We're suckers for any engagement ring — from gigantic, eye-popping rocks (cough cough, Kim Kardashian) to smaller, delicate sparklers — and try not to choose favorites between the styles. But the latest setting style definitely takes the cake: hovering engagement rings.

These Instagram-worthy rings feature rocks that hover off the band, giving that gorgeous, sparkling diamond (or diamonds!) even more room to shine — which is just icing on the cake. Plus, these exquisite settings allow for multiple stones to be the center of attention, whether it's one, two or even three diamonds. Here are a few of our favorite hovering rings.

Rahaminov 's elegant and unique design features a sparkling halo setting that encircles two round-rose-cut diamonds, which are mirrored across a thin diamond-adorned band. The separated components of the ring highlight the brilliance of the two center stones while also giving each individual diamond plenty of room to sparkle. (Price upon request, Rahaminov)
