Step aside, pavé. There’s a new line of diamonds in town! Graduated diamonds are on the rise. We’re seeing more women stray from the matchy-matchy look of all-one-size diamonds and opt for a little more variety in their stones.
A graduated style is one that features an array of diamonds — usually round cuts — that gradually gets larger or smaller. The most common example is in a ring. The diamonds in the band gradually get larger or smaller as they approach the center stone. However, you can find graduated styles in necklaces, bracelets, earrings and even in halos.
This design element is all the rage because it’s more expressive and luxurious than a uniform row of diamonds. The evolution of the design creates suspense within the piece and has more elegant allure. To see how this trend manifests itself in several kinds of jewelry, check out these styles featuring graduated diamonds.
Uneek Round Diamond Non-Halo Engagement Ring with Graduated Melee Diamonds Shared-Prong Set on Upper Shank
The most common place you’ll see graduated diamonds is in engagement ring bands. Traditionally, the diamonds along the band will gradually get larger as they approach the center diamond, but Uneek women aren’t satisfied with conventional approaches only. So we reversed the traditional look of this style and set the diamonds to gradually become larger as they move away from the center diamond. The resulting contrast in size draws the eyes toward the center stone even more and makes the diamond appear even larger.
You can also enjoy graduated grandeur in ring halos. In our Petals Collection, which is inspired by blooming beauties, graduated diamond halos accentuate or even “alter” the shape of the center stone. The halo gives an emerald cut a softer feel by enveloping its sharp corners, it underscores the elongated shape of the marquise cut, and it actually produces the illusion of an oval cut when paired with a classic round cut. Regardless of which style you choose, this type of halo will no doubt make your ring stand out.
Just one of these fashion bands will take your every look to the next level. Adding to the drama are the layers of graduated diamonds, which create subtle movement and up the sparkle factor. The mixture of small and larger diamonds also makes these rings daring and remarkable. The chunkier styles are stunning enough to be worn alone or can be paired with thinner bands for a combo that won’t go unnoticed.
The perfect face-framer, this pair of round cluster dangle earrings is more than dazzling. The three round clusters of diamonds graduate larger in size as they dangle with over 3 carats of diamonds, creating luxurious appeal and a more attention-grabbing look. We especially love these unique earrings because they’re also classic enough to tie any outfit together.
Who said an everyday bracelet had to be boring? Not this diamond bracelet! Tapered bars holding graduated round diamonds create a silhouette that refuses to blend in. Wear it on its own for date night or pair it with a couple of streamlined bracelet designs to make it stand out even more. Find it in rose gold too.
This negligee necklace is the definition of “show-stopping.” It takes the graduated diamond trend to the next level by showcasing not just diamonds that graduate in size but entire teardrop-shaped halos of micropave diamonds that do! They sensually cascade towards the asymmetrical front drops, and as the teardrops get larger, they cradle a round cluster, giving the illusion of larger rounds. Such a luxury is only fit for the most glamorous of occasions – from your upcoming cocktail party to a friend’s extravagant wedding.
