5 Hot Engagement Ring Trends

5 Hot Engagement Ring Trends

Diamond engagement rings will never go out of style. They are as popular today as they were many years ago. However, some styles come and go and some types of rings are becoming trendier than others. Here are five trends in engagement rings that are very popular this year.

Halo rings

A halo ring usually has one round diamond in the middle and it is surrounded by a halo of smaller accenting stones that may or may not be diamonds. This creates the “bigger is better” effect. For example, the right setting surrounding a large stone can make it appear much larger and you can have a ring similar to many modern day celebrities. The amazing rings worn by Olivia Wilde, Nicole Richie, and Amy Adams, are just three fabulous examples of halo engagement rings, and the ring owned by Carrie Underwood is believed to be worth in excess of a million dollars. What woman wouldn’t love to have something that resembles Carrie’s halo ring with its large fancy yellow stone in the middle?

Flowers

Flowers are definitely hot and you can purchase some amazing rings with flower themes, when you shop. Some rings are flower centered like the one that Liam Hemsworth gave to Miley Cyrus. When you go with a top online jeweler you can find some lovely viola flower rings with a lovely stone set in a rose.

Flower motifs are very popular because they represent spring and the renewal that it brings, as two people start a new life together. There should be plenty of fine flower motif selections available for some time to come.

Vintage

The look of yesterday is a popular as ever and it shows in many of the antique style engagement rings you’ll see on the hands of famous women. Penelope Cruz, Milla Jovovich, and Kate Moss, have some of the most unique antique rings you will find.

Many vintage rings have very ornate settings and are hand engraved, and the Victorian style diamond engagement ring is one of the all-time classics. Currently, there is an abundance of finely produced antique style rings, so you do not have to pay a fortune for old rings.

Color

Although white diamonds represent purity, colored stones are very distinctive and present a unique look that many celebrities are going for. Whether it is the pink sparkler on the hand of Jennifer Lopez or the 5 carat yellow beauty worn by Kelly Clarkson, diamond engagement rings with colored diamonds are extremely popular. You can find a good assortment of colored stones at your online jeweler, and yellow and chocolate are some of the top sellers.

Horizontal Settings

If you want something different, try a diamond engagement ring with the stone set horizontally. This provides a very unique look that so many women are going for this year. This kind of setting works very well for oval shaped stones. Also, remember that choosing jewelers is just as important as rings and loose diamonds, so choose an online jeweler with plenty of experience and the best guarantees.

5 Stunning Celebrity Engagement Rings

For a long time, no one could get a clear picture of the ring that Johannes Huebl gave Olivia Palermo. However, lately she has made a few public appearances and people have managed to get close pics of the ring. Although it has a rather simple band made from white gold, there is nothing simple about the very large diamond that is attached. It may not be a million dollar sparkler, but the stone is a yellow cushion cut diamond, of at least 3 carats in weight.

Blake Lively

If you cannot imagine a ring worth two million dollars, check out the sparkler that Ryan Reynolds gave Blake Lively, recently. The main feature of this ring is the enormous 12 carat stone that is oval in shape.

When it comes to celebrity engagement rings, you will not see many oval shaped stones. Many of the rich and famous prefer the princess cut, these days. Blake’s ring setting is made from rose gold and contains pave diamonds. At first glance, the large stone appears to be clear, but if you look closer you will see that it’s light pink in colour, and perfectly matches the rose gold.

Victoria Beckham

It is something special when a woman receives an engagement ring from a man, but Victoria has received 13 different engagement rings from soccer player David Beckham, over the past 15 years. The total value of these rings is supposed to be a little over 4 million pounds. Her ring with the heart shaped diamond is said to be worth slightly over a million pounds. All of these rings are stunning and most women would be proud to own any one of them.

Jessica Biel

If you like very large diamonds, you will be enamored with the massive stone that Justin Timberlake gave Jessica Biel. The diamond is believed to be about 6 carats in weight. There are many other diamonds surrounding the large centre stone, and it has an antique appearance. The vintage look is definitely “in”, and the amazing art deco antique diamond engagement ring worn by Scarlett Johansson is a good example.

Amal Alamuddin

Many people have never heard of Amal Alamuddin. After all, she was just a London barrister and activist. However, that all changed when she said “yes” to George Clooney with a huge 7 carat diamond engagement ring. The stone is an emerald cut, so it is not a sparkler, but it is impressive none the less. It also has two baguette diamonds set in platinum and is reportedly valued at about $468,000 pounds.
