Shopping for an Engagement Ring? Take a Look at These Three Trends

an engagement ring setThe months of June and December may still be far away, but it’s never too early to shop for an engagement ring for your significant other. If you’re shopping around for custom engagement rings in Salt Lake City, you’re in luck because the city boasts of trusted and renowned jewelers like AAA Jewelers.

Here are some trends that you may want to consider for the next most important item that will belong to your beloved’s jewelry collection:

Double band rings

Double band rings with criss-cross, halo or rope-shaped bands will be the star of the show this 2018. Some double band ring designs tend to keep it simple with just a diamond, sapphire or opal in the middle while others are difficult to ignore, thanks to an extravagant diamond at the center embellished with smaller stones. Most of the double band rings that you will see in this tradition will have either an heirloom feel or a minimalist and modern feel to them.

The “Meghan Markle” effect

Rings with the main stone sandwiched by two smaller diamonds will surely sell like hotcakes in coming months, thanks to Meghan Markle’s sparkler. The custom engagement ring was designed by Prince Harry himself and included diamonds from Princess Diana’s collection. The price of rings inspired by Markle’s will range between $50,000 and $1 million.

Rose gold and platinum

Meghan Markle may have preferred a light yellow gold ring, but rose gold and platinum gold rings will be in vogue this year—just because. Specifically, rings that combine the two colors, with the platinum used for the setting, will see a surge in sales. Pure rose gold rings, however, seem to remain popular and are featured endlessly on several diamond ring merchants’ websites.

While these are suggestions for your engagement ring, remember to go with your heart and buy a ring that speaks to you and your partner.
