Traditional Engagement Ring Styles
Shopping for engagement rings can be a long, grueling process when all the different lingo is thrown out. “Solitaire” and “Halo” are commonly seen words, but what do they mean? All-in-all, there actually nothing frightening about engagement rings; in fact, they are supposed to be fun!
A traditional engagement ring is all about the style. Most traditional engagement rings have a simplistic band and let the diamond steal the show. However, that may not always be the case. Traditional style engagement rings are those ring designs that everyone knows and loves. The Solitaire is a simple, one-stone ring, while the Halo style is a center stone surrounded by accent diamonds. Although the rings may differ slightly in the details, the base shape and style remains the same. These styles that have been around for years are known as the traditional engagement rings.
Platinum is one of the most popular choices for classic diamond engagement rings; however, white, yellow, and rose gold prove to give rings a nice touch. Diamonds are the traditional choice for engagement rings, and therefore, it only makes sense that diamonds make up a majority of traditional engagement rings. Round, Princess, Emerald, and Cushion cut diamonds are all incredibly popular, but it is the cushion cut that is typically found in a vintage ring, while princess cut is relatively new. Round cut diamonds are also very typical of a traditional engagement ring.
In 2017, rose gold is huge. Adding rose gold to any traditional engagement ring would give a modern twist to something classic and timeless. Additionally, vintage inspired rings are making a comeback, allowing for more traditional rings to breathe in new light. Colored gemstones are also a big 2017 trend; although traditional engagement ring settings typically use diamonds, swapping out the diamond for a sapphire or ruby might transform a traditional ring to an extraordinary modern wonder!
