What makes a ring classic
A ring is considered classic if its design has remained in style well beyond the era in which it was first produced. Many rings in vintage and antique styles are loved and cherished today for their classic design.
We absolutely love wearing rings in classic designs with our everyday styles. The most worn and celebrated everyday rings we wear are our engagement ring and wedding band apart from our favourite slim stacking rings, eternity bands, and pinky rings in classic signet styles. Little diamond rings and gemstone rings are also much loved in minimal, elegant designs.
Classic engagement rings and wedding bands
An engagement ring or wedding band in a classic design is perfect for good reasons. When you choose a ring in classic style, it is testimony to your good taste. Typically, classic engagement rings appeal to most women because the whims of fashion do not influence their design and craftsmanship.
Classic gold engagement rings
For centuries, a proposal has been associated with diamonds, and many women consider their dream ring to have a solitaire diamond set in precious metal like gold. Some of the designers we host offer engagement rings and wedding rings made of high-quality gold vermeil, which is sterling silver electroplated with 14k or 18k gold. Diamond engagement rings are predominantly made of 14k and 18k white gold and yellow gold. Rose gold engagement rings became fashionable only in the 1920s.
Diamond engagement ring in classic styles
The most distinguishing features of classic jewellery are simplicity and elegance, which is seen in a solitaire diamond ring. Everybody in every era loved them! Another example of a classic design is the round brilliant diamond ring. Any girl who decides to get married would be thrilled to receive a diamond engagement ring.
Classic solitaire diamond engagement rings
Of all engagement rings, those set with diamonds are the most sought-after, and most women would be delighted to receive a solitaire diamond engagement ring. The classic diamond engagement ring features a single round diamond set with prongs with no other precious stones or embellishments to distract attention from the solitaire. The solitaire stone may weigh at least 0.30 carat or more. A 1.0-carat size round diamond is the most preferred solitaire for engagement rings today.
Classic engagement ring with fancy-cut diamonds
An engagement ring may also be set with diamonds of fancy-cut shapes. Besides round brilliants, classic solitaire engagement rings can feature an oval diamond, a pear-shaped diamond, a cushion cut diamond or the much-loved princess cut. Women who are romantics at heart lean towards engagement rings set with princess cut and cushion cut diamonds, which stand out for their sparkle and eye-catching appearance.
Classic Emerald cut diamond engagement ring
A classic engagement ring may also be set with an emerald-cut diamond. Of all diamond shapes, the rectangular emerald cut is considered the most classy and is sought-after for its beauty and elegance. The emerald cut emphasises the stone's clarity. It is also a winner because it is less expensive than round brilliants and princess cuts.
Classic halo engagement ring
A halo engagement ring is another classic design. A halo ring has a circle of smaller stones around a centre stone which may be round, cushion-cut or oval-cut.
In a halo design, the centre stone is the focus of the ring. The circle of smaller diamonds makes the centre stone look more prominent and adds to its sparkle. It is an excellent style when combining a diamond surrounded by emeralds, sapphires or rubies or a coloured gemstone with a circle of diamond accents.
Classic trinity rings
A trinity or trilogy ring is another example of a classic engagement ring. It features three diamonds of the same size and shape or different sizes and shapes. Such a ring could also have coloured gems or a combination of gemstones and diamonds.
Classic split shank ring
In a split-shank style engagement ring, the focus is on the band or shank of the ring, which is split into two stems, each curving up on either side of the centre stone and ending as four prongs that hold it in place. A classic split shank band may be highlighted where it splits with diamonds, as in a diamond-encrusted band or a pave band set with tiny diamonds.
Classic eternity band
Classic style eternity rings made of 14k and 18k gold and gold vermeil, set with diamonds or precious gemstones such as sapphires, rubies, emeralds, pearls, and amethysts by themselves or combined with diamonds. These precious gems, too, may be round or oval cut, princess cut, or emerald cut set on a pavé band.
Classic wedding bands
Couples often choose a pair of matching wedding bands. The most classic wedding ring is a simple band made of silver, platinum, or ever-popular gold. You can opt for one in rhodium-plated sterling silver, vermeil, yellow gold, white gold, or rose gold band.
You cannot go wrong with a gold band—it is a classic, understated piece. But if a diamond wedding ring is on your mind, consider a classic diamond-encrusted gold band or pave band set with diamonds. Or, choose a diamond wedding ring that pairs well with your engagement ring.
Our selection of classic rings has myriad choices: rings with textured and smooth bands and rings set with gemstones in gold, silver, and gold-plated sterling silver.
