Traditionally, engagement rings have meant a large solitaire diamond set within a gold band. Many couples are happy to stick with this classic tradition. However, today’s engagement ring designs have evolved beyond the traditional solitaire to include halo, three-stone, pave, and other beautiful ring styles. Here are some of the most popular trends in engagement rings today.
It's all in the Setting
Many glamorous rings feature a large diamond set high within the setting to show off every facet of the stone. Halo diamond rings, with a large center stone surrounded by smaller stones, are another elegant choice for a show-stopping engagement ring. For active brides, especially those who work with their hands, lower set stones, or stones set into a bezel to protect the gem, provide a practical yet lovely choice for engagement rings.
Many couples are opting for cubic zirconium, white sapphires, or moissanite gems as beautiful alternatives to diamonds, often due to budgetary constraints or for ethical reasons. Colored gemstones, such as rubies or emeralds, may also substitute for diamonds.
Look to Nature
Many current brides are looking for organic band designs and settings that are reflective of nature, such as leaves, vines, braids, or infinity twist designs. Other couples opt for nontraditional metals such as white gold, silver, platinum, or a combination of gold and silver.
Your nature-inspired engagement band can be out of this world, like this crescent-moon piece!
Vintage styles have surged in popularity in recent years. Rings employing filigree milgrain, Edwardian, and Art Deco styles with cluster arrangements, intricate scroll work, or delicate, dainty bands are stylish and elegant.
