Accented Lab Grown Diamond Engagement Rings

Accented Lab Diamond Engagement Rings are becoming increasingly popular among those looking for a modern twist for their engagement rings. These designs have additional diamonds or gemstones generally set on either side of the main gemstone. Accented lab diamond engagement rings come in a variety of designs and can create the perfect vintage aesthetic, as well as styles that are more modern.

The history of accented engagement rings can be traced back to ancient times. The practice of giving a ring as a symbol of betrothal dates back to ancient Egypt, where rings made of woven plant materials were exchanged between couples. In ancient Rome, it became customary to present two rings – one made of iron to be worn at home and one made of gold to be worn in public.

During the Renaissance period, diamonds began to gain popularity as engagement ring stones, and the concept of accent stones started to emerge. As diamond cutting techniques improved, smaller diamonds were used to accentuate the central diamond to add more brilliance to the ring.

Accented engagement rings continued to evolve throughout the 20th century, adapting to changing fashion trends and design aesthetics and are the ideal design if you want to break tradition and add a bit of colour to your engagement ring. However, it is best to not choose coloured stones based solely on aesthetics. It is important to consider other factors, such as a gemstone's durability, clarity, and overall performance. This is due to the fact that not all gemstones are as particularly hard as diamonds. Meaning they are more likely to scratch or chip which can lead to stones potentially falling out of their setting. 

Accented lab diamond engagement rings reflect more values than ever before, while offering a luxurious choice. Lab created diamonds mean you can be sure that your diamond was sustainably and ethically produced, and still benefit from the brilliance and fire of the traditional mined diamond.

Here are some benefits and features of diamond accented rings:

1. Enhanced sparkle: Diamond accents add extra brilliance and shine to the ring. The smaller diamonds surrounding or beside the centre stone create a stunning display of light.

2. Unique designs: Diamond accents can be used in various designs, such as pave settings, halo settings, or side stone settings. These designs give the ring a distinct and eye catching look.

3. Affordable option: Diamond accented rings are typically more affordable than rings with a single large diamond. The use of smaller diamonds instead of a large centre stone helps to reduce the overall cost without compromising on style or elegance.

4. Versatile style choices: Diamond accents can be paired with different gemstones, metals, and ring styles to suit individual preferences. Whether it's a vintage inspired design or a modern and minimalistic look, diamond accents can complement any style.

A diamond accented engagement ring is also the ring of choice for many high profile people including Kate Middleton, Blake Lively, Kim Kardashian, Olivia Wilde and Jennifer Aniston.

What are the pros and cons of an accented diamond engagement ring? 

Overall, accented diamond engagement rings can be a stunning and unique choice for someone who wants a ring that stands out and adds extra sparkle and visual interest.

Are accented diamond engagement rings easy to pair with a wedding band?

Accented lab diamond engagement rings are extremely versatile and can easily pair with most standard wedding bands. Similarly, a diamond set wedding band will give extra sparkle and brilliance to the overall look when both rings are worn together. It is also possible to find matching or coordinating wedding bands specifically designed to complement the size and shape of the accented diamond engagement ring. Ethica offers a stunning collection of link - [bridal sets] where the wedding ring is made to fit perfectly with the shape and design of the engagement ring, creating a cohesive and stunning bridal set.

How do lab grown diamonds compare to mined diamonds in terms of brilliance and sparkle, especially when paired with accent stones?

Lab grown diamonds possess the same exceptional brilliance and fire (sparkle) as mined diamonds, thanks to their identical chemical composition. In fact, some argue lab grown stones can achieve even higher clarity due to the controlled environment in which they're created. When paired with ethically sourced lab grown accent stones, the result is a ring that explodes with dazzling beauty. At Ethica, we meticulously select high-quality lab grown diamonds and accent stones to ensure a flawless and harmonious look. The result is a ring that will captivate hearts, both for its aesthetic value and its ethical story.

Here's why lab grown diamonds create such a dazzling display when paired with accent stones:

Scientifically Identical: Since lab grown diamonds share the same physical and optical properties as mined diamonds, their light refraction patterns are identical. This ensures a seamless interplay of light between the centre stone and accent stones, creating a unified brilliance.

Customisable Fire and Sparkle: The cut of both the centre stone and accent stones plays a significant role in how light interacts with them. At Ethica, we offer a variety of cuts for both, allowing you to tailor the overall fire and sparkle of the ring to your preference. For instance, pairing a round brilliant cut centre stone with princess cut accents can create a captivating contrast in sparkle patterns.

By carefully selecting lab grown diamonds and accent stones, we ensure a ring where every element complements each other, resulting in a breathtaking display of light and beauty.

What are the ethical advantages of choosing a lab grown diamond with accent stones?

At Ethica Diamonds, we believe in beauty that shines both inside and out. Choosing a lab grown diamond centre stone eliminates the environmental and social concerns associated with traditional diamond mining. But what about the accent stones? We understand the allure of an accented ring, and that's why we use only ethically sourced, lab grown accent stones as well. This ensures a ring that's not only stunningly beautiful but also reflects your commitment to ethical and sustainable practices. It showcases our dedication to providing conflict-free diamonds throughout the entire ring, allowing you to celebrate your love story with a clear conscience.

However, the ethical benefits go beyond just peace of mind. Accented lab grown diamonds elevate the aesthetics of your ring in several ways:

Enhanced Brilliance: Carefully chosen accent stones can frame and amplify the fire (sparkle) of your centre stone, creating a dazzling play of light that's truly captivating.

Visual Interest and Detail: Accents add a layer of complexity and design to the ring. This can be particularly striking with contrasting coloured accent stones, or with geometric patterns formed by the accent placement.

Proportion and Balance: Accent stones can help to visually balance the design, particularly for larger centre stones. They can also create the illusion of a bigger centre stone, adding a touch of grandeur.

Ultimately, ethically sourced lab grown accent stones allow you to create a stunningly beautiful ring that reflects your values and celebrates your love story in a way that's kind to both people and the planet.

What are the care and cleaning considerations for a lab grown diamond engagement ring with accent stones?

While lab grown diamonds are incredibly durable, proper care will ensure your ring continues to sparkle for generations to come. Here's what you need to know about cleaning your accented lab grown diamond engagement ring:

Routine Cleaning: You can clean your ring at home using a mild dish soap and lukewarm water. Gently brush the ring with a soft-bristled toothbrush, paying particular attention to the areas around the stones where dirt and grime can accumulate. Rinse thoroughly with clean water and pat dry with a soft cloth.

Professional Cleaning: It's recommended to have your ring professionally cleaned and inspected by a jeweler every one to two years. A jeweller can use specialised equipment to ensure a deeper clean and check the security of the settings.

Storage: When not wearing your ring, store it in a soft pouch or jewellery box to prevent scratches. Avoid storing it with other gemstones, especially harder stones like sapphires, which could scratch the diamonds.

By following these simple steps, you can ensure your beautiful accented lab grown diamond engagement ring continues to be a cherished symbol of your love story.
