Don’t overlook some forms of halo- they can also be classical and timeless . Especially when you look at vintage and historical pieces of jewellery of the 19th and early 20th century. Then there’s also toi et moi rings which are so exquisite and perhaps the most romantic style of ring, historically.

My unpopular opinion is that there’s really no such thing as a truly timeless engagement ring. Even the classic solitaire…the width of the band gives it away, to some extent. My mom got a “classic timeless solitaire” back in the day, and the band was 3 mm+, compared to the 1.5-2 mm bands that are popular today. White gold was all the rage when my grandma got engaged, but when my mom got engaged, it was yellow or bust. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with trying to avoid overtly trendy designs, but don’t let it rob the fun! I was nervous about going for rose gold. I read SO MANY THREADS on here, and people have been saying “don’t do it, it’s too trendy” since like…2007. And it’s still going strong, 14 years later, which definitely takes it out of “trend” territory. 

So…have fun! There are so many beautiful, beautiful rings and styles. While I love my ring, I do sometimes wish we hadn’t played it quite so safe with a traditional solitaire.

@dianaj17:  I completely agree with this. Everything lies within a time period. And I’ve said this before, but by the time you think your ring is looking passé you’ll be more worried about your face looking dated.

My 2 cents any solitare is timeless and classic. So spend your money on the stone, a simple gold setting won’t take too much from the budget. Get as much in terms of stone for your budget as possible. As previous posters said a lower colour like a J or K looks just as good as higher colour. Also for example if you look for a 1ct, check out the 0.9 which will come in cheaper, they sure love to increase the price at 1ct; 1.5ct and 2ct, so look slightly below and you will find some value. Congratulations enjoy looking for and selecting her ring.

@aprilblonde said! Quality stone and simple setting. If she wants to add more bling she can with her wedding band or wrap; if she wants to have the ering stone to remain the star she can with a plain metal wedding band. Alot of options to basically bling it up or keep it modest. Congrate and feel free to come ask any more questions you have:)

Gosh I just love ovals. This is what I think of as elegant, timeless, and simple (but gorg!)
