May 6, 2020

If you’re in a serious relationship (and maybe even if you’re not πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ) , we can almost guarantee you’ve stalked every social platform in search of your dream Engagement Ring. πŸ’One of our favorite things to highlight in any Engagement Session/Wedding is of course our soon to be brides stunning diamond! From traditional and simple, to unique and flashy, the styles and options are absolutely endless. so we’ve compiled a list of some trends we’ve seen lately that we’ve been obsessed with to help you narrow down your search!

Dramatic Stones. When searching for the perfect engagement ring, most begin with deciding on their favorite style/shape for the center stone. With this typically being the most eye catching aspect of your ring, we think its super important to do your research and find a style that fits you best! Lately, we have been adoring the more flashy, bulky diamonds. While simple will ALWAYS be a trend, we have been seeing dramatic, glamorous diamonds more and more and we are loving it! πŸ™ŒπŸ»

Vintage. When we think vintage, we think details and delicacy. We also associate more old school, vintage styles with heirlooms. Whether your ring has been passed down through generations and its finally your turn to show it off, or your in love with the idea of passing your shiny new diamond to generations after you, this style will always have our hearts. This style is absolutely timeless and we cant get enough. πŸ’•

Epic Bands. We will always have a place in our hearts for the more dainty, subtle bands, BUT, can we talk about how trendy a larger more unique band has been?! We’ve even seen more creativity than ever with layering different style bands to come up with your own personalized set of stunning rings. This has DEFINITELY been a popular trend amongst todays brides and we are in love! πŸ‘πŸ»

Gold. For a while we thought silver was taking the top spot in engagement ring trends, but we truly think its a close tie! We’ve seen seeing SO many of our brides showing off their gold bands these days. Not only does choosing a gold finish add a beautiful warmth to an engagement ring, but it will also stand out as a timeless, romantic piece. Although gold can be more pricey, the class and elegance of your style will not go unnoticed! ✨

Cushion Cut. Known for its soft and gentle shape, Cushion Cut Engagement Rings have been a HUGE go to trend amongst couples! This style ties back into the idea of a traditional look, while also giving off a modern vibe. Did we mention this shape diamond gives off some of the most beautiful colored sparkles when the light hits it just right?! You can’t go wrong 😍

We know picking out an Engagement Ring is a very sentimental experience, even if you’re just looking for fun! An Engagement Ring solidifies love, trust, and so many other meaningful promises in a relationship, and finding your dream ring can be tricky at first! We hope these tips lead you to the perfect fit for you and your style. πŸ’πŸ’•
