The Most Popular Engagement Ring Styles of 2012

The time has come for guys to man up and pop the question to their lovely ladies! Before you go and spend your paycheck on a diamond ring, though, consider one of these trendy engagement ring styles to put on your bride-to-be’s finger.

The Most Popular Engagement Ring Styles of 2012

  1. Angelina’s quarter-million-dollar ring. This ring might be out of your reach as far as price goes, but you could always opt for something similar to hers. The clean lines of an emerald cut engagement ring are unique, sleek, and are sure to stand out in a crowd.
  2. Gemstones. Gemstones have become increasingly fashionable in recent years and continue to grow in popularity. Sapphires and rubies are beautiful and would look absolutely stunning surrounded by smaller, high quality diamonds in the rings setting.
  3. Custom design. This option is a little tougher on your wallet, but it’s the best way to make her engagement ring completely personal and romantic.
  4. Halo settings. Simple rings can be made incredibly stylish when the center stone of the ring is surrounded by a halo of smaller diamonds. Halo settings have a vintage look to them and give the engagement ring a little extra sparkle.
  5. Colored metals. Platinum and white gold are and will continue to be the most popular among engagement ring metals, but many non-traditional brides are opting for metals that are a little out-of-the-box. Rose gold and vintage-style yellow may not make your diamond look as stunning as other metals, but they add a personal touch to a classic ring.
  6. Antique look. Antique-style engagement rings are quite appealing to the eye because of their intricate designs and embellishments.
