Are you planning a romantic proposal in the near future and eager to find just the right ring for your significant other? Minimalist engagement rings can please almost anyone, whether their style is classic or modern, opulent or subdued, refined or edgy. When paired with a sparkling lab grown diamond, you can achieve the piece jewelry for your future fiance.
What Does Minimalist Mean?
Before we explore engagement rings that suit the minimalist in your life, let us define what minimalist wedding rings are in the first place. Minimalism as a style abides by the train of thought that less is more. In terms of engagement rings, this doesn’t mean that the less expensive a ring is the more minimalist it is, but rather that the fewer elements there are the more minimalist it is. Many people with minimalist ring style choose to simply wear a wedding band. Typically, though, minimalist means the ring’s main attraction is the center stone, and that the setting is somewhat simple. This doesn’t mean that the ring is any less gorgeous (or any less expensive); its beauty lies in its simplicity and its cost, generally, lies in its quality center stone.
8 Minimalist Engagement Rings
While the definition may give you a general idea of what a minimalist engagement ring looks like, it can come in a variety of forms. At 12FIFTEEN Diamonds, we offer a variety of minimalist simple engagement rings including wedding rings and wedding bands. Here are a few inspiring minimalist engagement rings to suit various styles.
This sparkling engagement ring features an oval cut diamond in a four-prong basket setting that blends beautifully with the band. The simple solitaire setting is accented with pavé diamonds on each side, allowing the ring to really highlight the accent stone in the middle. A pavé band is a great way to add additional sparkle to a minimalist ring while still staying true to its simplistic style.
When looking for minimalist ring styles, a round cut ring is an excellent option. It doesn’t get more minimalistic than a solitaire round cut diamond ring. This classic setting features six prongs and comes in white gold, rose gold, yellow gold, and platinum. When it comes to selecting a round diamond that will shine in this simple setting, the stone cut is the most important. Choose an ideal stone cut of any carat size and it will sparkle beautifully.
This stunning engagement ring features two pear cut side stones book-ending a beautiful emerald center diamond and a sleek solitaire band. The emerald cut diamond is an elegant and timeless choice, and when set in this way, it feels modern and unique. It’s a beautiful minimal engagement ring for the person who wants something with a little flair.
The modern twist on a solitaire engagement ring is setting the center stone sideways, or facing East to West, as opposed to North to South. This engagement ring trend offers the best of both worlds: it is classic and simple, yet edgy and special. This particular East-West ring design has a pave band that features 20 round brilliant lab diamonds.
A split band is perfect for the minimalist who is looking for a diamond ring with a twist. The partially split band the Roma setting features is modern and elegant. It can be set with any diamond cut but looks radiant paired with a sparkly princess cut stone.
The Dahl engagement ring makes the East-West orientation even more modern and minimalist by adding a bezel setting. A bezel not only looks streamlined and modern, but it also protects the center stone from damage. This ring is accented with smaller diamonds along the band for added sparkle.
This dainty engagement ring features a unique beaded band and a beautiful pear cut lab diamond at the center. The delicate band highlights the center stone beautifully in eye-catching, yet minimalist fashion. Whether you choose a solitaire diamond ring or a three stone style, it’s important to choose the diamond at the center of it all with care. Lab diamonds offer all of the beauty of natural diamonds but are far better for the world. Our collection allows you to find the perfect ring design for your special someone. Whether you are looking for a simple eternity band or a gemstone engagement ring style with smaller diamonds, we are confident that you’ll be able to find exactly what you’re looking for right on our website.
Discover a striking minimal setting with this solitaire East-West oval cut diamond ring. Customize it with the metal you love: gold, rose gold, white gold, or platinum. Then, complement it with a beautiful wedding band. For added sparkle, chose a simple band set with pavé diamonds, or for a more ornate approach, choose a delicate band with a unique shape. The great thing about this classic engagement ring is that it can pair with plenty of different wedding bands.
If you or your fiance-to-be choose to forgo a center stone in your ring design altogether, a wedding band on its own can be a beautiful minimalist engagement ring and still carry all the beauty and symbolism of other styles.
