There are usually seven parts of a typical engagement ring. These parts are the head, shank, stamp or engraving, center stone, prong, side stones, and accent stones. If you want to be very particular about how your engagement ring looks like, you need to be aware of these parts. In addition, you also need to be knowledgeable on how you want the head to be set. You would also want to know how you want your center stone to be set, how the band around your finger should look, how you want your accent stones to set, and what design features do you want to be included. Also know what shape of your center stone should be like. Should it be oval, round, princess, cushion, emerald, pear, marquise, radiant, heart asscher, or trillion?
