We take a look at the hottest engagement ring trends for 2016.
1.THE MARQUISE MOMENT
Pear Shapes were huge in 2015 but we predict 2016 to be a Marquise moment in time! And not just in a traditional setting either. We’re increasingly seeing this beautiful shape set at various angles to make a truly modern engagement ring style.

2. I CAN SEE YOUR HALO HALO HA-LO-OH-OH
Halo’s have been a popular choice for a few years now and there’s good reason why this pretty style isn’t going anywhere fast! Perfect for upping the ante on a smaller stone, adding serious sparkle to a gem stone or just giving your diamonds that extra bit of magic!

3. BARELY SET
Solitaire’s are a classic choice but in 2016 we’re seeing mounts focus on showcasing the diamond more than ever! Open settings let in maximum light and really allow the stone to stand out!

Architects will appreciate the engineering required to suspend these diamonds in their clever mounts. Playful shapes will appeal to a contemporary individual Bride.

Romantic rose gold has soared in popularity in recent years and this year will see it continue it’s journey in the charts! Particularly beautiful when combined with coloured stones, there’s a warm pretty charm to this metal.

6. ORNATE FANCY
The vintage trend has been dominant in wedding themes for the past few years but this year we see a new angle emerging. Fancy filigree bands and ornate stylings are emerging as the new artisan choice. Beautifully embellished, these rings are works of art to be enjoyed and admired.

Art Deco vibes rule with the baguette cut diamond. The long narrow stones give a glamourous, vintage feel to more modern designs are work perfectly as accent stones.

Creativity is key and vibrant personalities seek out colour! Blue Sapphires, Emeralds, Rubies are joined by Pink Sapphires, Morganiet, Canary Diamonds and Peridots - expect to see a rainbow!
9. THE FAIRYTALE PRINCESS
The Princess Square cut is a classical choice and one we’ll continue to see in various combinations! Such a versatile and stunning choice.
10. SHAPE SURPRISE
Mini, curvy, multi, strands, anything goes with trend number 10. Playful and alternative, the complete opposite to ‘Barely Set’, expect exciting creations from adventurous Brides!

Which style suits you? I find it so hard to choose just one! I’ve got eight fingers and two thumbs so maybe I’ll just have to choose one style for each?! Too much? ;-)
