28 Pretty Pearl Engagement Rings
When you think of an engagement ring, you probably don't immediately envision a pearl as the center stone—but that doesn't mean pearls aren't a stunning choice for this important piece of jewelry. When it comes to precious gemstones, pearls are as classic as they come. Vintage lovers and alternative and modern brides alike will fall hard for the Old-world elegance of a pearl engagement ring.
The simple sophistication of a pearl can easily stand alone as a solitaire or bezel-set stunner. You could also make it shimmer in a pavé setting with a sophisticated, thin halo. But there are some surprising ways to set a pearl engagement ring, too. Alya Personalized offers an enchanting rose-hued pearl surrounded by smaller, shimmering stones, while designers including Jemma Wynne and Lynn Ban Jewelry pair a larger pearl with smaller diamonds on opposite sides of the setting. The look blends the traditional with the modern in the coolest way you could imagine.
There are incredibly decadent ways to design a pearl ring as well. Kataoka offers a large pearl set in a vintage-inspired band, complete with a cluster of deco-like diamonds and a pavé band. Tiffany & Co., on the other hand, plants its pearl in the center of a sparkly diamond halo. And Mizuki proves that pearls lend themselves to three-stone settings, too, with a beautiful ring that features one large center pearl and two smaller gemstones on either side. Creative types, vintage girls, and brides looking for something slightly different will all go crazy for this gorgeous engagement ring setting. Plus, a pearl engagement ring can be a more budget-friendly alternative to some of the more popular gemstones out there!
