If you search the web for articles on trends in engagement rings you will come up with plenty of articles with people telling you which rings they believe are going to be the most popular in 2017. After looking through them myself, I discovered that most of them just list a bunch of different styles – essentially the ones you already see on every jewelry store website, including ours.
We talk to people every day who tell us they saw a picture of a specific ring on Pinterest that is their dream ring. We will do everything we can to find you, or make you, the ring you’ve always wanted.
Here are a few examples of what we see as trending in 2017:
The halo ring is a setting that encircles a center stone in a collection of round pavé or micro-pavé diamonds (or colored gemstones). … A larger center diamond looks huge in a halo setting. And a quarter, third or half carat diamond can look, by some estimates, as much as a half a carat larger. These three styles include some of the most popular design points in halo rings – the split shank band and the twisted band.
The Pear-Shaped or Marquise
A round cut diamond may be the most popular center stone (followed by princess cut), but pear shaped and marquise cut diamonds are making a comeback. A bonus about these longer and narrow cuts is they instantly slim and elongate your fingers.
Rose Gold continues to be the new metal of choice for women who want something different. It’s a very pretty choice and the pink color really makes the diamonds pop! You can also add rose gold as an accent.
Non-Matching Wedding Bands
Most antique rings were never made with a matching wedding band in mind, and in 2017 we’re thinking the trend of “non-matching” rings and bands will make a come back. Many engagement rings are simply not meant to “match” perfectly with a band – and that’s perfectly OK! Getting an unique band or multiple bands to wear or stack with your ring is all a part of showing your personal style. There are no rules, it’s just whatever you like!
