Go for the (Yellow) Gold

Yellow gold continues to grow in popularity, while we’ve seen rose gold stagnate a bit. White gold and platinum continue to be great options as well, depending on your personal preference. Oval-cut diamonds are still very popular, giving a larger look with a timeless silhouette. Pear-shape and marquise diamonds continue to stand strong after their comeback.

Simplicity Speaks Volumes

With ring stacks still in high demand, consider a yellow gold solitaire mounting with a round center diamond or gemstone. It’s classic and pairs well with any wedding band. You can stack as your styles change and as you reach new milestones in your lives together, while continuing to wear your engagement ring as the symbol of your forever love.

Bezel-set rings are also an elegant choice. They offer simplicity, and depending on the finish can add an Old-World charm while drawing the eye to the center diamond.

For a Different Style...

Setting your diamond East-West or having the prongs set opposite your center stone can add originality to a classic look. Or, stay with the celebrity trends and go for an open bypass ring like Megan Fox. The possibilities are endless for unique details, halo styles, finishes, and band combinations. Save some photos for inspiration and try some on in the store to see what feels right on your finger.

Our Sales Associates Suggest...

Some of our sales associates have gotten more requests for 2-stone rings, also called ‘Toi et Moi’, and three-stone rings signifying a couple’s past, present and future. Especially popular are three-stone rings with petite side stones, especially oval cuts.
