A Christmas ring can serve double duty as both a Christmas gift and a ring for your special Christmas engagement, surrounded by friends and family. Here are a few of our favorite ideas for the best engagement ring for Christmas.
Halo Engagement Rings
Christmas is a time of angels and joy, and a "halo" style engagement ring can evoke this beautiful image. Halo engagement rings incorporate stones within the band itself, giving it extra sparkle and shine. You can find the best engagement rings for Christmas in a wide variety of halo designs, with the main stone in a cut such as a traditional round or oval solitaire, an emerald cut or a classic square princess cut. The halo of gemstones around the main stone makes it a perfect Christmas ring choice.
Pear Engagement Rings
A pear-cut engagement ring is also great for the best engagement proposal ring at Christmas.

The heart shape instantly shows your love and is a very romantic choice.

What is the Perfect Christmas Engagement Ring Box?
If you propose at Christmas, you should also consider the engagement ring box, because you can get creative with the way you present the ring. For example, you could choose a ring box that you can hang on the Christmas tree like an ornament for a really creative and surprising way to present your ring to the love of your life.
Another idea for a Christmas engagement ring box isn't really a box at all: find a tiny Christmas stocking and put the ring inside, perhaps hooked around a candy cane. For a fun idea, you could get a series of Christmas engagement ring boxes of varying sizes and stack them inside each other for a treasure hunt experience where your partner finds the ring inside the last and smallest box. You could put other small presents or matching jewelry in the other boxes if you really want to make your Christmas engagement experience grand.
