Part of a larger shift toward a more minimalist aesthetic, simple engagement rings are growing in popularity. And we totally get why. Clean, less overdone jewelry is terribly chic. Luckily, brides looking for a demure, understated way to symbolize their commitment have loads of stunning options from trusted, experience designers.
(Not So) Simple Engagement Rings
“Simple” doesn’t just mean a solitaire engagement ring, though there are plenty of stunning examples of clean, elegant solitaire rings out there. Nor does it mean boring or any less amazing.
The fun part about this trend is the rings aren’t really simple at all. They’re thoughtful, detailed, and intentional. Think smaller stones, even micro pave bands, delicate designs with beautiful bespoke details, often boasting a more intricate, one-of-a-kind look than bigger, traditional styles.
Keep reading for three designers all dialed into the popular look.
The legendary “Tacori touch” definitely extends to today’s popular engagement rings. Tacori offers simply beautiful pared down settings. If you’re still wanting a solitaire ring but don’t want a bulky band, Tacori has ample options of beautiful princess cut rings that boast delicate, sophisticated shafts that give rings a subtle grace.
Cluster rings are another example of less traditional, more understated engagement ring. Tacori’s Inflori collection is inspired by the brand’s Romanian heritage and takes the basic design of a solitaire and reimagines it into a “bloom,” with clusters of diamonds in oval, marquise, or pear shapes. Super romantic. Super unique.
When the diamond isn’t the main attraction, there’s ample opportunity to play up other parts of the ring with extra character. ArtCarved is an expert at embellishing ring shafts with milgrain, filigree, and other details that really add a distinctive element, making a “simple engagement ring” really quite exquisite. ArtCarved’s Classic and Vintage collections especially showcase how accentuating small details—milgrain, filigree, micro pave diamonds—can make a smaller ring really stand out.
Some brides are throwing convention to the wind by opting to lose the center stone altogether and just going all in on a band. Artcarved’s Vintage collection of wedding bands has some stand-out examples of the sort of nesting rings tons of brides are after right now.
Hearts on Fire
If you like the idea of a band, but are still wanting diamonds, consider something like a Hearts on Fire all-diamond band, which has lots of options all its own. Incorporate a varying mix of cuts or shapes, like the Triplicity Open Bezel Band, featuring all round-cut diamonds in varying sizes with a very modern, open shaft design. Or try the Isabelle Teardrop Milgrain Diamond Band, which boasts a unique look featuring milgrain accents and groupings of diamonds forming teardrop-shaped outlines.
