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

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.

Colored Gemstones

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!

Vintage Inspired

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.
