What are today’s most popular engagement rings?
Our guide to finding the best-selling style meant just for you.
A Solitaire engagement ring is a ring setting that highlights one single diamond. This differentiates them from the two-stone Toi et Moi engagement ring, as well as a Three Stone engagement ring.
Solitaires such as the Signature Solitaire and Classic Solitaire are by the far the most popular engagement ring styles. Closely behind are other solitaire styles, such as the Knife-Edge, Signature V, and Signature 6-Prong engagement rings. With clean lines and timeless appeal, individuals choose these settings again and again to highlight their favorite diamond shape to perfection.
A Three Stone engagement ring is a setting that features three diamonds instead of one. A Three Stone engagement ring can feature three diamonds of the same shape, or it can feature one diamond shape at its center with side stones of a different shape.
Three Stones are best-sellers for many reasons. Some choose this engagement ring setting simply because of the addition of extra diamonds. But many love this design because of its versatility; being able to choose from an array of center and side stone shapes, as well as metal color and pavé details, means that you can find a Three Stone engagement ring as unique as your love story.
A Halo engagement ring is a ring whose center stone is surrounded by a circle — or “halo”— of smaller diamonds. For the Hidden Halo, the diamonds are placed inside an elevated prong setting and are best seen from the side — which is what gives this ring its “hidden” name. Although variations occur, Halo and Hidden Halos are solitaire rings, meaning they feature one single center stone.
Halo settings were popular Art Deco engagement rings and are still beloved for their vintage-inspired look. Hidden Halo engagement rings are a modern take on this timeless style and are often sought after for their contemporary appeal and intriguing luminary effect.
A Toi et Moi ring is an engagement ring that features two diamonds instead of one. They are set on top of a traditional band or are featured on either end of an open cuff ring. The name “Toi et Moi” comes from the French for “you and me.”
Although Toi et Moi engagement rings are currently one of the most popular designs, they have existed for centuries. The original Toi et Moi was presented by Napoleon Bonaparte to his future bride, Josephine. First Lady Jaqueline Kennedy had her very own two-stone engagement ring from President John F. Kennedy. Many celebrities are choosing this daring and dramatic style today.
Frequently asked questions
The best way to know your ring size is by measuring it with a ring sizer. VRAI offers complimentary ring sizers, which makes finding your ring size at home effortless. Secure the end of the sizer through the buckle to form a ring shape. Slip your desired finger through the loop. Pull the end through until the sizer fits snug but is not overly tight. When it fits correctly, look at the little black arrow and note your ring size.
The best ring for your engagement is the one that’s right for you. However, there are certain styles of rings that are often chosen specifically for this occasion. Most engagement rings feature a diamond or several diamonds that sit on top of a platinum or sold gold band. These diamonds are secured in a prong or bezel setting, for example. Engagement rings can be Solitaire, two-stone Toi et Moi, or Three Stone settings.
For those who do not want a traditional engagement ring, there are other options. All-diamond rings, such as Eternity or Devotion Bands, or other wedding band styles like the Brushed Baguette Band, can be perfect for an engagement. Consider your style and personal taste when choosing the ring that’s meant just for you.
There are several ways of selecting an engagement ring that matches your personal style. First, browse engagement ring settings and diamond shapes to begin your search.
While exploring settings, consider your daily look. Individuals with more traditional taste might prefer a Signature or Classic Solitaire. Those with trendy or maximalist style might prefer the additional diamonds in a Three Stone or Toi et Moi setting, or the original look of an East-West or Signature V solitaire ring. Those with vintage-inspired taste might choose a Halo for its historic appeal. Then consider what color metal you regularly wear when selecting a platinum or solid gold setting.
When it comes to diamond shape, look to see if a specific shape already features prominently in your jewelry collection. Know that some shapes, like the Round Brilliant or Emerald, are considered timeless classics, while Marquise and Pear shapes are more playful and whimsical. Other shapes, such as Princess and Radiant cut diamonds, are perfect for those who love the modern look of clean lines. Ultimately, you should choose the setting and shape that you gravitate towards the most.
By choosing a best-selling engagement ring featuring diamonds sustainably grown in our zero-emission foundry, as well as platinum or recycled solid gold, your engagement ring is a reflection of your true love and true values. And in purchasing a best-seller, you know that your ring’s timeless elegance is made to last a lifetime.
Start by setting your budget, then select a setting and diamonds to be featured in your design. Measure your ring size to ensure a perfect fit, then customize your ring by selecting a metal color, pavé details, and an engraving, for example.
