As we embark on the New Year, we look at the trends we’re set to see in 2019 for engagement rings. Choosing the perfect ring for your loved one is tough – everyone has a different taste and there is a lot of men often feel the pressure of ‘getting it right’, which is why many of our customers present their loved one with the experience of designing the ring together, to ensure they love the ring!
They always say Diamonds are forever but in 2019 other gems are set to carry the same sentiment! The classic Diamond doesn’t always have to be the centrepiece as an Engagement Ring should fit personal style. According to experts, there has been an increase in Engagement Rings created using coloured stones this year and this is expected to continue into 2019!
Yellow Gold and Rose Gold Bands
White Gold and Platinum bands have been very popular over the years, but in 2019 it’s time to start thinking about the warmer toned bands like the Yellow Gold and Rose Gold. Yellow Gold is considered a distinct choice as it adds softness to the piece which is why we’re expecting to see more of these over the next year.
Vintage style engagement rings are set to be everywhere throughout 2019, and halo-style are set to follow. Many think a halo setting can only be added to a round stone, but this is not the case! It can, in fact, be added to any cut.
Choosing the right style of setting for you
We provide expert advice when it comes to setting your stones in place properly, ensuring they won’t get lost while best suiting your lifestyle. There are many exciting ways to set stones including a classic looking claw setting, to a rub over setting where a 360-degree border of metal securely holds your precious stone in place. There is also the option of customising your setting to have hidden initials, scrolls, hearts and more.
If you’re thinking about popping the question during 2019, present the idea of designing the engagement ring together to ensure she gets the ring she has always dreamt of. Design a bespoke ring together and you’ll even get the chance to have a go at the bench, making the memory even more special. We can help guide your ideas and even include the trends if you’d like to incorporate these into your engagement ring.
