Top Non-Engagement Diamond Rings You Can Wear If You're Single or Taken

Alicia Briggs | October 30, 2023

Few of us can resist the beauty of a diamond ring, but many people are hesitant to buy one unless it’s an engagement ring. Thankfully, you don’t have to be engaged, or even in a relationship, to wear a beautiful VRAI created diamond ring.

Use this guide to explore the best non-engagement diamond ring styles, and how to choose the right one for you.

What Are Non-Engagement Rings?

Non-engagement diamond rings refer to any diamond ring you wear that isn’t used as an engagement ring.

People often buy a non-engagement ring to celebrate themselves, and as an act of self-love. Other people simply love to wear diamond rings regardless of their relationship status.

Can You Wear a Diamond Ring Without Being Engaged?

Anyone can wear a diamond ring, whether they are single, taken, engaged, or married. If you’re single (and trying to mingle), avoid wearing a diamond ring on your left ring finger. That will signal to others you are engaged.

How to Wear a Non-Engagement Diamond Ring

There are several ways to wear a non-engagement diamond ring, but ultimately, you can wear it however you’d like. Diamond rings will always make a statement on their own. You can wear them on any finger, but keep in mind the left ring finger is typically used for engagement rings.

Some diamond rings, like cuff rings or bands with pavé diamonds, are easy to stack. You can create a beautiful ring stack with your lab-grown diamond ring as the focal point.

Best Non-Engagement Diamond Ring Settings

There are many settings and styles to choose from for non-engagement diamond rings. You can opt for a classic engagement ring setting, like a Bezel, Halo, or Solitaire setting.

You can also choose from a variety of non-traditional statement rings, or everyday diamond rings, like our Multi Row Pavé Ring or Cuff Ring.

Vintage Non-Engagement Diamond Rings

Vintage-inspired settings are very popular for non-engagement diamond rings. Many people choose non-engagement rings to symbolize self-love. A feminine, dazzling vintage-inspired setting is a perfect way to honor yourself.

Opt for a romantic rose gold band and multiple or pavé set diamonds that shine as bright as you do.

Solitaire Non-Engagement Diamond Rings

Solitaire diamond rings are most commonly associated with engagement rings, but you don’t have to be engaged to wear a solitaire diamond ring.

Popular styles of Solitaire non-engagement diamond rings feature a single diamond set within a band, such as The Round Inlay Band. Other solitaire diamond rings resemble classic engagement rings but with slightly smaller center diamonds, thinner bands, or bands that deviate from traditional designs.

You can also choose any solitaire engagement ring and wear it as a non-engagement ring.

Popular Non-Engagement Diamond Rings for Her

Some of our most popular women’s non-engagement diamond rings are statement-making designs that are equal parts contemporary and timeless.

Cluster rings, such as the Perennial Ring, are popular understated yet feminine styles, suitable for any occasion. Diamond rings with multiple bands and pavé detailing are sought after non-engagement diamond ring styles. Alternatively, a dazzling diamond cuff ring is a unique way to bring shine to your look.
