Dainty Engagement Rings

Showing all 39 results

Not all engagement rings have to be large to make a statement. Dainty rings are characterized by smaller gemstones and thinner bands used in the ring design. A dainty ring is very practical and suitable for a low-key bride with a minimalist sense of style. Dainty rings are also practical as they may be more comfortable to wear than other ring designs due to their smaller size. And depending on the gemstones and metals used in the ring design they may also be more affordable. While dainty rings will normally also be simpler in design and feature a solitaire gem, some dainty rings can feature more elaborate designs such as pave diamonds and split shanks to give the ring more detail and character while maintaining its small size. They are becoming increasingly popular especially among younger people because of their subtlety, stylish charm, and timelessness.
  • What does a dainty ring mean?

    A dainty engagement ring is all about small ring size and a simple design that normally features a solitaire diamond. The smaller and simpler the ring, the daintier it is. The ring shank width also plays a role in how dainty an engagement ring is.

  • Is it OK to have a small engagement ring?

    Small engagement rings are a great choice for those who prefer to have a low-maintenance ring that is still fashionable. Bigger isn’t always better and a ring choice is ultimately up to the taste and personal style of the wearer. They are also a great choice because they may be more comfortable to place on fingers because of the fighter weight and are considerably more affordable than more elaborate or ‘heavier’ ring designs.

  • Do thin engagement rings break?

    If a band is too thin it will bend and eventually break easier. Some jewelers recommend that bands that are less than 1.3mm thick should not be worn every day and should be well taken care of. Ideally, most rings should not be less than 1.8mm thick in order to increase their durability.

  • Is a 1-carat diamond ring too small?

    A 1-carat diamond is perfectly large enough to attract attention, and a 1-carat is often considered the benchmark for a standard-size engagement ring. In the US, the average size of an engagement ring is 1.08 carats, and almost half of the engagement rings weigh between 1-1.2 carats.

  • Is a 2-carat diamond considered to be big?

    Given that the average engagement ring diamond is 1.08 carats, a 2-carat diamond would be considered big.

  • What is the difference between a dainty engagement ring and a simple engagement ring?

    Most dainty rings may be simple, but not all simple rings are dainty. Daintiness is a matter of size whereas simple engagement rings are characterized by more minimalist designs and styles that feature only one gemstone. You can have a simple engagement ring that is either large or the standard size of an engagement ring.
