But if you've been shopping for a while and have yet to find that unique engagement ring, things can quickly turn. In fact, after a while, all of the different ring styles seemingly blur together and you're left asking yourself: "What ring style is right for them again?".
Luckily, we've compiled this handy guide that breaks down all of the ring styles offered at Olivia Ewing Jewelry. So keep reading and rest assured knowing that you'll have the perfect ring picked out for them in no time!
WHY IS THE STYLE OF YOUR ENGAGEMENT RING IMPORTANT?
Your engagement ring is an important symbol of your commitment to each other. It's a reminder of your promises and the love between you and your significant other. The style of the ring you choose can communicate what kind of a relationship you have with your partner and how you feel about them.
It is also a reflection of your (or your partner's) sense of self and the world around you.
A diamond engagement ring is a common choice for many people because it symbolizes eternity, love, and commitment in one beautiful piece of jewelry. Diamonds come in many colors and cuts, which makes them versatile enough to wear with any outfit or style. If you're looking for something more unique, then consider other gemstones such as sapphires or rubies instead!
There are also different styles that suit different personalities: for example, if you're more interested in vintage-inspired pieces than modern ones then an antique-style ring could be perfect!
WHAT ENGAGEMENT RING STYLES ARE OUT THERE?
We’ve come a long way from the simple bands that Romans used to swap on their wedding day. Today, there is an incredible variety of styles from blingy maximalism to muted and stunning minimalism and everything in between. Olivia Ewing Jewelry carries four popular and distinct styles with a twist of nature, they are:
SOLITAIRE ENGAGEMENT RINGS
A Solitaire engagement ring style is a one-stone ring that has no other stones or embellishments besides the center stone. These rings are often simple, with a plain metal band and a round diamond or other gemstones.
A Solitaire engagement ring style is a great option for anyone who wants something simple and elegant, but it's also an excellent choice for people who want their engagement rings to be compatible with their wedding bands. The simple design of this style makes it easy to find matching wedding bands that match perfectly.
NAPLES MORGANITE SOLITAIRE ENGAGEMENT RING
Our Naples Morganite Solitaire Ring maintains the classic solitaire style by centering the showstopping morganite center stone on a delicate twig band of yellow, rose, white gold, or platinum metal. The pastel-peachy-pink morganite clocks just under a full carat at 0.8-carats and is exceptionally durable. It can rank between 7.5-8 on the Moh’s Scale of Hardness. The morganite is believed to be connected to the heart chakra and is believed to bring clarity and respite from hardships in addition to representing divine love.
UNITY MONTANA SAPPHIRE SOLITARE RING
The Unity Montana Sapphire Solitaire Ring takes the solitaire ring style up a notch by incorporating two twisting sprigs that join together at the back and frame the top and bottom of a quintessential raw uncut Montana sapphire. Four claw-like prongs hold the sapphire in place for a ring that is as unique and wild as your love.
JUNIPER DIAMOND SOLITAIRE RING
This romantic engagement ring is cast from a Juniper tree, giving it a hint of the natural world. The juniper is known for its purifying properties and is thought to protect the wearer against evil. It's a perfect symbol of your love, which is both pure and strong enough to ward off any negative forces that may be present in your relationship.
This ring features melee diamonds nestled into its band and a center-stone 0.80-carat diamond. The brilliant round cut is a classic shape that, when paired with the unique and playful details, creates a classic style that can be worn every day or on special occasions when you want to show off your commitment to one another.
THREE-STONE ENGAGEMENT RINGS
A three-stone engagement ring is a style of engagement ring that has - you guessed it - three stones.
Usually, the center gemstone is the largest stone and is flanked by two gemstones that are equal in size and smaller than the center rock. While the ring was developed during the Georgian era, it rose to prominence both in Victorian Era England and the Art Deco of the Roaring 20s.
The three-stone engagement ring is most commonly understood to represent the past, present, and future, of your love and commitment to one another. The three stones represent a couple's love as being like a journey through life together. The center stone represents their present relationship, while the two smaller stones represent their past experiences and future plans.
Three-stone rings are perfect for those who want to show off their love with an extra bit of bling! The extra sparkle that comes from having three diamonds in a single setting can make anyone feel like they’re floating on cloud nine.
NAPLES RUTILATED QUARTZ TRIO RING
Boasting the same appearance as an angel's hair, the rutile in this ring creates a stunning display of iridescence. Its commanding 2.5 carat emerald-cut center stone is flanked round brilliant diamonds that serve to contrast the strong lines with soft curves. The three-stone ring is set in a delicately thin solid gold or platinum band that has been cast from a real holly twig. Altogether, the three stones in the Naples work together to seamlessly exude both elegance and sophistication.
SILVER NAPLES MONTANA SAPPHIRE
The natural beauty of Montana is on full display within the Silver Naples Montana Sapphire Ring. Three similarly sized rough uncut Montana sapphires glitter and gleam in complementary colors of teal, green, and blue, to produce a luminous ring that is sure to spark conversation.
NAPLES 1.5 CT DIAMOND TRIO RING
If you're looking for a classic piece that can be worn with any outfit, the Naples 1.5-carat diamond ring is a timeless choice. Featuring an oval-cut diamond and two round brilliant Montana sapphires, this excellent diamond is made to accompany you on every occasion.
FOUR-STONE ENGAGEMENT RINGS
What could possibly be better than three gemstones? Four!
A four-stone engagement ring takes the style up a notch by adding an extra gemstone. Usually, all of the gemstones on a four-stone ring are the same size without any larger center bling. A four-stone engagement ring can also be referred to as a half eternity band as the four gemstones cover roughly half of the entire band….that’s a lot of bling!
The most popular stones for this style are diamonds and sapphires, but you can also choose from other precious and semi-precious stones such as rubies, emeralds, opals, etc. The design of these rings is simple yet elegant with its plain band and simple setting for each stone.
Four-stone engagement rings are perfect for those who want something that stands out without being too overbearing or flashy which makes them a wonderful choice for the modern yet classic bride.
UNION MONTANA SAPPHIRE FOUR-STONE RING
Show off your love of color with this four-stone Montana sapphire ring. The ethically sourced band was molded from natural twigs to produce a ring that intricately twists and turns along the band for added contrast and detail. Each inlaid sapphire shines in shades of blue and purple, creating a moody look that's stunning on any finger.
GARLAND SALT & PEPPER DIAMOND FOUR-STONE RING
Distinguished tones of speckled white and grey mix and mingle in the Garland Salt & Pepper Diamond Four-Stone Ring. Salt and pepper diamonds are infinitely unique and these rose-cut diamonds are no exception. Vintage yet timeless, the budded twig band compliments the vintage feel of this ring making it perfect for everyday wear.
GARLAND PERSONALIZED BIRTHSTONE FOUR-STONE RING
The Garland Personalized Birthstone Four-Stone Ring is a beautiful way to honor the blending of two families together. The ring is a unique choice for someone who loves to be surrounded by their family, and it's also a great choice for the couple that is about to become a blended family.
The four stones on this ring can represent each of your children, or pets, or simply be a custom design of your favorite gemstones. The end result is a heirloom ring your loved one will treasure for as long as you both shall live.
CLUSTER ENGAGEMENT RINGS
A cluster engagement ring is a style of engagement ring that features more than one diamond or other precious gemstones. The center stone is surrounded by smaller stones that can be set in any specific style or pattern.
It's a concept that can be adapted to suit different tastes and styles. For example, you could have a simple cluster of diamonds around your center stone, or you could have a large, ornate cluster with many different types of stones. The only limit is your imagination.
UNION GODDESS OPAL CLUSTER RING
Like Venus emerging from the sea, this luminescent Australian white opal emerges sparkling from a sea of delicate melee diamonds. The opal's unique brilliance is as striking as it is captivating, and the melee diamond's soft sparkle creates an elegant ambiance that is highlighted by a rustic band that is modeled from two twigs entwined together and cast in solid gold or platinum to highlight the strength and beauty of your own union.
OOAK -JUNIPER FOREST GREEN MONTANA SAPPHIRE RING
Whether you're looking for a ring that says "I'm in love with nature" or "I'm in love with you," look no further than this Juniper Forest Green Montana Sapphire Cluster Ring.
