4 Trends for the 2015 Engagement (Holiday) Season

Every year between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day we see an increase in engagements. We believe this season brings family and friends together, so what better time to celebrate a new engagement? And, it gives you time to plan for a summer wedding!

This year, we’ve been noticing an increase in a few bridal trends that we wanted to share:

1. Yellow gold. This metal hearkens back to a more elegant and romantic time and its popularity continues to grow. Gold is a precious metal that is strong and timeless.

2. Two Tone. For those who are not sure about saying yes to a yellow gold engagement ring, we’ve seen an increase in two-tone bridal jewelry. This option allows you to have a touch of yellow gold, but maintain the presence of a white metal. Two-tone diamond rings also provide many brides the confidence to mix golds and not feel like they have to commit to a watch, earrings, necklace and bracelets in the same tone.

3. Halo free. We don’t believe diamond halos will ever be out of style, but we are seeing more and more brides choosing an engagement ring without a halo. In an effort to be different and stand-out from their friends they are breaking away from what was so popular for so long.

4. Multi-stones. Solitaires and single-stone rings with diamond halos and diamond shanks will always be classic. But this year we are seeing more multi-stone rings being selected than we have in some time. Couples preparing for marriage appreciate the symbolism of past, present and future, or you and me, in engagement rings featuring two or three stones.

Regardless of the ring you choose, remember that this is one piece of jewelry you are wearing every day, forever. Make sure this special piece represents your style and reflects what you love.

And for guys getting started on the process of purchasing a ring, our friends at The Plunge offer some great tips for shopping and selecting the perfect diamond.

Is an Interesting Detailed Shank the New Diamond Halo?

Diamond halos have been the biggest bridal trend for the last few years. Surrounding a center stone with a halo of smaller diamonds creates a contrast that will make the center diamond appear larger. Plus, we agree with the multitude of brides that have chosen a diamond halo engagement ring – it is simply beautiful and elegant.

CL102-4We don’t believe the diamond halo will every go away, and we don’t want it to disappear. But there does seem to be a slight movement within millennial brides to choose something different and stand apart from the crowd while showing their own style – an engagement ring without a diamond halo.

They are bringing the focus back to the center diamond. There seems to be more interest in “quality over quantity” and more attention is being paid to the shank of the engagement ring. Whether it is braided, engraved, split or covered in pave diamonds, more engaged couples are eager to express their personal style with details beyond the diamond halo.
