The stars of your love life have aligned! You’ve found your soulmate and now it’s time to propose. You’ve chosen a Capricorn for a partner–a solid earth sign known for their strength, loyalty, and selectiveness. It’s no secret to you that the steadfast goat is incredibly particular. They have a taste for finer things and enjoy beauty and novelty. Knowing all of this, you’re probably now wondering: What are the best engagement rings for Capricorn?

The Best Engagement Rings for Capricorns Reflect Their Traits

Capricorns are the hardest working of all the astrological signs. They are intense but practical, deep thinkers. They are also wildly ambitious, disciplined, and independent. Once they set their minds to a task they will do whatever it takes to reach their goal. But despite this drive, they are also perceptive old souls. They’re devoted, honest, and grounded.

Capricorns have a great appreciation for family, loved ones, and tradition. They’re drawn to fine craftsmanship and the more sophisticated things in life. Additionally, Capricorns love structure and putting their best face forward at all times.

Where do you even begin to choose their engagement ring?

When you consider the perfect engagement ring style for this strong zodiac sign, these qualities are quite telling. In this article we will translate these traits into some engagement ring styles your partner will love.

But first, let’s examine two famous Capricorns. We will look at how their gorgeous engagement rings suit their earth sign personalities.

Famous Capricorns and Their Engagement Rings

Kate Middleton

We cannot think of a more perfect example for the wife of a future king than a Capricorn. Capricorn’s natural refinement and sophistication lend themselves nicely to this role.

When Prince William proposed to the future Dutchess he used his mother’s (the late Princess Diana) engagement ring. The famous ring has a 12-carat oval Ceylon sapphire center stone surrounded by 14 solitaire diamonds in an 18-karat white gold setting.

Given Capricorn’s appreciation for family and tradition, it was appropriate that the Dutchess should receive such a meaningful engagement ring. The ring was indeed a bold choice, but it was a significant one for Prince William. This was his way of having his mother present for the proposal, as well as their wedding day. It truly was the perfect ring to use.

Meghan Trainor

According to fun loving singer-songwriter Meghan Trainor, she knew when she was ready for a relationship. And true to her zodiac sign she searched until she found her perfect match.

When she met actor Daryl Sabara (her now husband) she was sure he was “the one.” In fact, not long after they started dating she serenaded him with her song “Marry Me.” She even made the moment sweeter by playing it on her ukelele.

In line with her astrological sign qualities, Trainor set her sights on what she wanted. Before they got engaged she told Sabra her ideas for her ring.

She chose a vintage-inspired classic. Her perfect engagement ring is a cushion cut center diamond with diamond halo. The band is a platinum pavé.

Best Solitaire Engagement Rings for Capricorns

Deanna Solitaire Ring--best engagement rings for Capricorn.

A solitaire is a practical ring style that showcases a single center diamond. There are no other distractions. You won’t find side stones, pavé bands, melee diamonds, halos, or any extras on solitaire engagement rings. This timeless look is the perfect choice for Capricorns who want all eyes on a glittering, high-quality diamond stone on their finger.

The solitaire ring style naturally lends itself perfectly to any diamond shape. It doesn’t matter if you choose a large round diamond, pear shaped diamond, cushion cut diamond, or an asscher cut diamond. They all look stunning in a solitaire engagement ring setting.

Best Classic Engagement Rings for Capricorns

St. Tropez Ring--best engagement rings for Capricorn

Simplicity, sophistication, and timelessness are all hallmarks of a classic engagement ring. A classic ring allows the center stone to shine. But the embellished band offers a bit more sparkle.

This style is a nod to the enduring qualities of a solitaire engagement ring. But it is made a bit more modern with several diamond band options. It appeals to Capricorns because they can still have their traditional ring style, but with any stone they want. This gives them the uniqueness they love so much.

Best Halo Engagement Rings for Capricorns

Ava Halo Ring--best engagement rings for Capricorn.

The bold statement that finely crafted halo engagement rings make speaks to the essence of Capricorn’s personality. Yes, it’s true Capricorns love tradition but they still love to show off a gorgeous statement piece.

A halo style engagement ring includes a center stone diamond surrounded by a circle of smaller diamonds. To make this engagement ring more unique, use elegant colored diamonds for the halo.

And if you really want to impress your partner’s taste for the creative, add a hidden halo to your ring. A hidden halo is a halo of diamonds (or some other stone) hidden underneath the ring setting. When you view the engagement ring from a birds-eye view, it looks like a solitaire.

Best Vintage Engagement Rings for Capricorns

A vintage style engagement ring combines Capricorn’s appreciation of quality with tradition. These lovely rings feature milgraining, filigree, and scrollwork to soften their lines. They also lend an element of delicateness to the design.

When it comes to a vintage engagement ring, it is all about the design details–and no one loves attention to detail more than Capricorns.

Vintage engagement rings allow you to choose from a variety of center stones. Although, you will find that emerald and asscher cut stones go best with this engagement ring style.

Choosing an Engagement Ring Based on a Zodiac Sign

Now you have a better idea of the best engagement rings for Capricorn. But keep in mind that you don’t have to choose just by their zodiac sign qualities. After all, even though Capricorns share many common qualities, you are still dealing with an individual. And they have their own unique preferences.

So yes, use this as a guide for when you purchase an engagement ring. But be sure you get input from your partner. They likely already know what they want, anyway. And if you need extra help to find the perfect engagement ring we are here for you.
