Engagement ring trends come and go, but simple engagement rings with timeless details and traditional bands exude sophistication.

This jewellery is also ideal for brides of all ages and those who plan to wear the same ring for the rest of their lives.

So, from simple to eye-catching, here are seven bespoke engagement rings you won’t tire of.

1. Diamond band engagement rings

Diamond-covered bands will never go out of style, from pave to channel settings. These diamond accents complement any centre stone and add sparkle to your engagement ring.

2. Gemstone engagement rings

Because of their unique appearance, vibrant colouring, abundance of size, and affordable price point, gemstone engagement rings have been a popular engagement choice for a long time. Style icons such as Princess Diana and Jackie Kennedy have worn gemstone engagement rings.

Sapphires, emeralds, and rubies are some of the most popular gemstones in engagement rings. Remember that gemstones are very hard, making some gems unsuitable for daily wear.

Diamonds are the most durable gemstones, contributing to their continued popularity as the engagement ring stone of choice.

3. Gold band engagement rings

Gold is a classic and timeless choice for engagement rings.

Yellow gold was once the standard for engagement and wedding rings but fell out of favour in the mid-1990s. White metals, such as white gold and platinum, became popular for modern brides. While white metals continue to dominate the market, there has been a resurgence of the more traditional yellow gold.

Rose gold has also grown in popularity over the last decade due to its feminine, romantic appearance. In addition, rose gold, which is more unexpected than white gold and more subtle than yellow gold, is another trend that we believe will last.

4. Halo engagement rings

Another modern classic, the halo engagement ring setting, has grown in popularity over the last decade. Now, this ring is considered the second most popular engagement ring setting of all time, trailing only the solitaire. As a result of the Art Deco movement, the halo engagement ring gained popularity in the 1920s.

A halo ring’s delicate pave diamonds surrounding the centre stone create the illusion of a larger, more sparkly diamond. Also, a double-halo ring has a second halo of diamonds surrounding the first, making the centre stone appear larger and more brilliant.

5. Solitaire engagement rings

With their effortless elegance, solitaire engagement rings perfectly balance modern and timeless. Solitaire engagement rings comprise a single stone, typically a diamond, and a simple band, allowing the diamond to take centre stage.

While a solitaire engagement ring setting complements any diamond shape, round-cut diamonds are the most popular and offer the most sparkle.

6. Three-stone engagement rings

A three-stone diamond ring is an exceptional, sparkling engagement ring. This three-stone engagement ring, also known as a trilogy ring, has a large centre stone flanked by two slightly smaller diamonds.

The stunning engagement ring is also full of romantic symbolism, which is fitting. Some believe the three stones represent friendship, love, and fidelity, while others believe they represent a couple’s lifetime together, including the past, present, and future.

7. Vintage-inspired engagement rings

Look to the past for a truly timeless engagement ring. There’s a resurgence of interest in historical jewellery, and engagement rings are no exception. Unfortunately, these rare, one-of-a-kind antique engagement rings can be difficult to find. Many aspiring brides opt to recreate these timeless treasures to achieve the exact look they desire.

Look for old-world details like feminine florals, elaborate scrollwork, and filigree embellishments to capture the elegance and style of a vintage engagement ring setting.

Choose a timeless piece to symbolise your love

You deserve an engagement ring that you will treasure for years to come. And while trendy rings are appealing, they may not be what you want for the rest of your life.

Given an engagement ring will be one of the most significant purchases you will ever make, it’s important to take the time to carefully consider the style you’ll choose. Hopefully this article offers some guidance in helping you in making your decision.
