Because not every girl wants a big ‘ol rock.
When we hear people say ‘engagement ring’, the image that instantly comes to mind is an impressive diamond centre stone that sparkles like a star. A pretty solitaire diamond nestled on a beautiful band is what women dream of, and as loving partners, men imagine the same thing when it’s time to pop the question.
Or so we thought. While the majority of the ladies believe that the bigger, the better, there are some who prefer understated elegance over a flashy sparkler. Shocker, right? It’s true that large centre stone rings are the norm but some are just not into the blingier side when it comes to jewellery. Sometimes, an elegant band and an eternity ring will suffice.
If you’re a bloke who knows her girlfriend’s love for subtle beauty, choosing a minimalistic style over a conventional diamond ring makes more sense. That’s more than enough reason to skip the expected diamond ring that most people imagine. If you think a band is more practical and it’s right up your future wife’s alley, this made is written for you.
However, just so we’re clear, we’re not discounting the appeal of a large diamond ring. We believe it’s a classic and it signifies a bigger meaning for newly engaged couples. We are merely providing an equally meaningful and affordable option for people who are looking for something different.
In fact, we will show you examples from dainty to the more extravagant designs. Think thin bands with tiny diamonds, to timeless pave eternity bands with incredibly sparkly baguettes, and coloured gemstone that gives off a vibe reminiscent of the yesteryears. Then there’s the more modest design, a simple gold or silver band that is minimally adorned. All these designs are demure but no less than lovely.
The most important thing to remember is that bands are just as stunning as traditional diamond engagement ring. You don’t have to compromise because they are merely a style preference.
If you think your partner will love a beautiful engagement band, here are four distinct designs from Monty Adams Jewellery Concierge Instagram account.
Full eternity band with metal detailing
An eternity band, whether in yellow gold, platinum, silver or rose gold is a great alternative for a sapphire engagement rings. This particular eternity band is adorned with small diamonds that go all around the band. The small diamonds add plenty of dazzle to the rather simple ring. But if you look closely, the design features a beautiful pattern that makes this ring look personalised.
Half eternity band set with small diamonds
Full eternity bands, depending on the metal and number of diamonds might not be an economical option for some. We recommend a half eternity band set with small diamonds or coloured gemstones.
Gold and glittery
Gold and diamonds never go out of style, don’t you agree? Yellow gold’s classic vibe and round bright stones are a match made in heaven. If you go the customised route, you can play with the design and make it your own. Take a look at the different metal designs of the stack of rings below. Aren’t they gorgeous?
Coloured gemstone on platinum
For something truly unique, using coloured gemstones like sapphire and ruby makes a fashion statement. For an eclectic girlfriend, a striking blue stone like a sapphire ring will make her feel like a royalty.
