Whether you’re a non-traditional bride or a bride that likes to stick to tradition, engagement rings are one of the most special pieces of jewelry that a woman owns. There are endless options when choosing an engagement ring. The days are long gone where engagement rings are simple diamonds—today, engagement rings come in a variety of styles, shapes, and even colors. So, what are the hottest engagement ring trends in 2018? Read below to find out!
Oval Shaped Diamonds
Oval shaped diamonds have always been a hit in the industry; however, they have made a recent comeback in the last several years and the trend has really boomed in 2017. Blake Lively is one celebrity who rocks an oval cut diamond ring and has set a standard in the industry. Now, you will see many modern brides rock the oval cut diamond with or without a halo.
You don’t have to say, “I DO” to a classic diamond. Many brides to be are choosing colored gemstones such as ruby, sapphire, and alexandrite. Whether you’re looking to break the standard of traditional engagement rings or looking for cost-effective options, colored gemstones make beautiful engagement rings. This new colored gemstone engagement ring style has become a popular trend in 2018.
Pear Shaped Diamonds
While round diamonds continue to be the number one best-seller, pear-shaped diamonds have been increasing in popularity in the last few years. These beautiful diamonds come in a variety of cuts—ranging from very slim to wide. Often, you will see pear-shaped diamonds surrounded by a halo of diamonds but they can also stand alone.
If you thought you couldn’t have both gold and silver, think again. Mixed metal rings have been an up and coming trend in the ring industry. Whether you have both gold and silver in one engagement ring or you have an engagement ring that is one color and a wedding ring in another, there are no rules as to what type of metal you can get.
Rose gold continues to be one of the most popular metals—especially at our jewelry store in Boston. Rose gold is a unique and beautiful colored metal that really makes a diamond pop and flatters all skin tones.
If you’re looking at either oval or emerald shaped diamonds, many brides are choosing to rotate that diamond side to side instead of the traditional vertical look. This unique look has been around for a few years and is continuing to grow in popularity.
