The 5 2018 engagement ring trends you don’t want to miss

November 10, 2017

Magical marriages begin with magical engagement rings. But how do you pick the perfect ring for YOU?

With so many styles of engagement rings to choose from, it’s no wonder ladies often want to know what’s hot or in style.

Based on what we’ve seen in 2017 flying off the shelves, here are our picks for the hottest engagement ring trends for 2018.

5 Stunning Trends from Social Media to the Red Carpet


Ornate Halo

Simply put, a halo is a circle of little diamonds that surround the big one. Halos were a big seller in 2017 and that trend doesn’t appear to be slowing down as we head into 2018.

In particular, the ornate halo is a very personal way to make your ring stand out from the crowd… choose the style or options you like.


You may have heard the saying “there’s no school like the old school”, and that applies to engagement rings! An engagement ring with an heirloom quality is both glamorous and timeless, and fashion-conscious buyers have been coming back to vintage pieces in droves.

Rose Gold

Without a doubt, rose gold is the new metal of choice for brides who want something unique. The biggest thing we keep hearing from our customers is that the rose color really makes diamonds POP!


You might not expect the east-west design to be as popular as it is given that other traditional styles like vintage are making a comeback, but you’d be wrong!

East-West means the stone is placed horizontally across the finger (instead of vertically) and is a fresh way to use elongated diamonds like ovals, marquise and emeralds. These elongated stones have always been popular as diamond jewelry but this new design trend is helping them make a resurgence in the engagement ring arena.

Split Shank

There's something very delicate and modern about a split band. The band itself literally splits in the middle to support the center diamond, and the split shank is a fresh new take on a traditional engagement ring setting.

Bonus Trend #6 - Customization

We promised you 5 trends in engagement rings, but how about a bonus that applies to each of them?!?!?! That trend is customization.

We’re getting more and more requests to customize engagement rings than ever before! Some customizations are simple such as swapping out a stone, and others are more complex even down to designing your own ring.

The good news is we can customize any ring however you want and make it completely your own!
