Daydreaming about the perfect engagement ring? If you’re ready to hit the local engagement ring store to pick out the perfect rock for your ring finger, now could be a good time to take a look at the most popular trending engagement ring styles for spring.
1. The Solitaire
It shouldn’t be surprising to see the solitaire ring at the head of this list; it’s a classic of the engagement ring genre, and deservedly so. Its simple round or oval shape allows the diamond to shine in simplicity—because, when you have a great diamond on your finger, what more do you really need? If simplicity and sophistication is your thing, then it’s a solitaire you need on your finger this spring.
2. Off-set stones
If you’re looking for something a bit more up to date, something to give you a bit more of a cool factor and make sure everyone sits up and takes notice, then this is probably one of the best engagement ring trends for you. Off-setting the diamonds so that they appear to be floating in the air was once the reserve of cocktail rings, but that is no longer the case, and choosing an unusual diamond in a unique spiral or geometric rings is sure to get those heads turning.
3. Three-stone rings
Why have one diamond when you can have three? Three-stone rings are, as the name would suggest, rings that have three separate stone settings rather than just the one. Traditionally, three-stone rings would feature one large stone with two smaller stones to the side, but they’ve had a major overhaul. These days, three-stone ring designs tend to give prominence to every stone, and they experiment with the placement of said stones with often stunning results. If bling is your thing, three-stone engagement rings need to be at the top of your list.
4. Gothic Glam
If you aren’t a traditional bride and you’re more likely to walk down the aisle to Black Sabbath than the wedding march, you’ll be delighted to know that one of the biggest engagement ring trends right now is Gothic. What does the Gothic engagement ring trend look like? Big, build designs, square settings, diamonds adorned with fleur-de-lis embellishments, and darker-than-average metals, that’s what.
5. The Modern Halo
Halo engagement rings are hardly new, but they’ve moved away from the more traditional pavé halo around a central stone design to create something special for brides who want to really stand out from the crowd. From fantastically fanned crowns to bursting stars made entirely of tiny diamonds, the modern halo trend has a lot to offer, and it’s all spectacular.
These variations on the halo are nowhere near classic. The best part—some of these styles are created on separate bands, so you can switch up the look from as simple to as intricate as you like. What’s more, because halo rings are often designed across several separate bands, you can really customize this trend and make it your own.
Now that you’re prepared with these trends and ideas, it’s time to go ring shopping!
