Laings Guide to Engagement Ring Styles

Proposals are often the most cherished and special moment of a couple’s journey together so it’s important to have the perfect engagement ring when making the ultimate declaration of love. An engagement ring not only encapsulates your own love story but is richly symbolic. When selecting the perfect ring it’s important to think about the style you would like. Here we take a closer look at three of the most timeless styles – the halo, solitaire, and the three-stone ring.


With a sparkling history, the halo can be traced back as early as the Georgian era. A halo-style engagement ring features a vibrant circle of smaller diamonds framing the centre stone. The style is amongst the most popular with brides-to-be due to its dazzling appearance. The halo can be partnered with diamond shoulders for a magical and striking look or a plain band for a simple and elegant feel. With an extensive range of styles available, each halo is completely unique. Perfect for creating the ultimate sparkle, the halo is the dream ring for those who want a little extra glamour.

A classic and timeless design that will never go out of style, the solitaire engagement ring features a single diamond or gemstone set into a ring. It exudes undeniable elegance and sophistication showcasing the true splendour of a diamond. Despite the simplicity of the design, there are limitless possibilities when it comes to picking the perfect piece. The solitaire can be crafted in a range of metals and a beautiful array of settings to suit any individual style.  A design which transcends trends and creates a lasting look of understated luxury, the single-stone ring is the perfect way to make an elegant statement. The style has truly stood the test of time.
