Top 5 Timeless Engagement Rings

Choosing the right engagement ring for your loved one can be pretty overwhelming if you’re not sure what you’re looking for. To make things easier, here are some classic styles that never go out of fashion.

Top 5 Timeless Engagement Rings

  1. A Pop of Color: Yeah, diamonds are great, but some women prefer sapphires or emeralds instead to make them stand out. This, for the groom, is pretty great because they have to worry less about the clarity and more about the color. Ideally, the stone will be evenly colored throughout and since gems are less expensive than diamonds, grooms will be getting more bang for their buck.
  2. Split-shank Setting: It’s not uncommon for women to ditch the wedding band and opt for something a little more eye-catching and elegant. The split-shank setting splits the band in half as it approaches the center diamond, which widens the central focal point of the ring so that it can be decorated with other smaller diamonds and details, giving it an antique feel.
  3. Three-stone Ring: Yes, these are more expensive than the traditional solitaire ring, but each stone has a meaning, with a rock representing the past, present and future of the couple’s relationship. Three-stone settings can either have two smaller stones on either side of one dominant stone, or instead have three diamonds of similar size.
  4. Fancy Shapes: For a classic bride looking for an air of distinction, the groom should opt for something other than a round stone. Other than the round cut, there are also princess, emerald, oval, asscher, marquise, cushion, radiant, heart and pear cuts.
  5. Solitaire: This is the ultimate in classic diamond engagement ring styles. This elegant ring complements any woman’s hand and is absolutely timeless. The main reason for variations in cost among this style is the metal that is chosen for the setting. Platinum is the most durable metal available, although it is a bit pricy. Yellow or white gold are beautiful as well and cost much less, but it does wear away over time and is more prone to damage than platinum.
