It seems as though every fiancĂ©-to-be has a vision of her perfect ring… except for you. In your defense, it’s hard enough to decide on the perfect piece of jewelry, let alone one you’ll wear every day for the rest of your life.

Perhaps the easiest way to decide on the perfect engagement ring is to consider your everyday style and go from there — it turns out, particular rings go better with certain aesthetics. And, since your style is likely a great representation of your personality, matching your ring to that will ensure you’ll love your bling for years to come. 

Want to know what works best with your look and your personality? Read on to find out.



Traditional

There’s nothing wrong with a simple day-to-day style, and, if you plan to wear a wedding dress with classic lines and fabrics, a traditional ring may suit you best. 

Traditional rings tend to be simple yet elegant: think of glittering Solitaire-cut diamonds that stand alone on a simple platinum or gold band. If you fancy yourself to be someone traditional and practical, this style of ring could be the perfect one, since it will be in style forever.

Glamorous

Okay, so, glamorous isn’t technically a personality trait, but it’s who you are. Whether you spend hours primping before leaving the house, sip champagne just because it’s Tuesday, or watch old movies just to soak up some of that old school Hollywood fabulousness, you can’t settle for just a simple diamond on a simple band.

Instead, an extra-large stone or ring featuring several diamonds would match your daily style if you already like to sparkle. That amount of bling will be a perfect representation of your personality.

Trendy

Do you keep up with all of the latest fashion trends, have reservations at the newest restaurants, and know who in Hollywood is dating whom at all times? If so, congratulations! You’re on top of all the latest trends.

Because you’re so of-the-moment, it might feel wrong to go for something classic, something simple, or something super bling-y, if that’s not in right now. The latest ring trends include everything from rose gold bands to pear-shaped stones, to diamonds that — gasp — aren’t white. What you get may not be in style forever, but you’ll find a way to make it work with every outfit you put together because that’s just you.

Outdoorsy

The outdoorsy bride might have a hard time envisioning the right ring since diamonds don’t typically do well with mountain climbing, hiking, sailing, camping, or all of the other ways you fill your weekends. Fortunately, jewelry designers are regularly inspired by the beauty of nature and incorporate it into their designs. 

From weaving ivy bands to diamonds set to look like lotus flowers, Mother Nature would approve if you wore a flora-inspired ring on your next excursion — and, you know, down the aisle.

Modern

Finally, you might describe yourself as someone who enjoys modern design: everything from sleek stone counter tops to understated art appeal to your eye. 

You can find a ring that has the same understated elegance in the form of geometric cuts, clarity and, once again, simple bands.

The good news is, if your personality doesn’t fall into one of the above categories, you’re not alone and jewelry designers know this. Peruse the cases at your local jewelry shop to find a diamond that catches your eye or, if all else fails, request a custom design that fits you to a T.

It’s an investment, an heirloom, and something you will literally wear forever, so it’s worth the effort to find a piece that’s truly you.
