Our Holiday Engagement Guide

Know Their Style

Subtle and classic, or something with a little more flash? Yellow gold or white? Vintage or modern? There are lots of ring options to explore. Knowing what they like is the first step to choosing the right one.

Choose Your Setting

Details are everything. After picking the perfect diamond, you’ll want to consider its setting. From the classic solitaire to 2018’s popular halo, here are some ideas to make your ring stand out.
