An engagement ring with side stone's purpose is to pave the way for the center diamond. The side stones are there to enhance your center stone and are the supporting cast and help your ring be distinguished from any other.

There are two types of side stone settings when it comes to side stones; stones that are set to go across your finger from east to west, and stones that go along your finger from north to south. They can be in any of the following shapes; Trapezoids, Baguettes, Chevrons, Half Moons, Shields, Calf's Heads, Kites, Crescents, Pear shaped, Trillion, Ovals, Marquise, Asscher cut, Emerald cut, Radiant cuts and Rounds.

They are generally cut in two different ways depending on the shape of the stone; Step cut or Brilliant cut, a baguette can be cut in either style.
