There are several types of engagement ring wraps that you can purchase. For those that don’t know, a ring wrap is a type of ring enhancer. Its name describes perfectly what ring wraps do. They are a band of metal with two pieces of metal that extrude further than the band, essentially wrapping around your engagement ring. So the function of the ring is actually why it was named as such.
There are thousands of variations of the ring protector. There are a handful of areas that make them stand apart from each other:
Metal: They can be made in almost any metal. It is most common for people to purchase the same metal wrap and wedding ring. While color is not really the issues here, metal wearing is. For example you can choose 14 karat white gold engagement ring and want a 14 karat yellow gold ring wrap, they will wear the same over time. On the other hand, if you choose to mix platinum and gold, then the metals will wear differently. So the advice on this point is that if you have one type of metal for your engagement ring, stick to the same type of metal.
Stone Type: You can purchase an engagement ring protector with any stone you can imagine. Some of the most common types are diamond, cubic zirconia, Moissanite, and colored stones like sapphire or ruby. You can choose any combination of stones. Adding some colored stones to your ring wrap can give you a completely new dazzling look. You can even choose your birthstones or you children’s birthstone to give it a special meaning.
Stone cut: You can choose almost any stone cut. You can turn your engagement ring into a three stone ring by simply buying the right ring guard. Or you can play with traditional cuts like round, mixed with something like a trillion cut or a trapezoid cut. Playing with the cuts can take you from perfectly traditional to perfectly unique.
Setting type: Ring guards come in almost any setting type. If your engagement ring is channel set, you might want to choose a channel set ring wrap. On the other hand, if you have a channel set engagement ring, you might want to consider a prong set ring wrap. You can actually choose almost any combination and get any look you want.
There are so several variations of Engagement Ring Wraps that it is almost overwhelming. The best approach to take when trying to choose one, is to simply read over the points made above and decide what type you want. Several people actually make a sketch of their ideal ring protector so that when they begin shopping they have a clear idea of what they want to buy. Once you know what Diamond Ring Wrap want, finding it should be easy. You can walk into any jeweler or you can shop online. Either way, you are sure to find what you want.
