Pinterest Worthy Engagement Rings

December 21, 2018 | Ivy Publications

Charlottesville’s rolling vineyards and stunning vistas provide the perfect backdrop for a romantic proposal. In fact, many of the couples featured in our sister publication, Charlottesville Wine & Country Weddings, return to our area to wed after proposing here.

So, whether you are planning a proposal yourself, or are hoping to drop a hint or two this holiday season, we turned to one of our local jewelry experts, Schwarzschild Keller & George for some engagement ring inspiration and to learn more about 3 current trends:

Round Cut: 

While we saw this beautiful style emerge in popularity a few years ago, this classic look is here to stay with stunning settings, like this Split Shank Ring from the Hearts on Fire collection.

Oval Cut:

Perhaps the most recent style to become trendy, oval cut diamond rings are on the rise with brides Hailey Baldwin and Julianne Hough rocking this dramatic style, like the Precision Set Ring below.

Pear Cut: 

This style has been growing in popularity, with celebrities like Sophie Turner, Margot Robbie, Kaley Cuoco and Paris Hilton all donning pear cut engagement rings. Below, the Destiny Teardrop Halo Ring, also from the Hearts on Fire collection, showcases this vintage look.

You can find these and more engagement rings at Schwarzschild Keller & George, which has Charlottesville and Richmond locations. Looking for proposal inspiration?
