'Tis the season for holiday proposals! More than 800,000 couples will get engaged during the holiday season, according to Robbins Brothers, a destination engagement ring store. In celebration, they've compiled the "12 Engagement Rings of Christmas," showcasing the year's most popular ring designs:
Inspired by the tiara Kate Middleton wore for her 2011 nuptials, this sparkling ring features intricate side scrolls and 94(!) diamonds around a 1.5 carat center stone (from $2,495).
We love this whimsical, modern take on a halo design: The curved, diamond-encrusted band comes together around a 1.5 carat diamond (from $3,620).
Romantic and elegant, this dazzling ring features a cushion cut diamond surrounded by a halo, with two rows of diamonds on the band ($6,495).
An Art Deco stunner, the marquise diamond is surrounded by 42 diamonds($2,695).
A trio of emerald-cut diamonds are surrounded by halos in this vintage-inspired ring ($5,495).
What could be a better symbol of everlasting love than infinity? 62 diamonds criss-cross around this beautiful ring (from $1,995).
One of the most budget-friendly on the list, this gorgeous ring smartly uses nine small princess-cut diamonds in the center rather than one large one ($1,495).
A fun way to add some color to your engagement ring without committing to a colored center stone, this sweet ring features 10 pink sapphires on the sides (from $1,995).
The combination of white and rose gold makes this ring a true showstopper (from $2,860).
A ring doesn't need to be over-the-top to be beautiful; we love this simple solitaire ring (from $3,690).
Already engaged? Then you may want to add one of these gorgeous right-hand rings to your wish list. They'd also make for truly stunning wedding rings.
Let this be your "something blue!" The intricate design includes 69 round diamonds and 10 blue sapphires ($1,995).
Gold flowers, accented wtih diamonds, are surrounded by white gold and diamond bands ($1,895).
