Classic engagement ring styles like the solitaire & three stone ring are timeless traditionals that never go out of style. But each year, we see new emerging trends & modifications to these timeless classics along with new styles & techniques - making the possibilities for a truly unique ring endless!
In the last year or so, we have noticed a continued resurgence of rose, yellow, and mixed gold designs alongside a growing demand for fancy shape diamond rings. Fancy shapes refer to any shape other than the traditional round diamond center stone. Oval & pear shapes have become more sought after, and its easy to see why - these elegant elongated shapes are an exceptional value when compared to round diamonds & they flatter any hand by making the fingers look long & slender! Read on to find out about all the newest trends in engagement rings!
1. Oval & Pear Shapes
Fancy shapes have been growing in popularity over the last year or so. Specifically, ovals & pears are becoming a more common engagement ring choice than ever before! We have seen several well known celebrities choose these shapes - Blake Lively, Serena Williams, & Victoria Beckham, just to name a few. One of the biggest & more practical reasons for this resurgence in fancy shapes is your investment goes further (more bang for your buck) with these shapes when compared to the classic round brilliant. Bigger diamond within the same budget...YES, PLEASE! Oh and did we mention these shapes flatter ANY hand by making the fingers look long & slender? That's a win-win in our book!
2. Rose Gold, Yellow Gold, & Mixed Metals
In 2018, we experienced a significant increase in the demand for rose gold, yellow gold, & mixed gold (rose & white or yellow & white) engagement rings & wedding bands. We anticipate this trend continuing well into 2019 with the continued resurgence of these vibrant precious metals alongside a decrease in overall demand for platinum & white gold engagement ring & wedding bands.
3. Diamond Collar - Variation of Halo Style
Surrounding the center diamond with smaller accent diamonds - a halo style engagement ring - has been extremely popular for several years. This year, we saw a new style emerge within the halo - this style features a dainty diamond collar set around & underneath the center stone rather than on top. We love this variation of the halo style engagement ring because it allows for the center stone to truly be the star of the show. The best part is the price - this engagement ring setting is extremely affordable! In 18 karat white, yellow, or rose gold prices start under $1,000 for the mounting, leaving more money towards your center diamond!
