There's a common misconception out there when it comes to engagement rings: you know, the idea that that the bigger the rock, the more beautiful the ring. While there's certainly nothing wrong with giant diamonds, there are still some women who find them unappealing—and often their taste leads them to explore more subtle engagement ring options.
Just because you don't love overwhelmingly large rocks doesn't mean you can't have a lovely ring. There are plenty of options out there featuring smaller diamonds that are just as pretty as their more obtrusive counterparts. Seriously. You certainly don't need to sacrifice beauty simply because you're going smaller.
Go on to shop 50 gorgeous but subtle engagement rings meant for the lady who doesn't love bling. And also note that many of these options could totally be added into any woman's daily collection—regardless if you're about to tie the knot or not.
