Picking an engagement ring that embodies your style and personality is the most important jewelry decision you’ll probably make your whole life. There’s so much to choose from too — from trending styles like ruby rings with floral motifs to vintage beauties that transport you to another time.
If you’re someone who wants a style that will stand the test of time but that isn’t your everyday solitaire, then modern-style rings are perfect for you. They’re sleek, versatile and unique all at once. Some make a bigger statement than others, but the spectrum of contemporary styles allows you to pick the one that fits you best. To give you an idea of what these pieces look like, we’ve rounded up 5 different styles that run the gamut.
There are plenty of ways to make a round cut anything but ordinary, and one of our favorite ways to put a modern spin on a classic is with halos and unique shanks. One of the best examples of this transformation is seen in one of our Infinity Collection rings. The 3-Carat Round Diamond Halo Engagement Ring with Infinity-Style Crisscross Shank features an infinity-style criss-cross double shank with round brilliant cut diamonds U-pave set down only one stroke of the infinity shank. And if that wasn’t enough to make your eyes sparkle, we added more shine up into the halo, which is outfitted with 22 more rounds.

Style # SWUS5778CR
Just because you like a matching bridal set doesn’t mean you have to stick to traditional looks.

The wedding band doubles as a fabulous starter to your bridal stack! Find this Us Collection set in yellow, rose and white gold.
The modern woman isn’t limited to colorless diamonds. For those who want to take their personal expression a step further, color is one of the best ways to make a statement. And we don’t mean a subtle pop from side stones or gemstone accents in your wedding band. We mean make that color the focal point! This Radiant-Cut Yellow Diamond Halo Ring from the Natureal Collection creates a new and modern expression of your love with a 1.30-carat center stone and diamonds galore. You’ll find round diamonds adorning the halo, upper shank and the bridge under the halo.
