2018 Engagement Ring Trends

Posted on January 09 by Allison Dupree

Are you starting the search for the perfect engagement ring? There are so many things to consider when selecting a ring that will be on your, or your fiancée’s, finger until death do you part. Make sure you do your research for stones, metal and even the jeweler where you get the ring. Oval diamonds are here to stay. We love this idea of a classic solitaire with an oval stone versus round. This shape is slightly more modern and can even make your fingers look thinner! Whether it’s with a halo of smaller stones, two on the side or just on its own, your oval ring is sure to impress everyone you show!

Colored stones are always a great way to express your personality through your engagement ring. The possibilities are endless with these stones as well! They can be solitaire, surrounded by smaller diamonds or have one center stone flanked by others on each side. Rubies, emeralds, sapphires, you name it and it can be your engagement ring! Or if you still want a diamond, you can find a wide array of colored diamonds to fit your style.

Although it has been around for a little while now, rose gold isn’t going anywhere! The light pink metal has been gaining popularity in recent years for engagement rings and even wedding bands. The color flatters almost all skin tones and lends itself beautifully to a beautiful diamond.

With the recent royal engagement, we know that Meghan Markle’s gorgeous ring will definitely be a popular trend, just like Princess Kate’s was 2010. We love the look of Meghan’s ring but the personal elements of the center diamond from Botswana and the side ones from Princess Diana’s collection is what make it so unique.

Stacking rings are a great way to add upcoming and past milestones of your relationship to your everyday jewelry. Adding rings for your first home, first pet or even first child can be a great way to represent all aspects of your love

Similar to the oval shape, the pear shaped diamonds are an elegant alternative when considering a solitaire ring. Like the oval as well, pear shaped diamonds can help your finger look slimmer and longer!
