Engagement Ring Trends

If you never got around to buying an engagement ring, a combination band could be perfect for you. These are often bedazzled bands of gold or platinum studded with diamonds around the circumference. Since these rings have many smaller stones, they can often be a more economical choice than a separate engagement ring and wedding band. The Engagement Ring Trends is as follows:

Bezel diamond
This modern setting offers a low profile that is great for women who lead active lifestyles. The bezel not only protects the edges of the diamond but also helps give the impression of a bigger center stone.
An old-fashioned tradition—has become a newfangled trend. The inscriptions on the inside of rings can be simple, like the date of the wedding and initials of the beloveds, or more elaborate such as a line of poetry or lyrics from your favorite love song. Personalized engraving, especially done by hand has a lead time of one to four weeks, so plan ahead.
Colored diamonds
While most diamonds are shades of white, colored diamonds are a much rarer sort. They come in yellows, blues, pinks and the least common, red.
