Celebrity Engagement Ring Style: East-West Setting
Neil Lane Jewelry
If you loved Rachel McAdams’s wedding ring in “The Time Traveler’s Wife,” you are probably a fan of the East-West engagement ring setting.
Most traditional engagement rings feature a diamond facing North and South. An alternative way to wear a diamond is with the stone lying horizontally. This setting has a classic vintage appeal and was most popular during eras when fewer accents were used on the sides of the center stone.
Catherine Zeta-Jones wears a Fred Leighton designed ten-carat marquis diamond with an East-West setting, and “Bachelor” Jason Mesnick proposed to Melissa Rycroft with an East-West three-carat marquis diamond by Neil Lane.
