An engagement ring is, to say the least, one of the most important pieces of jewelry you will own in your life. Regardless of the style, we are sure you will love your engagement ring. However, considering many people wear it every single day, you want to make sure the style is one that fits your personality. Whether you consider your style to be classic, modern, vintage, or completely off-the-wall unique, your engagement ring should reflect that.

So what constitutes a classic or modern engagement ring?

A classic engagement ring refers to a ring that is not necessarily on trend at the moment. That is not to suggest that classic rings are not trendy, but a classic ring is just as it sounds – timeless. Classic engagement rings are simple and sophisticated – something you may have seen on the finger of your grandmother or even great-grandmother. (In fact, your ring might have belonged to her!) A classic ring can be set in many different ways, but will most likely have a diamond as the center stone. Classic engagement rings may also feature side diamonds or other gemstones. One of the most timeless diamond engagement rings is the three-stone ring which represents the past, present, and future of your love.

For the lady who appreciates modern style, spring for a less traditional engagement ring. A modern ring typically features a more contemporary, artistic setting. Bezel set rings, rings with clean and contemporary lines, and unique details are all signs of a modern engagement ring. Colored gemstones instead of diamonds, a mixture of metals, accent stones, and pavé-set diamonds are a few of the many personal touches of a modern engagement ring. For the fashionista at heart – the trendsetter who strays from tradition, a modern engagement ring is the perfect touch to represent your love.
