Dainty and demure engagement ring ideas

20 Feb 2018

Keeping it simple and understated, these dainty and demure engagement rings showcase the variety on offer and at a range of price points

Typically featuring a thinner band and smaller gemstones, there is a wealth of dainty engagement ring ideas out there. Perfect for wearers who don't like overly excessive bling, a more subtle engagement ring can look just as sensational.

Yet there are some considerations to bear in mind when searching for such a ring, as Julia Cook, goldsmith and founder of Branch On the Park, explains: “Dainty rings can look gorgeous and are very stylish, however just remember that your engagement ring is for life and something you’ll wear every day so try not to choose anything so tiny and delicate that it bends, breaks or wears away."

Whether you have the privilege of choosing your own engagement ring or are just shopping around as you await a proposal, take a look at these ideas which may just be the perfect accessory for your ring finger.
