Top three engagement ring trends
Many women love the look of diamond encrusted rings. The most lavish way to achieve this style is with a large diamond set in what is called a pave setting. These settings reflect the ultimate glamor because they give the illusion that the entire ring is made of nothing but diamonds. When these settings are made with a white gold, the metal disappears into the background and allows the stones to appear to be floating around the finger. For budget conscious buyers, a band with several diamonds inlaid on both sides of the center stone will still give the ring a diamond studded look.
The number of diamonds on current engagement rings is not the only thing changing this season. Many designers have decided to give up traditional diamond cuts and replace them with more unique ones. These new shapes offer many different ways to create a truly unique ring. Many of the shapes indicate a return of old style or antique rings. The unusual shapes all harken back to a time in the past. In addition to new stone shapes, some designers are going a step further and using multiple diamonds to create flowers and other natural patterns in their designs.
Finally, white diamonds are too traditional for many designers this season. Colored diamonds and other colored gemstones are being used to add a splash of color to many of this season’s most unique engagement rings. Yellow and pink diamonds or sapphires are among the most popular colored stones being used.
