What Defines a Cluster Engagement Ring Style?
As the name implies, cluster engagement rings are defined by an assortment of stones arranged in a cluster form. Sometimes, the idea is for a collection of smaller stones to cluster together to look like a larger unit.
Other cluster engagement rings use a variety of different gemstones and stone sizes to create asymmetrical, unique compositions that create a unique and customized look.
What Types of Stones are Commonly Seen in Cluster Engagement Rings?
Many cluster rings will incorporate diamonds in some shape or form, whether as small accents or the entire cluster setting. That said, we’re seeing a growing trend in gemstones taking over this ring style, and we couldn’t love it more!
The Difference Between Modern and Vintage Cluster Engagement Ring Styles
Many vintage cluster engagement rings incorporate a symmetrical design, whereas modern rings are really embracing the asymmetrical vibe.
For example, many vintage cluster rings were created to resemble flowers, with little stones making up the flower petals. That type of look tends to lean towards the symmetrical.
On the other hand, the asymmetrical look common in modern cluster rings has more of an abstract take.
How to Care for a Cluster Engagement Ring
When caring for your cluster engagement ring, you’ll need to take into account the type of stones it’s made of. The way you care for diamonds, for example, will be different than the way you care for emeralds. Some stones are more durable than others, and that translates into your care and cleaning of the ring.
We highly recommend consulting with your ring designer on the best way to care for and clean your ring. That includes cleaning solutions, as well as cleaning tools like brushes! They will be able to explain what the best choice is for your particular ring.
How to Find a Good Wedding Band for a Cluster Engagement Ring
Finding a good wedding band to pair with a cluster engagement ring can be a challenge, particularly with an asymmetrical design. For symmetrical styles, rings with a dip or curve allow the cluster engagement ring to sit nested above it.
With asymmetrical cluster rings with more unique and abstract designs, we recommend choosing a ring designer who can create a custom band that fits snugly with your engagement ring.
