Getting engaged is one of the biggest milestones you will experience in your relationship, and such an event calls for a special ring. Much thought needs to go into picking the perfect engagement ring, which doesn’t necessarily have to be fully studded in diamonds, or have the most massive stone.
An engagement ring is a daily reminder of this life event for years to come. Since she’s going to wear it every day, this ring needs to suit her tastes and her personality. While we’re willing to bet that she’d say yes to any kind of ring in the name of true love, it won’t hurt to have her sport a gorgeous band on her finger. Get down on one knee with any of these stylish rings—feel free to bookmark for your reference!
Brilliant Round Cut
Does she love the idea of a bright and sparkly ring? The round cut is a classic with good reason—it’s a style that signifies luxury and elegance. It takes skill and precision to create a round cut, resulting in maximum sparkle and brilliance!
You can never go wrong with a classic solitaire ring, where the diamond sits on top of a crown with a sleek and elegant white-gold band.
If you’re looking for something a little more unique, go for a band with a twist, like this beauty that will dance around her finger!
The oval cut is a great choice for women who want to stand out in their own way. This minimalist design offers something a little different than the usual round gemstone.
While diamonds and rings come in all shapes and sizes, higher-quality diamonds are all about the clarity, not the carats. Get down on your knee with a show-stopping ring that radiates like any other! A halo ring features a circle of tiny round gemstones that surrounds the diamond in the center, making the stone look even bigger while adding more sparkle.
This gorgeous classic halo ring exudes glamour and sophistication for the girl who doesn’t mind a little extra bling without going overboard. The halo setting and stones around the bag make this extra radiant once it catches the light!
We love this unique yet subtle take that features a double halo setting that looks like a flower. The various gemstone sizes adds visual interest and personality to the ring, a perfect fit for the girl with graceful confidence.
A Ring with Side Stones
Looking for something a little different than the usual center stone? Consider a ring with side stones. Certain versions, like the three-stone engagement ring, is a popular alternative for those who believe that it symbolizes the past, present, and the future of your relationship. Like the halo ring, side stones add extra dazzle to your ring without having to shell out for a large rock. They also look great on dainty fingers!
If you’re considering a three-stone ring, get them all in the same cut. This stunning three-stone ring features brilliant round-cut diamonds that command just enough attention without being too overwhelming.
Here’s a trendy take for the style-conscious girl: An aquamarine center stone with diamond side stones in a rose gold band. Chic!
Want to gift her with diamonds without burning a hole in your pocket? Make them the accent, not the center of attraction. Moissanite stone is an increasingly popular alternative—it’s harder than ruby, sapphire, or emerald, and is even sparklier than a diamond without its hefty price tag! She will absolutely beam with glee with this extra-radiant ring that features a moissanite at the center, surrounded by tiny diamond stones.
Nothing else says love like a heart-shaped stone! A unique stone cut, this flawless heart shape is a beautiful way to let her know she has your heart.
With a one-of-a-kind symmetrical cut and several layers in the stone, the asscher cut stands on its own. Taken from the Art Deco era, this ring is perfect for the design-forward, independent thinker.
Who says engagement rings have to be in diamond? Feel free to choose one that speaks to her personality.
