20 Diamond Bands that are Perfect Engagement Rings

Although we love traditional engagement rings (of course!), we are also big fans of using sparkling diamond bands as engagement rings.

Diamond wedding bands or anniversary rings can be a great option for an engagement ring, especially for people who like to keep things simple or who have a particularly active lifestyle. Since diamond bands don’t feature an elevated center diamond or gemstone, your ring is much less likely to catch or snag on things as you go about your day – making it an excellent choice for medical professionals, fitness buffs, or anyone else who uses their hands a lot in the course of their daily lives.

A diamond wedding band is also a more cost-effective engagement ring choice for couples who want sparkle now and budget to upgrade to a diamond or gemstone engagement ring later. For example, diamond eternity bands can often offer 2, 3, or 4 carats worth of diamond brilliance for less than a diamond engagement ring of similar weight would cost.

Diamond bands also make it easy to create an elegant stacked look by adding wedding and anniversary bands as you reach those important relationship milestones. Glamour icon Audrey Hepburn wore wedding bands with channel set diamonds as her engagement rings – her fiancé gave her one in white gold and one in yellow gold so she could rotate her rings to match her outfits. Today, Queen Letizia of Spain sports a similar style with a sleek channel set row of baguette diamonds.
