Minimal metal fine line engagement rings continue to be popular. They’re engagement ring settings that use minimal metal so the focus is on the center stone. They incorporate clean, neat, and flue lines to create engagement rings that are modern, simple yet sophisticated.
As you start browsing engagement rings, you’ll see that there are so many styles of setting to choose from. A newer trend is hidden details, like hidden halos or diamonds tucked into the gallery of settings. These small details make the setting stand out from the rest and give the ring extra character. If you aren’t familiar with hidden halos, it’s a ring of diamonds circling around the base of the center stone. When you view the engagement ring from above, you won't see the hidden halo, but you can see it from the side. It’s a good way to add some hidden sparkle that you’ll notice every time you admire your stunning ring.

As you browse engagement settings online, it’s important to keep some tips in mind. First, make sure the diamond is certified by a reputable institute like GIA or IGI. This is important whether you’re buying an earth-mined or lab-created diamond. If you’re electing for a unique center stone other than a diamond, like a sapphire, emerald, ruby, etc., select a stone with radiant color that isn’t overly saturated or too light. Engagement rings need to last a lifetime, so select durable stones. You’ll also see plenty of different brands online. Carefully research the brands to ensure you’re buying from a reputable brand, and check to see that they offer easy returns in case you’re dissatisfied with the product.
