Calling all glove-wearing doctors, athletes, bakers, hairdressers, researchers, gardeners, and non-stop women out there: these are the best engagement rings for active lifestyles!
If you or your SO’s day-to-day includes a lot of hands-on work, you might want to opt for a more durable engagement ring style. That doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice on sparkle! Engagement rings for active lifestyles can be just as modern, blingy, or unique as any – it’s all a matter of finding the perfect ring.
Engagement Rings for Active Lifestyles
Bezel-Set Engagement Rings
The less the sides of the diamond are exposed, the better; and bezel settings are a super-sleek way to get that done. The bezel setting is one of those low profile engagement rings that will keep your center stone safest, encasing the diamond so that its facets shine securely.
Bezel-Set Solitaire Engagement Ring
Solitaire Engagement Rings
One way to prevent diamonds from falling off your engagement ring band? Go for a clean solitaire! Solitaire engagement ring settings are timeless and can minimize stress.

Wide-Band Engagement Ring Bands
The wider the band, the more securely it holds the center diamond. This is one of the low profile engagement rings that will never get in your way. Plus, we love how this specific ring adds a touch of bezel sparkle on the sides!
One note to keep in mind: wider bands tend to be better for those with larger hands, while they may overwhelm those with hands that are more petite.
Diamond Accent Engagement Ring
Platinum Metal Engagement Rings
Platinum is the most durable engagement ring metal, which makes it a perfect choice for engagement rings for active lifestyles.
In addition to keeping your diamonds in place, platinum’s high shine brings out diamond brilliance. Platinum engagement rings are also a low-maintenance, hypoallergenic choice for those with metal sensitivities.

Channel-Set Engagement Rings
Similar to pavé engagement rings, the bands of channel-set engagement rings are lined with diamonds.
However, these diamonds are secured by a thin strip of metal rather than prongs, so they won’t catch on fabric! Add a low basket, and you’ve got low profile engagement rings that will accompany you on all your adventures.

Center Diamonds with Rounded Corners
If you’re concerned about diamonds chipping or ripping fabric, you might want to aim for symmetrical shapes with rounded corners like cushion cut diamonds or round brilliant cut diamonds.
Graduated Channel-Set Engagement Ring
Both diamond cuts have their benefits: cushion-cut diamonds give a classic glow, while round-cut diamonds offer unparalleled sparkle.
