Engagement Rings

Vintage, cushion cut, antique and rose gold -- shopping for an engagement ring can be overwhelming. We have the advice you need on how much to spend and where to find the best engagement ring that fits your budget and style.

Settings, stones, sets, and solitaires -- it can be easy to get overwhelmed when shopping for engagement rings. Fortunately, we've broken down the process to make it super simple to find the perfect engagement ring for your fiance-to-be. First, think budget. It used to be the rule that an engagement ring should cost what you could earn in two months, but that's an old-school way of thinking. Simply buy the best ring you can afford without going into major debt. Still unsure? We've got great tips for getting the most for your money (like how to make smaller stones look bigger than they are!). Not sure what style to buy? We have hundreds of photos of engagement rings from the industry's top designers to search through -- and advice for choosing the right ring to match her style. But the shopping doesn't stop after she says "yes!" Then it's time to find a wedding band (and not the musical kind!). Opt for wedding ring sets for a uniform look, or go nontraditional with a totally different metal or style. Don't worry, we didn't forget about the guys -- we have suggestions for finding the perfect men's wedding band to suit his style too. In fact, many wedding ring sets come with discounts for the groom's band, so don't forget to ask when you're ring shopping!
