Getting engaged is something that almost everyone dreams of happening one day. Whether you’re the one that gets down on one knee or if you’re the one being presented with a ring and a commitment. Getting engaged is a big deal, there’s a lot of thought (or at least there should be) that goes into it, not just with making the proposal perfect, but the whole fact that it’s a huge life decision. It’s not one that should be taken lightly.
Another aspect that shouldn’t be taken lightly is that of the engagement ring. I mean ideally you’re going to get to wear this ring for the rest of your life. You want to be able to look down at your hand and get the warm and fuzzies every time you see it. You want to be able to proudly show it off. Maybe you even want to be able to pass it down for generations to come. It’s amazing how something so small can hold so much meaning and symbolize so much.
Let’s be honest, when you really think about it the quest for finding the right ring is daunting. That’s why it’s important that if you and your guy are talking about getting married one day that you drop hints (or maybe even just lay it on blunt if need be) as to what you want this ring to look like. Long gone are the days of simple settings that everyone had. Now days there the options for rings are truly endless. A simple solitaire plays it safe and if you get something super trendy or unique of what you’re into in this moment might not be something you want to look at 20 years from now. It’s better to find something in the middle. Something that fits who you are, but is also timeless.
There are several different engagement ring trends that are hot this year, but we’ve looked through them all and have heard what all the experts have had to say about all of them. From this we’ve picked a few of our favorite 2015 engagement ring trends that we think are gorgeous, trendy, yet timeless.
Double Halo Setting
The halo setting is nothing new, it’s been a much sought after style for years. However, the new take on an old trend is adding a second halo, which also adds double the sparkle!
East to West Settings
The East to West setting takes a diamond in an oval, marquise, or emerald cut and turns it horizontally. This gives the ring an unique look as well as makes the diamond appear bigger.
There’s a very good reason by this gold with a pinkish tone is making a comeback on the engagement scene! This gold is very feminine and it also flatters most skin tones.
The bands of rings have certainly seen an update as well in recent years. Ring designers have added a new twist – literally – to bands to take eternity bands to a deeper meaning. Of course, this touch also adds a more dazzling effect.
