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.
