If you're the kind of woman who dreams of a non-white wedding gown, puppies as bouquets, or dessert stations in lieu of a wedding cake, then your ring needs to be equally unique. That said, an engagement ring with a horizontally-placed stone might be right up your alley.
This unconventional design is a celeb fave, seen on the fingers of Portia de Rossi, Catherine Zeta Jones, Kate Beckinsale and the like. Not to mention, it's been the choice of two former Bachelors, à la Jason Mesnick's proposal to Melissa Rycroft and Chris Soules' proposal to Whitney Bischoff.
Needless to say, it's no surprise the style is growing in popularity. The uniqueness of this design is subtle enough for a timeless, classic look but different enough to create something special. Not to mention that the stone options are endless, whether you want an emerald or marquise cut, a diamond or colored gemstone.
In our directional tizzy, we've rounded up a few favorites. Engaged brides-to-be, take note.
