Engagement ring guide

Finding the person you want to spend the rest of your life with may seem easy compared to finding the right engagement ring. Knowing what's available to you is the first step to finding the right piece. There are many details that go into each individual ring, but knowing the major categories helps narrow your choices down. With your new knowledge, you can choose from the Brian Gavin team's collection or create a custom engagement ring completely unique to your fiance. Here's are a few descriptions of the key players to get you on your way:


The name of this style should tip you off to what it looks like. A solitaire engagement ring features a single diamond set atop a metal band. The Four Prong Solitaire by the Brian Gavin team is a great example of this classic piece.

Why brides love it: Solitaire engagement rings are simple and timeless. If she loves her solitaire now, she'll love it forever because these rings are always in style.


Eternity rings - also referred to as pave and side stones - feature a plethora diamonds running along the whole length of the band. Instead of a plain metal band, your fiance will have diamonds wrapping around her finger. These pieces can come as half or partial eternity as well. In that case, the small diamonds don't go around the entire circumference of the ring. Some side stone rings feature a few diamonds scattered around the band. This design creates a pop of light at just the right angle that is both surprising and lovely.

Why brides love it: Eternity bands say a lot about love. The diamonds never end and nor will your relationship. Furthermore, the additional gems create an amazing light reflection that is nothing short of dazzling.

Three stone

As the name implies, three stone rings have three diamonds. These are like the solitaire in design, only with two additional diamonds. Generally these rings feature a large center stone that is flanked by two smaller ones.

Why brides love it: Three stone rings are as timeless as the solitaire but have more shimmer.


Halo rings have a large center stone which is then surrounded by smaller gems that create a halo. A great example of this band is the Halo Engagement Ring by the Brian Gavin team. These pieces may or may not have an eternity band.

Why brides love it: When many small gems are bunched together, they make the center stone seem larger.
