With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it stands to reason that plenty of devoted couples will soon be getting engaged. If you’re in one of those devoted couples, let’s first say congratulations.
You may have heard this before, but the hardest part is behind you. You’ve found the right person, and now it’s just a matter of making things official.
Of course, making things official involves working out every detail. This means planning out the place, the speech, and getting the right ring.
This last part is where a lot of people struggle. Which ring is the right one?
While we can’t tell anybody which engagement ring is the best choice for them, we can tell you about some of the most popular engagement ring styles this year and see if any of them inspire you.
Pear-shaped diamonds are by no means a new concept. They can be traced back to the 15th century, to a stone polisher in the Flanders region of Northern Belgium.
Nevertheless, they have come back into style and are now being bought quite readily. As with any trend, various companies and consumers are making it their own, whether that means setting the stone at a new angle or making it out of different materials.
If you’re looking into pear-cut diamonds, you can find some great options at rockher.com.
Yet another of the most popular engagement ring styles out there, the half moon diamond is a diamond that is sculpted into a semi-circle. The most interesting part isn’t the shape of the diamond, though.
In many cases, the diamond itself is placed on one of the edges of the band rather than directly on top of it. One major upside is that some of the most popular designs are not very expensive as far as rings go, with the most famous model coming in at $3900.
Much like its inspiration, half-moon diamonds can add a lot to a proposal, whether you’re going out for a night on the town or staying in with a nice pizza.
Yellow gold was a huge trend a few decades ago, but it’s starting to make a comeback. When it comes to rings, there are three different types of gold: white, yellow, and rose.
They are named because of their color, with white gold looking more silvery, yellow gold being the shiny yellow we tend to associate with gold, and rose gold being a more reddish color.
None of them are all that different from the others. Each one is an alloy of gold and other metals. Their famous colors are a result of the metals they’re mixed in with.
Since they’re all valued based on how much gold is in them, which you should choose is a matter of personal preference.
These are only a few of the most popular engagement ring styles right now. There are plenty more out there and we simply didn’t have time to cover them all. However, if you are interested, we encourage you to do a little more research on your own.
