Five Classic Engagement Ring Styles

Five Classic Engagement Ring Styles

The holidays are right around the corner and excitement is already humming in the air. People are spending more time with loved ones, enjoying the warmth and joy of each other’s company. With so much love in our hearts, there’s no better time to propose than the holidays, when you’re surrounded by friends and family. Plus, what better gift could you give your beloved than a spectacular new engagement ring?

At JewelSmiths, we know how important finding the perfect engagement ring is. That’s why we’ve put together this list of five classic engagement ring styles, so you can discover her dream ring.


The bezel style has a clean, contemporary look and holds the stone securely in place with a thin metal rim. This style is a fantastic option for someone who is on-the-go and always using her hands, such as a nurse, doctor or teacher.


The three-stone style is characterized by a larger center stone flanked by two smaller side-stones. The gems can signify a couple’s past, present and future together. While this style is gorgeous with three diamonds, some couples add a splash of color by using emerald, sapphire or ruby side-stones.


In this style, a ring of stones circles the center stone, creating a glowing “halo”. The halo style is wonderful for making a smaller center stone really pop and appear bigger. Halos also come in elaborate designs, such as double halos and flowers.


Pavé is French for “pavement”, which perfectly describes the impact of this exquisite style. In pavé style, small stones are set closely together in the band of the ring, creating a glittering line of sparkle. This style adds extra radiance through the side-stones, which also emphasize the center gem.


The iconic solitaire is the most common and popular of engagement ring styles. Simple yet elegant, this setting holds a single diamond in place with four to six prongs. This style allows the maximum amount of light to flow through the stone, revealing all of its shimmering glory.
