The ultimate guide to engagement ring styles

It may be the holiday season, but around the Bridal Musings’ headquarters, this time of year is better known as “engagement season.”

What better time to pop THE question than the time of year that’s filled to the brim with parties, gift-giving, family, and friends?

And while a new handbag or bottle of perfume would be nice under the tree this year, absolutely nothing can top a sparkly engagement ring (hint hint, for all the lovely gents out there).

If you’re wondering what type of ring to put on your Christmas list, you’ve landed in the right place, my dear.

I’ve put together the ultimate guide to engagement ring styles. So whether you’re wishing for something traditional or modern (or anything in between), you’re sure to find a gem that fits your taste.
