How to Wear Diamond Rings When You Have an Active Lifestyle

Diamond Ring with Emeralds

Diamond rings are beautiful, one-of-a-kind creations that are precious and delicate, but they can still fit into your active lifestyle. Whether you spend your weekends on Lake Michigan, love to swing a golf club, or spend lots of time with your children, you can have your jewelry and be active, too! Preusser Jewelers takes a look at how to wear diamond rings when you have a busy lifestyle.

Low Settings

High-profile settings for diamond rings often get in the way of an active lifestyle. Tall settings can snag on clothing, scratch your children, or become damaged after hitting surface after surface. A lower setting keeps the diamond out of harm’s way and reduces the chances of accidents happening when you’re out and about.

Bezel Setting

A bezel setting protects the gem in a diamond ring without sacrificing the size of the stone. Bezeling features a metal band to completely encircle the gem to protect it from chipping. This style also keeps the gem close to the band without raising it very much. A bezel setting brings out the depth of the gemstone’s character and plays with light just as well as other settings.

Thick Band

Leave dainty, thin bands behind when you have an active lifestyle. Thick bands for diamond rings can be more resilient and less delicate, compared to a small band. Chipping on a thin band affects the entire ring more so than a thick band. Having a thick band reduces the chances of a complete break, and it allows you to get the ring repaired before further damage occurs.

Six Prongs

Standard solitaire diamond rings have four prongs to keep the gem in place. Consider settings with six prongs to make the diamond more secure. If one prong breaks on a four-pronged setting, the diamond could fall out and become lost. Six prongs allow for one prong to weaken or break while keeping the stone in place.
