From A-listers to influencers, the ‘gram is awash with everything weird, wonderful, and utterly unique when it comes to creative engagement ring reveal ideas. But, with all this inspiration at our fingertips, it can be hard to know where to start. Whether you seek classic romance, quirky fun, or a more nuanced approach, the guiding principle when deciding on your engagement announcement vibe is to stay true to you and your partners’ style—just make sure you capture the ring in all its glittering glory too.

All of the Lights

No matter where you decide to snap your creative engagement announcement photo, the right lighting will show off the ring in the best possible way. If indoors, opt for natural light to avoid a yellow effect from lightbulbs, and if it seems a little dark, adjust exposure levels with a photo editing app. For outside shots, be careful of sneaky shadows and avoid shooting against the sun.

All Tacori engagement rings are light-loving, but for all-out IG impact, we particularly adore how 3-stone varietals like the Simply Tacori look in this type of ring reveal.

Up and Over

A favorite with influencers—and one of the most easily executed shots—is the simple single hand, shot from above, against a chic backdrop. Think of beautiful locations such as the beach or poolside, or something a little more interior glam—extra points if it’s a place with special meaning for you both too. A fresh mani to complement the vibe of the shot is a must, and for the more style bold, opt-in on nail art to really make a statement.

A shot that suits most ring styles, we particularly love the way the Inflori or RoyalT engagement rings dance under the lights.

Join Hands

The true romantic shot among engagement ring reveals—and one really communicating your love and commitment to each other—hold your partner’s hand in yours, with the ring taking center-stage. Try snapping your announcement photo in portrait mode on your smartphone to keep the focus on your hands, and to soften the backdrop.

For this, stronger and fully bloomed statement rings, such as the Dantela or RoyalT, really shine out.

Subtle Shine

The subtle shine is a popular pose for celebs who love to keep their fans guessing. For a more elegant and refined shot to quietly wow your followers, you can’t go wrong with a strategically positioned hand on your partner’s arm. Keep your outfit styling more monochromatic or color-blocked, as too much pattern distracts the eye. Then make sure it looks and feels natural, and that the ring is clearly visible and not under shadow.

This popular ring reveal idea works well with the classic chic of princess or solitaire rings such as the Simply Tacori: Truly Tacori "T" Varietal style or RoyalT.

The Big Tease

Whether resting your hand on your chin, holding a cocktail up to your lips, or just posing casually with the ring in view but not necessarily the focus, this playful approach to your engagement announcement will show you who’s paying attention. The only rule for this style is balance—ensure the positioning of the ring isn’t too subtle or too obvious.

Suitable for any ring type, this creative announcement photo particularly pops with daring or unusual engagement rings offering a more statement style, such as our pear-shaped-Coastal Crescent or Simply Tacori east-west flipped ring.

Kissing Selfie

For an organic ring reveal snap that feels more candid than posed, try going for a simple kiss selfie with a strategically placed left hand in view. It may take a few goes to get the angle right but it’s a beautiful shot that’s well worth the effort, capturing the moment forever.

Any type of fully bloomed ring will photograph exquisitely for this announcement as it maxes out on the shimmering bouquet of disco-ball diamonds.
