Famous Diamond Ring Designs
Before you buy a ring, you may want to consider the design, cut, cost, style, shape and gemstone.
There are many styles and ring designs on the market. However, with so many options, choosing a ring can sometimes feel like a minefield. Before you buy a ring, you may want to consider the design, cut, cost, style, shape and gemstone. Here at Diamond Heaven, we want to make this experience easier for you. In this blog, we will discuss some of the most popular diamond ring designs, alongside the celebrities that wear them.
The most popular ring designs
Some of the most popular ring designs include solitaire, shoulder set, halo, vintage and trilogy. If you are struggling to distinguish which ring design is right for you, here are some of our definitions alongside our favourite celebrity examples:
What is a solitaire ring?
A solitaire ring refers to a band with one single diamond. Many people choose this design due to its classic elegance. This style is aimed to showcase the diamond as the centrepiece of the ring. The most popular stone shape for a solitaire ring is the round brilliant diamond. This is cut in a way which highlights its sparkle and magnitude. Celebrities such as Miranda Kerr followed suit, opting for a traditional round-cut solitaire. If you are looking to replicate this timeless look, view our Elegant Round Diamond Engagement Ring.
What is a shoulder set ring?
A shoulder set ring is similar to a traditional solitaire ring but with a little extra sparkle. Similarly, it features a large central diamond, yet the band is encrusted with smaller gemstones. This stunning design emphasises the beauty of the main stone, with an extra special band. Model Chrissy Teigen was proposed to by singer John Legend with a majestic diamond solitaire shoulder set ring encrusted in diamonds. If you are seeking something equally as stunning, view our Round Diamond Shoulder Set Engagement Ring.
What is a halo ring?
Halo rings are a very popular choice and for good reason too. This stunning design features a central diamond framed by a cluster of glistening diamonds. Often, a coloured diamond or gemstone is placed in the centre, with the surrounding diamonds helping to accentuate the colour. One of the most famous halo rings in history is Kate Middleton's engagement ring. Previously worn by Diana, Princess of Wales, this halo ring features a 12-carat oval blue sapphire surrounded by fourteen solitaire diamonds. If you are looking for a blue sapphire halo engagement ring similar to Kate's, view our Blue Sapphire & Diamond Halo Engagement Ring.
What is a vintage engagement ring?
Although there isn't one defined meaning, a vintage ring is a reproduction of ring styles from an older era. The most popular vintage style rings may include those from the Edwardian era (1901-1920) or the Art Deco era (1920-1935). Celebrities wearing vintage style engagement rings include Scarlett Johansson with an Art Deco style ring and fashion icon, Kate Moss.

What is a trilogy ring?
A trilogy ring (or three stone ring) is a timeless classic featuring a cluster of three stones alongside a plain metal band. Often, the centre stone is slightly larger than the two stones either side. The symbolic meaning behind the trilogy ring is that each stone represents the past, present and future. One of the most recent examples of a stunning trilogy ring may be Meghan Markle's. This exquisite design features a large diamond from Botswana with two diamonds from Princess Diana's personal collection either side.
