It has been years since my own engagement and wedding, but one thing I relish in is wedding planning and helping friends and loved ones pick out their engagement rings. In fact, I started an Instagram mood board to share my favorites along the way: When at Last. Weddings come and go, but the engagement ring is an everyday reminder of the love and commitment a couple shares. The ring often also reflects one's personal style, and that is where things get interesting.
One great place to find engagement-ring inspiration is on my Instagram feed—I am always keen to see what styles my favorite fashion girls land on. Below, I rounded up 11 stunning engagement rings to inspire and delight even those married long ago. From classic emerald-cut diamonds to three-stone rings to more whimsical, fashion-forward settings, there is a little something for every taste.
Fashion and beauty editor Cortne Bonilla opted for a three-stone ring from the Anna Sheffield Ceremonial jewelry collection. Cortne shared with us that it was, "based on a ring that belonged to Anna's mother—which I thought was so, so special. It resembles an heirloom, and goes perfectly with my classic sense of style."
Alyssa Rara-Luna went the non-traditional route with her statement linked ring. The design creates a cool layered look that I can't get enough of.
Who What Wear's own Natalie Cantell got to design her "art-deco inspired, sunburst dream" with Naveya & Sloane. She also shared that "engagement rings with solitaire diamonds all seemed very grown-up and seemed like I was wearing someone else's ring, so a cocktail ring like I already wore felt more my style. It's not conducive to stacking with a traditional band, so instead, I'll have a wedding ring I wear on my other hand—maybe a Cartier love ring or something else we design together. I think it's a nice reminder you can really do whatever you want when it comes to your wedding."
Every detail of Camille Charrière's wedding was an absolute dream including her ring by Sophie Bille Brahe. As it turns out, Camille was not a fan of her original engagement ring, which she admitted on TikTok. This fashion-forward wavy design is much more her style—get a closer look at the ring over on her Instagram.
