When selecting your dream engagement ring – or hinting to your future fiancé(e) about which ring style you prefer, brides have many decisions to make. Which diamond cut is your favorite? Princess, emerald, oval, marquise, teardrop, or round? Do you desire a simple, polished band accented with diamonds, a three-stone setting, or the ever-so-popular halo engagement ring? There are many options, but likely the most classic and traditional engagement ring choice is choosing a round-cut diamond with a solitaire setting – left bare and polished or embellished with micro-pavé diamonds.
Browse the engagement rings in the slideshow above to determine if a traditional, round-cut diamond engagement ring is right for you. Whether you choose a solitaire setting in gold or platinum, a pavé setting, or a unique split-shank design, showcasing a sparkling center stone is a classic choice that will never go out of style.
