January 7th, 2018

Are you thinking about getting engaged this year?  With all the styles out there to choose from, looking for the perfect ring can be overwhelming.  To make your search easier, we’re breaking down the top trends to look for in 2018.  From oval cut diamonds to rings set in rose gold, read on for the top trends in engagement rings to look for this year.

Oval Diamond

An oval-shaped diamond ring has become very popular in recent years.  The oval cut diamond has beautiful brilliance similar to a round diamond. The modern oval cut 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. We love this oval diamond engagement ring by Precision Set and we think you will too!

Rose Gold

Rose gold has been a big trend in bridal for the last few years.  It continues to be a popular choice for many women who love the warm hue of rose gold.  We love this 3-row halo ring in rose gold by ArtCarved.

Colored Gemstones

Color is a big look in bridal.  Whether you favor sapphires, rubies or emeralds, precious colored gemstones make for a beautiful and unique engagement ring.  If you are looking to stand out from the crowd, opt for a colored gemstone ring like this sapphire and diamond ring by JB Star.

Pear-Shaped Diamonds

We’re seeing a big resurgence in pear-shaped diamonds.  This shape was very popular 30 years ago, and many brides have started to rediscover this elegant diamond.  When looking at different shape diamonds, many women have fallen in love with the pear-shaped diamond for its extraordinary sparkle and fire!
