I know engagement ring shopping isn’t often portrayed as something one does online, but it turns out your search can be just as fruitful (and fun!) when done digitally as it would be in a jewelry store. That said, if for some reason buying online turns out to be your only option, don’t feel stressed. There are actually so many online engagement ring stores that allow you to shop pre-designed beauties and even design your own custom, bespoke rings. Sure, it’s a little different than being in an actual store, but thanks to virtual appointments and on-site chatting, online engagement ring shopping is actually super easy. Whether you’re looking for the perfect halo cut or something unexpected, bold and unique, you can definitely find it online.

If you’re already feeling a little overwhelmed, we got you. Looking at all the different options—shape, style, cut—for engagement rings can be a lot. If you go into the process knowing popular styles and colors, though, it might make you feel more at ease. According to the jewelers at James Allen, platinum is often the preferred metal over white gold, due to its durability. They also note that blue sapphires are currently on-trend and round diamonds remain one of the most popular jewel shapes of all time. Having knowledge like this can help make the entire process of ring-shopping way less stressful. Getting started and deciding what you like really is the hardest part! Make sure to take advantage of virtual appointments with jewelers and gemologists and ask questions about popular styles and cuts, should you have any that you can’t find answers to online already. The more you know, the better decision you’ll be able to make!

To help you get started, we rounded up some of the best places you can shop for engagement rings online below. Always be sure to use all the resources each site offers, ask questions and take notes. An engagement ring is something you or your significant other will be wearing all the time, so paying attention to the details and asking for exactly what you want is key in ensuring you’re purchasing your new favorite piece of jewelry.
