Summer is round the corner and finally it’s going to be the season to bask in the glory of the sun, enjoy a swim at the beach and do all the fun outdoor things you’ve been dreaming of for months. Now that the world is slowly but steadily opening up to more outdoor activities, perhaps summer is also the season when you decide to put a ring on her! If you’ve been toying with the idea of a summer engagement, then allow us to help you make the decision with these 5 summer engagement ring ideas:
1. Sultry Solitaire
The sultry Solitaire is an evergreen choice when it comes to engagement rings – irrespective of the season. This traditional choice for an engagement ring is all about putting the spotlight on the center stone with no other accent stones to distract. Given that it’s just one stone, the setting of the ring is pretty simple and allows you to splurge on the size of the stone instead.
2. Go Vintage
Vintage rings are quite the rage nowadays when it comes to engagement rings. Their unique designs, delicate tracery and ornate intricacies give them an otherworldly charm. If your partner has a thing for one-of-a-kind pieces, then a vintage engagement ring is the way to go. If it’s a family heirloom – even better!
3. Pastel Gemstones
Diamonds are always a classic, but unless you’re custom designing a ring for your partner it’s going to be quite the challenge to find a diamond engagement ring that isn’t the same old commonplace design that one of her friends already has. A solution to this problem is to opt for different gemstones – and since summer calls for a light, airy vbe, we recommend selecting a pastel coloured gemstone as the centerpiece for your engagement ring. Tourmaline, Citrine and Aquamarine are some of the options you could consider instead of diamond or any of the other precious gemstones.
4. Halo Ring
Halo rings are essentially solitaire rings with a “halo” of diamonds or other stones surrounding the center stone. Halo rings are so designed to give the center stone a boost and make it appear larger than it really is! The halo beautifully accentuates the main stone and adds an ethereal gravitas to the ring on the whole. Halo rings are a gorgeous choice for a summer engagement!
5. Three Stone Cushion
Just as the name suggests, three-stone engagement rings feature the center stone flanked by a stone on either side. The side-stones accentuate and elevate the glamour of the center stone. Set in a cushion setting, the three stone ring doesn’t necessarily have to be all diamonds either! These rings are truly versatile in nature and can be customised to appeal to a wide variety of tastes and personal style statements. The center stone could be in a wide range of shapes and cuts, while the side stones could be coloured diamonds or other coloured gemstones – whatever best helps to truly make it the ring of her dreams!
