Two Engagement Ring Styles to Consider If ‘Cool’ Is What You’re After

Are you and your partner getting close to the we’re-ready-to-tie-the-knot tipping point in your lives? It’s a major milestone and one that requires thoughtfulness - 1) because you want to make sure this is really it, most importantly, but also 2) because spontaneous, unexpected proposals are fun in theory, but at the end of the day, they’re also a gamble. So, here’s our take: let the actual question-popping be a surprise, but do some planning, prep work, and vetting with the ring. You might have had an idea of the engagement ring of your dreams, growing up, but the fact of the matter is, there are so many cool designs available to shop in 2021. And it’s our job to make sure you have all the facts in front of you to inform your engagement fashion. LovBe is unveiling two gorgeous new engagement ring styles this summer, so if ‘is it cool?’ is part of your checklist for saying ‘YES,’ you’ll definitely want to take note!

Cool rings come from cool companies

And these days, cool means creative, cool means kind, cool means conscious, cool means accountable.

Before you see the rings that we’re talking about (because once you do, that whole ‘take your time, be thoughtful’ notion will go out the window, real quick), these are the things you can feel good about if you’re looking for ‘the one’ at LovBe:

  1. LovBe lab grown diamonds are identical in chemical, physical, and optical properties to an Earth-mined diamond. So, that sparkle? It’s there + then some.

  2. LovBe lab grown diamonds allow you to choose significant savings with the flexibility of picking a larger diamond - bigger in size and carat - without any compromises in quality.

  3. LovBe lab grown diamonds are created without ethical or environmental sticking points (i.e. conflict diamonds, unfair wages and unsafe conditions for miners, pollution, habitat destruction, animal endangerment)

Here are the two styles you might think you’ve heard of - but let LovBe break their definitions down even further 

The open bezel (or tension setting)

Sleek and stylish, the Open Bezel is a modern take on a centuries’ old jewelry setting. The open sides surrounding the center stone allow for more light to enter the diamond, thus enhancing the brilliance and maximizing the sparkle on display. The metal hugs the center stone suspending it in place, securely and reliably. Due to the lack of prongs, there is less maintenance required on this setting, making it the perfect option for a low maintenance bride-to-be. The Open Bezel is perfect for round and square cuts, including ovals, cushions, and radiants and it’s available in a range of metals from yellow and rose gold to platinum. Modern yet timeless, this ring will never go out of style.

The hidden halo

These double diamond delights feature a secret only the wearer will be privy to: beyond the magnificent diamond bezel surrounding the center stone, there is a hidden ‘halo’ of pave diamonds just below the center stone on the ring’s setting. While not visible from an initial glance, upon a closer look, this surprise diamond setting shines from within and elevates this extraordinary setting to another level. The hidden halo rests atop a sleek pave band, completing this sparkle-covered look. Hidden Halo settings are available for a range of center stones, from round brilliants and ovals to pear shapes and emerald cuts. For those looking to sparkle inside and out, you’ve found your ring.

Years ago, all anyone wanted to talk about - when it came to an engagement ring - was the size of the diamond. How many carats it was, what kind of setting the stone was in / how it impacted its sparkle factor. 

But today, the cool comes from interesting settings and hidden meanings

It’s pretty awesome if you can tell people that your setting was inspired by your relationship

With the Open Bezel, it’s a nod to your transparent, unimpeded partnership. You don’t put up walls, you allow yourselves to be vulnerable, and ultimately, you prove time and time again how strong and solid the two of you are.

With the Hidden Halo, you’re almost acknowledging that your strength, power, and sparkle as a couple is under the surface a little bit - kind of like a living, breathing example of the famous vows verse “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.” You have things that are just yours to cherish and celebrate, and whether or not you want to share them with the world is only up to you to decide.
