4 Engagement Rings With Horizontal Stones! (I Loooove This Trend!) Which Would You Wear?

Ever since I did that post about engagement rings featured on The Bachelor, I’ve been obsessed with the ring Jason gave Melissa (and she later gave back) which had a horizontally set marquis diamond.

Soooo pretty, right?

Obviously this ring, which also features by 170 smaller diamonds, is pretty over the top. But I think the sideways center stone makes it a little less “in your face,” if that makes sense. Plus, it’s a whole lot less likely to snag on your clothes. (Or, um, scratch your baby’s face. Guilty as charged.)

I searched around for more engagement rings with sideways stones, and while they’re not super-popular, I think the trend is definitely catching on.
