Engagement ring breakdown: the most popular styles

When it comes to engagement rings, the sky is the limit in terms of styles and designs. Choosing the best engagement ring really comes down to the individual personality and style of your significant other. From modern to classic to unique, here’s a breakdown of some of the most popular looks to put on her finger this year.

Solitaire

Perhaps considered the eternally timeless design, solitaire rings refer to styles that feature a single “solitary” stone that sits front and center on the band. Solitaire rings exude a minimalist feel that goes with everything, never goes out of style, and can be passed down from generation to generation. By featuring a single stone, solitaire settings highlight the cut of choice. Popular cuts for solitaire rings include round cut, princess (square) cut, emerald cut, pear cut, and marquise cut.

Halo

Once you’ve chosen a center stone, a popular addition is a ring of tiny gems surrounding the stone, forming a halo. Diamond-on-diamond styles are common for a glitzy, sparkly effect. However, any gemstone could form a halo around a solitaire stone. Halo rings are ideal for the women who loves the classic nature of a solitaire but wants a little extra bling.

Side stones

To get the most dazzle on your engagement ring, opt for a band that features side stones lining the band. These stones could either go part way around the band, or circle around the entire finger. Side stones are super eye-catching and give the ring the ultimate level of flash. Stones can be either small pavé gems, rectangular baguettes, or some other customized design. Most often seen in diamond, side stones can also feature emeralds, sapphires, or more, for a truly unique piece.

Multi-stone

When one stone just isn’t enough, look for an engagement ring that combines multiple large stones on the band. Popular styles are three-stone designs, where the center stone is slightly larger than the side two. Add small stones along the band for a fully covered ring that’s sure to get noticed. Multi-stone rings are a great option for women who want to incorporate gems other than diamonds. Colored stones can be a true complement to the center diamond.

Vintage-inspired

For the woman who loves an antique look, shop for a ring that has a vintage-inspired design. Many of these rings showcase intricate carvings, engravings, or other details to give them an heirloom appearance. Specific cuts of stones can replicate particular periods of time, such as Art Deco or Victorian Era. Many vintage rings are made with yellow gold to replicate the style of years past.
