Three- and five- stone ring
The elegant ring design where stones filed neatly in a row from East to West can have a number of stones, but combinations of three and five are most popular. Different shapes are synergized to produce a joined result greater than the sum.
The side stones' purpose is to draw attention to the center stone's importance (physical or spiritual). They are mirror reflections of each other on both sides of the center. Sides are tilted down, shadowing the shank's curve.
The great majority of side stones are colorless diamonds.
Sometimes called a "Cocktail ring," a cluster ring is a bouquet of shapes and, occasionally, colors that may or may not feature a keystone. Clusters built around a larger center are more traditional.
Those assembled from various shapes to form flower-like arrangements are more decorative in nature and allow for artistic freedom. Harry Winston jewelry pioneered high-end cluster design far beyond "leftover mix" typical in low-end jewelry. Rounds, marquises, and pears are the most popular shapes used in clusters.
