The Romantic And Girly Bride

The classic halo ring setting with a full or half channel or pave band setting is a favourite among girly brides, with the round and cushion shaped diamonds being the more popular and common choice. Up the romance factor by opting for a heart-shaped diamond instead of the usual cuts, picking a dual-coloured rose and white gold halo ring, using a coloured diamond or precious stone, or all!

The Timeless And Sophisticated Bride

For brides who seek timelessness and sophistication, the less popular diamond shapes like the pear, marquise or oval are perfect. Pair them with a simple prong setting for a clean and classic look, or encircle the main stone with a halo of diamonds for a classic heirloom vibe. Eternity rings, both half and full, paired with either a channel or pave setting, are great options for a timeless and sophisticated look as well.

The Vintage Bride

Vintage brides prefer the more unusual and cleaner diamond shapes, like the cushion, emerald, radiant and baguette shaped diamonds, as they look distinctively less modern than their counterparts. Go for a prong setting for a clean, vintage look or opt for a three-stone or halo setting to channel that old Hollywood vintage feel. Renaissance and Lord of the Ring loving brides will appreciate a ring with a higher cathedral diamond setting and trellis designs on the band for a more Edwardian touch, while princess-wannabe-brides will appreciate the whimsical vintage look a split shank, milgrain or filigree band setting brings to a diamond ring.

The Modern Bride

Rings that feature the bezel, tension or bar settings are comfortable to wear, low maintenance and modern-looking – everything a 21st century bride is looking for in ring. Keep a bezel or tension ring clean and simple, or add milgrain and bead-set diamonds to up its modernity.
