10 Engagement Ring Trends for 2016

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!

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.

7. BAGUETTES

 

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.
