Rose GoldRose gold has always been a favourite of bride-to-be’s over the last couple of years. If you love its warm, romantic look, then you can take a step further by combining the beautiful morganite gemstone with a rose gold setting. The semi-precious gemstone has a warm, pink hue set in rose gold, creating a breathtaking effect.
East-WestThe east-west style is trendy as they’re comfortable to wear with a natural fit than the more traditional north-south setting. Plus, the horizontal arrangement is ideal for everyday use, something you'll likely want in an engagement ring.
Hidden HaloTraditional halos are known to be a classic. Hidden halos, on the other hand, give an impressive view on your engagement ring from any angle. Its delicate halo design wraps the underside of the centre stone, giving it a rounder appearance. It has the right amount of detail making it a favourite among vintage and solitaire styles creating a subtle, shiny look.
Stacking bandsMany are obsessed with the stackable trend, and it's easy to see why ‒ it's customizable. You can pile as many bands as you want to represent the different milestones of your relationship. Moreover, this chic, cool-girl look has no rules.
The unique design combines two-crown shaped bands that form a massive ring. You have the option to wear them individually to show off a more regal look, or as a pair to recreate an ornate design.
Pear ShapeA pear-shaped design is ideal for the more fashion-forward woman, with a modern shape that looks sleek and elegant. It has spectacular rose gold and white hues. You can opt to raise the ring with a pave setting or leave the diamond as it is for elegance and simplicity.
Coloured GemstonesDiamonds have always been a stone of choice when it comes to engagement rings. However, coloured gemstones have been growing in popularity as well. Not only that the coloured hues that stand out, but also because they hold a more profound meaning based on their colours.
These can either signify your birthstone or the date of your anniversary. Gemstones make the perfect pop of colour, and they're fantastic for accents and centre stones.
Split ShankA more contemporary take on split shank rings is putting two bands that run parallel to one another, with a gemstone separating them. It creates an effect wherein the stone looks like it’s being suspended up in the air, giving it a more intricate touch.
Final ThoughtsAn engagement ring is more than just having a glistening rock that you can beautifully admire on your ring finger. It held a much deeper meaning ‒ a symbol of commitment as a couple and meant to fit your personality. To ensure that it's a perfect fit and the design is tailored explicitly for you, looking for custom jewellery is one of the best decisions you will make.
Whether you're more inclined to a rose-gold setting with an emerald-cut diamond, or a platinum setting with an oval-cut sapphire, at the end of the day, it's all about choosing your style and exploring your options.
