Each year we look forward to seeing which styles and trends are on top, and 2018 is shaping up to be a great year! Minimalist styles, with the focus on a center stone, will definitely continue to be big. Whether it's oval, cushion, or round, we are loving simple settings with amazing stones. Color will also play a major role in both metal and stone choice. We're seeing a lot of rose gold and sapphires in the future! Looking for the perfect ring? Read on to learn about our top predictions for 2018 engagement ring trends!
Minimalist rings topped the charts in 2017. We loved seeing so many beautiful solitaires with both plain and diamond bands, and also how people are tweaking this classic look with a few unique twists. While round cut diamonds were overwhelmingly the number one choice for shape, we did start to see some fancy shape diamonds making a splash like cushion, oval and pear. Rose gold seems to be standing strong as the alternative metal of choice even though platinum and white gold are still holding their number one spot. Halos also look like they’re here to stay. We particularly loved a cushion halo paired with a round stone.
Thank you to all our brides and grooms for sharing your beautiful rings and proposal stories! Here are a few of our favorites from 2017!
Looking for the perfect big, sparkly diamond for your partner, but don't think it's in your budget? The Bouquet Ring from Memoire has you covered. Each ring features diamonds uniquely set to appear three times larger than the combined carat weight! Yes, you read that correctly. Nine invisibly set diamonds encircle a center diamond to perfectly recreate the impact of a solitaire. This gives you the look of a large stone, but at only a fraction of the price.
Certifications don't paint the full picture. Seeing and making a diamond comparison in person is the only way to know what a diamond truly looks like.
