Between establishing a budget and navigating "the four c's," shopping for an engagement ring can be a daunting task. In addition to the aforementioned logistics, you also have to decide which design is most representative of your personal style.

From a pear-shaped diamond ring that exudes vintage vibes to an unconventional (in the best way) marquise diamond ring, these designs may look simple, but trust us, they're anything but boring.
