There is no such thing as too many diamonds, so pairing diamonds with even more diamonds is just the fashion statement! A diamond duo can be any matching pair, however, diamond sets can include matching wedding bands, engagement/wedding diamond sets, or even necklace/earring diamond sets. Give your shining moment that old razzle-dazzle with a show-stopping diamond set, and let us show you how it’s done.

 

Diamond Set: Matching Wedding Bands

How can you match diamonds to diamonds? Should you choose matching diamond sets with patterns or just the same setting? The design ideas for diamond sets are dynamic!

Ideas for wedding band diamond sets could include:

  • Similar patterns
  • Bands with a single diamond
  • Eternity bands
  • Inset diamond details

Matching Wedding Bands with Similar Patterns

What kind of pattern could you include in your matching bands? That’s really a personal choice. You can alternate diamonds and a birthstone in a central line across the band. Some couples love adding a simple vertical line of diamonds within the band. Choose two diamonds to represent each of you or three to represent the past, present, and future. You could also create a unique pattern throughout the band. If you don’t find something you love, custom rings are always an option. Diamond details also can nod to your heritage or religious beliefs.

Matching Wedding Bands that Feature a Single Diamond

Diamond solitaires are NOT just for the engagement ring. Create a dramatic central focus by placing a tiny (or large!) diamond within the band. A single diamond looks elegant, simplistic and streamlined.

For added interest, choose a diamond solitaire in a unique shape like marquise, kite or pear. A single baguette or emerald-shaped diamond nods to vintage style.

Eternity Wedding Bands

An eternity band features a band of diamonds that wraps around the entire ring. The most popular diamond shapes for eternity bands include round brilliant, princess or baguette.

Many couples love to create eternity bands with princess diamonds as they create a seamless stream of sparkle. Baguettes also nudge together seamlessly but do not have as much brilliance and fire as the princess shape. Of course, it all depends on taste! Eternity bands also can include a pattern of diamonds and gemstones. You might choose to alternate your birthstone with diamonds or include both of your birthstones in the pattern (with diamonds, too, of course!).

Wedding Bands with Inset Diamond Details

Inset diamond bands are a little different than eternity bands. Inset diamonds can be dropped throughout the band creating a more casual style.

To create a simple but elegant look, choose smaller diamonds to scatter throughout your band. Don’t assume you have to stick with traditional white diamonds for this look, though. Black diamonds look amazing inset into cool-hued metals like platinum and white gold. You can also set white diamonds into a band of darkened metal to design a ring that mimics the night sky!

Diamond Set: Engagement Ring and Wedding Band Duos

What about matching your wedding band and engagement ring? This is a traditional choice for diamond sets and one of the most popular! While you can buy pre-designed engagement/wedding diamond sets, designing your own lets you create a personal statement for your forever.

Your engagement ring and wedding band don’t have to be identical twins. Diamond sets also can feature

  • Opposite details
  • Matching metals
  • Contrasting metals
  • Similar design elements

Wedding and Engagement Rings with Opposite Details

Opposites attract! Your engagement ring and your wedding band can be the exact opposite look.

If your engagement ring features a solitaire set in platinum, choose a gold band (rose or yellow gold) set with diamonds (any shape!). One bold alternative is to flip the style completely and choose a warm gold band with black diamonds.

Wedding and Engagement Rings with Matching Metals

Some individuals just want their engagement ring and diamond wedding band to match metals. Matching in this case just means you select a wedding band in the same metal setting as your engagement ring.

You can choose whatever diamond details you wish for the band. Just make sure that the ring design nudges easily against your engagement ring. Some engagement ring designs require a wedding band that is curved so that the two rings piece together seamlessly. There is no rule, though, that your diamond wedding band has to be the same size or shape as your engagement ring. You may love a wedding band that is wider or that sits higher on your hand.

Contrasting metals look amazing paired together. So match warm gold engagement rings with a cool-hued diamond wedding band.

Just choose metals that offer the most contrast. Yellow gold and white gold don’t offer the same striking drama as platinum paired with yellow gold (or rose gold).

Why? White gold will always feature a tinge of yellow undertone because it is derived from yellow gold. However, platinum, palladium and even tungsten all feature a sleek, silver hue.

Wedding and Engagement Rings with Similar Design Elements

If your engagement ring features floral scroll details, choose a wedding band with similar detail, but the rings don’t have to be matchy-matchy. And, actually, when the two rings have common (but still different) design elements, the pairing plays much more artistic.

An engagement ring with Art Deco designs can be paired with a diamond wedding band with Asscher or Emerald shaped diamonds (both Art Deco-influenced). Engagement rings with Celtic knot details look amazing with a diamond wedding band etched with a different Celtic knot design.

Diamond Set: Earrings & Necklaces

Don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns and details as long as they are similar in some way. A diamond set, though, is not limited to wedding bands and engagement rings. Diamond sets featuring matching earrings and necklaces also make amazing gifts! Choosing a diamond set that includes a necklace and earring combo, though, often does mean a matching pair. You also could think outside the box for these diamond sets. To break away from matching a necklace and earring combo, you could:

Earrings and Necklaces with Different Shapes

With each of these ideas, you can also mix and match diamond shapes for your diamond set. You can choose Asscher diamond studs and a round brilliant diamond pendant. Or round brilliant studs with a princess pendant.

Mix and match these styles to create a diamond set you love. If you don’t see the style that you want, custom design your diamond sets! Brilliance offers custom design options so that buyers can design their dream purchase.

Whatever diamond set you choose always remember to pay close attention to the 4Cs: carat, color, clarity and cut. Each of these four areas impacts the price of the diamond. And while the weight of your diamond (carat) doesn’t affect a stone’s beauty, the other three areas can impact the diamond’s brilliance, appearance, and even its structural integrity.

If you’re buying matching sets from the Brilliance stock collection, you can be assured that the diamonds used in rings, necklaces and earrings always adhere to a quality standard that ensures optimum brilliance.
