Start by Exploring the Types of Rings Available


What should an engagement ring be like? For your choice to be truly eternal and unique, it is crucial to know all the types of engagement rings on the market. First of all, we will classify them based on their design (and their mount).


These are the most common engagement rings:


Half Alliance


Although its name is often related to wedding rings, it has nothing to do with them. These are simple cut rings in which there is no main stone standing out from the set. They are usually made up of diamonds and other precious stones set in the middle of the ring or hoop itself.


Solitaire Rings


They are the most classic and are always featured by a single central stone, which traditionally is usually a diamond – although it will depend on the budget. Without a doubt, it is the most popular type of ring among couples in some countries. Its simplicity makes it an elegant, discreet, and full of beauty piece.


In addition, it symbolizes the union of two people under respect and love, which makes solitaire the perfect ally to ask your partner to spend the rest of his life by your side.

Eternity Rings


These are rings set around their entire circumference with gems – usually diamonds – in one, two, or three rows. It is a sparkling and beautiful engagement ring, characterized by having no central stone and being known as the eternity ring.


Trilogy Rings (or with Three Stones)


In this case, the central diamond or gem is accompanied by two other stones on both sides – smaller in size – which frame it and give it more presence. They are also known as trilogy rings and symbolize the past, present, and couple's future.


With Halo


These are those rings in which a halo of small diamonds surrounds the central stone, which adds brilliance and spectacularity to the piece. They create the sensation of showing off larger gems when worn.


Rosette or Pavé Ring


It is one in which a striking center stone, which can be a diamond, emerald, ruby, or sapphire, is flanked by mini diamonds. Although, the ring can also be set with these gems.


Rings with Track


These are usually rings where the stones are set in the body, on both sides of the central stone, and aligned in a track. Although, they can also give rise to half-alliances or an eternity ring.


With Stones in Tension


They are pieces in which the diamond – or the gem – seems to be suspended as if in the air. Although, the truth is that it is supported by the metal pieces that make up the ring, which are placed in parallel. One of the most demanding and delicate settings in jewelry that gives rise to fine and avant-garde engagement rings.


Toi et Moi


Although it is unusual, it will appeal to unconventional men and women. Its major peculiarity is its shape, since it is a ring with two precious stones together, usually of the same size, which are arranged on each arm of the alliance. What is its meaning? The union of two soul mates who become one, as they represent the You and the I.


No matter the model you choose you can get lab-grown diamond engagement rings. That will ensure that the rings are ethically and sustainably sourced, making them more unique.
