According to one survey, about 91% of grooms propose with a ring to offer. _________________________________________________________________________

To make sure that your partner doesn’t feel left out, you should make sure that you have a ring in your hand when you get down on one knee. But many people avoid picking out a ring because they feel overwhelmed with all the engagement ring styles. Thankfully, we’ll break it down for you to help you make the right decision. _________________________________________________________________________

Prong

_________________________________________________________________________

One of the most popular types of engagement rings is the prong setting. If you look at a prong-style ring, you’ll notice that there is a small metal claw that holds onto the diamond. these prongs are normally V-shaped, rounded, flat, or even pointed. If you get a princess-cut gem, the V-shaped will probably be the most popular option. Prongs come in either set of four or six. If there are four prongs, you’ll be able to see more of the gem. However, the gem won’t be as secure as it would with six prongs. Some of the great things that come with a prong setting is that it can make the gem more noticeable since it is raised. Since it’s elevated, the light will be able to go through it more easily and make it sparkle even more. This setting is also ready easy to clean. _________________________________________________________________________

Solitaire

_________________________________________________________________________

If you’re looking for sterling silver jewelry for women, you will probably also discover some solitaire settings. This is another classic type of engagement ring style. With this design, you’ll only have one gem, but the gem is so beautiful that it’s mounted on top of a minimalist band. This style is also sometimes called the Tiffany Style because it was invented by Tiffany and Co. in 1886. For ladies who like a more elegant but subtle look, this is definitely the ring style for them. Another bonus of this style is that they never go out of style. _________________________________________________________________________

Classic Style

_________________________________________________________________________

One of the most popular ring styles if the classic style. If you walk into a jewelry store, the jeweler will definitely show you some of these first. While they are more popular, they still come with all kinds of different variations in what gems, colors, and designs that you could want. _________________________________________________________________________

Cluster

_________________________________________________________________________

If you want more than one stone for your ring, you could get a cluster engagement ring. With a cluster, there is one main gem (the diamond) with a bunch of smaller stones surrounding it. Some people also called these illusion rings because it gives the illusion that the diamond is actually larger than it really is. If your lady loves sparkles and lots of gems, this is a great option that will also save you some money! _________________________________________________________________________

Halo

_________________________________________________________________________

The halo will create a shimmer around the larger diamond to bring more attention to the shining diamond. This is kind of like the cluster, but there will be a circle of smaller diamonds around the larger one. The smaller diamonds are set in such a way that they cause light to reflect off of them and into the larger diamond, thus creating the halo effect. If you don’t want to spend the money on a larger stone, this is another great way to make it seem bigger. This effect also works particularly well with other colored stones, like emeralds or rubies. However, the shape of the diamond will be different compared to other rings. The larger stone will be cut in more of an oval shape rather than a circle. Because of this oval shape, it will make the diamond look bigger when compared to other diamonds. While this might seem like a lot going on, it really isn’t. This style of ring will bring elegance and almost a hint of royalty to it. _________________________________________________________________________

Colored Stone

_________________________________________________________________________

While diamonds are normally the most popular choice for an engagement ring, some couples like something a little bit different. They don’t have to be just white diamonds, but you can get one that you know your partner will love. If you’re stuck on a diamond, there are gray diamonds out there as well. You could also propose with their birthstone. This could be something like opal, emerald, or sapphire. These rings are so different from usual engagement rings that they will definitely catch people’s eyes. _________________________________________________________________________

Bezel Setting

_________________________________________________________________________

If your partner has a really active lifestyle, you should consider getting them a bezel setting. This modern-looking ring will hold the entire diamond (or another gem) with a metal rim all around it. This ensures that the gem will never fall out of place. Rather than using prongs, the bezel makes sure that each part of the diamond is secure so that even someone who is really active couldn’t lose it. Not only will it make sure that you can’t lose it, but it also protects the diamond from any damage that could happen to the edges. You can get a bezel setting that is only partially covering the diamond, but there are different ways that you can customize the look. _________________________________________________________________________
