Think engagement rings, think diamonds.
Diamonds, for centuries, have remained the most popular jewelry option that has maintained its numero uno position as the favorite gemstone of women across the world. And without doubt, it is one of the most common choices for engagement rings.
But if you are thinking that these precious betrothal baubles limit themselves within the monochrome of single and simple transparent diamond rings, think again! The trends of popular engagement ring styles have changed drastically. The latest twist in the traditional tale features intricate settings, cool cuts, dazzlingly diverse styles and tints that forego the predictable translucent solitaire altogether.
Beyond Round Brilliant Cut
The Emerald Cut diamond ring is classically elegant and elongated. An emerald-cut stone will lend your engagement ring an understated vintage air, while the sleek lines beautifully exude fire. This stone has a bigger appearance than other diamond cuts of similar carat weight.
Cushion Cut is another stone with a distinctly antique artistic appeal while the almost organic silhouette radiates sheer brilliance owing to its large facets.
The Oval Cut diamond rings are more visually fascinating than a common round stone. The oval cut tweaks the convention just enough to be contemporary, but looks flawlessly stunning set just like a solitaire, especially when incorporated in a trendy setting of east-west engagement ring.
Tapered and sensuously shaped, a pear cut stone is garnering renewed popularity not only for that hint of vintage and absolutely feminine design, but the shape of a pear cut also lends sizably bigger appearance to smaller carat weights.
Two-tiered halo setting with some including contrasting colors in the surrounding metal or stones, creates the impression of a way larger solitaire.
The bezel-set diamond engagement ring is clean-lined and quite modern. It looks absolutely trendy and at the same time holds that precious diamond solitaire safely in place.
If you want to make your diamond engagement ring the talk of the town, choose something brilliantly colorful. Canary yellow diamond is a gorgeous option as it glows with the tints of warm yellow – the intensity of tint can depend on your personal preferences. Considered a ‘fancy’ shade, at present canary is as desirable a color as pink was even a few years back. So, if you want to get hitched this year, there is exciting options aplenty to choose your matchless diamond engagement ring.
