The Perfect Wedding Dress to Match Your Engagement Ring
An engagement ring is the ultimate token of love. It’s a symbol of devotion and the promise of forever. It’s also a major part of your wedding day look. In honor of Valentine’s Day, we’ve paired some of our favorite engagement ring shapes and styles with wedding gowns from our latest collections that will make you shine on your big day. Because, of course, your dazzling sparkler deserves an equally stunning dress.
Simple, classic, and timeless, the solitaire diamond engagement ring is brilliant on its own. This Tiffany & Co. Tiffany True diamond-and-platinum engagement ring makes for a flawless accessory to our couture Ella gown. The gown’s soft mermaid silhouette and layers of shimmery tulle will compliment a solitaire diamond’s sparkle and complete your glamorous look.
Contemporary and bold, the emerald-cut diamond befits the modern bride. Graff’s Laurence Graff Signature emerald-cut diamond ring with a diamond pavé band calls for a sophisticated gown like our Simone soft mermaid dress featuring a sheer, flowing cape attached to a sweetheart neckline. The dress’ intricate pearl-and-sequin embroidery will play off of the glimmery diamonds in your ring.
Similar to the square, emerald-cut diamond, but more brilliant because of its cropped corners, the asscher-cut diamond exudes Old World elegance. This David Yurman DY Capri engagement ring with a center asscher-cut diamond surrounded by glittering pavé stones resembles an heirloom piece. Pair it with a regal dress like the Estee A-line princess gown, which features a demure high-neck, but sexy keyhole back.
The multi-faceted, round brilliant-cut diamond is everything but modest. This classic engagement ring radiates light from every angle. Graff’s Icon Setting engagement ring is all dressed up with a gleaming center stone and pavé diamond halo and band. The G-409 sheer mermaid gown from our GALA No. IX collection is just the dreamy dress to pair with this ring for a heavenly look.
For the fashion-forward bride who wants her engagement ring to speak of her style and taste, this Van Cleef & Arpels “Boucle” diamond cluster ring, which resembles a sparkling bow is as special and unique as she is. This charming ring deserves to be flaunted with a fanciful gown like our embroidered tulle Judy trumpet dress with all-over floral embellishments.
Many brides-to-be love the oval-cut diamond because the elongated, symmetrical shape flatters the hand and gives off lots of sparkle. This David Yurman DY Astor engagement ring is adorned with pavé diamonds that make the center stone stand out. This style of ring calls for an effortless, yet sophisticated gown like the G-410, featuring a sleek wrap skirt detail and high side slit.
When a diamond just won’t do for a princess bride, a colored gemstone reigns supreme. Proof: When Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton, he presented her with his mother’s blue sapphire engagement ring. The color of the stone in an engagement ring often carries significant meaning. The ruby, one of the most prized gemstones and rarer than white diamonds, represents love, passion, and romance. Van Cleef & Arpels’ Entrelacs cushion-cut ruby ring with ribbons of diamonds will show off the silver embroidery and pale pink-hued tulle of our Rosa A-line ballgown that’s fit for a modern monarch.
