The engagement rings settings retail for between $1,890 and $3,100, and the Rayana bands are priced between $1,460 and $4,340.

This 14-karat gold two-tone wedding band is from Kirk Kara’s new “Rayana collection.” It features approximately 0.38 carats of diamonds and milgrain edging ($4,340).

New styles also included rings with graduated halos, wherein clusters of diamonds in the halo setting were larger than others. 
 
In a new marquise ring, for example, the pave diamonds were slightly bigger around each point of the stone to really make it pop. 
 
Perfect for today’s brides are the brand’s new abstract cluster engagement rings and bands with mixed fancy cut diamonds. For the more traditional bride the brand had new solitaire styles.
