*This* Is the Most Popular Engagement Ring Style RN
Just like everything else, engagement ring trends wax and wane in popularity, and it seems like indie, boho and non-traditional rings get all the attention. But according to Sparkly, the most popular ring on their Pinterest-like engagement ring website is much more classic than one would expect — the round cut solitaire. In fact, the most viewed ring on the site this year is a 10-carat round solitaire stunner that would put many celeb rings to shame.
For most of us, a ring this extravagant is far out of our reach, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still achieve the same timeless vibe with your finger bling. So, whether you and your S.O. are in the market for a ring, or you’re *just browsing*, here are five classic and alternative round cut diamond rings that would make any bride happy.
1. Vrai & Oro The Solitaire ($1,649 and up):Vrai & Oro is changing the game when it comes to engagement ring shopping, but their options remain simple, elegant, and classic. You can’t go wrong with a tried-and-true style like this one.
2. Lizzie Mandler Petit Knife Edge Solitaire ($1,420): This dainty stunner might be small, but that doesn’t make it any less beautiful. It would be perfect for the minimal bride who wants just a little bling.
3. Jade Trau Astor Ring No2 ($4,600 and up): This non-traditional style proves that a round cut doesn’t have to be boring. The ring looks edgy when worn alone but also allows for a wedding band to fit perfectly under it, creating a seamless look.
4. Everett 0.79 Carat Champagne Diamond Solitaire Ring ($3,500): Colored diamonds are often overlooked, which is a shame because they can be just as gorgeous and offer a unique twist on the standard white diamond.
5. Point No Point Studio 1.32 Carat Salt & Pepper Diamond ($2,337): Salt-and-pepper diamonds, which have visible white and black inclusions, go against everything we think we should believe when it comes to diamonds, but that’s what makes them so special. Instead of looking for the highest clarity in a stone, why not embrace the flaws that showcase the natural beauty of your diamond?

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
