To help you pick from the bottomless collection of engagement rings, we have rounded up for you some of the hottest trends of this year. These designs are the bestsellers this year and are most likely to have you fall for them at first glance.
Rose Gold Ring with Paved Band
The most popular style in engagement rings this year is the rose gold and diamond ring. The style that most rose gold buyers are going for features a diamond at the center and paved diamonds on the band. The ring of diamond runs till the center of the band, while in some it only extends to the band shoulders. The center diamond in such a band is set mostly on a four-prong setting that gives the gem an unobstructed view. The diamonds on the band scale up the sparkle of the center stone while the pink blush of the gold seeps through the interims making the contrast visible.
Diamond and Blue Sapphire Floating Ring
Originally inspired by the engagement sparkle of the Duchess of Cambridge, this style is setting trends right now. Although the details vary from one store to another, the defining characteristics of this style is the oval cut vivid blue sapphire at the center and a halo of diamond around it which gives the stone a floating feel. The contrast of white and blue enhances the beauty of both the kinds of gems. This style has been refreshed innumerably with likely and unlikely combinations of stones.
Halo with Paved Band
The obsession of fancy shaped gemstones has passed on to halos as rings these days are features with halos of various types. Of all the shapes that has come to prominence in recent times, the cushion halo is the most loved of them all. Framed with a cushion cut stone of over a carat, these rings are fitted with a halo of diamonds that hug the center stone closely taking up its shape. If you take a fancy on unique shaped gemstones, then this one is definitely worth a try. Dainty and unconventional, this one is often paired with an ornate band.
