Modern Engagement Ring Styles
Guide to Modern Engagement Ring Styles
Your engagement ring is likely one of the most expensive and sentimental pieces of jewellery you will ever own or purchase. For this reason, you want to ensure the piece is timeless in style yet unique enough to signify your unique relationship. Browse these modern engagement ring styles from our team at Damiani Jewellers to find a piece that will stun for years to come.
The classic halo setting has been sought after for decades for its unique ability to bring extra sparkle to a ring. Hidden halos are a relatively new adaptation of this style that features a halo of stones, typically diamonds, arranged below the centre stone, visible only from the ring’s profile. This setting adds visual interest to the ring’s side view, an all-too-often underutilized by engagement ring designers.
Oval Cut Halos
The feminine and distinctly romantic oval cut is beloved for its brilliance and ability to make the wearer’s finger appear elongated. For a ring that is truly unparalleled in shine, however, select a piece featuring an oval cut diamond surrounded by glittering accent stones. A halo setting produces an air of regality yet retains all of the softness of the beloved oval cut.
Split Shank Rings
Another style that has gained significant popularity in the world of bridal jewellery is the split shank ring. A split shank creates movement and visual interest, often helping to guide the eye towards the centre stone while adding texture and dimension to the band via a unique use of negative space. Some pieces feature a shank split all the way around or are only split a short distance, creating a keyhole effect.
Bezel Engagement Rings
A bezel ring is characterized by a centre stone surrounded by a smooth strip of metal that produces a sleek, modern feel. This setting provides an exciting alternative to halos or stones that stand alone. The mounting is also highly protective, leaving less of the stone’s surface area exposed and holding it securely in place.
Similar to the split shank setting, intertwining shanks are characterized by sculpted bands that appear to interlace, creating texture and dynamism. Designers may use multiple metal types for a striking effect or dot the intertwining bands with small accent stones or metalwork details to further emphasize the often overlooked band.
