A recent Glamour article says the 2018 engagement ring motto is that “anything goes.” They explain that what were once unusual stone choices for bridal jewelry, such as trillion, marquise, and pear shapes are now beginning to be trendy. Another new sophisticated look is using natural Fancy Grey diamonds, which are far rarer than yellow or brown diamonds although typically priced in that range.
Other trends include unusual cuts such as a thinly cut diamond known as a portrait-cut, or a rose-cut stone that is flat on the bottom with a dome-shaped top. Several of last year’s trends continue to be strong including geometric silhouettes and mixed-metal rings.
When a couple is drawn to an unusual styled engagement ring, they may worry their taste could change down the road but jewelry consultants say there is no need to worry. If you love the ring now, get it and enjoy it. If later on, you do not feel the same about it, you can easily have the ring reset. If fact it is not uncommon for couples to re-design their engagement ring in celebration of an important anniversary or other reasons.
