- Filigree. One of the most delicate types of metalwork in jewelry, filigree can include small beading, twisted threads or a combo of both to produce artistic, often lace-like features in engagement rings.
- Hand Engraving. The hand engraving you’ll find in this collection can include leaf patterns, floral etching, scrolling patterns and personal messages on the inner or outer band.
- Unique Shapes & Settings. From colorful clusters of stones to the shapes in which they’re arranged, there are many happy surprises in this unique collection!
