LOS ANGELES, Feb. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- For years, King of Jewelry, based in the Los Angeles Jewelry District, has provided high-quality, attractive engagement rings and bridal sets to Southern California customers and beyond. The beautiful loose diamonds in Los Angeles from King of Jewelry are highly graded in terms of the four c's: cut, color, clarity, and carat. Additionally, their engagement ring settings were fashioned with pure imagination and inspiration. The online retailer pays attention to the purchasing trends of customers, and takes cues from the jewelry industry at large, in building an inventory of the most pleasing designs. Now, with the resurgent popularity of jewelry styles of past eras, the leading diamond retailer presents the betrothed couple with an array of vintage-style engagement rings to symbolize their enduring bond. The modern female's proclivity for antique rings and heirloom jewelry is often a result of romances that have unfolded in the public eye. When proposing to Kate Middleton, Prince William offered his longtime girlfriend a gorgeous oval-cut sapphire ring, with white diamonds encircling the center stone. This precious vintage diamond ring belonged to his mother Diana. Musician Gavin Rossdale gave singer Gwen Stefani a vintage-style white gold band encrusted with diamonds which he designed himself. The man planning to pop the question can follow the example of these famous gentlemen by fashioning the perfect vintage-style engagement ring from Los Angeles jeweler King of Jewelry. There are many ways to approach the customization of vintage diamond engagement rings. At times, the customer is in possession of gems sourced from an antique piece of jewelry. If the buyer wants to design a ring for his intended using stones from a family treasure, he may browse King of Jewelry's vast selection of glorious semi-settings. Semi-settings are incomplete settings that may feature diamonds on the band or accenting stones, while the primary center stone is yet to be fixed. There are multiple settings available for all diamond cuts, including round, princess, cushion, and asscher. Perhaps the lucky lady is drawn to follow in the footsteps of a classic Hollywood actress. Elizabeth Taylor was a fan of heart-cut diamonds. King of Jewelry is happy to present pristine heart-cut solitaire engagement rings, heart-cut diamond rings accented with baguettes, or even canary heart engagement rings surrounded with a halo of white diamonds. The classic romantic might long for a flawless princess-cut diamond with half-moon diamonds positioned on either side of the main stone, similar to Audrey Hepburn promise/engagement ring. Others wish for a statement-making ring, like the ever-popular pave halo ring with a sizeable center stone and a double halo. The diamond professionals at King of Jewelry help the customer select the engagement ring that will surpass his loved one's girlish desires. Or, this fantasy ring can be fashioned with your heirloom diamonds, combined with a lovely setting and additional loose diamonds sold by King of Jewelry.
