Deciding on a Timeless Engagement Ring Style

Bridal Article - I Do, To Do

Are you looking for a classic engagement ring?

Just like clothing, jewelry trends come and go. But unlike the temporary pieces in our wardrobe, an engagement ring is worn forever. That means you’ll want a style that can stand the test of time. This could be something that truly captures your personality, or a classic design. 

Here are a few things to consider as you look into purchasing a timeless engagement ring. 

A Timeless Design
 

Solitaire rings with round or princess-cut diamonds are the most time-honored choices for an engagement ring. As you celebrate anniversaries and milestones together, this design will never lose its classic charm. To make it more unique, select an enhancer or wedding band that fits your style. You can also switch up the metal, setting, or diamond shape. 

Halo engagement rings have quickly become a modern classic, and traditional three-stone rings are another popular choice. There are many beautiful designs to choose from when it comes to timeless engagement rings. 

The Band

As the years go by, your engagement ring will go through a lot. Consider your job and future plans as you look into the material of your band. While white, yellow, and rose gold are the most popular choices, you might consider an alternative for a hands-on job. You could get the engagement ring in the metal of your choice and find a simple metal or silicone band if you can’t wear your ring to work.  

No matter what you choose, think about the metal color that goes best with what you wear on a typical day. 


An Heirloom Ring

A family heirloom passed down through the decades will grow in meaning while maintaining its classic appeal. You could even take the stones from an heirloom ring or other piece of jewelry and have them set in a more modern setting. This will help to preserve the sentiment of the original while adding your own spin.
