8. And finally, engagements aren’t always about grand gestures and big surprises, sometimes simply genuine is the route to choose. Instagram user jen_jenmarie_busterthehusky‘s fiancé turned a camping trip and hike into the most memorable moment! Try to tell us the top of a mountain isn’t romantic, we dare you!

Summer Style: Tacori Engagement Rings

Summer is fast approaching and this weather just begs for romantic proposals. Sun warming your skin and cool breezy summer nights offer up the perfect setting to pop the big question. We’ve collected some of our favorite Tacori styles to help make the decision process a whole lot easier.

Simply Tacori Platinum Pave & Milgrain Setting

The Platinum Pave & Milgrain Setting from the Simply Tacori Collection makes simplicity desirable with perfected style to make your diamond stand out and demand attention. Pavé diamonds accent halfway around the band and the Tacori crescent adorns the sides of the band. Keeping it simple is sometimes the best plan of action.

Tacori Platinum & Diamond Twist Setting

The Platinum & Diamond Twist Setting from the Contemporary Crescent Collection is a direct departure from the argument for simplicity, but for good reason. This elegant and structured setting displays your diamond seemingly hovering over its pavé accented basket. The weaving ribbon style featured on its band makes this setting a truly stand-out piece.

18K Rose Gold Diamond Pavé Halo Dantela Setting

Rose gold is growing more and more popular by the day. If you’re thinking about going with rose gold, the 18K Rose Gold Pavé Halo Dantela Setting is the answer. Delicate pavé diamonds create a halo around a bold center diamond, the perfect balance of styles. If your to-be-betrothed is a fan of color, rose gold might be the perfect hue.

Platinum 3-Row Round Diamond Halo Setting

Of course, if you’re dreaming of the ultimate sparkle, there’s the Platinum 3-Row Round Diamond Halo Setting from the Petite Crescent Collection. Three rows of pavé adorn the band while a halo highlights the stunning center diamond of your choice. If you’re looking to go big, this setting is your ticket there.
