Modern Engagement Ring Styles

Guide to Modern Engagement Ring Styles

There are many engagement rings out there, but every couple deserves something unique. Luckily, there is a vast diversity of styles available to make an engagement ring reflect their personality and romance. Whether they prefer minimalist chic or intricate spectacle, there are plenty of modern engagement ring styles in our Mitchum Jewelers showroom to suit every taste.

Hidden Halos Engagement Rings

Halos are not known for their subtlety; it’s difficult for a layer of small brilliant diamonds to quiet itself. Hidden halo rings refer to a piece whose center stone sits upon a halo, where they can only be viewed from the side. This outlines the center stone with light and luxury, ensuring that every angle of the ring is beautiful.

Oval Cut Halo Rings

Most people opt for the round brilliant cut diamond, which constitutes approximately 75% of all diamond sales. This is largely due to their light-reflective properties; they are unequaled in shine due to their multi-faceted surface. Oval cut stones are an excellent choice for an unusual alternative. They have a similar round shape with a large surface area. A halo of smaller diamonds lends oval cut halo rings plenty of uninhibited sparkle.

Split Shank Rings

The split shank is a fascinating style that changes the ring’s entire look. The shank is the area on the band surrounding the center stone. In this style, the shank is parted and eventually reconvenes. Most pieces are separated in two, although sometimes the shank is split further. For an added effect, many designers incorporate pavé set stones into the split shank.

Bezel Engagement Ring

Bezel rings are perfect for anyone with a proclivity for contemporary aesthetics. In these rings, the center stone is surrounded by precious metal. There are a plethora of ways jewelry makers adorn bezel engagement rings from intricate metalwork to colorful gemstone arrangements. These rings look fantastic in a minimalist design that frames the shape of the center stone.

Intertwining Engagement Rings

Intertwining engagement rings have two bands interwoven with one another, evoking a rustic and nature-inspired aesthetic. This gives them a romantically chic style derived from the symbolism of a rope. In marriage, two lives are woven together as one. Some rings mix metals for a more balanced yet bold look, such as yellow gold and platinum.
