Different Types of Engagement Rings

You are ready to pop the question to her but you will also have to choose an engagement ring to go with it. Engagement or wedding rings can be found in plentiful variety and this doesn't make the selection any easier. If this is your first time, then you probably wouldn't know where to start from - should you buy gold, silver or a platinum ring and what would you have the designers put into it; should it be diamonds, rubies, emeralds or a beautiful combination?

Perhaps the main deciding factor should be your budget and if you don't have any problem in that department then just simply go ahead for the diamond engagement rings. You would be surprised that even diamond rings could be bought for a good price if you happen to spend a little time to survey the different ones. To help you out a bit, we have detailed some of the different types of diamond engagement rings in this article.

    Solitaire Ring

Solitaire diamond engagement rings are one of the most common and elegant-looking rings that you can find. The solitaires, as these rings are called, have one large diamond stone on top of the ring band. The diamond is clasped with the help of 4 or 6 pronged clasp, both of which have their own beauty. You can have the ring made in silver, white gold, platinum or yellow gold. The band width and the diamond can also vary or you can have it changed according to your budget. The diamond can differ from one another based on its Cut, Clarity, Color and Carat - the famous 4C's when it comes to diamonds.

    Solitaires With Side Accents

These engagement rings are a slight variation to the Solitaire diamond rings. In this ring a slightly larger diamond holds the center spot and smaller ones are placed on the sides of the center diamond; this way you can use up smaller diamonds together to give the big look.

    Three Stone Rings

If you are looking for something romantic and timeless when looking for the perfect ring, then how about the three stone ring; with a larger diamond in the center and one smaller one on each side, this is sure to be loved by any woman.

    Bridal Engagement Rings' Sets

If you are a smart buyer then you would want to make a smart choice while buying diamond rings, as well. Buy a set of engagement rings with a matching wedding band which you will eventually have to purchase.
