Considering the importance and symbolic value of engagement jewelry, it is normal that whoever chooses it is anxious to know if behind the beauty there is a meaning that can represent the love they feel, because at the end that is the motto of such an important engagement.
Let's unravel the 5 diamond ring meaning for you, the different facets of each configuration and how to choose one that suits you.
As the name suggests, a 5 stone diamond ring is the setting of 5 diamonds in a metal band. They are mainly made in platinum, rhodium or solid gold (between 18 and 14 carats). The stones can range from a large central one and 4 small ones, to an increasing succession. It all depends on the design.
If the 5 gemstones are large enough to cover the entire top of the wearer's finger they are known as half band rings. This is due to their resemblance to an Eternity ring.
Although there is no unbreakable rule about who may or may not wear certain designs, 5 stone rings are usually purchased primarily for three uses:
A 5 stone engagement ring is a piece of jewelry that aims to make a great visual impact and a very good first impression. They are usually much more affordable than a solitaire diamond band because they do not have all the attention concentrated on a single stone, which allows to play with the clarity, color, size or cut of the diamonds, as a consequence, the price becomes more manipulable.
Beyond that, multi-stone designs are elegant and unexpected. Perfect for brides who tinker with vintage, but don't fit a classic or traditional standard. It's a piece of jewelry that from the first moment you see it you can't stop looking at.
To make a 5 stone engagement ring even more classic, some prefer to set a much larger center diamond and the remaining 4 stones on the sides. Simulating a classic 3 gemstone configuration.
Either way, they make a great engagement band. Timeless, beautiful and elegant.
When it comes to 5-stone wedding bands, the best alternative may be a design where each of the stones is the same size. Half band designs are quite popular.
The main idea of a wedding band with multiple stones is to stack such a band with other simpler, or lone center stone rings, as it is frequent on engagement rings. This will create an amazing effect giving a lot of versatility to the wedding jewelry.
A 5 stone wedding band will not overshadow other jewelry on the fingers, but it will not be overshadowed either. It can be an interesting idea if the bride-to-be likes to mix and match her jewelry.
Both for the first year and for the fifth a 5 diamond ring is a great alternative. In the first case it is used to commemorate all that is to come in the first half of the decade, so decisive in a relationship. For the fifth year of marriage, a diamond succession will nicely symbolize the journey in your relationship and the endurance of your bonds through the years.
Whatever your particular situation, both are excellent choices. This is a fresh design that plays with the seasons and survives time. A ring like this is a meaningful gift like few others.
Even the minimalist designs with 5 diamonds are quite striking compared to other models of the same weight. They are jewelry meant to be shown off so they go well to commemorate important moments.
✔ The five stones, represent the stages of evolution in traditional couples: getting to know each other, friendship, courtship, engagement and marriage.
The 5 diamond engagement ring does not have a defined meaning. You may find this disappointing, but compared to other pieces, this leaves a blank canvas on which you can draw that special meaning you want it to have.
Although it will depend on the artisan and the client as to the reason for the ring, some meanings that are often attributed to them have been:
The most important values in a relationship according to the couple such as understanding, communication, tolerance, patience and love.
In the end, it will be up to each one to decide what the jewelry they wear means, but as you can see, in the case of this particular design the options are extensive and interesting.
All possible ring configurations have certain details to take into account when determining how suitable they are for your style and budget.
