With so many options to choose from, from the ever-popular emerald-cut to ruby rings perfect for the stylish, unique brides, there's a lot to take into account before you pick The One. Sure, going a more nontraditional route is currently the trend taking over in wedding world (hello, black sparklers), but sometimes, you just can't help but stick with the classics—those designs that remain truly timeless, seasonless, and stunning.
