Make this holiday season extra special by getting down on one knee and presenting your partner with a glittering symbol of your love. Their engagement ring is one they’ll keep for the rest of your lives together, and it’s important to strike the right balance between trendy and timeless. We’re here to help you choose a ring style they’ll love now and forever.
The Modern Solitaire
This classic setting is so well-loved because of its ability to emphasize the gemstone in a no-frills backdrop that draws the eye to the intricacies of the diamond itself. The solitaire setting has persisted through jewelry history. Although past years have seen thick bands, recent iterations of this style feature much thinner, daintier bands.
The thin band makes a modern solitaire ring ideal for stacking wedding and anniversary bands, another trend in jewelry that has gained a lot of traction in recent years.
Mixed Metal Rings
Two and three-tone rings are one of our favorite engagement ring trends this holiday season. Though previously considered a fashion faux pas, mixing metals in jewelry is now praised as daring and unique.
White gold and sterling silver persist as the most common metals for engagement ring settings, but a pop of rose or yellow gold adds dynamism and visual interest that is sure to please your fiancé-to-be. A mixed metal ring will bring new meaning to “Silver and Gold” this holiday season.
Dreamy Rose Gold
This romantic metal will bring a bit of warmth to any holiday proposal. Rose gold has a long, rich history in jewelry, but has made a modern reappearance in a big way to every area of fashion. If your partner is the trendy, feminine type, a rose gold engagement ring with plenty of detail is a fitting contemporary choice.
Elongated Center Stones
Emerald, marquise, pear, and oval cut rings are becoming increasingly popular this season, and for good reason! The elongated structure of this cut creates the illusion of a larger diamond, especially when paired with a thin band. It makes the wearer’s finger appear longer and more slender as well.
An elongated center stone, whether paired with other side stones or in a solitaire setting, produces a dramatic effect that will dazzle your partner.
A Fresh Take On Halos
Halo style rings have been trending for the past few years and do not appear to be going anywhere any time soon. This setting creates extra sparkle that gives the effect of a larger diamond. This holiday season, we’re seeing new takes on this style, like hidden, double, and side-stone halos. The hidden halo is our particular favorite that adds detail and shine to the profile view of the ring.
