Searching for the perfect engagement ring or wedding band? While you want to choose an engagement ring and wedding band that represents your love and stands the test of time, it’s also a good idea to look at styles that are trending for inspiration. Read on to learn more.

Engagement Ring Trends

Pear and Oval Diamonds

With so many celebrity engagements, it’s expected that couples will be looking towards the massive diamonds for inspiration. Pear and oval shaped diamonds are the new trends with celebrity engagements, as Ariana Grande, Cardi B, Hailey Baldwin and Paris Hilton show off their rings ranging from $100,000 to $2 million. Of course, couples can find pear and oval shaped diamonds for a more affordable price! In fact, these shapes are less expensive than round shaped diamonds, but stand out more and look larger within the same carat range.

Mixing Metals

The trend of mixing metals has made its way through the home decor industry and is now taking over modern engagement rings. Two-tone rings are made of a combination of yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, and platinum in a woven, braided, or stacked style to give a truly unique look. A bonus to mixing metals in the engagement ring is that couples have more options to choose from for their wedding bands.

Wedding Band Trends

Silicone Rings

While traditional wedding rings are made of metal bands, rubber bands are becoming increasingly popular with modern couples. The silicone material is perfect for couples with active lifestyles and is approved to wear in more professions than metal rings. The material is flexible durable, hypoallergenic and prevents finger injuries. If you have an active lifestyle or a job that requires you to use your hands all day, a silicone wedding ring is a great choice!

Colorful Stones

Instead of a wedding band with a single white diamond, a lot of couples are choosing wedding bands with multiple colorful stones. Couples have a choice at a wide variety of colorful stones, including ruby, sapphire, emerald, and more. A brightly colored wedding band is perfect for the couple who wants to match their ring to their fun personality.
