When it comes to engagement or wedding rings, there are so many options to choose from that it can be difficult to decide on the perfect one. But with a little bit of planning and some advice from experts, you can find the perfect ring to reflect your unique style and story.
From contemporary and alternative rings to pieces that are wonderfully simplistic and traditional, it’s important that your engagement and wedding rings become a part of you and embrace every inch of your personality.
With this in mind, we’ve taken a look at 5 of the most popular styles to help you decide which area you fit into and how you can find the perfect rings for your style.
1. Contemporary / Alternative Rings
Contemporary and alternative engagement and wedding rings are becoming more and more popular, as more people want rings that reflect their unique style. These rings shout sophistication and glamour and should perfectly reflect the strong passion that you share in your relationship.
A beautiful example of a contemporary / alternative engagement ring would include elaborate a halo mount with diamond set shoulders and contrasting centre stone (such as sapphires and emeralds) to really set the ring apart. This could be paired with a decadent diamond set wrap wedding ring to ensure the rings work perfectly together.
2. Dainty / Understated Rings
If you prefer a more understated look, then a dainty or minimalist engagement ring might be perfect for you. These rings are typically delicate and understated, with less focus on the diamond and more on the setting.
Many people choose dainty rings to emphasise the natural beauty of their centre stone, as well as to reduce the overall cost of the ring. A dainty engagement ring can also be paired with a simple wedding band to create a stunning and timeless look.
3. Elegant / Twirly Rings
If you are looking for a more elegant and classic look, then a twirly engagement ring might be perfect for you. These rings typically feature a delicate design with lots of intricate details, making them perfect for those who want a ring that really stands out.
Elegant and twirly engagement rings look particularly beautiful with a rose or yellow gold band as these metals help to contrast well against the sparkling diamonds and edgy detailing of the ring itself. They can be paired with a simple band or wrap band wedding or eternity ring to create a stunning set.
4. Simple / Traditional Rings
Simple and traditional engagement rings are typically understated and elegant, with a focus on the diamond itself. They often feature a solitaire diamond with a simple setting and band, making them perfect for those who want a classic and timeless look.
Simple and traditional engagement rings can be paired with a matching pain band wedding ring to create a natural pairing or with a half set diamond wedding ring to give your hand that much loved additional sparkle.
5. Vintage / Decorative Rings
When it comes to vintage or decorative engagement and wedding rings, there are so many beautiful options to choose from. These rings typically feature intricate designs and lots of delicate details, making them perfect for those who want a ring that really stands out.
These particular rings are often based around a pear or emerald cut centre diamond with a cluster of diamonds around the outside of the stone to give it that extra touch of glamour. With vintage / decorative rings, you may choose to opt for a plainer wedding band to ensure the engagement ring really stands out, but often many brides go for more with a diamond set wedding ring for maximum decorative impact.
