Exciting Trends in Wedding and Engagement Rings

Exciting Trends in Wedding and Engagement Rings

This is a sponsored post provided by our sponsor, Shane & Co. to benefit our readers who are getting married in the near future.

Just like clothing, cars, houses, and art, the jewelry we buy experiences design trends. Because fine jewelry is purchased less frequently than clothing, the style trends might appear to move at a slower pace but that is no reason to be uninformed about what is stylish and up-to-date and what is on its way out. Keeping an eye on jewelry trends helps you make sense of the options available to you. This information will make you a more informed consumer and give you a better chance at making a purchasing decision that will give you long term buying satisfaction.

Round diamonds accented by cushion-shaped halo settings

A halo setting is one that snuggly surrounds the center stone on all sides; it is covered with one or more rings of smaller complementary stones that create a “halo” arrangement around the center gem. This arrangement showcases the center stone while making a smaller gem appear larger and more impressive by surrounding it by other similar gems.

A cushion-shaped halo setting is one that is slightly squared off in a manner similar to a throw pillow or other plump cushion. The cushion shape can vary from one that is nearly round to one that is almost square. This is a style enjoying a lot of popularity right now, because this is a good way to set smaller stones. Smaller stones mean that you are likely to find women’s wedding rings in the cushion-shaped halo style at very competitive prices.


Colored diamonds

While a pure silvery-white diamond will never go out of style, fancy colored diamonds occasionally enjoy peaks in popularity. Many jewelry aficionados will recall the enthusiasm that greeted pink and chocolate diamond types some years ago.

A colored diamond is an intriguing alternative to the traditional white stone and allows for creative jewelry design of all kinds. Wedding and engagement rings can be selected to match the couple’s favorite colors. Diamonds are naturally found in shades of:

  • Yellow
  • Brown
  • Pink
  • Blue
  • Purple
  • Orange
  • Green
  • Black
  • Red
  • Champagne

Though the current popularity of these colored gems might raise their price a little, the enduring popularity of white diamonds means that customers can still get a good deal on the women’s wedding rings they really want.  


Floral details

Instead of creating a new arrangement for gemstones, some jewelry designers have opted to re-imagine the band itself. Though profile and silhouette details may change, the band portion of a wedding ring has seen little distinctive change over the years. Cunning floral details, including three-dimensional raised elements, have started to make an appearance on some contemporary wedding rings. These details may be accented with minute gemstones. These rings are a refreshing and eye-catching take on more traditional band styles.


Gem-encrusted eternity bands

The ornate wedding ring that features a prominent center stone will not go out of style anytime soon though a gradual shift towards gem-encrusted bands has revitalized pavé-style rings. Pavé settings are distinguished by small stones set closely together; the band is “paved” with gems. Eternity bands embrace the symbolism of the traditional wedding ring along with the practical design that has long endeared pavé rings to active, busy women. The eternity band is a very special pavé-style ring that unmistakably symbolizes love and lasting commitment.

    I prefer the last design. Not too bulky. Though I don't like the color blue in it. It makes the ring look a little tacky
