Custom Designed Engagement Ring Process
The process of translating your vision into a stunning, one-of-a-kind engagement ring is faster and easier than ever before. That’s because we’ve dedicated a private section of our sales floor to an exciting Design Suite created specifically for customers who want us to design an original work of wearable art. Here is where we offer you a private consultation and hear your ideas. We will then create a Computer-Aided Design (CAD) rendering of your piece while you watch. Adjustments are simple to make at this stage, so don’t be afraid to speak up. From beginning to completion, custom designed jewelry usually takes from six to eight weeks. Check out our custom design process.
Colored Gemstone Engagement Rings
Make a colorful statement.
If you haven’t noticed, colored gemstones in engagement rings have made a comeback. Some say the trend re-emerged with Princess Diana and her blue sapphire engagement ring. Kate Middleton continued that tradition. Precious gemstones like sapphires, rubies and emeralds express individuality, are valuable and are a departure from the ordinary. Many fashion-savvy brides are opting for fancy colored diamonds ranging from white and the soft browns of champagne to vivid yellows, pinks and many other hues—all of which are rare and beautiful. There are also stunning sapphires, most known for their vivid blues, but available in an array of colors. In any case, making your statement in a colored gemstone could be an exciting alternative to a traditional white diamond.
Engagement rings come in all sizes, shapes and settings. But most importantly, you should always choose an engagement ring that speaks to you, whether or not it’s on-trend. As we know, trends do come and go over the years. Today, these following styles and diamond shapes appear to be making a resurgence.
Oval Cut Diamonds
We love round diamonds and they are by far the most brilliant. But oval diamonds are back in style and we love that they are. They have a flattering shape and can be worn both vertically and horizontally for a completely different look. They also have a vintage vibe, especially when paired with a simple band.
Gold is by far the most popular precious metal in the US, but there’s something about rose gold that makes for a perfect setting. We especially love it when it’s mixed with yellow or white gold for a very unique look. It’s been trending for a few years now and is showing no signs of losing ground. Feminine and flattering, rose gold is romantic and becoming more common in many of our engagement ring lines.
We’ve been talking about it for a few years, ever since the Princess of Wales flashed her blue sapphire engagement ring! If you’re looking for a pop of color, you’ll be happy to hear that engagement rings featuring colored gemstones are totally in vogue. From subtle to striking, colored gemstones are sure to be a standout choice to switch up a classic engagement ring.
Very big in the 1970s and back on the scene, pear-shaped diamonds and other gemstones in mixed metals scream modern and fashion-forward, especially when paired with rose gold or stunning halo settings.
Think one band won’t do? Then consider the newest trend: Stackable wedding bands. Look for these bands to complement nicely with “tiara” style bands that form half-halos around center stones. Hint: adding a different stack every year also makes this trend the perfect anniversary gift!
Ever since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement, this trend has seen a resurgence in popularity. Not new, (remember diamonds for your past, present and future?) you can choose three similar size diamonds, or one larger diamond with two-smaller diamonds flanking each side. After all, why have one diamond when you can have three?
A split shank band looks stunning on any finger. What is it? It’s two bands running parallel to each other with a gemstone separating them. This style is both dramatic and classic. Your center diamond will look like it’s suspended while it sparkles.
Classic and will most likely be on-trend for quite some time, a simple band featuring a beautiful round diamond is for the bride-to-be who wants a style that’s pretty and not over the top.
