1. #Solitairering (77,470 posts)
“Solitaire engagement rings are the ultimate statement of tradition and elegance, so it’s no surprise to see it is the most hashtagged ring style on Instagram, with over 77,000 posts. A classic solitaire setting is simple, timeless and showcases the diamond without any distraction.”
2. #Haloring (62,466 posts)
“Halo engagement rings are perfect for anyone looking to make a bold statement, as they draw attention to a central larger diamond, so it’s no surprise to see it’s the second most hashtagged ring style on Instagram, with over 62,000 posts. Whether it’s a more traditional round cut, or a unique pear cut diamond, Halo engagement rings are a firm favourite.”
This beautiful Platinum Diamond Oval-Shaped Halo Ring sparkles from every angle. The diamond halo complements the central oval-shaped diamond perfectly.
3. #Clusterring (17,449)
“Cluster engagement rings continue to be a popular choice for brides-to-be who want to make a statement, with the ring style hashtagged over 17,000 times on Instagram. Cluster designs are the perfect way to incorporate vibrant-coloured gemstones with diamonds, with this vintage style remaining a firm favourite thanks to rings worn by Kate Middleton and more recently, Princess Eugenie.”
We love the dramatic sparkle from this Platinum Diamond Cluster Ring. The diamond cluster creates the illusion of one large diamond, for a very glamorous look.
4. #Threestonering (15,016 posts)
“Three stone diamond rings have increased in popularity over the last 18 months, with the ring style hashtagged over 15,000 times on Instagram. There’s no doubt that the regal setting has become popular again thanks to Meghan Markle, whose engagement ring has become a must-have design for brides-to-be. (Read about her beautiful engagement ring here.) With a larger central diamond nestled between two smaller diamonds, three stone engagement rings sit perfectly with a traditional wedding band and eternity band, and show off a brilliant cut diamond to its full extent.”
If it’s good enough for Meghan then it’s good enough for us. This 18ct Gold Three Stone Diamond Ring is an incredibly romantic way to celebrate your next chapter together. The three diamonds are said to represent your past, present and future together.
