What is the Most Popular Style of Engagement Ring?

An engagement is symbolic of a commitment that gets finalised by a ring. Selecting an engagement ring can make a man sweat, as the choices are endless and overwhelming. Typically, couples favour diamond engagement rings, but engagement rings can also be made of other precious and semi-precious stones. As most women wear their engagement rings for life, it is important to pick a style and design that will last a lifetime.

Here are some of the most popular styles of engagement rings:


A single, round diamond resting on a slender band is a classic engagement ring style. It is graceful, sophisticated and elegant. This is one engagement ring that will never go out of fashion. If you want, you can choose platinum, white gold or yellow gold for the band. The type of metal used will have an effect on the price, with platinum being the most expensive metal.

Flair Cuts

Today, diamonds are being cut into a variety of cuts, besides the ubiquitous round cut. You can look for solitaires shaped differently, such as the princess cut, emerald cut, heart cut, pear cut, asscher cut and the marquise cut. Each cut has its own distinctive flair and style, and these have been further popularised by celebrities. Only second to the round shape, the princess cut is the most popular followed by the emerald cut, which gives a slight vintage look to the engagement ring.

Coloured Gemstones

Engagement rings do not always have to be diamonds. You can opt for colourful stones, such as emeralds and sapphires. It is easier to choose gemstone engagement rings. Unlike diamonds, one does not have to bother about clarity with gemstones. The only thing that needs to be ensured is the colouring of the stone which should be even. You also have the option of pairing gemstones with diamonds, and coming up with a distinctive and unique engagement ring that will stand apart from the rest.

Proposing a woman for marriage is one of the most important things a man would probably end up doing during his lifetime, and it is, therefore, imperative you choose the right ring before popping up the question.
