Expert Guide to Engagement Ring Styles

An engagement ring is a significant purchase, so it’s only natural to do your research before making a commitment. The good news is that shopping for beautiful bridal jewelry is easy, provided that you understand the lingo. Keep reading for Azzi Jewelers’ expert guide to engagement ring styles, along with tips on finding a look she’s sure to adore.

Get to Know the Top Engagement Ring Looks

When it comes to ring shopping, choosing a setting is only the first step. You also have to find a diamond style that honors her beauty and uniqueness. Here are some of the most popular engagement ring looks among 21st century brides.

Solitaire Rings

French for alone, solitaires stand apart from the crowd. Simple yet dazzling, this ring design is typically set high for better light exposure. As a bonus, you can choose from a wide range of shapes, including classic round diamonds, standout princess styles, and fashion-forward options like pear-shaped and marquise stones. Solitaries are a wonderful choice if you want to make the diamond the star of the show.

Side Stone Rings

Independent-minded brides may appreciate a side stone ring, thanks to the extensive opportunities for customization. Available in a wide range of styles, including split shanks, and infinity bands, these stones allow the wearer to showcase her personality, from the bold to the romantic and everything in between.

Halo Rings

Is your bride to be an angel? If so, why not honor her with a ring celebrating celestial beauty. Halo style rings feature a dazzling center gem surrounded by a halo, or circle, of smaller diamonds. As a result, the main stone shines especially bright. We’re particularly fond of the blooming floral halos, which are set to be a top look for 2021.

Three Stone Rings

What’s better than one diamond? Three diamonds. Also called the trinity ring, this look is ensuring a popularity renaissance. With three stones symbolizing a couple’s past, present, and future, there’s plenty of opportunity for customization. Consider choosing side stones in her birthstone or favorite color or opt for a shape that’s less expected, such as a pear or marquise.

Cathedral Rings

For the woman who loves to make an impression wherever she goes, consider a cathedral style ring. Featuring a shank that curves upwards, this setting adds height and drama to a diamond, so it’s sure to get noticed wherever she goes. Traditional yet fashionable, a cathedral ring might be just the thing to make her swoon.
