From solitaires to halo settings, marquise-cut diamonds to trendsetting princess cuts, narrowing down the perfect engagement ring can be a bit overwhelming — even if you're not the one actually buying the stone. With so many styles, band sizes, and gemstones to choose from, getting the inspiration you need to find your forever stone shouldn't be a feat of its own. While classic styles with cushion-cut diamonds are wished for by the traditional bride, other soonly-weds might dream of a striking emerald with a rectangular shape, depending on their taste. The fact that engagement rings are so different from one another is an advantage for every bride, meaning they'll be able to find a stone that perfectly fits them, and their unique love, until the very end.
Whether 2020 is the year you're hoping to get engaged or you simply want to swoon over gorgeous engagement rings from around the globe, we rounded up the most beautiful sparklers that real brides and grooms have said "yes" to over the years. No matter what your ring preference might be, take a peek at the most dazzling rocks ahead, and get ready to be inspired.
