Few things inspire hope and positivity as love does. Love influences our behavior and moves us to be better people for others and ourselves. No wonder an engagement with its details creates such a fuss—especially with the ring. The connection between two people is singularly unique and deserves a ring equally expressive. Here are three inspirational engagement ring trends worthy of a second look:
Diamonds have a tremendous following, but the earth is rich with exquisite stones. Colorful gemstones as an alternative to diamonds continue to gain popularity as more brides value self-expression and ethical sourcing. Most gemstones come in a countless range of colors and cost far less than a diamond of the same size and grade. Some women are choosing stones for their subtle energetic properties. For instance, a peach blush morganite stone is thought to attune to the heart chakra, encourage lightness within the spirit and symbolize deepening love.
Stacks on Stacks
Mix it up with stacking bands—the ultimate way to showcase your own intimate love story. Completely customizable, each band fits together to give the illusion of a larger ring. Add a band for your engagement, marriage, milestone anniversary or the birth of a child. Choose a style where interlocking bands are part of a base design or take an edgier route, mixing platinum and rose gold with pavé diamonds and birthstones to create the ultimate statement in personal style.
Mixed Metal Details
Sometimes the smallest details make all the difference! Customizing a white round diamond set in a white gold setting with a rose gold halo creates a contemporary update to a classic look while giving the illusion of a larger center stone. Similarly, a brilliant citrine or yellow diamond set in platinum with elegant yellow gold prongs is a sublime presentation all its own.
