Are you thinking about getting engaged this year? It’s easy to become overwhelmed with all the possibilities! From a traditional solitaire, to fancy color diamonds or vintage-inspired designs and mixed metal settings, the choices are endless. We’re going to break down the latest trends in engagement rings to help you find the ring that’s right for you. Read on and discover the top looks for 2017.
Rose gold started as a big trend last year and is continuing as a popular trend for 2017. It evokes both a warmth and contrast when set against a diamond’s brilliance. An engagement ring set in rose gold is perfect for the bride that wants something romantic and traditional, yet stand out from the crowd. We love this ArtCarved classic diamond prong set halo engagement ring with diamond shank in 18K rose gold.
Many brides are opting for a colored gemstone engagement ring with a sapphire, ruby or emerald. This is a great option for the woman who is looking for something unique and to make a bold statement with her ring. We think this JB Star platinum blue sapphire & diamond ring, featuring a 1.52 carat round blue sapphire, accented with 2 oval and pavé set round diamonds is stunning!
Everything old is new again! We’re seeing a big trend towards vintage inspired engagement rings. Exquisite details with an heirloom quality paired with a beautiful diamond has become very popular among young brides. If you love the look of a vintage setting, we suggest this ArtCarved engagement ring featuring a vintage diamond halo with a diamond and milgrain accented shank and filigree gallery with milgrain and diamond accents.
Diamond Split Shank
The split shank setting has been very popular over the last few years. It’s a great look that is both classic and modern. If you are looking for a split shank setting, you’ll love this Precision Set New Aire round halo with diamond split shank engagement ring.
We’re seeing a lot of bridal designers incorporating the intertwined band into their designs. This is a very pretty look and perfect for the bride who is looking for a delicate, feminine setting. We love this ArtCarved engagement ring featuring a round diamond and intertwined diamond shank set in 14K white gold.
While round diamonds remain the most popular diamond cut for engagement rings, the oval cut diamond is becoming very popular in bridal designs. An oval cut diamond has beautiful brilliance similar to a round diamond and is a fiery cut that reflects light brilliantly. It’s a great choice for someone who loves the sparkle of a round brilliant, but desires a less common shape. This three stone oval diamond engagement ring by Bez Ambar is spectacular!
