    Most Wanted

    If you're soon-to-be-engaged and your partner welcomes your input, then you'll need to provide plenty of information as to the type of engagement ring you want. (Not sure yourself? Take this quiz to determine your engagement ring style.)

    It definitely doesn't pay to be coy about what you have in mind, especially when it comes to diamond shape/cut, metal type and color, and any special details (like side stones, filigree or engraving, or a matte finish). The best way to get your point across? Visual aids. To make it super easy to find and compile engagement rings you like, consider signing up with an engagement ring registry such as Reverie, a Pinterest-esque hub of more than 2,000 engagement ring photos. The beauty of the site is that its technology facilitates communicating your ring shopping preferences to your partner. You can create and share an inspiration board filled with photos that best capture your desired look, but the cool thing is that Reverie users can also prepare a complete engagement ring dossier that includes everything from your ring size, ideal setting style, stone type/shape, even the minimum carat weight. Doesn't get any more specific than that! 

    In fact, many of the images on Reverie are credited to a designer/manufacturer, making it possible to pinpoint and share the exact ring you want if you don't want to leave anything to chance. But if your criteria's more fluid? Your engagement ring will still technically be a surprise. Because your inspiration board is exactly that - a curated selection of ideas to give your "engagement ring shopper" the tools to get it right. They need only flash your Reverie profile to a sales person at the jewelry store to see options that align with your favorite styles. From there, its only a matter of time before you're snapping selfies with a ring on your finger.

    What are the most popular engagement rings on the site? We put the question to Harrison Long, CEO of Reverie, and we're thrilled to share them with you in this post. These are the pics that pop up on Reverie users' inspiration boards the most—a great place to start when compiling one of your own.
