Sound Like A Jewelry Expert: Know Your Ring Lingo

Very few people can claim that they know everything about every single type of jewelry. After all, being an expert in the field takes a great deal of know-how and many years of experience. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still come across as someone who knows a thing or two when shopping for jewelry, especially if your clique or significant other is around to impress. So, don’t be left feeling intimidated by ring lingo, just turn to our cheat sheet and you’ll sound like you know jewelry like the back of your hand. Without further ado, here’s what you need to know about any ring design!

 

The Anatomy of a Ring

 

The Setting: This commonly refers to the way that a stone has been mounted and secured to the ring, often the methodology is unique to each jewelry designer’s preference and skillset.

The Shoulder: You can find the shoulder by tracking the rise in a ring’s design, it’s always meant to elegantly connect the shank to the setting.

 

The Shank: This is the part of a ring that extends around the finger and is commonly referred to as the “band”. It can be measured to fit any finger with custom ease.

 

The Halo: These are the smaller gems or materials that usually surround a centre stone for the very best visual impact. The halo can be chosen to suit the wearer’s specific aesthetic and preference.  

 

The Centre Stone: Make no mistake, this is the main (usually largest) gem in a ring which creates its focal feature and is usually a showstopper when a pearl is used.
