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.
Small engagement rings are a great choice for those who prefer to have a low maintenance ring which 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.
Whilst dainty engagement rings tend to have smaller stones… smaller need not mean small. A dainty ring with a slender band can still be topped by a multi-karat diamond, and said diamond can still be embellished with other stones, a halo setting etc. Dainty and tiny, and not the same thing!
