Last week we revealed the "most-pinned wedding dress on Pinterest," which got us wondering...what are brides all over the world fawning over on the social media platform? What's the most popular wedding cake? Or flowery bouquet? Well, those questions will just have to wait for a later date because apparently, and we say this loosely, the most-pinned engagement ring on Pinterest has been uncovered — and if you consider yourself a princess bride, you're totally gonna L-O-V-E it. It's seriously Cinderella-approved.
According to HelloGiggles, the most popular engagement ring on our fave wedding-planning site is a $4,300 intricate Verragio diamond ring. Raymond Lee Jewelers describes the ring as being 18k white gold with .45 carats of sparkling diamonds, featuring a diamond twisted split shank along with lace embellishments. It's been pinned an estimated 63,000 times, and after looking at all of its little details it's not hard to see why!
But even though we were smitten with this particular bling, we had to do some deeper digging on Pinterest. And what we found is that although this Verragio ring does have a whopping 63K pins, there are a few (if not more) other notables that scored an even higher number of fans.
Take, for example, the Park Avenue halo engagement ring. It has a total of 88.4K pins, clearly blowing the aforementioned ring out of the water in terms of popularity. Halo rings are super trendy these days to be fair.
Or take the stunning solitaire diamond ring found after the latter — it's a custom designed ring with 2.5 carat moissanite from MCo which has a total of 70.3k pins.
Then there's this $3,595 Paloma engagement ring with intertwined diamond bands and one solitaire diamond in the setting. That pin amassed 77.8k pins for it's unique, vintage-esque design.

So what really is the most-pinned engagement ring on Pinterest? That we don't know for sure, but we do know which way brides are swaying in terms of trends. According to Pinterest, "We're seeing an increase in non-traditional engagement rings this year, as Pinners want to opt for more unique styles that are also budget friendly." Searches for morganite rings rose 62% this past year, whereas Pinterest users searching for pear-shaped diamonds had over 100% of an increase year over year. Another interesting trend the social media site is seeing? Opal engagement rings!
So while we may not be able to pinpoint exactly what the top-pinned engagement ring is, we do know where the trends are heading. So start pinning those pear-shaped diamond rings, ladies!
