Engagement Ring Choices
Picking the right engagement ring is always a difficult choice. But to help make it a bit easier as you set about planning your wedding, here are 5 popular trends in engagement ring style. Fancy Diamonds - No, these aren't just fancy versions of regular diamonds. Rather, "fancy diamonds" are those with natural colour so clear it shows itself off to the naked eye. Most diamonds have traces of colour that can't be detected, but fancy diamonds - trendy choices in engagement rings - are as vibrant as gemstones

  • Gemstones - Speaking of gemstones, they too have been trendy in engagement rings, ever since Prince William gave Kate Middleton an ornate sapphire (the same worn by Princess Diana) for an engagement ring. It's a bold option, but a coloured stone is certainly a popular alternative.
  • Eternity Rings - Prominently featured at Desirable Diamonds online finest diamond jewellery at Desirable Diamonds (finest diamond jewellery at Desirable Diamonds), eternity rings are often meant for anniversaries or special commemorations. However, they also make wonderful alternatives to traditional engagement rings. Their rings of small diamonds are meant to symbolize eternal love, so the meaning works beautifully for engagement.
  • Halo Settings - Halo settings are simply rings in which the stone is encased in a circular setting. In particularly ornate examples, these settings themselves are lined with tiny diamonds. Overall, it's a slightly vintage look, and one that's very trendy in recent years.
  • Trinity Rings - Somewhat similar to eternity rings in symbolism, trinity rings feature three diamonds - one central stone, typically larger than the two flanking it on either side. The idea is for the three diamonds to represent the past, present and future of a relationship, and the rings are gorgeous as engagement pieces.
