Classic Engagement Ring Styles That Have Stood the Test of Time

Every year, we see a new slew of jewelry trends, even when it comes to engagement rings. While we're always on board with playing with current trends, breaking away from tradition and upturning the status quo, sometimes a classic engagement ring is just what the doctor ordered. Be it a simple (yet striking) solitaire or a more intricate design that pays homage to an earlier time, these classic engagement ring styles are a surefire way to make a statement without risking the chance of ever becoming dated or passé. For the bride-to-be who wants something undeniably timeless and untouched by any of-the-moment trend, here are four classic engagement ring settings that have stood the test of time.

1. Solitaire Engagement Ring

Solitaire engagement rings may be the simplest setting, but the impression they make is anything but. A clean band—especially one that is barely-there, like our 'Whisper Thin' setting—allows the diamond to take center stage, really showcasing its splendor.
