touch of modernity, without having to make any major changes to the appearance of the center diamond.
Another stunning setting we are seeing a lot is a prong setting. This is where a gem is held in place with delicate prongs — thus allowing for maximum shine impact and showing off most of your diamond’s cut. It’s a stunning choice if you’re looking to show off a gem that might have been more hidden in its previous setting.
If you’re not sure about what setting you would like — we are here to help you. Our experts can advise you on the best ring setting for your diamond.
