Whether you’re into gothic black diamonds, platinum princess cut, or even eco wood, there’s an engagement ring out there for just about everyone. But this year, one ring is far more popular than the rest – and it’s going back to basics.

Well, when we say basics, the custom-made ring winning hearts on the internet still costs thousands, but style-wise, it’s a classic design.

The most popular ring on the wedding planner’s playground that is Pinterest is a rose gold solitaire that has been saved more than 103,000 times:

It’s not available in any jewellers as it was custom-made for its owner Sylvia Billone.

“The solitaire ring is 1.22 karats with a two-millimeter-width rose gold band,” Billone told The Sun, while declining to reveal its price.

The clean-cut style is a world away from the ornate Raymond Lee sparkler that came in as Pinterest’s most popular engagement ring in 2016:

The Verragio Venetian ring is an 18-karat white gold princess cut piece by US jewellers Raymond Lee and would set proposers back $4,300 (£3,360).
