Ready to say "yes!" to a lifelong partnership but not quite looking forward to sporting a big diamond or gaudy design on your ring finger? Minimalist brides, it’s time to obsess over the simple things in life, like these dainty engagement rings.

If your style is more understated and showing off some major bling while you’re engaged is just not your thing, you’re in luck: Simple engagement rings are having a big moment. Just ask yourself, what would a French girl do? The good news is that rocking a minimalist engagement ring doesn’t have to mean sacrificing on style—in fact, some of the coolest rings we’ve seen lately are all about simplicity. Enter one of our favorite jeweler's latest creations.

We’ve long obsessed over Vrai's dainty baubles (thin lines of black diamonds as wedding bands are ultimate #weddingringgoals), so when the jeweler launched a dedicated bridal line, we were beyond thrilled. The collection's mission statement is everything a minimalist wants for her bridal jewelry: “Good design goes unnoticed; the beauty lies in the details.” A statement in simplicity? Sign us up. With architectural shapes, clean lines, and a simplistic approach to bridal jewelry this is a minimalist’s dream. And did we mention these are all California-grown sustainable diamonds that you can try on at home before you buy? It’s like the Warby Parker of engagement rings.

Vrai is not the only one getting in on the simple engagement rings. From an understated round diamond on a barely there gold band to a teardrop stacked with a thin wave of pavé stones: We’ve got all the engagement ring styles a minimalist bride needs to see.
