Choosing an engagement ring can be as much fun as it nerve-wrecking. There are so many different types to choose from, in many different colours in a who variety of different metal types. The one common theme that runs through most engagement rings is that diamond will be included somewhere, whether as a solitary stone set in the middle of the ring or perhaps one of the stones in one of the 3 Stone Diamond Engagement Rings that you can see at
Other than the inclusion of diamonds pretty much anything else goes when it comes to an engagement ring and the more personal and fitting it is for your bride to be the better. Taking into consideration your fiancées fashion style along with simple things like what her job entails as well as the size of her finger will help you to determine the style of ring that you want to go. For example, if your bride has very thin dainty fingers you may find that a large ring with one solid diamond may look slightly out of place.
Here are some style examples for you:
This ring style is probably the most traditional engagement ring design there is. The ring is made from whatever you preferred jewellery metal is, whether that is gold, silver, platinum or rose gold, and a single diamond (again this could be a clear or coloured variety) which is set with either four or six claws holding it in place. Those people looking for a traditional and simplistically elegant engagement ring will often opt for a solitaire design.
These types of rings like the 3 Stone Diamond Engagement Rings mentioned above also have their place in engagement history. The three stones usually represent the past, the present and the future. Occasionally the trilogy rings can be designed with a clear diamond at the centre and two coloured ones either side or perhaps other precious stones shouldering themselves to the central diamond. This was the engagement ring design of choice by Prince Harry when he proposed to Megan Markle.
Princess Cut and Cushion
In your traditional solitaire style rings, you will find a diamond that has been cut into a round or oval shape. In Princess Cut rings the centre diamond is cut into a square shape and has a more modern feel to it that the traditional round shape. The central diamond is then sometimes surrounded by other smaller diamonds or different precious stones.
