An article recently published in Brides magazine discussed 10 new trends for engagement ring styles in 2017. One of the magazine’s predictions is that halo rings will continue to be popular but with some unique variations that include vintage-inspired, retro designs to diamond-encrusted geometric shapes or blinged out twisted designs.
Another trend continuing into the New Year are engagement rings set with colored stones. Whether you chose a colored gem for the middle stone in a diamond-encrusted halo or the other popular variation of a diamond as the center stone surrounded by colored gems, it offers a fresh look to a classic style. Brides also displayed a stunning and very distinctive looking two-stone bypass ring set with one colored stone and one diamond. In addition the magazine reports that a vintage-inspired Edwardian-style ring set with European-cut diamonds are another way to follow the trend with your own unique spin.
Stacked rings are another strong trend and many brides are opting for a set of white, rose and yellow gold rings. In addition designers are offering a number of intertwined bands that symbolize the coming together of two lives as one.
Stones such as opals and rubies are also looking right at home in some of the most exquisite new engagement rings. It makes sense as “opals are associated with love and loyalty — requisite qualities of a long, successful marriage.” The beautiful color of rubies aptly signifies romance along with its reputation as the “gem of the heart,” and the symbol of passionate love.
