Ballerina engagement rings are a style that was very fashionable in the 1950s, coming back into style in current times. This style of ring takes its name from the series of small stones that surround the centre stone, giving the illusion of a ballet tutu. Traditionally, baguette-cut stones are used for the ‘tutu’. Modern rings include other cut diamonds or precious stones or a combination of cuts for added interest. Some ballerina rings feature additional elements, such as swirls, further adding to the sense of movement and grace of this ring style.

Elegant and Graceful Ballerina Engagement Rings
These engagement rings capture the beauty of the ballerina style ring perfectly.
Yellow Gold Swirls
This ring uses swirls studded with baguettes that are set close together. Set in yellow gold, with classic white diamonds, the ring brings to mind a twirling tutu, with plenty of sparkle. It has a round cut diamond in the centre and a touch of vintage in its overall design.
Vintage Double Layer
If vintage is what you are looking for, this ring has even more of a vintage style. A round centre diamond is flanked first by a halo of tiny pave diamonds and then by a ring of baguette diamonds. The result is a square or oblong shape of diamonds, with loads of sparkle.
Sapphire and Diamond
Precious stones add even more elegance to the ballerina ring. In this design, a round sapphire is surrounded by baguettes in an inverted square shape. Between each trio of baguette diamonds, there are two small round cut stones that add balance to the overall design.
Rose Gold Pear
Rose gold is an ideal metal for this type of ring, bringing a soft, feminine appeal. In this modern yet timeless design, a pear-cut stone takes centre stage, with a combination of marquise and round cut stones forming the tutu. This style works perfectly with diamonds and rose gold but it would also work beautifully in yellow gold or platinum with a coloured diamond or precious stones.
Black Diamond Oval
Black diamonds provide lots of drama and impact to this type of ring. In this ring, a black diamond oval lies in the centre, flanked by a halo with an outer layer of round diamonds and strategically placed baguettes that continue the oval design. Try this ring with rose gold for something bolder.
Side Stone Clusters
Ballerina rings don’t have to have a complete tutu. This ring design features a centre of tiny round cut diamonds, flanked by baguettes on each side to form a wing-like design that fans out to either side. Try mixing up stones in the centre or surrounding layer or keep it simple with classic white diamonds.
Yellow Gold Cluster
Cluster rings remain a popular choice for many brides-to-be. In this ring, a round diamond is surrounded by baguette diamonds that are spaced a little further apart, with clusters of small round diamonds situated at the top, bottom, and sides. The result is a dainty, pretty ring that sparkles beautifully.
Double Layer Morganite
Morganite and rose gold are a favourite choice for modern rings. This combination works well with diamonds, giving a soft, subtle effect that is understated without being boring. In this ring, an oval centre stone is surrounded by an inner halo of pave diamonds, with baguette stones of varying sizes and additional round cut diamonds to continue the oval shape.
