Increasing demand for colored gemstones like sapphires

Think of rich colors like dark blues and deep greens. Look out also for striking pale hues like pastel pink, shimmering yellow, and jade or olive green.

Princess Diana helped fuel the demand when she chose a sapphire engagement ring (surrounded by diamonds). Kate Middleton also wore a similar combination for her ring.

Toi Et Moi Engagement Ring Trends

Two stone rings, also known as the Toi Et Moi style, have been around for centuries. The different stones complement each other, just as a couple does. Sentimentality and togetherness jump to mind with this style. Remember Jackie Kennedy’s ring?

It consisted of a diamond mixed with an emerald in a stunning Van Cleef & Arpels ring.

What shape diamond is on trend?

The traditional round-cut diamond is being replaced by the oval and pear-shaped diamond. Pear-shaped diamonds are growing in popularity due to their unconventional shape and sparkle factor. They appear more sparkly than most other cuts.

Round and Princess cut stones are also proving popular in the Halo style. Cushion-cut diamonds are trending too.

What color metal is on trend?

As well as the traditional yellow gold women are being given rose gold and even silver bands. Mixes of materials such as enamel or wood are also popular.

If gold is used to make it slightly different try finding a ring with a ribbed or satin finish.

What type of diamond?

The tendency is for lab-grown diamonds. These are diamonds that have been created in a laboratory. They have the same chemical properties and look the same. Yet they are more ethical, sustainable, and above all affordable.

Bezel Settings-for the modern active Woman

The Bezel setting draws attention to a central diamond that is held in place by a metal edging. Perfectly suited to today’s active woman, the stone is more protected. The band is normally narrow so that the focus is on the sparkle.
