So, sit back and enjoy our easy guide with tips to help you navigate the world of engagement rings with confidence!


Engagement proposal

Which engagement rings are the most popular?

The style of engagement rings is a very personal choice. Some styles are timeless, others evoke romance, and other styles are picked because of the radiant effect of their diamonds.
It all comes to the person who is to receive it. At this stage, we invite you to bring forth your inner Sherlock Holmes and investigate your partner’s preferences carefully.
Engagement rings have strong symbolism. So, look for the details that resonate with how your sweetheart sees the love you share.


To help you understand all the options available, we’ve lined up  a list of much-talked-about engagement ring styles:
Solitaire Engagement Ring



The design is elegant and highlights the centerpiece diamond with a stark glimmer that looks spectacular against all skin tones. The solitaire speaks for itself and never fails to draw eyes.

Three-Stone Engagement Ring



This style oozes radiance from all sides with three dazzling stones. The three-stone engagement ring style is swoon-worthy and allows for many combinations of diamonds — the flaking stones and the centerpiece can feature different cuts.

Halo Engagement Ring



Who doesn’t love it? This unique and oh-so-gorgeous design features a row of delicate brilliants surrounding a diamond in the center. Additionally,  halo engagement rings are the epitome of romance!


Split-shank engagement ring


If you love a take on classic designs, split-shank engagement rings will catch your attention. The band is cleaved in two, making room for extra sparkles and an intriguing peek of the finger.

Twisted engagement ring


Twisted engagement rings showcase the finest of all settings. If the band of a ring is essential to you, you’ll love this intertwined design, which can feature accented diamonds or not.

Bypass engagement ring


Creative brides love the exuberant power in the bypass engagement ring style! The design usually features two center stones “bypassing” the other. The result is head-turning and dreamy.

What metal should an engagement ring be?

We know each metal color has its charm, so our tip here is to pick out a metal shade you’ve seen your sweetheart wearing.

Rose gold engagement ring

Rose gold

Rose gold is romantic and unconventional. The unmissable hues of rose gold favor all skin tones and are certainly favorites of brides with fashion-forward styles!

White gold engagement ring


White gold

White gold engagement rings tend to be minimalist and modest, but they also add sharp elegance and glow to any look, which doesn’t go unnoticed. Likewise, diamonds have their radiance maximized when they’re placed against white gold shanks.

Yellow gold engagement ring


Yellow gold

Yellow gold is timeless. We can find it in ancient jewelry relics, but there’s still something voguish about them that many modern brides long for. Yellow gold is warm enough to liven up any outfit you have on.

White gold engagement ring



Platinum engagement rings are known for their strength and durability, and never fade or change color over time. Platinum engagement rings will prove to out perform all other precious metals and are the most popular choice for that reason. The everlasting quality is a cherished symbol of eternal commitment and love.
