Getting engaged is definitely one of the most special and memorable events in life, and the perfect ring is the cherry on top! But with hundreds of designs out there, how do you know where to begin when looking at engagement ring styles? If your other half told you they’d like a princess cut halo, would you know what you’re looking for? These days it’s much more about the individual taste and style. Finding the right ring style is possible with endless options to match your personal taste.

So whether you’re choosing your own engagement ring or looking for inspiration for the perfect piece for your proposal, I created a guide to some of the most beautiful ring styles I have seen on my brides.

FINDING THE ENGAGEMENT RING FOR YOUR PERSONAL STYLE

Colorful stones

Thinking outside the box, bringing colorful stones to a ring set can be fun. It can be the perfect complement to a diamond engagement ring or great as a standalone ring too. Colored stones can give rings a unique and personal feel, whether it’s using your favorite stone, your birthstone, or simply your favorite color. Some popular colored stones for engagement rings include blue and teal sapphires, rubies, emeralds, and morganite.

Art deco style

These rings are pretty and feminine, all while being bold. The Art Deco ring style usually includes baguette-cut stones, fanned motifs, and geometric shapes. They make a big statement, and have an artistic look to them! Art Deco jewelery started in the 1920s and has made its way back in the current 20s – let’s get the gold going and channel our inner ‘Great Gatsby’ vibe.

Classic and minimalist

If you wear understated, minimalist jewelry in your everyday life, you may want your engagement ring to follow that pattern. A fine, thin band in a classic metal like yellow gold, rose gold, or platinum and a solitaire diamond creates a beautifully simple, classic, and minimalistic finish. If you ever fancy it, it is also a perfect ring for stacking with other dainty jewelry. It is also easy to clean and repair, and will always be comfortable to wear. And as you can imagine – minimalist rings never go out of style.

CHOOSING A RING DESIGN

Stacked rings

The stacked rings have been around for a while. In fact, in the Scandinavian region, it’s common for women to wear three rings:

  • One for engagement
  • One for marriage
  • And one for motherhood

It also became very fashionable now as well as meaningful. Giving you a chance to add and switch bands to express personal style, or to mark important moments in time. The perfect anniversary gift!

Heirloom and vintage

Vintage jewelry is usually defined as being more than 30 years old. It is often all about delicate details, with lacy designs, unusual diamond cuts, and floral motifs all combining together, creating a beautiful, feminine look. When looking for a vintage ring, you may discover a large range of ruby and sapphire engagement rings. You may also have a family heirloom that’s been passed from generation to generation. Some couples use the ring as is, while others may use an older stone placed in a new setting!
