Be a Timeless Bride (With a Trendy Twist)
Today’s brides want to make an individual fashion statement. But, it doesn’t mean that they want to venture too far from the beaten path when it comes to picking an engagement ring. Subtle details like small adjustments or hidden elements are just the right touches to make a ring unique to its wearer (Customization helps too, as almost 50% of brides opt to add a custom element to their rings – Knot Survey, 2015). If your brides are looking to make a classic statement, offer some of these suggestions:
Two-Stone Engagement Rings
With so much symbolism behind them, two-stone rings are great because they are multipurpose. They can be used to symbolize love or celebrate a special occasion all while providing a unique look. Bypass and halo-style — two elements that we’ve seen before keep this ring in a traditional playing field.
Horizontal Halo-Style Engagement Rings
Who knew something so simple as changing the direction of a stone would create such an updated engagement ring, even on the most classic style? East-to-west engagements do just that!
Solitaire Engagement Rings
This solitaire is one of my all-time favorites this year. It has a lot of substance to it, with a very substantial width shank, six prongs around the center stone, and beautiful sparkle surrounding the gallery. So classic with a glam touch. Sometimes adding a bit of hidden sparkle is all you need.
Diamond-Accented X Engagement Ring
This ring is for the bride looking for something none of her friends will have. We started with a very modern X shank, added a pattern to the inside, and topped the whole ring off with edgy and updated claw prongs holding the center stone in place.
Vintage-Inspired Engagement Rings
Vintage styling has made a huge statement this year. It is the trend customers are asking for more than anything. We have taken many classic styles and added feminine, romantic details through metal work and diamond accents to create timeless vintage looks.
Solitaire Engagement Rings with Hidden Elements
Gallery accents and two-tone styles have been on our bridal radar all year long. Brides love being able to add a little something special that only she might know about on the gallery of the ring, using unique details, and mixing up the metal color a bit with a touch of rose or yellow gold.
