The non-traditional rings that made it big
From mixed metal to colorful center stones and vintage inspired designs, we found out what was big in 2017! A simple solitaire ring might be the classic and safe choice but the rides went a step ahead and got themselves the dazzlers that were one of a kind! Check out the gorgeous ring designs that were huge last year:
There's a reason why this pink gold made a huge comeback. The feminine rosy shade flatters all skin tones!
An oval-cut diamond is already unique, but positioning it horizontally on the band, also called an east-west setting, made it a standout.
Sophisticated bows added just enough girly flourish to an engagement ring without being too flashy.
This trend gave the ring a very interesting dimension. It complemented the engagement ring with a simple twisted look.
This style became an obsession! It had more customizable options as well as a symbolic meaning of adding as much bands as you want for the milestones.
Mixed metal prongs or prongs that are a different metal than the rest of your engagement ring created a more seamless look with colorful center stones and are a simple way to mix up your engagement ring setting. Yellow gold prongs with a yellow center stone, or rose gold to play up a pink one were the highlight of this style!
This was a perfect combination for a confused bride who couldn’t decide between gold, yellow, platinum or rose gold. A yellow gold halo gave a white gold engagement ring a winning upgrade.
What's better than a band of diamonds? Multiple bands of diamonds. This style is twice as pretty and gave the engagement ring a more architectural, fashion-forward feel.
A round-cut diamond may be the most popular center stone, but pear-shaped and marquise-cut diamonds made a comeback last season. A huge plus about these tapered cuts? They instantly slim and elongate your fingers.
Intricate details on the sides of your band meant your ring looked amazing from all angles. The chain-link effect of this setting was loved by all and it symbolizes the eternal bond of marriage. Looks modern too.
Took a cue from Queen Victoria herself for vintage-inspired trends and the ring with Victorian or art deco flair became the top choice. You couldn't go wrong with an engagement ring with an heirloom quality; it's both glamorous and timeless.
Engagement rings were blooming with flowers, petals, vines and other details plucked straight from the garden in 2017. A floral-inspired halo adds a whimsical touch to this feminine ring.
Sapphires, rubies and emeralds are a great alternative for diamonds which give off instant vintage vibe. They were big in 2017 and might still lead this year because of their vibrant appeal.
A jewelry piece that marks the start of the next phase of your life and binds the promises that are made to each other. Brides nowadays are following a different path that is not only setting trends but changing the entire traditional course of weddings! Which ring among these would you like for your engagement/wedding?
