ENGAGEMENT RING STYLES
Choosing an engagement ring, whether you are planning to pop the question, trying to drop hints or choosing together as a couple, is a huge decision. There are so many different styles available now and most people want to find the one that perfectly symbolises their relationship and will be delighted to wear for the rest of their lives.
Because we know what a big decision this is and that rings can now be as individual as the relationships they symbolise, we take the time to really get to know you and your tastes to help you get that perfect ring. If you are just starting to think about type of engagement ring you might want to buy as a couple or for your beloved, here are a few types of styles to give you an idea of what is available. As we offer a bespoke design service though, don’t let this limit you if you’ve got big exciting ideas.
Traditional & Elegant
A classic solitaire setting is timeless and showcases the center diamond without any distraction. Solitaires, which are rings that feature one center diamond, are the most popular style for engagement rings.
Outdoorsy & Nature Lover
Is your significant other a nature lover or someone who is happiest outdoors? Ring settings with organic elements in their designs such as leaves, vines, and flowers may suit them.
Modern & Contemporary
Does your beloved appreciate a modern, fashion-forward style? Look at sculptural rings – rings that experiment with non-traditional forms.
Stylish & Outgoing
If the wearer wants to dazzle with glamour, they might love a setting that holds their diamond higher, or perhaps one that features sparkling pavé-set diamonds on the band. Halo engagement settings are also popular.
Romantic & Timeless
Does your partner love all things romantic and vintage? Consider ring settings that feature milgrain details, filigree or scrollwork patterns, intricate galleries, or dainty bands.
