With spring comes new beginnings—what will yours be? Perhaps you’ll say “yes” or “I do” and embark on a lifelong adventure. If that’s the case, then these are the ring trends that strike that fine balance of being uniquely now yet positively timeless.

Unusual Halos

The halo engagement ring is no longer a new trend, and they’re showing every sign of being here to stay. What’s new is the creativity of the halo designs and the wider range of styles. The trick to nailing this trend is simple—find the halo that speaks to you.

Unusual Halos

The Nottingham has a floral-inspired halo; the Cordoba features an octagonal, geometric look; the Rhodes is bold and strong with architectural metalwork.

Updated Classics

The solitaire is always popular for a reason, but that doesn’t mean you’re confined to cookie-cutter look. Different stone shapes, unique bands and stylish settings are all here to make your solitaire pop. This trend is traditional with a twist.

Updated Classics

The East-West Classic Radiant turns a Radiant solitaire on its side; the Fiji Round has an eye-catching twisted band; the Verona Cushion has unexpected extra sparkle along the profile.

Pear Cut Stones

The Pear cut is becoming more and more popular as the teardrop shape and vintage feel appeal to brides who like to think outside the box. The shape will elongate the fingers, too. This trend is best expressed with simpler settings that let the unique shape stand out.

Pear Cut Stones

The Bali Pear cut has an intertwined trellis setting; the Fiji Pear cut has a trendy textured band but still allows the stone to shine.

Focus on Bands

Brides are going beyond the simple engagement ring + wedding band combination. One one hand (pun intended!) some brides are building a band wardrobe with many different bands that they can stack with their engagement ring. Two, three—even four or five bands are en vogue. On the other end of the spectrum, some brides prefer to make life simpler by wearing a single bold eternity band in lieu of their engagement ring. A single eternity band can be more comfortable and laid-back without sacrificing style and sparkle.

Focus on Bands

Stackable looks mix texture, such as Radiant Grace Petite, Oasis Petite and Infinite Grace Petite; a single eternity band can do the trick when it has some flash like the Eternal Love Bold.
