6 Engagement Rings with Amazing Little Details



Certainly the focal point of most engagement rings is the center gemstone, but some rings feature subtle embellishments that give them special allure. If you’re fan of uniquely detailed engagement rings, we bet you’ll love one (or all) of these rings:

The Willow Ring

Willow Detailed Engagement Ring

One of our most beloved designs, the Willow features wispy, curving bands of precious metal and marquise diamond “buds” (the buds can also be made with sapphires or of plain precious metal).

The Delicate Antique Scroll Ring

Delicate Antique Scroll Detailed Engagement Ring

Inspired by antique rings, this setting is engraved with a graceful scroll pattern on the top and sides of the shank. Six glittering diamonds are nestled in the top of the band, alongside the center gem.

The Circa Ring

Circa Detailed Engagement Ring

This ring takes a classic halo style and adds stand-out details, in the form of vibrant pavé set sapphires that encircle the exterior edge of the halo.

The Hudson Ring

Hudson Detailed Engagement Ring

Intricate hand engraving and milgrain-detailed edges give this ring subtly sensational beauty. The band gently broadens toward the center gem, for a touch of drama.

The Sierra Ring

Sierra Detailed Engagement Rings

In this ring a sleek and contemporary bezel setting is given a dose of vintage allure with a halo of intricate milgrain detail along the bezel. A distinctive, beautifully detailed gallery makes the side view extra interesting.

The Chamise Ring

Chamise Detailed Engagement Ring

Artistic and inspired by nature, this beloved ring features ribbons of precious metal that entwine and hold a center diamond aloft to display its sparkle. Tapering, asymmetrical pavé diamond accents make the ring subtly shimmer from all sides.

First, your engagement rings are Amazing. I’m not a real “comparison” person to other’s rings. Each was given with love and to me that’s the most important thing, whatever the story of the choice of rings.
I have tiny fingers, size 3 1/4, but the moment I saw the Willow. I also think the Willow is exceptional
The solitaires, go far beyond solitaire with the intricate designs, Anything, But Ordinary (Avril Lavigne). I wouldn’t trade the beautiful set my husband bought for me. the engagement ring is small and delicate; it has a middle small diamond with 2 smaller diamonds on each side. the band has very small diamonds all around, except the bottom.
This may not have cost what your rings cost, but it definitely was perfect for me.

I couldn’t help. Sam sounds like a stuck up snob who is in it for the rings. Who waits to accept a ring to then realise it’s not working. Hilarious.

My lovely lady wears the 1.25ct princess cut ring i gave her for our first anniversary together. I have the house that I bought for myself to celebrate that same day. Both very happy 5yrs later, but she doesnt know about the house.Some of the most stuning settings I have ever seen. Your designors and jewelers should be so proud of their work.

Hello guys, some of you sound funny. Simple thing you make it complicated. You were asked what style among those rings you like most? Simple, chose one or two you like best. It didnt suggest to buy any of those. Gosh ! No wonder relationships between two couples become complicated. Take it easy guys, stay cool, nothing to be fuzz about, make life simple and be happy.

Annette Says:

OMG… No one is suggesting you buy anything… Juasking which appealed to you the most. Besides no one said you have to have a diamond… If you can’t take it with you when you pass then you hand it down for
the next generation… So much crap for one question… No wonder there is a lot of conflict around today…

Robert Anderson;
No marriage is conflict free!! No one in any stage of any relationship has a conflict free relationship! If you love your spouse you’ll always find a way to work it out. If you don’t, well than I believe that you never really truly loved your spouse in the first place. All relationships will and can work if the 2 people in it are strong enough and stubborn enough to work for it. The real problem is that there are toooo many quitters in this world. no one wants to work at having something that’s worth having. the world is full of people who want instant gratification and not be responsible for anything that they have done. You also have to be able to admit you were wrong when you are and apologize when you are. these are just a few things of what makes a marriage work. my husband and I have been married for 37 years and are very happy with each other. yes we do fight and yes we have time but its not comfortable for us to be around each other but we still are able to tell each other that we love each other and no in the back of our minds that we will always work things out. and I also believe the number one thing that has made our marriage work is our faith in God!

The Antique is fabulously fantastic! It would have been my #1 if they made a ring of this caliber 38 years ago. I have a 2 carat solitaire with a simple band. I have faithfully worn this ring since my awesomely wonderful hubby slipped it onto my finger.

All tacky except the bezel set one, and I can’t tell if those marks on the edges would look okay in person.

NOT addressing the politics involved in this industry shows a particular level of, say, superficiality. This is an outdated habit of our culture based on a brilliant advertising campaign by deBeers. Nothing more. Anyone who requires a ring of any kind should be kicked to the curb as detritus.

William Says:

I have been engaged 4 times (I know) and received 5 rings. My first ring was The “Willow”, hated it…hated the guy who gave me that ring more. He wouldn’t take it back, I threw it away. The next ring was also a “Willow”…had to say no, the guy was nice, he exchanged the Willow with a Hudson…I wore it once or twice but the relationship didn’t last. He refused to take it back…My 4rth ring was The Antique Scroll or something like it…too bad, so sad…nice guy but it didn’t work out. He wouldn’t take the ring back either. Both rings are somewhere in the attic in a shoe box with a few other things. My last boyfriend and now husband took it personal when I said I won’t accept another ring…he got me a beautiful ring he designed himself. I wear it sometimes…when we go out. It’s not the ring but the thought that counts.

Wow, a beautiful diamond ring does not have to cost that much. The cost of my ring, which is stunning, would barely pay closing costs on a house. By the way, how much do people spend on cars–that they only keep four years? A diamond could still be in your family generations from now, no matter its size or cost. I wear a diamond ring that belonged to my grandmother, and one that belonged to my husband’s grandmother; I love both of them, and the diamonds are not huge. I will pass them on to my children. There is meaning in everything.

I love The Willow and The Antique Scroll rings. The Willow with emeralds, rubies or sapphires as the secondary stones would be awesome.

LaBella Says:

I agree with Shiva Samsun. Can’t take it with you…it might “symbolize love” on this Earth while it exists, but so do many other meaningful things. The materialism in America, when you really understand the point of it, is to keep people as shackled debt slaves, under a mind-control agenda. You are so busy spending and trying to pay down debt that you have no time to look up and really understand what is being done behind the scenes in politics, environmental causes, etc. These are not the ramblings of a conspiracy-theorist, but this is pure fact. Even North Korea has sought to tear “us” (Americans and Europeans) down for our overt consumerism. A video on YouTube exposes it. It is in Korean but very eye-opening. Changed the way I look at buying forever.

LaBella Says:

While diamonds have a beautiful allure, I cannot fathom my SO spending thousands on a stone that cost life and limb at my behest. These are my people who have died and continue to die for precious stones. I would tell him, when he asks that I would rather have mu birthstone, which is citrine/golden topaz (for November) than a big ol’ hunking diamond. Now if he insists on buying one, then oh well. I will not be so stuck over my own opinion that I will turn down a well-thought-out gift. But I certainly have enough compassion and sense not to ever spend my own money on one or ask for one.

Danielle Says:

Never was a fan of the princess cut… Prefer the marquise. Wish they had shown more styles with other center cuts since I know I am not the only one who might prefer a different center cut… Nice side details.

It’ll be alright! Keep a good heart, be kind and loving, you’ll meet a sweet spouse! You first need to be a kind soul yourself! The “clear-rock” symbolizes your clear-love first !

They are the most beautiful rings my eyes have ever seen. I wish I had one on my fingers are now. But that we’ll never happen,after thirty years of marriage I don’t think my husband would buy one of them. A girl can always dream right,but never be able to afford one,if I could I would put that on my finger and go every place I could in pa.just to show it off.someone will be a happy woman,if she’s not she’s nuts. Thanks Pat

fred, the price of a ring would not come close to a down payment on a house. have you checked the prices of houses recently? if you’re concerned about abuse connected to diamond mining, buy a certified conflict-free stone, or buy another type of stone altogether! i would want a square diamond, and none are shown on here. i hate the curlicued details! they take away from the pure beauty and simplicity of the stone.

Willow in 18 karat gold with buds in gold instead of stones is the most exquisite ring ever designed.

They are beautiful rings, but there are already so many out there. I bought a 1930’s platinum 2ct art deco ring and had an jewelry craftsman make a band to match.

Connie Says:
February 7th, 2015 at 7:02 pm

Absolutely love all diamond jewelry! My favorite of the ring selections are the Willow & Chamise. The designs are both simplistic & elegant. Classy but not overdone.

Oh my goodness…the article is about different styles of rings, for crying out loud! Why is this being turned into anything and everything else: whether the stones are conflict free, down payment on a home, marriage guarantees, et cetera. If you knew the origin of your food, clothes or land, would you be as concerned? There’s always someone who has to make something into something else…

My fiancé bought a perfect diamond for me 20 years ago. He said that he wanted it to symbolize his unchanging love and the quality and beauty of the woman who would wear it! I can honestly say that HE is the diamond. . .the solid, consistent, rock that still shines no matter what life has brought to us! I am so thankful that we invested in one another. . .the beautiful ring was icing on the scrumptious cake!

Debra Roberts Says:
January 18th, 2015 at 7:56 pm

Hate to sound judgmental but if you know about the lives that are lost and otherwise cruelly abused by the corporate supervisors that are accountable to the higher up representatives of diamond mining operations and are still obsessed with your perfect ring well that’s a sad state of affairs. beautiful gems, just not worth the human suffering. And no. I don’t have any myself. I literally put my money where my mouth is,we are all ego-driven and prideful sinners. I spend way too much of food and cigarettes so no, I do not think I am perfect…far from it

The Circa is very elegant. Would look great with Emerald’s or Ruby’s would nice around the halo. Timeless piece of art.

Mary Says:
January 12th, 2015 at 9:56 am

What’s wrong with a nice detailed valuable ring? Sure you might make a down payment on a house but I know people who don’t want to live in the same house for the next 40 years. Jewelry is an investment as well as a gift.

M. Ingram Says:
January 2nd, 2015 at 6:54 pm

“CIRCA” is absolutely stunning. the center diamond is an oval which adds to its apparent size. The sapphires at the edge rescue the ring from being an ordinary “halo”.
this can be any kind of ring and not just an engagement ring.
Ladies, buy it for yourselves.

Ashley Says:
December 31st, 2014 at 6:30 pm

I would absolutely want the Circa if it came it gold and you could choose stones other than sapphire.

Skye MacAllister Says:

Very beautiful. I cannot understand the comment about “lack of detail.” I don’t care for these halo rings, they look clunky to me. The Hudson and Willow are stunning.
