We will be honest—there are a lot of options out there when it comes to engagement rings. And as your engagement ring is imbued with significance beyond the stone itself, finding the perfect one can be a bit overwhelming. We take love seriously at Maxon Fine Jewelry, which is we are here to help you select the perfect engagement ring style.
Engagement Ring Style and Ring Settings
We thought we’d start with the basics. Not everyone speaks fine jewelry, and that’s fine! You have use to help break it down.
When we talk about ring styles, we’re discussing something that can be very subjective depending on the person. It’s the look and feel of the ring, and different rings can be different things to many people. Ring settings, on the other hand, are very objective. When you hear setting discussed, we’re referring to those technical specifications that help separate different types of engagement rings from one another.
There is certainly something to be said about tradition. Solitaire settings, meaning rings with a single center gemstone, have a timeless quality about them. These rings can be simple and stylish or glammed up with a row of diamond accents. We recommend basket or trellis settings, where the center diamond is set a bit lower for extra refinement.
This look will never go out of style and there are numerous ways it can be embellished, such as the Unique Solitaire Engagement Ring from Sylvie, one of Maxon’s many exclusive brands.
Simply Stylish Rings
If you’re looking for the “wow” factor, you can’t go wrong with a halo engagement ring setting. This is a ring that comes with maximum visual impact, with the center diamond encircled by a grouping of diamonds, adding both sparkle and the allusion of greater size to the main attraction. Pavé-set diamonds are also exquisite for this purpose.
The stunning Venetian-50830V with a Starburst Halo from our exclusive Verragio line is an excellent example of why, with these rings, you will always be considered dressed up.
Isn’t It Romantic?
Romance is a given, regardless of the type of ring you decide to make yours, but there is something about the vintage looks that can’t help but speak to the heart.
These are your rings with milgrain details, dainty bands, filigree, and scrollwork patterns. Rings that, like the solitaire, evoke a sense of timelessness, but with embellishments or delicate patterns in either the band or stones themselves.
Make it Modern
Of course, there is no rule that says your engagement ring must be a diamond. There are numerous options that feature semiprecious jewels as the center stone, or even bands without center stones at all.
It is a ring you will keep, wear, and cherish for the rest of your life—you want it to be uniquely you, and sometimes that means shirking tradition.
Make Your Engagement One of a Kind
As we said, when it comes to engagement rings, you can enjoy a wealth of options. That doesn’t mean you’ll necessarily find the ring meant for you. Perhaps you want a combination of styles, or something completely different from anything someone else is wearing.
The custom designers Maxon Fine Jewelry will bring your ideal engagement ring style to life. Tell us what you want, what is important to you, and what you hope the ring conveys when others see it. We’ll take it from there.
