Engagement Ring Styles
Choose an engagement ring style
Now that we’ve examined the anatomy of an engagement ring, we can see how different variations of the individual elements come together to form different styles. Although the style you choose is ultimately a personal preference and each is as beautiful as the next, each style tends to lend itself to a specific personality and fashion. Let’s take a closer look at the main overall styles for engagement rings:
For the elegant and classy woman, the timeless solitaire engagement ring showcases a single magnificent center stone as the ultimate symbol of refinement and pure, dazzling love.
Kate Upton, Lauren Conrad, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Obama, Keira Knightley, Mila Kunis.
The pave’ engagement ring is a modern interpretation of the classic solitaire. Iconic in its own right, the glimmering side stones offer a bright and beautiful complement to the center stone, perfect for the contemporary and sophisticated woman.
Blake Lively, Julianne Hough, Beyoncé, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Victoria Beckham.
A halo engagement ring is the choice for the fashion-forward, charming socialite. The small row of diamonds enhances the sparkle of the ring, adding to the illustriousness and sparkle of the center stone.
Amy Adams, Natalie Portman, Kelly Rowland, Carrie Underwood.
A center stone is flanked by two side stones forming a trinity, representing your past present and future together. Honor the adventurous woman who boldly takes control of her life and follows her ambitions with a 3-stone engagement ring.
Nicole Kidman, Gisele Bundchen, Jennifer Garner, Kate Hudson.
For the romantic and traditional woman with an appreciation for unique and historic treasures, the vintage or antique engagement ring suits her well. They often draw inspiration from various time periods and contain diamonds with modern diamond cuts, which maximize fire, brilliance, and light reflective properties.
Jessica Biel, Ashlee Simpson, Pippa Middleton, Kate Moss, Miranda Kerr.
Is the woman in your life unconventional, making her own way and paying no mind to the whims of others? Does she have a style of her own that is artistic, natural, or whimsical? Then nothing but a one-of-a-kind engagement ring with elements that embody her unique spirit will do.
