Choosing an engagement ring can be extremely overwhelming! This is the one piece of jewelry that you will wear everyday for the rest of your life...no pressure! When our clients come in for their custom engagement ring appointment, we always ask that they send us a few inspiration photos prior. It's important to have an idea of the style ring you want, before getting to your appointment. There are so many styles out there, and in this post we highlight the most popular engagement ring styles right now!

Solitaire Diamond Engagement Ring

You just can't go wrong with a solitaire diamond engagement ring! Solitaire diamonds are round shaped, they are super classic and will always be in style. You're going to wear this ring forever, so you want to make sure that the style you choose is something that you're going to love and not just like it right now. With a solitaire diamond you can be assured that they will always be in style.

There are plenty of ways to make your solitaire engagement ring unique! Add hidden gemstones, a hidden halo, add your own touch! The ring pictured above is a gorgeous Old European cut diamond set in yellow gold with claw prongs.

Marquise Diamond Engagement Ring

If you're someone who wants something more unique and a little less common, a marquise shaped diamond engagement ring might be for you! If you love ovals, marquise diamonds could be perfect if you want something a little different. With this particular ring, we set it in yellow gold with claw prongs and added the most perfect side diamonds. 

Bezel Set Diamond Engagement Ring

Bezel set diamond engagement rings are great for several reasons! If you're looking for a more low profile ring that still has some sparkle bezel setting your diamond could be a great option. We also recommend bezel set rings for our gals who work with their hands often, or tend to be more rough on their jewelry. Bezel set rings are super durable and secure.

There are plenty of ways to spice up your bezel set ring. You can add side diamonds, milgrain, or a braided band.

Oval Diamond Engagement Ring

There is just something so timeless and stunning about oval diamond engagement rings! If you love the look of a larger diamond, ovals are great because they cover more finger space. For example, if you get a 2 carat oval diamond it will probably appear a little larger because it will cover more of your finger. Ovals are classic much like solitaires, and will always be in style. 

The oval ring above is set with double claw prongs in white gold. Double claw prongs work well with oval diamond rings because they really hold the diamond in place.

Pear Shaped Diamond Engagement Ring

Pear shaped diamond engagement rings have become more and more popular in recent years. Pear shaped diamonds are elegant and eye catching, while still embodying a classic feel. Diamond halos pair really well with pear shaped diamonds. There is just something so gorgeous about pear shaped diamond engagement rings! If you love the glamorous, more flashy look pear shaped diamonds may be your match.

Cushion Cut Diamond Engagement Ring

Cushion cut diamond engagement rings are another gorgeous classic. Cushion cuts have more rounded corners and larger facets, they sort of resemble a pillow! The ring above was made with a square shaped cushion cut, but they can also come in a more rectangular shape. We set this ring in yellow gold with claw prongs for a classic and pretty look.
