The Upside down Engagement Rings
Engagement rings have officially entered The Upside Down! We love this simple flip on tradition!
Upside down engagement rings incorporate geometric elements worn “the wrong way,” such as a pear diamond worn with the tip facing the palm of the hand, or a setting that position a diamond in a unique way.
If you’re concerned that wearing an upside down design will look, well, strange. Fear not! This new style is meant to capture attention and draw the eye to the intricate elements of your ring.
Every stone shape can be incorporated in an upside down style. The secret to this look is the architectural structure of the ring. Geometric designs shape this ring trend, and you’ll need a structured setting to showcase the upside down style. Choose engagement ring bands that dip down into inverted triangles, concave swirls, and angular edges for a bottom-heavy home for your centerpiece stone.
A Swirled Pear
Pear-shaped stones are one of the easiest shapes to adapt to the upside down trend. Set in a swirl style band, this nearly two-carat diamond can be worn both upside down and in a more traditional tip-up style.
The versatility of the swirl style lets you dip a toe into the trend…with the option to always revert back to a classic look. If the diamond was any other shape, the ring wouldn’t work in an upside down style. However, since the pear has a distinct top and bottom, this ring style is a win-win for both trendy and traditional brides.
A Crowning Masterpiece
When a centerpiece stone is deliberately set upside down, the ring resembles a tiara on the finger. The top of the stone should rise above the band to create a towering effect…and the center stone will appear as the hand’s crown jewel.
A Trillion Ways
Trillion stones are those that are shaped like a triangle, and these three-sided gems are ideal for an upside-down design. Like the pear shape, a trillion can be set with one tip down and the base of the triangle facing upward. This ring features a trillion diamond surrounded in a diamond halo.
You can easily convert this design into an upside down style by simply restructuring the band so that the tip rests within the diamond band.
Create Your Own!
You always have the option to design your own upside-down masterpiece. Rest a diamond or another gemstone inside a vertex of a downward facing triangular band
The upside down trend can be imagined in any way you want. While pear shaped stones are one of the most versatile styles for this trend, you can choose any shape to integrate into an upside down design.
