So, we’re assuming that you’ve heard of Feng Shui. Perhaps you even believe that there is something to this ancient Chinese interior decorating philosophy that involves terms like yin and yang, Taoism, and chi. According to Feng Shui, having objects with positive “chi” in your environment may help you prosper while objects with negative “chi” won’t do much at all to improve your life. If you’re not familiar with the term “chi”, it basically just means energy. If you ask me, a strong cup of coffee gives me some incredible chi. But what do I know…
So what on earth does Feng Shui have to do with solitaire engagement rings? Well, truth be told, you can apply principles of Feng Shui to just about anything you want, including your hair and other things that you wear (Dr. Suess anyone? … anyone?). And since an engagement ring is something you’ll wear for the rest of your life, you want to make sure that it offers you the most positive “chi” possible.
Solitaire Engagement Rings
A diamond solitaire engagement ring may be best possible choice when consulting the rules of feng shui. Since a diamond solitaire ring has only one diamond, it indicates that the bride is “the one and only” love of the groom and vice versa (not a difficult concept to grasp). The energy of one large diamond is very strong and clear, so a diamond solitaire speaks to clarity of purpose, strength of love, dedication, fidelity and even honesty. Within the solitaire tradition, you have the choice of going with a classic solitaire setting, a rose gold solitaire setting, a flat edge solitaire setting, and many more.
When it comes to solitaire engagement rings, an even better feng shui rule to follow is to have one big stone in the center and smaller stones around it. Once again, this is because having one big stone in the center speaks to clarity of purpose. A setting such as the Pave Engagement Setting for Round Diamond could indicate that the relationship between two spouses is the most important thing for them both while other smaller things in life serve to enhance it. A setting such as the Pave Knife Edge Engagement Setting could indicate that the road of life might be paved with small gems, but the one in the center i.e., the relationship, is the most important.
There are many gemstones to choose from when selecting an engagement ring, but a diamond is considered to have the most powerful Feng Shui-ness since it is the “king of stones.” After all, diamonds are the strongest known substance available in nature. If you incorporate Feng Shui, you may assume that every relationship may be strengthened by the good “chi” that a diamond engagement ring confers.
