Engagement Ring Styles

Posted on Wednesday, June 24th, 2020 in Engagement Rings.

When it comes to selecting an engagement ring, you’ll have to make three primary decisions. The first is which (if any) gemstones you want set into the ring. The second is the type of metal you’d prefer the engagement ring to be made of. And finally, you’ll have to decide what type of engagement ring style you like the most. In today’s blog post, we’ll be covering the top six ring styles so that you can have a better idea of what your dream engagement ring could look like.

  • Solitaire engagement rings feature a single gemstone on a simple band. This popular style of engagement ring never goes out of style, making it an excellent option for someone looking for an engagement ring that will stand the test of time. Due to its simplistic design, couples can allocate more money towards the center gem instead of having to spend a larger portion of their budget on a more complicated band.

  • Diamond accented engagement rings include any ring set with diamonds, either on the band or on the head (the portion of the engagement ring that holds the center gemstone). The accented diamonds complement the center gemstone(s) and add extra sparkle to the ring. They can be set in either a single row or multiple rows. The classic single row version is the most popular, but variations of the multiple row engagement ring, including the twisted shank version offer even more sparkle and are increasing in popularity.

  • Halo engagement rings have gemstones (typically diamonds) that surround the center gemstone. This makes the gemstone appear larger than it actually is, while also adding extra sparkle to the ring. Most halos surround the entire gem, but some halos only go around a portion of the gemstone, creating a distinctive look (see unique engagement ring at the bottom of the page).

  • Three stone engagement rings highlight three central gemstones instead of one. Oftentimes, the gemstone in the middle will be slightly larger than the two gems on the side. Said to represent the couple’s past, present, and future, three stone engagement rings have become increasingly popular in recent years, especially ever since Prince Harry proposed to Meghan Markle with this style of engagement ring.

  • Vintage engagement rings showcase designs that were popular many years ago, typically during the Victorian, Art Nouveau, Edwardian, and Art Deco eras. They offer one-of-a-kind detail and tend to feature beautiful, ornate designs.
