With the elongated look and clean cut, it's no wonder this shape has gained so much attention. It gives the illusion of a larger stone because of the shape. And after the engagement of Prince Harry and Megan Markle, oval shape has increased in popularity.
Just as we mentioned, after the engagement of Megan Markle and Prince Harry, we saw a jump in three stone engagement rings. They're clean, classic, and simple. Take this look and make the ring rose gold, now you have a mix of modern and classic.
Intricate Diamond Halo
Halo has been around for a few years and it's not slowing down anytime soon. However, young women and brides are looking for a halo different from the classic halo. This is where the intricate diamond halo or dropped diamond halo comes in. The dropped halo is just slightly under the center diamond and an intricate diamond halo adds a touch of vintage or design to the halo.
Pear Shape Diamond
Unlike the oval shape and it's more classic look, pear shape is a bit more trendy. This is a perfect stone for the fashion forward and modern woman or bride. A perfect look to add to her every day style.
The non-diamond engagements rings are also a huge trend in 2018. Young women and brides want to add meaning behind their engagement ring. Colored gemstones are a great fit because there are old myths and beliefs behind almost all the colored gemstones. Plus, it's a cost-effective choice compared to a diamond.
Emerald Shape Diamond
This is just beginning to trend and probably by the end of 2018 we'll see more asking for an emerald cut diamond with three stone rings. It's a rectangle shape diamond with brilliance.
