They are well designed pieces of metal that act as a barrier between the center stone in your ring in this case a diamond which is quite expensive and any potential hazards.

You could reason and say that the prongs that hold the diamonds in place are sufficient to protect the stones…not necessarily.

If you look at diamond ring settings, you’ll see that apart from channel & flush settings all the others expose the diamonds, which puts them at risk.

Why use diamond ring guards?

The diamond ring guards will help avoid unnecessary repairs to your ring or replacement of your precious diamond.

A diamond ring guard is not only protective.

It is also a way to add more sparkle and personality to your diamond ring design.

One of the other benefits of using a diamond ring guard is that it makes your engagement ring look larger and more impressive.

By adding a band of diamonds around the base of the ring, you can create the illusion of a larger center stone. Additionally, the guard can add extra sparkle and shine to the ring, making it even more eye-catching.

It can be used its own or as part of a diamond ring set...with a diamond engagement and diamond wedding ring.

Diamond ring guards are primarily made from the same metal as the diamond ring setting so that they blend well together.

The only time different metals are used is when you are matching a two-tone ring design.

Classic prong settings and channel settings are the most common designs.

Delicate filigree designs and floral shapes also being popular.

Although it’s a personal choice, most people prefer to have their diamond rings guard soldered on to the ring or rings.

This gives the impression of wearing two or three rings in the case of bridal ring sets.

There are three main types of diamond ring enhancements;

1)Diamond ring enhancers

Which draw attention to the ring but may not offer much protection to your diamonds.

2)Ring guards

Which fit comfortably on both sides of your ring & protect it against damage. They are normally larger than the other two types.

3)Diamond ring wraps

Which encircle your center stone but don’t protect the rest of the ring especially the band.

In terms of cost, the price of a diamond ring guard can vary widely depending on factors such as the size and quality of the diamonds. In addition, the type of metal used, and the complexity of the design. However, there are options available in a wide range of price points, so you should be able to find a guard that fits within your budget.

So how much do diamond rings guards go for, well, they range between $2000 & $2,200.

The smaller & simpler the design, the cheaper it is. The larger & more detailed the design, the more expensive it is.

You can spend less by choosing cubic zirconium or cheap gemstone as the accent stones in your ring guard as opposed to using diamonds.

If you are planning to purchase your ring guard now, consider making it part of a diamond ring set.

This is as opposed to buying your ring now and matching it with a ring guard at a latter date.

It is very likely that your ring design will not be available where you bought it in 6 months to a year.

Thus you’ll have to pay more to have a matching custom ring guard made.
