Ethan Lord can shine some light on any and all your engagement ring questions as well as give you an idea of what each style looks like. Here are five of the trendiest ring styles of 2021.

1) Solitaire Ring

This is perhaps the most classic and timeless style of all the rings. Its simple yet elegant design consists of one breathtaking diamond. The upside to this is it will allow you to pick the highest-quality stone your budget can afford. There's no need to worry about trying to pair the engagement ring to the wedding band as its clean, streamlined design can easily be dressed up or down to match any occasion.

2) Princess Cluster Cut

A bold, square-cut stone surrounded by a cluster of shimmering diamonds characterizes the princess cut. Sometimes this style is set in a three-tiered design that adds depth and dimension to a multi-faceted diamond. This style of ring is perfect for a girl who is trendy and chic but also a princess at heart.

3) Round Diamond Cluster

For 2021, the "cluster" is in. This ring puts a beautiful, round diamond on display, and it's surrounded by a ring of smaller diamonds, thus lending it its name. The cluster of smaller stones works to create a dazzling effect when light hits and refracts off of all the diamond's facets.

4) Halo Pear Style

This pear-shaped stone is encircled by a row of diamonds, giving it the appearance of having a "halo." The presence of smaller diamonds surrounding the centerpiece is supposed to give the illusion that the main diamond is bigger than your budget may initially allow.

5) Three-Stone Ring

The three-stone ring symbolizes the past, present, and future of a relationship. It's also easy to customize. There's no need to stick with the classic, three-diamond approach. A popular choice is to accent the centerpiece diamond with the birthstones of the happy couple.

The Four Cs

Whatever ring you decide to put on your fiance's finger, keep in mind the four Cs:

Carat - One carat is equal to 200 milligrams. It's the unit of measurement for diamonds and other precious stones. The typical size of a diamond on an engagement ring is one carat.

Cut - This can be somewhat deceiving because it does not mean the shape of the diamond. Instead, it refers to the symmetry and number of faucets the stone has.

Color - Even white diamonds are graded on a scale. That's because the closer to colorless they are, the more valuable they become.

Clarity - Clarity refers to how many imperfections and natural blemishes the diamond has that may cloud the surface.

Before Buying the Ring

If the bigger the rock the better is her style, don't worry. Many people fear they won't be able to afford a large diamond, but you can always sacrifice clarity for carat. There's the synthetic diamond, too. They're lab-grown, but you can buy bigger for less, and they won't have any natural blemishes. It can be stressful looking for the perfect engagement ring, but at the end of the day, don't sweat it too much. A diamond is a girl's best friend—she's going to love it!
