engagement ring trends in 2017

Choosing an engagement ring is a momentous decision. It’s a piece you’ll want to love 20 years from now just as much as you do the day you receive it. At the same time, your ring should also be a faithful reflection of your personal style.

That sounds like a tall order, but it’s one that the experts at Eiseman Jewels having been helping couples with for over 50 years. If you’re planning on getting engaged in 2017, read on to learn about the styles we predict will be most popular in the coming year.

The Solitaire

The classic solitaire is the epitome of simplicity and sophistication, and it will never go out of style. This ring continues to be a popular choice for couples regardless of the shape of the stone. Rather than spending a majority of the budget on the ring itself, many couples are opting to place the emphasis on choosing a desirable quality center diamond.

The Three-Stone Ring

A three-stone engagement ring features a large diamond framed by two perfectly matched side diamonds. Apart from looking stunning together, these three stones symbolize your past, present and future as a couple.

As you might imagine, setting a row of diamonds on a band elevates a ring’s sparkle and shine factor dramatically. The most classic three-stone engagement rings feature round brilliant diamonds, but this enduring style looks beautiful with any stone shape, metal or setting.

The Halo

Traditional halo styles have been popular for years, but couples are now springing for more distinctive designs, such as double or ornate halos. Designers are also updating their halo designs by using diamonds of varying shapes and sizes. A cushion-cut halo or a halo with colored gemstones is a stunning way to make your ring stand out from the crowd.

Aside from their beautiful artistic touches, halo settings are also popular because they pair beautifully with every diamond shape and cut. The small diamonds in the halo give the ring a vintage feel, so while halos are very of-the-moment, they also offer a timeless appeal.

The One-Of-A-Kind Ring

If you’re looking for a ring that no one else in the world has, consider a custom-designed engagement ring. Truly unique and packed with personal significance, custom engagement rings are a popular choice because their possibilities are endless.

Couples can work together with the experts at Eiseman Jewels to create a ring that embodies their personal style and personality. Customization is one trend that will never go out of style!

Fashion trends

The jewelry industry has seen a recent influx of simple, modern pieces. We saw thinner, smaller, more tailored styles with a strong influence of rose gold and plenty of colored gemstones. For daytime, think easy-to-wear, less formal pieces. Choker and lariat necklaces were in vogue. We spotted plenty of feminine motifs, such as feathers and butterflies, and linear earrings and stackable rings and bracelets rounded out the offerings.

Bridal trends

Halo engagement rings are still extremely popular, and the trend shows no signs of diminishing. Similar to the fashion jewelry world, simple, traditional, classic styles are making a comeback for bridal jewelry. Lots of couples are opting for vintage looks with a unique twist, such as hand-engraving on the shank.
