While some people enjoy maximalist rings, others want rings that have elegant, classic beauty. Simple engagement rings are a perfect option for many a bride because they are a timeless choice and wear incredibly well over time. Even celebrities like Kate Middleton appreciate a simple style diamond engagement ring! If you’re looking for simple engagement rings but you’re not sure where to start, we’ve got you covered.

What is A Simple Engagement Ring?

Simple engagement rings are about exuding elegance and maintaining a classic look. The perfect balance of glamour and minimalist details are, as a general rule, what makes an engagement ring simple in style. These rings tend to have smaller diamonds, timeless features, and few accent stones. The main highlight of these engagement rings is the center stone, which can be in a fancy cut or bezel setting but otherwise is meant to be set simply.

Keeping It Classic: Solitaire Settings

Classic solitaire engagement rings are a perfect choice if you’re hoping to find a simple engagement ring. Simple engagement rings like these make a splash because of their easy-going elegance. Rather than clouding the beauty of your center diamond with other side-set diamonds or stones, you are elevating the center stone to the spotlight. The focus of these simple engagement rings will always be on your marvelous center diamond, as well as the thin, delicate band you may choose. Check out a few examples of some solitaire-style simple engagement rings below!
