  • Diamond Engagement Ring: Does she want Modern or a Classic style?

    Posted on by Shain Leyton

    Classic doesn’t necessarily mean vintage and Modern doesn't need to mean trendy. 

    For some couples, diamond engagement rings serve to let other people know that she's taken, but a ring can mean a lot more than that to most people. She wants the symbol of your eternal bond to each other to be super beautiful. 

    We have seen people choose unique engagement rings that express their personality and remind them of the special love they share with their partner. These factors can all help determine whether you should go with a classic style of wedding ring or choose something more modern.

    A popular trend in engagement rings now is an updated retro style– for example, a gold ring in soft floral styles reminiscent of the 1950's and 1960's

    Classic engagement rings are the styles that have been very common for the past couple of decades. The classic style ring is a large solitaire diamond on a plain band, or variations such as a single princess cut diamond in a plain gold band.

    The ring style depends on the wearer’s personality and preference more than anything else! Most style of engagement ring can be purchased with most budgets, so you should initially focus more on an overall look. 

    Ask a few questions about color, style, where you will be wearing it most and how it can naturally enhance your every outfits. 

    Do you want the ring to be sleek and modern, with sharp lines?

    Do you want a rose gold ring with colorful diamonds surrounding the center diamond? 

    Budget is a major factor for most people. So understand what your options are regarding sizes of diamonds and clarity. 

    Decide whether to go classic or trendy, and the ring should reflect her style and personality. Now that you know more about the finding ring styles, hopefully you will follow your heart and get a ring that you find beautiful. 

    Happy diamond ring searching and congratulations on this exciting next big step!
