A slight turn can change everything. A vintage style plays a tiny trick on your eyes and makes a huge, trendy impact. It’s called an East-to-West Engagement Ring, and it positions the center stone horizontally instead of vertically. This little change makes your fingers look longer and can actually make the stone look bigger.
But, it’s not just the optical illusion that makes the East-to-West arrangement special. It’s a distinctive appearance that catches the eye and harkens back to an earlier time. This style has once again found appeal for brides who love all things “non-traditional.”
This horizontal approach is great for any cut of stone, and lets you get extremely creative with colors and shapes. It’s genuinely a signature look that will be as unique as the woman who wears it.
