1. Moissanite gems
Moissanite is a naturally occurring mineral also known as silicon carbide.
But the natural stone is incredibly rare, so most of the moissanite we have available today was created in a laboratory.
It’s typically engineered to be sparkly as a diamond, and most people aren’t able to tell the difference between the two.
The best part? It’s eco-friendly (because it has minimal impact on the environment) and is less expensive than a diamond.
2. Art deco
Art deco rings are characterised by their bold and striking geometric lines.
They come in vintage-inspired styles and are more often than not glamorously dramatic.
The most popular centrepiece for an art deco ring is the diamond, but a ruby or sapphire stone isn’t all that unusual.
If you’re looking for something with antique charm, this is just the type to go for.
3. Oval stones
Oval rings usually feature oval cut diamonds. The elegant shape is a nice alternative to the more common round cut.
They’re just the thing if you want a ring with modern shape but with traditional light refraction.
They also help give the illusion of a longer finger, so it’s perfect if you’re self-conscious of your stubby ones.
And ICYMI, Kate Middleton wears one — it was Princess Diana’s ring. So as you can imagine, this is one regal ring.
