Explanation of Each Ring Style

Discover the detailed world of engagement ring styles with our curated list. From classic solitaires to intricate vintage designs and contemporary masterpieces, Royal Design of Buckhead offers an exquisite collection that caters to every individual's love story. Your engagement ring is a personal expression, and better understanding your options can help you decide which one matches your style best.
  1. Solitaire: A solitaire engagement ring features a single center gemstone, typically a diamond, set on a plain/solid metal band. The focus is on the beauty and brilliance of the center stone, allowing it to shine and be the center of attention. Solitaire rings are timeless, elegant, and often chosen for their simplicity and classic appeal. Because of their simplicity, solitaire settings are the most affordable option, allowing you to allocate more of your budget towards a bigger or better center diamond.

  2. Halo: Halo engagement rings showcase a center gemstone surrounded by a "halo" of smaller diamonds (think a picture with a frame), creating an enhanced overall appearance. The halo is designed to make the center stone appear larger, adding an extra touch of glamour and brilliance to the ring. This is a great option for someone who wants the overall look to be larger, without having to invest in a bigger center stone.

  3. Three-Stone: Three-stone engagement rings feature a trio of gemstones, typically with a larger center stone and a smaller stone on either side. Three-stone rings symbolize the past, present, and future of the relationship, representing the couple's journey together. This style often holds sentimental significance and offers a unique and symbolic design.

  4. Vintage-Inspired: Vintage-inspired engagement rings capture the essence of an older era while incorporating contemporary elements. This style typically draws inspiration from different eras like Victorian, Edwardian, Art Nouveau, or Art Deco. These rings have intricate and detailed designs, often featuring hand-carved filigree and detailed milgrain. They combine the charm and intricate detailing of vintage designs with a modern twist, making them a popular choice for those seeking a unique blend of old-world charm and contemporary flair. 

  5. Modern or Contemporary: Modern or contemporary engagement rings break away from traditional designs and explore innovative and artistic styles. They may feature unconventional settings, unique gemstone arrangements, asymmetrical designs, or alternative metals. These rings are often chosen by individuals seeking a distinctive and personalized engagement ring that reflects their individuality.

  6. Pavé: Pavé engagement rings are adorned with small diamonds and extra metal, creating a paved appearance. The continuous line of glittering stones adds extra brilliance and enhances the overall beauty of the ring. Pavé settings can be used in combination with other styles, such as solitaire or halo, to add even more sparkle.
