Diamond Trends This Year
Today’s most on trend rings encompass an array of unique details that showcase the ever-evolving definition of the engagement ring. Solitaires are classic and destined to remain vogue, but modern engagement rings may include custom designs that are uniquely inspired by the couple. They also include trendy, traditiondefying looks embraced by fierce and fearless fashionistas.
The most important thing is to choose a ring you know you’ll love for the rest of your life.
Unique Band Shapes
Every ring has at least one thing in common the circle band.
Three of the most popular non-traditional bands:
- Open bands: Not all circles are infinite, and the open band setting features two centerpiece stones at each end. Since this band isn’t closed, the open sides showcase the middle of the ring finger and draws attention to the details of the setting.
- Chevron bands: This funky ring features one or multiple strips of metal dipping into the signature “v” shape of the chevron pattern. The “v” can point to the root or tip of the finger depending on how you prefer to wear it. Diamonds can be incorporated into these rings in a pave setting, or they can be nestled within the triangular tip of the chevron.
- Square bands: Design a ring with edge literally. Square bands evoke the mod sculptural designs of the 60s, but today’s settings capture a sleek elegance with clean lines and classic details. Complement the angular structure with square and rectangular shaped gemstones like princess, Asscher, cushion or emerald shapes.
