This Is Pinterest’s Most Popular Engagement Ring of 2017 (So Far)

Choosing an engagement ring can be a daunting task, especially considering it may be one of the few pieces of jewelry you’ll wear every day for the rest of your life. (No pressure or anything.) Settling in on your style—Classic? Modern? Elaborate? Simple?—is a solid place to start, and Pinterest is often a helpful tool, what with its plethora of gorgeous pins to peruse. The website can also help you keep tabs on what is trending and what is falling out of favor in the world of engagement rings, based on the number of pins a certain pic has racked up.

According to that methodology, classic engagement rings with a vintage twist are going to be all the rage this year, considering the site’s most popular engagement ring of 2017 (so far, at least) is a simple solitaire with an Art Deco–style band.

The engagement ring features a brilliant round solitaire diamond set on a thin simple rose gold band. The wedding band alongside it is also set in rose gold, featuring a vintage design with smaller diamonds surrounded by a mill-grain feature. The combination is delicate and dainty and proves that sometimes less can actually be more. Additionally, the traditional design (a classic solitaire) set in a more popular metal choice (rose gold) updates the look and adds an extra level of interest.

In other words, the pairing is nothing short of gorgeous.

Pinterest users apparently agree, as the ring—originally uploaded by its owner, Sylvia Billone—has been pinned nearly 104,000 times. Billone revealed to the Daily Mail that she custom designed the rings herself and that they were inspired by other Pinterest designs she had seen.

The simple design is quite a large departure from one of 2016’s most popular engagement rings on Pinterest: an intricate white-gold Verragio ring. But one famous recent bride may be responsible for propelling this trend toward classic styles with vintage elements: Trendsetter Pippa Middleton, who recently wed James Matthews in May, paired her Art Deco–style engagement ring with a basic gold band, too.
