#2. Delicate & Detailed Rose Gold Engagement Ring
This lovely, detailed design is the Kate Middleton of rings: classic, yet feminine; modest, yet beautiful.
Though the band is delicate and the diamond is simple, it's surrounded with a unique halo design that's fit for a princess.
Rose gold lends a unique, modern touch to this timeless design. It's the perfect accessory for anyone with a feminine style, and we couldn't be more thrilled to design this custom ring for the happy couple.

The result? This stunning twist on our classic Zoey design, which features an elegant cushion-cut diamond on a slim rose gold band. We're just as obsessed with this dainty style as we are with Julia and Genesis as a couple.
This custom ring is one-of-a-kind -- but fill out an inquiry on our website, and we'd be happy to help you replicate this delicate style!

This stunning twist on the solitaire diamond features a dainty band with a bezel-set cathedral diamond in yellow gold.
Customize the band to your liking with your choice of yellow gold, rose gold, white gold or platinum to leave your partner starstruck as you get down on one knee.

#5. Sapphire-Cut Grey Diamond Engagement Ring Ring
Not into traditional engagement rings? We've got you covered! Put the perfect spin on a classic style by opting for a grey diamond instead.
Grey diamonds are one of the rarer types of gems, yet are less pricey than their counterparts, such as yellow and blue diamonds. This makes the grey diamond the perfect fit for a non-traditional bride!
This design features a sapphire-cut grey diamond with a four-prong setting, accented by a delicate bejeweled band. Unique though it may be, fear not: this engagement ring is certainly not lacking in the sparkle department!
#6. Single-Halo Diamond on a Mixed-Metal Band
One of our favorite ways to shake up a classic ring design here at Honey is to play with different metals. In this design, we found that mixing white and rose gold lent just the right amount of feminine charm to this stunning dainty diamond.
As delicate as this design may be, we firmly believe in paying attention to the details -- which is why there's a lot going on in this ring.
In addition to mixing metals, we also added a single-halo to this round-cut diamond and pave accents along the band. After all, why settle for a mass-marketed engagement ring when you could have the unique design of your dreams?
#7. East-West Set Diamond Engagement Ring in Yellow Gold
Our clients Jason and Ashley fell in love with this East-West set engagement ring -- as did we!
It's incredible how a detail as small as the orientation of the stone can lend such a modern and unique touch to a design.
In addition to the horizontally-set marquis stone, this delicate ring features a warm yellow gold band, which offers a nice contrast to the clarity and color of the solitaire diamond.

#8. Pear-Shaped Morganite Engagement Ring with Halo
This custom-designed pink morganite ring is PEAR-fection, if we do say so ourselves!
Morganite isn't a diamond at all, but rather a rare semi-precious stone in the same family as emerald and sapphire. Morganite is perfect for the shopper on a budget since it's much more affordable than diamonds -- without compromising the sparkle.
The dainty band of this non-traditional stone allows the uniqueness of the gem to stand as the centerpiece. Meanwhile, we added a little bit of extra glitter with a delicate single-halo and slim pave band.
#9. Single-Halo Princess-Cut Engagement Ring
You may have noticed that one of our favorite ways to play with traditional engagement ring designs is to alter the orientation of the diamond.
By setting this princess-cut diamond at an angle, we lent a modern twist to this classic, yet dainty design.
Of course, we didn't stop there! We also added accent diamonds and a single-halo to this rose-gold band to give it some extra sparkle while lending a feminine twist.
#10. Dainty Three-Stone Engagement Ring with Half Moon & Oval Diamonds
Just because a ring is dainty doesn't mean the diamonds have to be!
We don't think three-stone rings get enough love, which is why we decided to highlight this stunning pairing of an oval-cut diamond flanked by two half-moon stones.
One of the reasons why we love this custom ring is that the delicate band allows the stones to take center-stage.
It's the perfect engagement ring for the girl who loves all things that glitter but doesn't want to weigh down a dainty finger with an elaborate band.
#11. Kite-Shaped Diamond Engagement Ring Inspired by the Night Sky
Our client Justin encouraged us to venture off the beaten path with this ring -- and we're so glad we did! This kite-shaped diamond needed a setting that was as unique as its shape, so we took inspiration from the heavens to create a band reminiscent of the constellations.
This engagement ring serves as the perfect North Star to encourage your partner never to lose sight of your love. Because what better way to show your commitment to one another than a ring inspired by one of the most enduring things of all time: the stars?
#12. Princess-Cut Engagement Ring with Bezel-Set Band
For this design, we drew inspiration from two classic rings: the solitaire princess-cut engagement ring and the bezel-set wedding band.
By combining a gorgeous princess-cut diamond with a bezel-set band in rose gold, we created a delicate, feminine ring that any bride will love.
Naturally, this ring got a "YES!" from our client's fiancee -- and we would be just as thrilled to replicate it for your special day.
Add your own customizations, from the metal of the band to the cut of the diamond, for a delicate ring with a personal touch.
#13. Oval Engagement Ring with Zero-Gap-Halo
Ever notice a gap between the diamond and the halo in a store-bought engagement ring? Our signature Zero-Gap-Halo solves this problem by making the transition from the halo to the diamond completely seamless.
This oval diamond with a dainty band is the perfect example of our Zero-Gap-Halo. The rose gold band adds a delicate, feminine touch to this stunning solitaire diamond with a single-halo, without the gap you get in many mass-marketed designs.
#14. Pear-Shaped Engagement Ring with Pave Set Band
Working on this pear-shaped diamond engagement ring for the happy couple was a true pleasure! This dainty ring stuns and sparkles with its beautiful pear-shaped solitaire diamond and a glittering pave-set band.
Set in rose gold, this engagement ring will wow your future bride without overwhelming slim fingers. This dainty design is perfect for those who love a bejeweled look, without appearing ostentatious.
#15. Oval-Cut Pink Sapphire Engagement Ring
We posted this gorgeous pink sapphire ring on our Instagram when we reached 20,000 followers way back in 2017 -- so naturally, this design is close to our hearts! A pink sapphire symbolizes good fortune, power through hardships and intense love and compassion, making it the perfect stone to start off your marriage.
Pink sapphires are rare, non-traditional stones, yet less expensive than diamonds. You may want to consider a delicate pink sapphire engagement ring like this one featuring an oval-cut diamond and shared prong band if you are shopping for a stone on a budget.
#16. Geometric Champagne Diamond Engagement Ring
When our client requested something special yet easy on the wallet for his beautiful bride, this gorgeous hexagonal ring was the result.
The centerpiece of this ring is a champagne diamond, a naturally occurring diamond that's tinted with brown. Champagne diamonds are beautiful and rare, yet affordable compared to other diamonds.
Set in yellow gold, this custom ring was crafted in the Honey way. We pay the utmost attention to detail and carefully craft every piece with love, so you will forever have something truly special to remember your engagement by!
#17. Radiant Cut Set in Platinum Pave
For a ring that's both delicate and classic, we recommend this radiant cut stone set in a platinum band.
Radiant diamonds are specially cut in a facet pattern on the pavilion and crown to maximize the diamond's brilliance, the amount light reflected by the stone.
Platinum lends a clean look to the ring that, when combined with the clarity of the diamond, allows your bride's finger to truly sparkle. The band is also studded with pave stones -- because what's wrong with a little extra shimmer?
#18. Oval Halo Cathedral-Cut Engagement Ring
Our Catherine style with a cathedral-cut diamond is a staple in our Classic Honey Collection for a reason: what more could you possibly want in a dainty engagement ring than a gorgeous, glittering halo surrounding an oval-shaped diamond?
Set in our signature Zero-Gap-Halo style, this cathedral-cut diamond is guaranteed to glitter and shine. Add in a yellow gold pave band for a timeless, yet delicate ring style that any bride will love.
#19. Round Halo Cathedral Engagement Ring
Another classic yet delicate style, the Caroline round cathedral engagement ring is the sister style to our most popular design, which features prominently in the Classic Honey Collection.
This round solitaire diamond sparkles with our signature Zero-Gap-Halo. Combined with a white gold band, it's impossible not to be enchanted by the Caroline ring and its stunning simplicity.
This cathedral-style engagement ring offers the perfect blend of delicacy and glamour, making it an intuitive choice for your future fiancee.
#20. Asscher Cut Diamond Engagement Ring
If you're looking for a gem that stands out from the crowd, try an Asscher cut diamond engagement ring. These unique stones are an underappreciated take on the classic solitaire diamond, which is why we were thrilled to design this one-of-a-kind ring for our client.
This Asscher cut diamond engagement ring features a four-pronged setting and a rose gold band, lined with pave stones. Its delicate band and modest stone mean it's the perfect fit for fans of all things dainty.
#21. Pave Round Solitaire Engagement Ring
Our Sarah pave solitaire engagement ring is a crowd-pleaser because of its endless opportunities for customization. Another staple of the Classic Honey Collection, Sarah holds any size or shape diamond and is available in rose gold, yellow gold, white gold and platinum metals.
This ring is the perfect dainty design for someone who wants just a hint of sparkle without going over-the-top. Pave accent stones on the band offer a touch of extra glitter, yet don't overshadow the solitaire stone.
