Three Engagement Ring Trends

By AMA Staff

The diamond solitaire may reign supreme, but a few new styles are causing brides’ eyes to twinkle.

THE HALO
This is a round- or princess-cut diamond bordered by smaller diamonds that bring the bling. “Almost half of our engagement rings have halos. It makes your centre diamond look larger and it’s absolutely stunning,” says Chau Lui, director of operations for Paris Jewellers.

ROSE GOLD ACCENTS
White gold and platinum are still all the rage, but threads of the pink-hued metal have appeared in recent designs. “We’re seeing flashes of colour come back,” Lui says. “Rose gold gives a softer look to the ring.”

THE INVISIBLE-SET PRINCESS CUT
This type of centrepiece consists of four princess-cut diamonds, set together in a square, to give the illusion of a larger sparkler. “People are getting that big look they want and they’re able to stay in their price range,” Lui says.
