It seems like the idea these days is the bigger the ring, the better.
For some, this might be the case. For others, and maybe you, there’s something appealing about the simpler things in life. Dainty, petite engagement rings have all the charm of their more extravagant counterparts without the flair. There are so many reasons to love dainty rings, and if any of the following describe you, they might be the perfect engagement ring choice for your lifestyle:
You Like Simple
Life doesn’t always have to be about the pomp and circumstance. Sometimes simple things like reading a good book on a rainy day, a phone call from a loved one, or an evening in with your partner mean the world. If simple is your style, dainty rings are a perfect match.
Ring: The Layla
You Don’t Want to Draw Too Much Attention
Do you prefer to blend into the background and observe rather than be observed? Then you definitely won’t be tempted by the kind of rings that demand attention. Instead, you’ll be happier with a ring that’s just like you; elegant, but in an understated way.
You Want a Backup Ring for Different Occasions
Maybe you do like larger stones or fancier designs, but you know that a ring like that doesn’t always suit every occasion. Luckily for you, petite rings are happy to step in and take over when you’re traveling, hiking, at work, or really anywhere that you wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing your larger ring.
Ring: The Ava
Your Job Requires a Less Flashy Ring
Speaking of work, you might have a job that isn’t suited to a large-stone ring. This could mean you have to work with your hands a lot, you’re frequently in locations where expensive items draw the wrong kind of attention, or there’s a chance your ring could break or get in the way. Instead of foregoing a ring altogether, just choose something smaller!
Ring: The Layla
You’re a Minimalist
The minimalist lifestyle is all about wanting little and having less. That means saying no to unnecessary jewelry, but an engagement ring is the exception! If you want to stick with minimalism while still wearing a ring, what’s more suitable than a minimalist ring? The simplicity will fit into your way of life seamlessly.
Ring: The Daisy
You’re Not a Fan of Jewelry
Not all of us have jewelry boxes full to the brim. If you’re not accustomed to wearing earrings and necklaces, let alone rings, you might find a large engagement ring unfamiliar and uncomfortable. A dainty ring won’t feel too cumbersome or strange, and you might even find that you like jewelry, as long as it’s simple.
Bracelet: The Hope
You Have a Limited Budget
If you’re after a beautiful, elegant ring, but you don’t have a lot to spend or you’d prefer not to blow your budget on a ring, you’re looking for dainty rings. Since the stones are smaller, they’re less expensive, but that doesn’t mean they’re lacking anything in the looks department. Available in rose gold and silver bands with a variety of different cuts, our petite rings say “I do” without making your wallet say “please don’t.”
