This is up to the taste of the wearer. If they appreciate more subtle gestures, a simple engagement ring might be a good option. They are also often more affordable, making them more accessible. Simple rings can be very sophisticated and eye-catching in a refined way.
This is a ring that does not have too many embellishments. Often with a solitaire setting or a simple band. These are a good option for those looking to have a more understated engagement ring that is also easier to care for and will always be fashionable.
Small rings can be simple and feature only one gemstone with minimalist design elements as well as have a thinner band and a lighter center stone. However, small rings can also be complicated and feature elaborate designs or several gemstones, as long as they are tiny. The same thing goes with simple rings, they can be both large and small, but as long as the focus of the ring is the center stone and they do not feature elaborate designs then they qualify as a ‘simple’ ring.
Simple engagement rings can be less expensive, but just like all ring types, their price is influenced by the type of materials used in the ring. For example, a very high-quality colorless diamond set in platinum with few embellishments is a simple ring but will be more expensive than an elaborate floral engagement ring with moissanite.
Although simple rings do a great job of drawing attention to the center stone, others may find that they prefer the ring to have more gemstones to add a bit more variety to the ring. Whether one engagement ring style is better than the other is dependent on the individual taste and preference of the wearer.
