Solitaire Engagement Rings
A classic for a good reason, the solitaire engagement ring is perfect for the traditionalist. Usually claw set with a simple metal, all the focus is on the diamond with no need for any extra decoration. These are undoubtedly one of the most popular engagement ring settings out there, thanks to their simple yet extraordinary sparkle. Celebrities like Mila Kunis and Lauren Conrad are known for saying yes to a solitaire engagement ring.
Halo Engagement Rings
It’s easy to see why halo engagement rings have become so popular with their extraordinary array of diamonds that instantly capture attention. The halo setting consists of a centre stone surrounded by small pave diamonds, a clever technique that makes the smaller stone in the middle look more impressive than if it stood alone. If celebrities like Natalie Portman and Jessica Biel can’t resist a halo engagement ring, then neither can we.
Trilogy Engagement Rings
Despite being two years since the engagement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the iconic trilogy engagement ring remains just as popular. These stunning diamond rings consist of a three stone setting with the shapes and sizes of the diamonds differing with every design. You can also find variations of these rings to include other precious gemstones like rubies, sapphires or emeralds.
Oval Engagement Rings
A variety of the solitaire engagement ring, the oval setting consists of a single solitaire cut diamond shaped into an elegant oval. Worn by the likes of Blake Lively and more recently wife of Justin Bieber, Hailey Baldwin, oval engagement rings are perfect for elongating the fingers and provide an unmissable sparkle thanks to the four claw settings which allows plenty of light to access the stone.
Pavé Engagement Rings
For the girl wants to sparkle endlessly, a pave engagement ring will get you an instant yes. Pavé translated from French means ‘pavement’ which describes the way lots of small diamonds are used to decorate almost the entirety of the ring. Most pavé engagement rings feature a large stone in the centre surrounded by smaller diamonds across the band while more extravagant designs even include pave diamonds on the underside of the band.
Teardrop or Pear Engagement Rings
The graceful curves of the pear shaped engagement ring have made them instant favourites this year. With both a feminine and sophisticated look that beautifully elongates the fingers, the teardrop and pear diamond sparkles beautifully on the fingers of celebrities like Ariana Grande and Cardi B. Teardrop engagement rings look particularly striking when a paired with pave diamonds across the band for an unmissable, sophisticated sparkle.
