Sweet Caroline: All About the Caroline by Vatche
By Devorah Isenberg
Engagement ring design is a balance between dazzle and simplicity, jaw-dropping brilliance and everyday wearability. The perfect engagement ring setting design is both eye-catching and brilliantly beautiful at first impression, as well as comfortable and wearable enough for everyday use.
That’s why in-the-know shoppers turn to Vatche
diamond engagement rings, award-winning designs that are stunning not for their ostentatious embellishment, but for their delicateness and simplicity. Right now, pavé engagement rings are popular, but over-embellished pavé rings encrusted in diamonds can appear gaudy and lack the refined sensibility that will keep a ring enduring and beautiful year after year.
Designs by Vatche rings employ pavé to perfection: a delicate sprinkling of pavé diamonds down the shank of the ring and a simply elegant head create pavé rings that will become lasting family heirlooms.
The Caroline Pavé is one such Vatche engagement ring
. It’s slender profile and simple, secure four-prong diamond setting make it easy to wear everyday. At the same time, ten surprise diamonds hidden in the head and 36 pavé diamonds running down the shank in two channel settings give the Caroline that touch of refined beauty and brilliance for which Vatche jewelry is renowned.
All these melée diamonds
are ranked G/VS, with a total carat weight of .30, making them a perfect backdrop to any high quality center stone diamond of your choosing. The open cathedral style setting helps create a seamless transition from head to shank and gives the ring a distinctive open silhouette from its side profile. This openness gives the Caroline a lightness and breezy elegance not often found in heavier pavé styles, as well as subtly boosting the profile of the center stone and making it even more eye-catching and remarkable.
Of all the choices the would-be engagement ring buyer must make, one of the most difficult is the choice between the simplicity of the solitaire setting and the dazzle of the diamond setting. With the D-Vatche Caroline, the subtle beauty of the solitaire is retained even as the pavé diamonds sparkle brilliantly. It’s what you call the best of both worlds, or a typical design by Vatche.
