A new year is upon us which means in comes a new wave of trends for engagement rings! Here are some of our top picks so you have the latest and most stylish engagement ring.
1. Multi-Stone Ring
With the latest royal engagement, we predict a rise in popularity of three stone rings, emulating that of Meghan Markle. The future member of the royal family’s ring appears to feature 2 round brilliant cut diamonds flanking a cushion cut centre. However, here at Bespoke Diamonds, we can offer you a multi stone ring of whatever diamond cut variation you’d prefer.
2. Gemstone Engagement Ring
This year we have seen a dramatic rise in the number of people opting for a coloured gemstone over a classic diamond. Currently, sapphire is the most popular gemstone, however, we offer most stones from emerald to ruby to opal. Another gemstone that is on the rise is the Morganite stone, with its pinkish tones it is the perfect choice for the more unusual bride-to-be!
Although it may have been slightly overshadowed in recent years by the exponential rise in popularity of white gold, we have seen many people reverting back to this classic choice of metal. 18k yellow gold simply oozes class and elegance and is well-complemented on a simple solitaire setting, with white gold claws so to avoid the yellow gold colour making the diamond appear discoloured.
4. Oval Cut Diamonds
Fancy cut diamonds are without a doubt on the rise and one that we have tipped to become the front-runner in 2018 is the oval cut diamonds. With its elongated shape, it makes fingers appear more slender. It also looks well in a halo setting. Celebrities who were ahead of the curve with this trend are Blake Lively who wears a oval solitaire ring and Katie Holmes who wore a diamond oval halo engagement ring on a split band.
These are a few of our predictions for the coming year, however everyone’s tastes are so different, we never really know what to expect! If some of these trends appeal to you, make an appointment with us in our offices on Kildare Street, to make your dream ring a reality!
