The Different Types of Engagement Rings That Every Woman Should Be Aware of

wedding ring engagement ring diamond jewelry

Every girl's friends are eager to learn about her engagement ring as soon as she announces it to her circle of friends. In addition to being an important symbol of the couple's commitment to one another, an engagement ring serves as a significant fashion statement for the bride-to-be, which she will wear for the rest of her life.

When it comes to selecting the type of wedding band to surprise their bride-to-be with, some grooms may have a clear idea in mind; however, others may rely on her for guidance. A passing comment while window shopping or a pin on Pinterest—some guys need all the help they can get! As an alternative, many couples discuss marriage long before the proposal, and it is possible that the bride's ring preference will come up during the discussion.

In either case, it's critical for the future bride to be aware of the various types of engagement rings available so that she can communicate (however subtly!) which type of ring best suits her personal taste and preferences.

Here is a primer to assist you in learning about the various types of engagement rings available so that you can make the best decision for your needs and financial situation.

Solitaire Engagement rings

Solitaire engagement rings feature a single stone that is set into the band of the ring, making them one of the most popular settings. Despite the fact that this is a straightforward classic, it can be surprisingly versatile. With no regard to size (a smaller stone can be made to look larger by using an even slimmer band), the sky is the limit in terms of design and cut. The choice of stone is also flexible, as it is determined by personal preference and financial constraints. In fact, because they are simple and have fewer variables, solitaire rings are also the most cost-effective type of engagement ring.

Vintage Engagement rings

Antique rings are excellent choices for those who appreciate the past and the romance of the past. In order to ensure that your vintage engagement ring diamond is conflict-free, we recommend that you opt for a new, vintage-inspired ring rather than an antique one. This is because antique diamonds cannot be verified. Don't be concerned about your options being limited because there are countless rings available that have been inspired by the beautiful aesthetics of bygone eras. If you're interested in vintage fashion, do some research into the various styles of different eras... Is it more important to you to have a sleek, architectural Art Deco engagement ring, or do you prefer the lavish intricacy of Edwardian engagement rings?

Halo Engagement rings

Halo engagement rings are so named because of the "halo," or circle of small stones, that surrounds the center stone on the ring and gives it its distinctive appearance. Halos are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, including round, square, double, drop, and others. Their primary benefit is that they enhance the brilliance of a ring and make the center stone appear larger. This can be a fantastic option for brides on a tight budget, depending on the size and quality of the halo stones used in the design.

Add gemstones to the mix for a more eye-catching engagement ring—a halo of romantic rubies surrounding a diamond, or a line of petite diamonds circling a stunning blue sapphire, for example—to make a statement. It is also possible to design halo rings with a distinctive twist, such as...

  • Unusual diamond cut shape is enclosed within a halo of diamonds.
  • A design that is inspired by flowers (pictured above)
  • A look with a mix of metals

Three-Stone Engagement rings

In situations where a single stone will not suffice, a three-stone setting provides a little more flexibility. There are several variations of this setting, but the most common is one that has a central stone flanked by two side stones. Depending on the bride's preference, these stones can be the same size or slightly smaller, and they can be diamonds or gemstones.

What distinguishes the three-stone ring from the rest, however, is not just its appearance, but also its symbolism. Each stone represents the past, present, and future of a relationship, making it a beautiful and romantic gesture on the part of the giver and receiver.

Side Stone Engagement rings

Side stone engagement rings aren't always triplets! The traditional three-stone ring isn't the only one with more than three side stones, especially vintage gemstone and custom ring designs. Side stones are a great way to personalize a ring.

The more side stones a ring has, the more likely it is to come loose, especially if you are active and use your hands frequently at work or at home. Your lifestyle is often just as important to choosing a ring as your fashion sense!
