Modern Engagement Ring Settings

While traditional settings are stunning, some people want something just a little more ornate. Modern engagement ring settings are sleek and stand out. With a combination of trendy and contemporary, modern engagement rings are bold and unforgettable!

Modern Engagement Ring Designs

Contemporary engagement rings use modern technology to create unique ways to center the diamond adding a bold, original look to their rings.

If you are looking for a unique modern engagement ring, add an accent gem like a beautiful sapphire. There are many different ways to set accent gems, including channel, bezel, burnish, bead, invisible set, and pave. Each of these settings gives the side gems a slightly different look, allowing more or less light to enter the gem by using more or less metal. No matter what way the accent gems are set, they offer a rich accent to the center diamond.
