Regardless of the type of solitaire setting you choose, one thing is certain: a solitaire engagement ring is a timeless and elegant choice that is always impressive. And opting for a simple and understated design like Hailey Bieber’s engagement ring is a great way to showcase the natural beauty of a high-quality diamond.
When choosing an oval cut diamond, you should be most aware of the bowtie effect, a phenomenon where a dark, bowtie-shaped area appears in the center of the stone. The effect is caused by the proportions of the stone along with the way that light interacts with the diamond’s facets. This creates a shadow in the center of the stone that resembles a bowtie. The severity of the bowtie depends on a number of factors including the diamond’s cut, clarity, and color, and diamond’s that are cut too shallow or too deep may be more prone to the bowtie effect.
To achieve a look that replicates Haily Bieber’s engagement ring, you’ll want to look for an elongated oval shape for the diamond. Most oval diamonds will have a length-to-width ratio between 1.34 to 1.42, and noticeably elongated ovals will have a ratio above 1.5. And while her ring technically has a hidden halo, it’s quite hard to detect. If a hidden halo is a design feature you’d like to incorporate with a classic solitaire oval diamond setting, it’s helpful to look to Kourtney Kardashian’s engagement ring for inspiration.
The standout features of Hailey Bieber’s engagement ring are the incredible oval cut diamond and the smooth, polished yellow gold band. The brilliance and sparkle of the stone is the star of the show, just as it is with our Ariya. This timeless ring features a 2.0 carat oval cut diamond set in yellow gold with a simple, 4-prong setting.
Hailey’s ring is all about simple touches, and we incorporated that concept with Molly. A delicate and slightly different double band in rose gold leads to a softly curved basket. And Jebaun features the perfect subtle hidden halo on a platinum basket holding a 2.5 carat oval diamond all on a defined and distinctive yellow gold band.
As Hailey Bieber’s engagement ring proves, solitaire engagement rings are timeless, elegant, and sophisticated, and loved by every generation. Focus your efforts on choosing an excellent oval cut diamond and the metal color that you love, and you’ll have a piece that will complement your personal style forever.
