Simple. Classic. Done.
You’re not interested in trends: You want your engagement ring to be a timeless thing of beauty. And just as you're a committed fan of cashmere cardigans and pearls, you’re equally familiar with the famous six-pronged Tiffany setting, the world’s most popular engagement ring style since its debut in 1886. Designed to sit high on the finger, which allows more light to pass through the diamond, it’s what most brides picture when they envision their engagement ring—including you. So when it comes to zeroing in on a classic engagement ring, you have an easy target: a round diamond solitaire in a yellow gold or platinum Tiffany-style setting, perhaps with tapered baguettes. Halo settings offer a modern twist on tradition. Also consider eternally classic emerald-cut diamonds, or a blue sapphire center stone.
