The best part is that these diamonds are ethically sourced, making it a very sustainable choice. “Other than the centre stone, there are a few stones affixed to the sides of the ring — compact and tapered baguette diamonds.  Priyanka’s engagement ring is a three-stone setting ring, representing a karmic connection to the past, present, and future of the couple’s relationship.
