Styles and fashions come and go and engagement rings are no exception.  Whether you prefer classic elegance to modern sophistication this year promises a diverse range of options for those seeking the perfect symbol of love and commitment.

It’s important to choose a ring based on your personal tastes and preferences but it’s good to know what the choices others are making.

These are some of the biggest trends in engagement rings that you should consider in the coming year.

Trilogy Style

A trilogy design showcases a larger centre stone surrounded by two smaller stones that can either complement the centre stone or contrast with it.  Each stone represents a period of the relationship, past, present and future. 

Choosing three of the same stones gives a classic elegant look.  The most popular choice for centre stones has been a diamond, which symbolizes purity and endurance.  More and more wedding couples are choosing blue sapphires, red rubies or green emeralds as complementary stones to sit on either side.

Choosing a Ring Together

Gone are the days when one has to ask the parent’s permission or negotiate a dowry.  Modern couples discuss the future and make important decisions together.  It has become more common for couples to discuss what they want and can afford for their engagement ring and wedding bands.

Collaborating on the ring design lets you incorporate elements that are important to both of you.  Since most successful couples will tell you that marriage is all about compromise, getting into the habit early while you choose your ring, sets you up for success in the future.

Dainty Rings

Dainty rings exhibit a minimalist design philosophy featuring clean simple lines which appeal to those who appreciate a more understated style.

Lightweight rings are very easy to wear on an everyday basis.  They are comfortable and don’t interfere with daily activities.  They are a practical choice for people who use their hands a lot.

If you have petite hands or prefer a more modest presentation, you should consider choosing a dainty engagement ring.

Oval Stones

Round diamonds have been the top choice for engagement ring centre stones for many years.  This year, oval-cut stones have become just as popular as round stones.

Both styles are fantastic choices.  The elongated shape of oval stones creates the illusion of long slender fingers.  Many women find this particularly flattering.  Oval stones can appear larger than round stones of the same carat weight when looked at from above.  If your idea is that you want the largest stone possible, this cut can help create that appearance while still operating on a budget.

Lab Grown Diamonds

Synthetic or man-made diamonds are increasing in popularity every year.  Lab-grown diamonds have the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as mined diamonds. 

Lab-grown diamonds are conflict-free.  The stones are “grown” with precise technology that involves no mining or illicit trade that can result in ethical conflicts.

More and more couples are opting for lab-grown diamonds that offer the beauty, radiance, and durability of mined diamonds but can be purchased for a fraction of their price.
