When we say “engagement ring” the first thing that springs to many minds is a dazzling round stone on a band of gold. Loved for their simplicity, elegance, and versatility, round cut stones are the most popular choice for that special ring. For all your round cut engagement ring inspiration, we’ve rounded up a collection of our favorites.
In a list featuring the most popular stone cut for engagement rings, it’d be rude not to start with a classic diamond solitaire! This beautiful brilliant round cut diamond is set in yellow gold with dainty, petal shaped prongs turning the gallery into a stunning bloom. Delicate diamond accents trickle down the pavé set band that gently tapers to a point as it approaches the center diamond.
Let’s switch gears from simple to anything but! Our next ring is the perfect example of how diverse the round cut can be. The stunning round amethyst takes center stage with a unique embellished bezel. White gold skulls sit on either side of the center stone, and the dramatically wide split shank, diamond accented band sweeps past the top and bottom of the setting. The overall effect looks like an otherworldly eye keeping watch over its wearer!
Round cut stones aren’t just solitary creatures — they play very well with others and this diamond and ruby beauty proves it! The round cut center diamond sits between two clusters of round cut diamond and ruby accents, with a couple of princess cut rubies thrown in there as well! The yellow gold band swirls around each cluster, barely touching the center stone, and the profile showcases a fancy trellis setting. It’s like a bouquet of perfect red and white roses on your finger!
We couldn’t have a collection of round cut center stone rings without a stunning halo, could we? So here it is, a beautiful round moissanite center stone surrounded by a shimmering halo of moissanite accents. The handful of dazzling stones are brought together in white gold, set high above a Celtic knot band, with peekaboo personalizations on the gallery.
We’re mesmerized by the flashes of blue and purple coming from this round cut alexandrite engagement ring. Set in rose gold, the round cut allows the stone to show off its color-changing magic to full effect. The swirling rose gold band is embellished with paving stone engravings matching the pavé set black diamond accents in the matching wedding band. The two tone bridal set is rounded out with two rose cut salt and pepper diamond accents in the wedding band.
What’s better than one stunning round cut center stone? Three stunning round cut stones of course! This three-stone moissanite engagement ring is spell binding, with pavé set moissanite accents throughout a twisting white gold band. Entwined with this is the curling rose gold bridge that grows with a life of its own. Peekaboo ruby and amethyst accents sit on either side of the gallery.
Our next round cut engagement ring is like a breath of fresh air and serenity. The round cut sapphire center stone is simply set with only four prongs, allowing us to dive into a pool of deep blue bliss. Diamond accents are incorporated into the slim yellow gold band, adding a subtle sparkle without pulling attention from the stunning sapphire.
With our final ring in this list, we’ve come… full circle! We have another diamond solitaire but this one comes with a twist. The round cut center stone is a dramatic black diamond! The striking center stone is offset by a dazzling double halo of white diamond accents, with the ice flowing through to the pavé white gold band.
