FAQs about Classic Engagement Rings

A classic engagement ring features simple design details that allow it to hold up to the test of time. There's nothing more classic than a round brilliant diamond solitaire engagement ring, but infinity and pavé engagement rings also make a sparkling, time-tested choice.

The most classic and most popular diamond shape sold at Blue Nile is the round brilliant-cut diamond, but oval and emerald-cut diamonds are classic, vintage-inspired choices, too.

When it comes to traditionally classic engagement rings, white gold and yellow gold are the clear winners. Platinum engagement rings offer the same bright look of white gold but are far more durable.

No. Wedding bands are not included with the engagement ring, but many engagement ring designs do offer matching wedding bands that you can select at the same time to create a perfect set.

Classic Engagement Ring with Round Cut Diamond Review

The best purchase I’ve made

This is a stunning ring. The attention to detail and clarity is impeccable. I was nervous that 1 carat wouldn’t have the wow factor I was looking for, but I was gladly mistaken. The diamond size is perfect on a classic solitaire band and sparkles like nothing I’ve ever seen. She said yes and I couldn’t be happier.

Classic Diamond Engagement Ring Review

Petite Cathedral Pave Diamond Engagement Ring

I spent some days going through the site to find the best ring for my soon to be fiance. It was a surprise engagement and with the restrictions we all have with Covid-19, I was not going to be able to go look at rings in stores. I had never looked at rings before so it all felt new to me regarding carat sizes and qualities to look for. Blue Nile's site gives you so much detail on what each quality means and you can make adjustments on your requirements to let you find and see the right diamond. I started with picking the diamond before looking at the setting options. The site has links to understand more about picking an item based on your budget but also what you care more about. I was able to realise high quality was the most important thing, I set my parameters to give me some of the limits I wanted and picked the diamond that was not only amazing in quality adn shine but it was also the right size and price. I then used their chat option and spoke to one of their experts for a second opinion on what i was choosing. They gave me some options based on other adjustments I could make and reinforced my feeling that the settings i used to pick the diamond I wanted were good for what i was looking for. It is incredible that you can see the diamond and even any imperfections if one chose to pick one with less clarity. I picked my diamond, and went for the settings. I found this amazing looking pave ring with a flying buttress design, I love classic architecture and this ring caught my eye in seconds. The ring arrived on the date it was supposed to, in a box that didn't have BLUE NILES all over it, so I managed to be discreet when I put it to the side even though she was the one that ended up picking it up. She was speechless when she saw the ring and has smiled every time she sees it. Thank you so much for a site that allowed me to make this magical moment so easy to create.
