Morning, ladies! Have you been perusing Pinterest lately, putting together a board to pick out your future engagement ring (ahem, we mean assist your future fiancé)? We’ve been there! How do you know if something you love now is just à la moment, and won’t be as stylish in 10, 20, 30 years from now? For that very reason, we suggest going with a timeless style, but with a modern twist. What do we mean by that? A classic stone shape, combined with a metal you adore (rose gold, anyone?), with the jeweler’s recommendation for possible added touches of sparkle.
For example, these oval engagement rings from Joseph Jewelry! The oval stone is a classic shape that gives the illusion of elongating your finger for a flattering look. Plus, oval cuts are usually more shallow — so, if you want a larger stone, but not as hefty of a price tag, you can maximize your carat weight with the oval shape. Whether you’re a gal that loves a vintage piece, pared down simplicity, or contemporary styles — ovals are versatile and can work with so many designs!
Let’s take a peek at a few of our fave styles:
Clockwise from the Top Left: 14K Rose Gold Diamond Engagement Ring // Diamond Halo Engagement Ring // Morganite And Pave Diamond Engagement Ring // 18K Yellow Gold Solitaire Diamond Engagement Ring // Diamond Engagement Ring // Moissanite Engagement Ring
Have you seen morganite or moissanite before? Morganite is a peachy pink stone, almost similar to the color of rosé (too cute!). While moissanite looks almost exactly like a diamond! Originally found at the site of a massive meteor strike, it can now be formed in a lab — making it less expensive than diamonds. Major win! A couple other options to consider. :)
Customize Your Own
Now, here’s a really fun thing that we get SO excited talking about… designing your own ring from scratch! Yup, that’s right — you’d be surprised with how many gals actually work with their partner to design the ring of their dreams.
If you have an idea, are mesmerized by a particular vintage design, or want to incorporate an heirloom family stone, Joseph Jewelry can craft just the thing! You can work with a designer to create something uniquely you, make modifications to the design, and see a 3D model + wax model before you finalize the design. Super cool, right?
Pin to Find Patterns
One last parting tip for narrowing down which style appeals to you the most? Get back to pinning! Create a board with all the rings that appeal to you, no matter the price tag, and once you have a healthy collection of images, you might start to notice patterns. Perhaps you’re gravitating more toward gold as the main metal, or maybe you prefer platinum. Do colorful stones delight you more than diamonds? Now ya know! Don’t worry if you end up pinning 200+ rings (it’ll be our little secret!).
Fancy these oval designs from Joseph Jewelry? Us too! We’d love to hear what your favorite ring is, or what styles + designs you’re drawn to the most (after you find the patterns on your Pinterest board!) in the comments below!
Happy ring hunting, gals!
