Engagement Ring Trends 2017
New Year’s Eve is fast approaching and with it comes a bounty of new engagement ring trends that are set to become must-haves for brides-to-be in 2017. Shopping for an engagement ring but not sure where to start? We’ve rounded up the most popular styles for 2017 to take the hard work out of ring shopping.
Rose gold engagement rings have been popular for some time and will only continue to grow in popularity in the New Year. A warm and feminine hue, rose gold is a stylish alternative to yellow gold (which is tipped to be the top trend for 2018).
Flattering to most skin tones and less susceptible to tarnish that other precious metals, rose gold is here to stay!
Four Claw Solitaire
A classic style that continues to remain popular among contemporary brides, four claw solitaire rings consist of a single round diamond held in place with four symmetrical prongs.
A simple and uncluttered setting, timeless four claw solitaire rings allow your diamond to stand out without having to compete with delicate details
Favoured by celebrities including Natalie Portman, the twin halo style is a trend bound to make waves in 2017. A statement design, the twin halo features two rows of diamonds around a centre stone, usually cut in a cushion, pear or oval shape.
While contemporary in style, the twin halo takes its sartorial cues from the art deco era.
The cushion cut proved very popular in 2016 but as we move forward, geometric designs are poised to have their moment in the spotlight. Returning to prominence after first becoming popular in the roaring 1920s, geometric shaped diamond engagement rings are often set in platinum or white gold.
The Non Engagement Ring
These days not every woman wants to wear a traditional engagement ring, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that the ‘non engagement ring’ style will be one of the biggest jewellery trends in 2017. From coloured gemstones usually reserved for dress rings to asymmetric designs, ‘non engagement rings’ come in many shapes or sizes - as unique as the bride who wears them.
