Not every bride is after a diamond engagement ring – and, while there are plenty of beautiful gemstones to choose from if you are going to divert from the classic choice, you can't get much more beautiful, or special, than a pearl.

Officially the oldest known gemstone and the only one created by a living creature, the pearl has long been a symbol of wealth, sophistication and power, with none of the overtly glitzy associations given to other precious gems, making them an elegant stone. The pearl also feels like a perfect choice for an engagement ring because they traditionally symbolise wisdom, integrity and loyalty.

Although pearls are often considered to be traditional and classic, and once perhaps even old fashioned, they have been gaining popularity in recent years, particularly when it comes to engagement rings. Ariana Grande and Emma Stone are among the Hollywood starlets to have chosen to have a pearl engagement ring, while many jewellery brands are incorporating pearls into their most popular designs.

Below, we round up some of the most beautiful pearl engagement rings that are available to buy online now. For more engagement ring and wedding inspiration, head this way.

This rose gold ring features a 13mm Mabe pearl, which is surrounded by a half halo set of diamonds. A truly unique design that will catch anyone's eye.

Tiffany & Co

We love this design from Tiffany & Co, which features a South Sea cultured button-shaped pearl, which is set in platinum and surrounded by round brilliant diamonds.

Yoko London

When two pearls are better than one. This beautiful style from Yoko London would be a lovely choice for an engagement ring with the two stones set in beautiful diamonds on a white-gold band.


If you are looking for something on the slightly more affordable end of the scale, you can't go wrong with this Mizuki design. We love the heart-shaped diamond detail paired with the freshwater pearl.


Another unique choice comes from Chanel's fine jewellery collection. This ring incorporates a feather made of diamonds, which is set on a white-gold band and features a cultured pearl.

Anissa Kermiche

Anissa Kermiche is a great name to know for interesting jewellery – and we love her take on the pearl ring. The stone sits above the band and is set in a halo of diamonds.

David Morris

If you fancy something without one central stone, this design from David Morris might be right for you. The rose-gold band is set with several mother-of-pearl stones and diamonds.


This ring from Mikimoto feels a little more traditional – and would make a great choice for anyone who likes to keep things sleek and simple.


This style from Autore features a 'Hercules knot' with diamond stones, and a 10mm South Sea pearl.
