What is a 5 Stone Diamond Ring?

You're probably familiar with a basic diamond band, or a diamond engagement ring, right? Perhaps you're even accustomed to a three-stone engagement ring, which features two bright, brilliant diamonds flanking your choice of center stone? Well, picture this: a bold row of diamonds that stretches the width of your finger, kind of like a support circle of your favorite blinged out friends.

Five stone anniversary rings (because they've historically been given as anniversary gifts to commemorate ongoing love and commitment) typically feature five similarly-sized diamonds or gemstones set in an even row across the top of the finger. Sometimes these are set in slightly graduated sizes, with a larger stone at the center, tapering outward.

Now, the five stone ring is certainly nothing new. In fact, the history of these rings dates back to the Victorian era when people decided that jewelry should mean a little something more than displaying expensive taste. Sentimentally, the five stones can stand for five symbols: love, trust, friendship, loyalty, and commitment. Or they've often stood for a 5 year anniversary, one diamond for each of the five years of marriage. While you can really give or wear them for any occasion, the beautiful way style of a 5 stone ring is often a gift between couples celebrating a lifetime of love.

How to Choose Your 5 Stone Diamond Ring

Like choosing any diamond or gemstone band or engagement ring, you can start with learning a bit about the 4Cs — cut, color, clarity, and carat weight — as these often dictate much of diamond pricing. However, one of the biggest choices when it comes to a five stone rings is in stone shape.

Classic 5 stone diamond rings often can often be found featuring round diamonds, which is a timeless, elegant choice.

This cut of diamond was worn for many centuries, and sparkles with a unique, rainbow flash that harkens back to olden days. Trust us, their warmth and shine is truly something to behold.
