5 ENGAGEMENT RING TRENDS 2018

If there’s anyone who can predict engagement ring trends, it’s an engagement ring company like JamesAllen.com! We’ve asked our diamond ring experts to look into their crystal balls and tell us what they expect to see a lot of in 2018.

1. Everything’s coming up rose gold

Stop and smell the rose gold engagement rings, which you’ll see a lot of in 2018! This romantic metal type has been a favorite among fashionistas like Lauren Conrad for several years already, and we don’t see it going out of style any time soon. The pinkish metal has a romantic, timeless feel to it and gives off elegant, vintage vibes.

2. Hello! Is it halos you’re looking for?

Why yes, it is! There is no doubt that 2018 engagement ring trends will include halo engagement rings. The immense shine they exude is irresistible to any sparkle lover (which basically means… to anyone). A diamond is great. But tons MORE diamonds surrounding that larger diamond, forming an illusion of one even LARGER diamond? Well, that’s just heavenly.

3. Pretty in pear

Delicious as a fruit or a diamond shape, pear is one cut that is beloved by women the world over. Maybe it’s the fact that it resembles a tear drop that draws us to it, makes us want to hug it, and dare I say caress it (though that’d be a bit weird), just as we would be drawn to a crying baby. Or maybe it’s the fact that the glamorous pear shape elongates our finger and makes us look extra refined. Whatever it is, pear shaped diamonds are here to stay in 2018! Popular social media influencers couldn’t agree with us more: YouTube star Tanya Barr upgraded her ring to a pear shaped stunner, and Instagrammer Amrezy recently got engaged with a pear shaped beauty.

4. Classy cushion cut

The cushion cut was popular in old-time Hollywood, and it’s back with a dazzling vengeance. Somewhere in between a round and princess, cushion cut diamonds combine the classic simplicity of a round cut diamond and the traditional feel of a princess shaped diamond. Cushion cuts will shine on, on many a bride, in 2018.

5. Elegant emerald cut

Last but not least, let’s look to the stars to find the latest trend. Many of our favorite or at least most infamous celebrities, from Kim Kardashian to Beyoncé don amazing emerald cut diamond engagement rings. Oval shaped diamonds had been trending in recent years, but emerald is now the most adored among the glitz and glam that is Hollywood.
