A young couple looking for the perfect women's wedding rings should take a look at what is popular now. They should also decide whether or not they want to have matching wedding rings and whether the bride-to-be wants to wear an engagement ring first. Smaller Diamonds -- More Glitter: A wedding ring with pave diamonds is the most popular design that women are choosing today. This ring is set in tiny, sparkling pave diamonds, which gives the ring a "glimmering" effect without actually seeing each diamond individually. The Heavenly Halo Engagement Ring Setting: The most popular engagement ring today is the halo setting. This is comprised of a larger middle diamond surrounded by a ring of smaller diamonds. This setting makes the center diamond appear larger than it really is. It is also classic, timeless and beautiful. Other Popular Ring Settings: The plain solitaire engagement ring never goes out of style, and neither does the three-stone diamond engagement ring. The cathedral engagement ring set is elegant, beautiful and much sought after. Another popular engagement ring setting is the three-stone combination ring with a center diamond flanked by smaller rubies, sapphires or emeralds. Bands set with channel-set diamonds or gemstones are a another beautiful wedding ring option that couples are choosing. More Bling for Your Ring Dollar: Couples looking for wedding and engagement rings are deciding on the overall look of the rings, rather than the size of the center diamond or the metal grade that the stones are set in.
