If you are shopping for an engagement ring, you may have been asked “what type of metal do you prefer the ring to be made out of?” Rose gold is becoming more popular with its beautiful pink color. It is composed of both gold and copper, and it is the high percentage of copper that produces the warm and rich rose metal color. Since copper alloys were most common in the 19th century, most antique jewelry is rose gold. It has become even more sought after in recent years with a look that is both modern and vintage. The rosy warm color is a romantic look and pairs beautifully with diamonds; it is also suitable for all skin tones due to its soft appearance.
1. French Cut Basket
One style that is very popular is the French cut basket setting. It looks great in rose gold and with an oval cut center diamond. Both Blake Lively and Julianne Hough have oval cut diamond center stones set in a rose gold setting. Our Adiamor R2981 is an elegant choice in rose gold. It showcases the oval center diamond and has a dainty band at 1.5mm wide with diamonds that extend half way down the band. The basket is adorned with French cut diamonds. You are also able to customize this ring by adding diamonds to the prongs for added brilliance!
2. French Cut Cushion Halo
3. The Dainty Solitaire
The Dainty Solitaire setting with a round cut center diamond is simple and refined, while at the same time modern and stylish in rose gold. Lauren Conrad made this style popular. Here she pairs her engagement ring with a French cut diamond wedding band. Our Adiamor version, R3046 is 1.7mm wide and can be set with any shape or size center stone of your choice. The simplicity of this ring is timeless and will never go out of style, while the rose gold metal is a soft and romantic touch. If you want a style that will make your center stone stand out, then this is the ring for you!
4. Custom 3 Row Micro Pave Basket
Oval cut diamonds look great when set in a rose gold custom 3-row micro pave basket engagement ring setting. Whitney Port’s engagement ring from Tim Rosenman is both classic and modern at the same time. This fashionista is all about standing out and being unique, which is exactly what her rose gold oval cut engagement ring says. Our Adiamor version, R3077 is absolute perfection! This ring has 3 rows of micro pave diamonds for the maximum amount of brilliance! This ring with an oval cut center diamond is stunning, but can be made for any diamond shape that you select.
5. Bezel Set Solitaire Engagement
A bezel set solitaire setting with an Asscher cut center diamond looks beautiful in rose gold. When Adam Brody proposed to Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester, he did it with this Art Deco inspired bezel set solitaire in rose gold with an Asscher cut center diamond. Our bezel set solitaire version R3055 is sophisticated and modern. The band is 1.7mm wide and can be polished to a sand, matte, hammered, or high polish finish. This has a true vintage feel that will never go out of style!
Tradition is a wonderful thing, particularly where weddings are concerned. However, making room for new practices and aesthetics as you plan to celebrate your lives together can enrich your special day just as much as the tried and true. For a fresh, modern interpretation of romantic classics, there’s no better place to begin than with the engagement ring. Updated designs and lesser-known metals have inspired some of the most beautiful rings we’ve ever seen, and few trends exemplify this more than rose gold engagement rings.
Rose Gold Engagement Rings
Rose gold, sometimes called pink gold, was created when artisans began experimenting with different mixes of metals to produce different colors and weights in the final product. Because all gold used in jewelry like engagement rings contains a percentage of other metals necessary to make it strong, options for color and customization at the base level are numerous. Other variations such as green gold and black gold have achieved respectable popularity over the last several years, but rose gold is now in such high demand that it has achieved comparable status to old favorites like yellow and white gold.
Engagement rings and wedding bands in this warm, unique hue are among the hottest wedding trends of 2015.
For brides seeking just a slight modern twist on classic engagement rings, or to form a perfect blend of old and new, a simple solitaire setting rendered in gorgeous rose gold is all it takes. As you can see in the styles curated below, even this straightforward style is open to creative, unique tweaks that set it apart from other solitaires.

Another attractive and interesting example of rose gold’s “old meets new” style potential is this beautiful metal’s easy combination with vintage design elements. Simple diamond accented bands, art deco halos, and whimsical Edwardian leaf and vine bands all get a refreshing new look in rose gold settings, preserving the tradition and aesthetic sensibilities of the old days while breathing new life into these classic styles.

Milgrain and Hand Engraving
Milgrain, the tiny beaded or ridged pattern often seen accenting the edges of a band setting, and other hand engraved accents come in and out of fashion from year to year. Currently, these design features are experiencing yet another revival, and it’s no accident that they’re frequently paired with the rose gold trend. The striking color of rose gold engagement rings draws the eye more than the yellow and white tones of traditional engagement rings, making the impact of small, intricate details more pronounced and dramatic. Milgrain and hand engraving give the elegant styles shown here a more finished, handcrafted look that is a nod to vintage designs, as well as new looks.

The split shank setting is elegant, eye-catching, and the perfect way to add uniqueness and creativity to a traditional solitaire or diamond-accented band. Special details like hand engraving, tulip settings, and fancy diamond shapes add yet another dimension to these beautiful split shank styles. The split shank is also very versatile, opening the door to a world of custom and handpicked elements for building your dream ring.

Show Off the Metal
Rose gold’s striking color is what sets all of these styles apart from the everyday engagement ring, and many brides to be are choosing rose gold engagement rings that put this beautiful metal in the spotlight just as much as the brilliant center and accent stones. A broad, sculpted band on a rose gold engagement ring creates a surprisingly modern, rich look, reminding us all just what it was that made us fall in love with rose gold in the first place.

Pile On the Diamonds
The bright contrast of rose gold provides the ideal backdrop to make strong diamond accents stand out even more dramatically. Close-set and invisible set diamonds appear even more impressive, while diamond accents set with an individual stone setting process like pave or bezel have their cool sparkle showcased on the warm, rosy bands.
From left: Emerald Cut Three Stone Engagement Ring Setting, $795 R3060; Invisible Set Princess Cut and Baguette Engagement Setting, $1980 R2321; Cushion Double Halo Split Shank Engagement Setting, $1690 R2971; Tapered Baguette and Emerald Cut Three Stone Setting, $3150 R3039
Two Tone Metal Combinations
Of all the looks we’ve covered here, a band accented with gold in other colors is by far the most modern application of the delightful rose gold trend. Sometimes this is very subtle, like our many rose gold settings featuring white old prongs that add to the brilliance of the diamonds. In many styles, though, the mixed media effect of working with gold in two or more different colors is the ring’s defining feature.

Here is the transcript of the Accesso Total segment on NBC Universal’s Telemundo featuring Adiamor Diamonds & Fine Jewelry.
Alright, for those who are thinking of getting engaged this Saint Valentine’s Day and still haven’t bought the darn ring, I visited a jewelry store where I was given some information to keep in mind. Let’s see.
Contrary to what a normal jewelry store is like with display cases, we found this place in downtown Los Angeles where they make your engagement ring not only to your size but also to your special order. I spoke with Jennifer Sarkisian, one of the owners, who explained to me that after Christmas, this date is definitely the one on which they sell the most engagement rings.
I think there’s a lot of pressure to get engaged on Valentine’s Day…
With the pressure many men are under to buy the ring on this such special date, they have to know that there are many options, and sometimes it helps to know the partner’s preference.
We have everything from a simple solitaire, round…
Solitaires, the classic stone, square stones known as princess cut, rectangular, oval, and the ones in the shape of hearts are the most popular options. But be careful, with companies like these where orders are made on the Internet, or anywhere you buy diamonds, you have to make sure you’re not getting ripped off.
Very important that you’re buying…
You have to make sure you buy certified diamonds. The prices of diamonds depend on four characteristics: the cut of the stone, its clarity, the color, and of course, the carats. Tomás Apata works in the part of the shop assembling them and making them just to the customer’s order.
The first step is we count the diamonds, the ones that are going to go on the ring. We start drilling the rings to make the holes for the rings.
You’re the one in charge of mounting the stones, right?
In what part of the process does that go?
You could say in the middle of the process. We polish them; after polishing you still do an inspection of the ring to make sure all the diamonds are tight-fitting.
Mm-hmm. About how long do you guys take to create a complete ring?
It varies. It could be from one hour to, I don’t know, we’ve taken up to 10 hours, 12 hours on one ring.
But you completely finish the rings here?
Here. We can finish them, yes.
Greetings to Tomás, to Arturo. They work there assembling the rings, and they say that at 10:00 in the morning, they always have us at Acceso Total on, so thank you very much.
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and if Cupid has blessed you with a special someone, it’s time to find the perfect Valentine’s Day jewelry gift!

Thin band engagement rings are among the most flattering styles available, and their versatility and delicate appearance have elevated them to contemporary classic status while simultaneously placing them among the top trends of the year ahead.
Almost any style of wedding band is comfortable to wear with a thin engagement ring, as the streamlined design of a thin band leaves plenty of room for different shapes and custom fit rings for your wedding day. Thin bands can also trick the eye and make fingers look longer and more elegant.
Despite their small surface area, thin bands can be beautifully finished and accented to suit every woman’s personal style. The different metals, gem stones, and fine details possible ensure that thin band engagement rings are never boring.
Plain Bands for Thin Band Engagement Rings
Variations on the classic diamond solitaire engagement ring are well-suited to the thin band trend. The simple yet dramatic contrast of a glossy, unadorned band crowned by a perfect sparkling diamond is even more striking when a slim, delicate setting is chosen. A band measuring between 1.5mm and 2.0mm in width is the ideal size for the thin band look and puts the spotlight where it belongs: on your gorgeous center stone.
In the selections below, the versatile qualities of a simple thin band are demonstrated in the markedly different looks created by setting each one with a different center stone. The traditional round and princess cut designs offer a classic look for this perennial favorite, while the oval cut diamond (shown here with and without a halo accent) offers something a little more offbeat for those craving a little modernity with thin band engagement rings.

Diamond Accented Thin Band Engagement Rings
Diamond halo settings or settings for solitaire stones accented with small pave set diamonds are stunning in any form, and when created as a thin band engagement ring setting the effect is dazzling. Choose a white metal like platinum or white gold for a look in which the diamonds seem to float above your hand, or a warmer toned metal like yellow gold or our wonderful 18k rose gold for a beautiful contrast.
Here, we’ve chosen both angular and rounded center stones, with and without halos, to illustrate the varied effects of different materials and design features. Choose a metal based on skin tone, wardrobe, or simply the way you feel when you imagine wearing it during the many happy years you and your beloved will share.

Settings for Fancy Diamond Shapes
We’ve already discussed the lengthening effect of thin engagement rings on fingers. For an even more pronounced effect, pair a thin band setting with an elongated diamond shape from our fancy shapes diamond selection. The one-two punch of a slim setting with a marquise, pear, oval, or emerald cut diamond is utterly dazzling, and creates the long, lean look of aristocratic hands. This design choice also has the added benefit of making your center stone look much larger that it would on a thicker band.
In addition to the lean look these styles give, pairing fancy diamond shapes with bright metals or sparkling diamond accents results in unique, stylish pieces that ladies with non-traditional tastes adore. The rings featured below are just a few of the combinations possible with our options for customizing center stones, metal type, and setting style. Browse our site or read our blog post about building your own engagement ring at Adiamor.com for even more choices!

Thin Matching or Complementing Wedding Bands
One of the greatest benefits of wearing an engagement ring with a thin band is how easily these styles fit alongside wedding bands. A narrow setting can be comfortably worn with a wedding band in any width or style without the full wedding set becoming too bulky or heavy for daily wear. Choosing a thin band for both your engagement ring and your wedding ring allows you to maintain the stylish, attractive thin-band look.

The thin band trend can be counted among the rare styles that look wonderful on almost everyone. Wearers with short or thick fingers can achieve a more average appearance with a thin band, while the long, elegant lines of other hand and finger shapes are accentuated and amplified by a delicate ring setting.

Adiamor’s Best Engagement Rings of 2014
We understand that choices, while wonderful, can potentially also be overwhelming. To help you make this life-changing purchase, we’ve compiled a list of our picks for the best Adiamor engagement rings of 2014 as represented by our unique and varied selection. From cutting-edge trends to classic styles, these are Adiamor’s picks for the top 10 most gorgeous engagement rings.
Follow the link to any ring in this post to create it as pictured, or mix and match the elements that are right for you!
In terms of growing popularity, no other diamond shape can match the meteoric rise of the cushion cut. In just a few years, this shape transitioned from occasional retro styling to nearly outselling the classic round brilliant shape. Paired with a round diamond accented basket setting in platinum, the cushion cut center stone is both secure and stunning.
For an engagement ring that truly dazzles, no other style comes close to an elegant diamond accented halo setting showcasing a pristine cushion cut center diamond. Strong, shimmering white 14k gold provides the perfect backdrop for the bright white stones. Featuring nearly half a carat of round accent diamonds set in the band, halo, and underside of the setting, this design is quickly transitioning from vintage inspiration to contemporary classic.
The perennially popular solitaire engagement ring gets a fresh new look when reimagined in 18 karat rose gold and featuring a fancy cut oval center stone. Adiamor offers this design in multiple metal and center stone combinations, but we love this version’s balance of the diamond’s cool gleam with rose gold’s signature warmth.
Diamond accented engagement rings have an opulence all their own, and the combination of vintage elements such as the halo-ringed center stone and split shank platinum band in this design result in true luxury. The choice of a fancy cut oval center diamond sets this style apart from more common designs featuring a round center diamond.
Above, we offer yet another take on the Art Deco-inspired halo engagement ring set with an elegant cushion cut center stone. This design features approximately 100 round accent diamonds lining the exquisite halo and split shank setting.
Elegant 18 karat rose gold is among the fastest emerging modern jewelry trends. Expect to see more of this lovely, distinctive metal option in 2015 and beyond, and stay ahead of the curve by pairing it with an oval fancy cut center diamond in a French cut halo setting. Accent diamonds on each side of the delicate band complete this eye-catching look.
Few comparably simple designs have the stylish staying power of the classic diamond solitaire, and no list would be complete without this most traditional of engagement rings. A perfect round brilliant diamond crowns the slender 1.7mm band of this mainstay style, available in four prong or six prong settings.
Thanks to the rarely utilized trillion cut accent diamonds flanking a breathtaking cushion cut center stone, this design possesses both a vintage sensibility and a modern flair. Three stone rings are becoming more and more popular as engagement and anniversary rings by virtue of the past-present-future symbolism often attached to the style.
Subtle glamor abounds in this diamond accented basket setting, shown here in 18 karat rose gold with a round center stone. In addition to the more immediately obvious round diamonds accenting the band, delicately set stones also adorn the edges of the fine basket setting, rendering this design absolutely breathtaking at any angle.
Clean lines and disregard for convention are the hallmarks of this stand-out style sported by none other than Beyonce; the unpredictable star managed to keep her 2008 wedding and 2014 album under wraps even while turning heads with her spectacular 18 carat emerald cut diamond engagement ring.
Because Adiamor’s engagement rings are made to order for each individual wearer, your possibilities for custom fitting and styling are almost endless. Before the process of choosing the right center diamond in one of our fancy cut or traditional diamond shapes begins, the extensive customization options for each style in multiple precious metals and setting styles makes it easy to create a unique piece that the wearer will fall in love with.

Dress Up As a Fiancé: The Best Halloween Proposal Ideas for 2014
Halloween is the first of many special days celebrated near the end of each calendar year, kicking off the holiday season with celebrations, costumes, and delicious treats. For the sweetest Halloween of your lives together, why not propose to your special someone on All Hallow’s Eve and start the holiday rush on a happy note? Check out these Halloween proposal ideas below!
Many couples want to meet with friends and family soon after their engagement to celebrate the beginning of this exciting new chapter, and holiday dinners and get-togethers offer the perfect opportunity. Halloween proposals also leave a lot of room for creative, memorable gestures that lead to wonderful engagement stories. Here are a few ideas for proposing on Halloween.
Say It With Pumpkins
To make your proposal and create romantic seasonal ambiance in one move, arrange a set of carved jack o’lanterns or festively painted pumpkins to spell out “Will you marry me?” where your intended is sure to find them. Follow her in to present the ring, or set the open ring box in front of your display.
A rose gold engagement ring will gleam beautifully in candlelight and echo the warm hues of the pumpkins, yet radiate elegance all year long.
Bobbing for Diamonds
The Halloween tradition of bobbing for apples lends itself perfectly to a traditional bended knee proposal. As you move toward the floor, your beloved will think you’re simply participating in a lighthearted party game until the very moment you pull the ring from your coat instead.
If you’re adventurous, you could even arrange for the ring to be hidden among the apples and discovered during the gameplay—just make sure it’s in a waterproof container and ends up in the proper hands!
A Spooky Surprise
For a playful proposal, blindfold your special someone and guide her through an old-fashioned haunted house activity with grape “eyeballs”, cooked spaghetti “brains”, and so on. At the end of the activity, just before removing her blindfold, slip the engagement ring onto her finger.
Place the ring in its box at the bottom of a small, decorated Halloween candy bowl or bucket with an assortment of your partner’s favorite wrapped candies to give as a gift. Once you’ve presented it, ask for a type of candy you didn’t include, prompting discovery of the ring as your sweetheart searches for your request.
Halloween is a wonderful time for unique, memorable marriage proposals. For more tips or assistance choosing the right engagement ring for the one you love, contact Adiamor. Have a safe and happy Halloween!
