A new year brings with it new trends and new engagement rings. Here are our favorites for 2014 and they're all available in our Wedding Collection.
Solitaire Settings are making a comeback in a big way and have been spotted on the hands of celebrities recently. Lauren Conrad shared the happy news of her engagement with a photo of her Tiffany Solitaire Ring set with a round brilliant diamond. Even under the weight of a 15 carat stone, Kanye West selected a Solitaire setting for the ring he presented to Kim Kardashian late in 2013. The solitaire is simple and elegant, allowing your center stone to take the spotlight.
Yellow Gold is back! With many brides favoring classic styles, both yellow and rose gold seem to have a cult following. Look for this trend to stick around: as the jewelry market continues to trend towards yellow gold, women will look to complement the trend in their engagement rings.
With some help from a certain royal (ahem, Kate Middleton), Sapphires still have a firm grip on the engagement market. Not only are they typically less expensive than the traditional diamond, they are also a stunning choice for brides who want an alternative center stone.
East- West Settings
The East-West setting trend makes any center stone look larger and works with oval stones, emerald cuts etc. It’s also eye catching and sure to have people stopping to look.
Unique Colored Center Stones
For the bride who wants to stray from tradition, uniquely colored center stones are the way to go. Right in line with the Sapphire trend, the engagement market is seeing a higher demand for different colored center stones and tinted diamonds such as Laura’s Rose Diamond Solitaire Ring below.
