It’s a tale as old as time. You meet, you fall in love, and before long you’re searching for the perfect treasure for that perfect someone—the gift that will keep on giving for the rest of your lives together. You’re carrying on the time-honored tradition of the engagement ring.
So where do you start? One way to look is to check out the trends that seem exciting to all the other suitors out there. You certainly don’t have to go with a popular choice just because it’s popular, but checking out engagement jewelry trends can at least give you an idea of what you do or don’t like.
1) Delicate Details
Rings with delicate, feminine details like narrow bands and scalloped pave accents rule the roost this year. Split shanks are also popular. For a modern trifecta, combine all three!
2) Nature’s Inspiration
Are you loving the fall leaves? So are 2015 rings! Stones cut and set like twining branches or floral arrangement add natural accents to today’s bands.
3) Unusual Stones
Pick wild colors or unusual cuts, and you’ll fit right in this year. Diamonds don’t have to be white, and rings don’t have to be diamond! Unusual cuts like marquis are also the rage.
4) Men’s Engagement Rings
Today, we’re in the middle of an engagement ring revolution! Traditional rules are changing to accommodate all sorts of people who may choose to give rings to each other. For instance, matching men’s engagement rings are becoming all the rage, and while they tend to have more architectural lines and wider bands than women’s rings, beautiful mixed metals or embedded precious stones make their designs uniquely beautiful.
5) Insured Rings
