Diamond accents are diamonds that are smaller than the main gemstone on a piece of jewelry. They are typically adjacent to the primary setting and serve to highlight the piece.
Most diamond accents are very small. They are often diamond chips alongside a solitaire stone in a ring, bracelet or other piece of jewelry. Diamond accents are also popular on watches.
Both triangular and single cuts are used to create diamond accents, as are tapered and straight baguettes. When diamonds are selected as accents, they must match one another in both clarity and color in order to be used on the same piece.
