Sure, silver diamond sparklers will always be on-trend. But some brides-to-be are loving the idea of rocking something completely different and out of the ordinary on their left hands. Many are choosing rings that really show off their personality. Even celebs have chosen the road less traveled by. Fergie’s engagement ring from husband Josh Duhamel features a wide band with a four-carat brilliant cut diamond. The design also features cognac diamonds set in a starburst pattern around the center stone. Halle Berry’s other half got down on one knee with a diamond and emerald ring, while Rebecca Romijn was proposed to with a six-carat yellow diamond engagement band. But get this – the diamond dangles from the actual ring!
Say hello to vintage
Vintage-style rings dripping in diamonds are gaining popularity among brides and the trend shows no signs of slowing down. With intricate and exquisite details, it’s a classic look that can’t be beat.
Instead of the traditional round-cut diamond, the ladies are loving other eye-catching shapes. Pear, cushion, marquise and emerald-cut diamonds are among the most requested. A double-halo shape, which features two tiers of smaller diamonds, is also a top choice – it gives the appearance of a larger stone for a smaller price tag.
Instead of gravitating toward silver, try gold! The pinkish-gold color looks stunning on almost all skin tones. This pretty metal, which is actually gold and copper alloy, has a certain warmth and vintage charm that draws women to it.
Kate Middleton may be to blame for colored engagement rings rising in popularity, due to the sapphire stone displayed on her left hand. Many future brides are opting for yellow or emerald-colored stones over the typical white diamond. Kelly Clarkson took to the trend and is the proud owner of a large yellow rock draped on her finger.
