Like any other rings, the engagement ring has three basic parts--the band, the setting, and the gemstone. The band is the round part of the ring that wraps around the finger. Bands can be made out of different materials like platinum, silver, or gold or a mix of metals. For diamond rings, a light-colored band will be perfect as it will allow the diamond to stand out while a gold band will tend to make the diamond yellowish. The setting is that part attached to the band that holds the gemstone in place. It has to be sturdy enough to withstand human activity and time. And of course, the gemstone — which is the centerpiece of the ring. What better gemstone could there be than a perfectly cut diamond. Just like what jewelry brand Hearts on Fire is known for. From the name itself, Hearts on Fire designs rings that exude intensity — fit for a love that cannot be quenched.
Hearts on Fire is available at Shreve & Co. in Portland, Oregon.
