Engagement rings - what styles are available
The most popular style for engagement rings remains the solitaire Diamond, typically with a round brilliant cut Diamond. What others styles are available though. Well there are variations on the solitaire Diamond such as the Princess cut a square cut gem and the Marquise a brilliant cut elegant elongated ellipse. Other variations of the solitaire Diamond is the oval pear and Emerald cut, not to be confused for the Emerald gemstone, the Emerald cut is so called because of its oblong shape. If the solitaire is not what you are looking for, then consider the Diamond set shoulder ring in this design there is a central Diamond held in four claws with smaller Diamonds setting of the ring.

A final common contemporary design of engagement rings is the cluster Diamond ring, here a selection of smaller Diamonds are made into a attractive design.

The material of the ring body can be platinum, 18-carat white gold, or 18-carat yellow gold. Perhaps a contemporary ring is not what you are looking for other choices include antique styled rings, Victorian, Celtic and my favourite Art Deco. Last of all don't forget the option of the wedding set which includes a matched pair of engagement and wedding rings with the wedding ring not being worn until the wedding of course. This can be a very good option in ensures that the two rings match well together.
