It’s a tale as old as time: boy meets girl; boy falls in love with girl; boy buys a ring and asks girl to marry him; and well, they live happily ever after. Or something like that, right? Love stories come in all shapes and sizes these days, and fortunately for those couples, so do engagement rings! Let’s look at what’s trending in the world of engagement rings for 2017.
Custom: It never Gets Old
While there are literally millions of engagement rings you can choose from all over the world, getting a custom engagement ring means one thing: there’s nothing else like it. Even subtle and small differences can change the look and feel of an engagement ring and make it something spectacular. Consider custom if you are looking to appeal to your unique personalities.
Engagement rings used to come in one colour: gold. Then white gold hit the market, and then platinum was very, very popular for the first half of the 2000s. Now, rose gold engagement rings are making their way to the front of the line for people purchasing engagement rings. You see this popular colour popping up all over the place: everything from mobile phones to watches to home decor. Rose gold lends well to vintage feeling jewelry, and heirloom pieces. Custom engagement rings are commonly done in rose gold as well. They just make the ring look that much more unique than gold or white gold traditionally have done for custom rings.
Halo Ring Settings
Most people’s eyes are bigger than their budget when it comes to picking out an engagement ring. If size matters, consider getting a halo ring setting. This features a smaller diamond in the middle and a ring of smaller diamonds surround the middle diamond. It makes the overall look of the ring appear much larger, but because the Carat weight is less overall, the rings tend to cost less. It’s also stunningly beautiful.
If there’s one thing that will never get old, it’s a classic solitaire engagement ring. Even with millions of rings to choose from, women are continuing to purchase solitaire rings all over the world. Their timeless look lends well to today’s modern and sleek styles. They make one big impact and are unforgettable. It’s why they continue to trend into the next millennium, even as other trends are coming up fast behind them.
The important part of picking out an engagement ring is that you are sure she is going to love it for years to come. Try choosing something that fits her everyday style, her personality, and her charm. Be sure to ask for help from your jeweler if you are not sure where to start. They are more than happy to help you with anything you may need in making this very important decision, and they can advise on the trends in jewelry as well. They know what is flying off the shelf and what is sitting a little longer waiting for that special person to purchase it.
