Top Engagement Ring Styles for the Anti Girly Girl

So you're not a girly girl, but a woman through and through. While other ladies might be bedazzling themselves from head to toe in diamond earrings and extravagant bangle bracelets, you might be more of the hemp and beads type of gal. Not to worry! The thought of now having to wear a ring on your finger forever might freak you out a little, but you can relax with the help of Gottlieb & Sons. We promise it won't be pink or flowery. Deep breaths!

 

Bigger isn’t Always Better

There's a common misconception when it comes to engagement rings that the bigger the bling, the nicer the ring...and while there's nothing wrong with giant diamonds, these things just aren't for the tomboy type. But that’s not to say you can’t add a little sparkle without blinding everyone you wave at. Thin bands with diamond accents like this one can be just the right amount of glimmer you need to feel feminine without going over the top.

 

Something Sapphire

Just like it’s now totally acceptable to rock a pantsuit to work instead of a dress, you can wear a more subtle engagement ring that doesn’t scream girly girl. This gorgeous ring with sapphire accents is perfect for the woman who embraces the fact that she may not be all florals and frills, but she still has great taste in jewelry.

 

Shoot for Gold

The anti girly girl isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty, so choosing a ring with fewer details is a must. For every groove in your ring, that’s another minute you’re going to spend cleaning gunk out of it, and as a famous meme once said, “ain’t nobody got time for that”. If you’re the type of girl that also tends to appreciate quality over quantity, opt for a simple band with a beautiful center solitaire diamond like this one.

 

Three’s Company

One of the best things about the non-girly girl personality is that you’re practical. You’re not going to wear a skirt you can barely walk in, and you’re definitely not going to wear a ring that’s going to get caught on everything and get in your way. Choosing a ring with a smooth band and embedded diamonds like this gorgeous trifecta of awesomeness is exactly what you need.

 

Strikingly Solid

Does shopping for a ring make you want to tie up your running shoes and run for the hills? We promise there’s something for everyone, even the girl who isn’t a fan of all the fanciness. This gorgeous thick banded ring is strong and beautiful, just like its soon to be owner (lookin’ at you!).

 

It doesn’t matter if the other girls have always fantasized about their engagement rings-- sometimes the best decisions are clean-cut and practical, just like these options. Your ring can be simple and easy-to-wear, while still being as gorgeous as anyone else’s. You can truly have the best of both worlds!

Ring Styles for your Personality

So, your significant other listened to Beyoncé, and wants to put a ring on it?  Congrats!  But, are you now a little overwhelmed by the mission to find just THE perfect engagement ring?  Does it seem like Mission Impossible with so many options out there?  Well, the best strategy is just to relax and let your instincts (and maybe also your budget?) guide you.  Because ultimately, choosing the right engagement ring is pretty much an instinctive thing – you will likely be naturally drawn to designs that reflect your personality and taste, and you will know which ring should adorn your finger the minute you spot it.  It will be one of those Oprah’s “Aha” moments!

 

 

Practical

If you’re someone who chooses function over fashion, consider a solitaire set. With its classic simplicity, this setting evokes a subtle beauty—perfect for ladies who prefer taking a quieter approach to being fabulous. And best of all, it can easily match with your other jewelry pieces, making the art of coordination a delightful no-brainer.

Trendy

If you’re a diva who likes to stand out from the crowd, there are plenty of contemporary designs available. Halo settings, where your stone is encased by a heavenly pillow of small diamonds, is hugely popular. You could also explore the different shapes of stones available, from circular to marquise.

If you’re still not sure, you can add some oomph with a mixed metal band, or a pop of color such as rose gold. Who says engagement rings can’t make a statement?

Classy

Maybe you’re the traditional type? In that case, you’ll adore all things antique. Get the classic look with a gorgeous vintage inspired engagement ring, featuring rose and white gold. Elegantly complimenting your freshly polished manicure and designer clutch, you’ll be thinking, “I’m so fancy. You already know!” while sipping on your low-fat latte and reapplying your rouge lipstick.

Glitzy

For the foot-stomping bridezilla, glitz is the way to go! Jam-packed with high-quality diamonds, sapphires and a fat rock, you’ll join the exclusive club of A-list engagement rings.  While inexpensive (and totally brag-worthy), you can treat your finger like royalty, giving her a crown fit for Kate Middleton herself.

You can wear it alone as a stunning statement piece or go wild by matching it with other jewelry. Go bling or go home!

Bohemian

If you’re a bohemian or a romantic soul, you’re best to simply follow your heart. Ignore the trends, the hype and the pressure to be fashionable and choose a ring that genuinely speaks to you. It could be unique, quirky or vintage— walk your own line when it comes to finding the perfect design. This way, whatever you choose will make a natural accompaniment to your carefree style, whether you’re a guitar player, hemp wearer or completely addicted to sriracha.

There are, of course, a few other styles betwixt and between those mentioned here.  But the point is, to think about and settle on a handful of descriptors that feel true to your personality and style before you embark on your engagement ring quest.  And once you’ve armed yourself with this critical criteria, it shouldn’t be too long before you’ll be waving your left hand in front of your friends to the tune of their sincere “Ahhs” and “Wows”!
