With wedding season upon us and love in the air, we’ve been overflowing with engagement ring orders. Here are the Top 5 Engagement Ring Styles we’ve noticed this year:

  1. The Round Solitaire Ring

Diamond Solitaires are the classic engagement ring choice and are available in a variety of cuts, each with its own special charm. The most popular choice is the round brilliant-cut. The round brilliant-cut diamond was the first diamond cut, developed in around 1900. These single-stone rings are timeless and will never go out of style. Ashton Kutcher just proposed to Mila Kunis with a huge solitaire ring and Anne Hathaway also rocks this eternal style.

  1. The Split Shank Ring

Split Shank Engagement Rings are the embodiment of elegance. The classic look features a band that separates into two strands as it reaches the crown, further accenting the center stone. Donned by Blake Lively, Beyoncé and Gwyneth Paltrow, the Split Shank ring is a style that is recently regaining popularity. It’s commonly found with smaller diamonds on each individual “shank” (where the band splits) adding a beautiful and brilliant touch to any ring.

  1. The Cushion-Cut Ring

The 15 Carat Cushion-cut ring (valued at around 3 million dollars) that Kanye West gave to Kim Kardashian was the most talked about ring of the year. Cushion-cut diamonds are a mix between the Princess and Oval cut, coming in either a rectangular or square shape. In simple terms, it is a diamond with rounded corners.  Also referred to as “pillow-cut” diamonds, they have softer corners with larger facets, allowing the diamond to appear larger. Jennifer Aniston also sports this elegant cut.

  1. The Vintage Estate Ring

The Estate Style ring radiates glamour and sophistication. Estate Rings have a vintage feel and this timeless style is often floral-themed with ornate openwork designs. They are perfect for engagement rings (John Krasinski proposed to Emily Blunt with a beautiful 3-Carat Vintage ring) or as a fashion statement as these rings are stylish and unique. 

  1. The Halo Ring

 The Halo Style Ring is emerging as the most sought after style of 2014. This style features a center stone with a “halo” of stones surrounding it. It’s bigger and bolder than the classic solitaire, with the surrounding diamonds enhancing the look of the center stone. It’s a popular trend of the moment and one of our best sellers with celebrities like Natalie Portman, Carrie Underwood and Jessica Alba fashioning the look.
