This time of year, wedding proposals happen like crazy. If you’re a savvy gent choosing a ring for your gal, or a savvy diva choosing the look of your own engagement ring, read this post! Discover the different engagement ring styles to match personalities – from shapes to colors to band types, it’s all here!
If her hairdos or outfits often mirror those from Mad Men characters, she’s got some sassy vintage flair. Antique engagement rings would be the ideal choice for this girl. Look for something that has lots of detail, like smaller stones surrounding a large stone. And don’t stop there – bands can be detailed, too, with jewels, diamonds or unique designs etched into them. Check out these looks for an idea:

Her perfect match would be an elegant ring to refine her chic look. Look for rings with smooth stone shapes, like round or square. Focus more on the stones, and keep the band streamlined and smooth. Here are some examples:

Ah, the girl who always looks wholesome and pretty. Her outfits might have a trendy accessory to add some pop, but she usually boasts a classic style that never fades. A traditional ring that’s pretty and subdued is ideal for her. Look for 4- or 6-prong solitaire rings offered in various sizes like round, square or emerald. Take a look at our favorites:

Adidas tracksuits, Puma purses, runners in every color – the Sporty Girl loves fashion-forward activewear. For her, especially if she plays sports often, look for styles with stones that don’t pop up so much. A solitaire ring might get caught on things, or the stone might fall out during activity. Instead, opt for rings with stones that are slightly or somewhat flushed with the band. Check out these sporty looks:
From left to right: 1/4 CT Princess-Cut Diamond Three Stone in 14K White Gold, $529.99, Zales; 1/6 CT Diamond Three Stone Swirl Bypass Ring in 10K White Gold, $169.15, Zales; 1/2 CT Round and Baguette Diamond 14K White Gold, $575, Ice.com.
Her hair is always styled and glossy, and her outfits are trendy and head-turning. She never lets an opportunity to show her fashion sense slip away. She needs a ring as loud as her – opt for something big and sparkly! You can go all out with this one – even if the stone is big and sparkly, add some bling to the band too. You’ll know what we mean with these glittering gems:
From left to right: 2 CT Frame Princess-Cut Diamond Ring in 14K White Gold, $2999.99, Zales; 1 1/2 CT Marquise Diamond Cathedral Bridge Ring in 14K White Gold, $1999.99, Zales; 3/4 CT Multi-Baguette Diamond Three Stone Ring in 14K White Gold, $999.99, Zales.

This girl wouldn’t be caught wearing a single solitaire ring. Something darker is in order to capture her gothic flair. Choose unique engagement rings (or have one custom made) that have black diamonds or stones. Or for something really unique, non-diamond engagement rings like pearl designs are gorgeous! Think “antique,” but move to darker colors. Here are some breathtaking choices:
From left to right: 1/2 CT White & Black Diamond 14K White Gold Ring, $595, Ice.com; 8.0mm Cultured Freshwater Pearl & 1/4 CT Enhanced Black & White, $679.15, Zales; 3-3/4 CT Enhanced Black & White Diamond Solitaire Ring in 10K White Gold, $1104.15, Zales.
The kind of gifts she loves from you are written love letters or poems. Her style usually has a touch of bohemian to it, and she lives in the moment, cherishing every second. There’s a perfect ring for her: it’s heart-shaped and shiny!
From left to right: The Shared Heart 1/10 CT Diamond Ring in 14K White Gold, $229.99, Zales; 1/4 CT Heart-Shaped Diamond Frame Ring in 10K White Gold, $211.65, Zales; 1/2 CT Composite Heart Diamond Engagement Ring in 14K White Gold, $636.65, Zales.
