Meghan Markle’s three-stone engagement ring made waves this year; last year it was Lady Gaga’s heart-shaped ring and the year before, it was some other celebrity who rocked a trend worth trying out. Each year, someone or the other sends the rest looking for the trendiest engagement ring design of the year.

Engagement ring trends come and go but there are some that are timeless. No matter how many years go by, the following diamond engagement ring designs are always going to be around:

1. The Classic Solitaire

The beauty of the solitaire lies in its simplicity. It’s just a single diamond stone placed on a band. The only drawback of a solitaire ring is that it relies on the quality of the diamond. Because there is no shine from supporting diamonds or crystals, solitaire diamonds need to be of high quality so they can sparkle brightly.

The bands of most solitaire rings are also thin so the attention remains on rock itself.

If you don’t want to spend time looking at rings of various styles then opting for a single brilliant cut diamond and placing it on a quality band is the way to go. Solitaire rings are truly a classic and will never go out of style!

2. The Large Emerald Cut

Many celebrities are seen donning large emerald cut diamond rings, for one simple reason – it looks huge. Celebrities will usually make headlines for the size and price of their rings which is why so many are proposed with expensive diamonds that can be spotted from afar. Both Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez were proposed to with beautiful, elegant, emerald cut rings we’ll always remember.

If you have the budget and are looking for timeless ring design, look into the emerald cut rings.

3. The Mesmerizing Oval Cut

Classic shapes like rectangles, squares, circles and ovals will always be in style. These shapes may be simple but they make stunning engagement rings.

Oval diamond rings come in all kinds of styles. They tend to have many more facets than emerald cut diamonds therefore, they dazzle more.

4. The Diamond Set Shank

The diamond set shank is a setting for a diamond that involves covering the band with smaller diamonds or crystals to add the sparkle of the ring. It works with diamond of any shapes.

5. The Cushion Cut Halo

 Speaking of classic shapes, the cushion cut is perfect for those who’re looking for a ring with softer edges. The cushion cut doesn’t have the defined edged of a square or rectangle diamond and contains more facets.

The beauty of the diamond is further enhanced when it is bordered with a halo setting.
