From emerald cuts to pear-shaped solitaires, larger-than-life diamonds dazzle when married with specially-styled settings, exemplified in this collection of O.C. Tanner Jewelers engagement rings and bands.
When shopping for a diamond to commemorate your forever commitment, the pros will tell you it comes down to “The Four C’s:” cut, carat weight, clarity and color.
When shopping for large stones, O.C. Tanner Jewelers’ diamond buyer Ericka Weissman encourages couples to keep a particularly close eye on the cut. A well-cut diamond will have depth in all the right places, where it adds sparkle to the visual appearance of the stone, rather than just adding empty carat weight lower in the setting.
“An expertly cut diamond will look bigger and brighter than its average counterparts,” Weissman says. “Always look for a diamond with an ideal cut, as it will deliver the desired sparkle in any size.”
Now that you’ve found your perfect stone, set your sights on the setting. A sublime setting, as the experts know, visibly accentuates the size and stature of a center stone, including a masterfully cut diamond.
The Kwiat engagement collection, available at O.C. Tanner Jewelers in Downtown SLC, brilliantly showcases the perfect marriage of setting and a spectacular stone. Case in point, consider one of the line’s most unique rings (top) featuring a rare patented Ashoka-cut diamond, encircled with diamond and sapphire halos in an elegant elongated shape. The Kwiat cushion ring, pictured in the third box, showcases a dazzling brilliant-cut diamond accompanied by a platinum band and discreet pavé accents for eye-catching sparkle from all angles.
