    This diamond and pink sapphire engagement ring offers a romantic take on the gemstone trend.

    One of the hottest engagement ring trends for 2019 is colored gemstones. There’s been a big increase in rings featuring gemstones, whether they’re center stage or adding a pop of color as accents to a center diamond.

    Among the most popular gemstones for engagement rings are blue and pink sapphires, though gemstones in every color of the rainbow have been rising in popularity. Whichever hue you choose, incorporating gemstones is a great way to add personality and vibrance to your engagement ring.

    Pear Cut Diamonds

    Pear cut diamonds, also known as teardrop diamonds, are the latest unique diamond shape to get their time in the spotlight. This sophisticated cut looks utterly elegant on the hand, as its elongated shape has a slimming effect on the fingers. The pear shaped diamond has been particularly popular when paired with a halo setting, which adds a vintage drama to its distinctive shape.

    Unique Bands


    This engagement ring features a unique twisting diamond and 18k white gold band.

    Another 2019 engagement ring trend is unique bands. More and more brides-to-be are shying away from traditional bands and are choosing to express themselves with something more unexpected.

    There are many kinds of unique bands trending for 2019, though engagement rings with twisting bands have been among the most popular.

    Halo Settings

    While the halo style engagement ring is certainly not a new trend, it’s still going strong. However, while in years past there was one kind of halo setting that dominated the scene (the perfectly round circle of pave diamonds), in 2019 there will be more variety. We’re seeing halos on unique diamond shapes, like oval or emerald diamonds, as well as halos that have unique shapes of their own. Particularly popular are vintage-style halo settings that often give their engagement rings a floral effect.

  • Why Kate Middleton’s Engagement Ring Is Up For Debate


    Kate Middleton’s engagement ring is a gorgeous sapphire and diamond ring that once belonged to Prince Charles’ late mother, Princess Diana. This ring is one of the most iconic engagement rings of all time. This eye-catching ring started a sapphire engagement ring craze, which had a second wave when it was announced that Kate would also be wearing the ring.

    While this ring has been widely acclaimed by the public, it was recently revealed that the ring was initially very controversial within the royal family. It seems that many royals were apparently quite upset due to the ring’s breaking of tradition.

    A major issue the royal family took with this engagement ring was that it was not only not unique to Princess Diana, it was not unique at all. While most royals have custom engagement rings, Princess Diana actually selected her ring from a catalogue. So, while the 12 carat Cerylon sapphire, white gold, and white diamond engagement ring had quite a unique design, there were actually many made. And any non-royal could buy it themselves from the crown jeweler Garrard’s catalogue (provided they could afford its hefty $60,000 price tag).

    Additionally, it was also a break in tradition for Princess Diana to choose her own engagement ring at all, which was another hot point of debate among the royal family.

    Now, of course, this engagement ring is one of the most famous and celebrated of all time. The fact that it belonged to Princess Diana, a widely beloved public figure, has led to it now being estimated at a worth of $500,000.

    Kate Middleton has expressed her appreciation of the ring, and has stated that she finds it “very special” that her husband proposed with his mother’s ring.

    However, it’s been rumored that, without a pivotal decision by Prince Harry, Kate may have never gotten the legendary engagement ring. Supposedly, while Princess Diana gifted her jewelry collection to both of her sons, Prince Harry was the one who ended up with Princess Diana’s engagement ring. But it’s been said that when Harry knew that William was going to propose to Kate, he swapped his mother’s engagement ring for her Cartier watch so that William could use it to propose.

    The debate around Kate Middleton and Princess Diana’s engagement ring may have caused some ruffled feathers among the royal family originally, but it seems that they’ve grown more accepting of it today. Now, the engagement ring, as worn by Kate, is generally regarded as a touching tribute to one of the royal family’s most beloved figures.

  • Let’s Talk About Emily Ratajkowski’s Engagement Ring

    Let's start off by saying Emily Ratajkowski's engagement ring is one she designed herself. The stunning model and actress revealed her absolutely incredible engagement ring on social media not so long ago, and had us all gushing!

    emily ratajkowski engagement ring

    Ratajkowski’s custom engagement ring features two incredible (and quite sizable) white diamonds on a white and yellow gold setting. These massive diamonds create a unique look, as one is a princess cut while the other is pear shaped. The newly married model told Vogue that she wanted the diamonds to be the star of this custom piece, which is why she went for a simple setting.

    The setting may be simple, but it has a unique element that allows its featured diamonds to pop: its two-toned design. While the band of this piece is yellow gold, the prong settings for each diamond are crafted in white gold. The white gold prongs compliment the beauty of these incredible white diamonds, while the yellow gold band creates a warm, contrasting background.

    Ratajkowski debuted her engagement ring a while after her secret marriage to Sebastian Bear-McClard, which was a simple City Hall affair. She previously showed off her wide yellow gold wedding band in her Instagram announcement of her marriage, which displayed the couple’s matching styles. She later shared the incredibly romantic story of their engagement rings on an appearance on The Tonight Show.

    It turns out that Sebastian Bear-McClard didn’t have an engagement ring ready when he popped the question to Ratajkowski. Instead, he made a makeshift ring out of paper clip. Then the couple bought gold to make their wedding rings and hammered them themselves at a midtown jewelry store. Ratajkowski said about the rings, “They were supposed to be temporary rings, but now I’m very attached and I really don’t want to get rid of it. I just feel like making it yourself, could it be more personal?”

    We couldn’t agree more. There’s nothing more personal (or romantic) than custom wedding and engagement rings. Making custom engagement and wedding rings happens to be a speciality of ours at Bridal Rings. We love collaborating with our customers to help them create the rings of their dreams.

    Ratajkowski also told Vogue that, when she designed her engagement ring, it took more than 50 sketches to reach the design they finally decided on. Looking at her dazzling one-of-a-kind engagement ring, we’d say all the revisions were more than worth it.

    Are you considering creating a custom engagement ring? It’s much easier and quicker than you might think. Reach out to Bridal Rings, specialists at creating custom engagement rings, and we’ll help guide you through every step of the process.

  • Where to Buy High Quality Engagement Rings in Los Angeles

    When it comes to buying an engagement ring in a major city like Los Angeles, there are many places to shop. However, just as with engagement rings, not all jewelers are created equal. When searching for the best place to buy your engagement ring, there are some things to keep in mind, like the reputation of the jeweler and what services will come with the ring. To help you make a great choice when searching for an engagement ring jeweler, we’ve put together this list of things to look out for during the buying process.

    Prioritize Quality and Certification

    Screen Shot 2018-07-23 at 5.02.13 PM

    A dazzling double halo Amavida engagement ring from Bridal Rings Co.

    One of the most important things to look for when buying an engagement ring is high quality, certified materials. This, of course, includes the center stone you’ll be buying. Most people choose a white diamond for their engagement ring, but colorful gemstones are also becoming popular choices. But for both diamonds and gemstones, you’ll want to make sure that your stone comes with proper certification. You should never buy a stone that doesn’t come with official certification from an accredited institution, such as the GIA (Gemological Institute of America). At Bridal Rings, all of our gemstones come with official certification, so our customers can feel comfortable knowing the exact specifications of the gemstones they select.

    Additionally, the quality of your stone is important. Diamonds are graded according to the 4Cs: carat, color, clarity, and cut. Which qualities are most important to you will depend on your personal tastes. One thing that’s important to know when choosing a jeweler is that they should help you understand these qualities and guide you to a stone that you will love. Which brings us to our next point: you should expect nothing less than excellent service from your jeweler.

    Expect Excellent Service

    Screen Shot 2018-07-23 at 5.03.41 PM

    Buying fine jewelry, such as an engagement ring, is unlike any other buying experience. And for many people, their engagement ring is the first major fine jewelry purchase they’ll make. Buying fine jewelry comes with many considerations, like how durable the materials of the ring are, what the exact quality of the ring is, and what styles are available. Your jeweler should guide you through the buying process and help you easily understand your options, as well as help you find styles you like.

    At Bridal Rings, excellent customer service is our top priority. We take great care to make sure each of our customers has the best possible shopping experience. Each of our staff members is a trusted diamond expert who strives to give our customers a concierge experience. We fully guide our customers through the buying process, helping them with everything from selecting their ring to teaching them how to care for it. Additionally, we also offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee, free lifetime cleaning and maintenance on all of our products, and even include a complimentary insurance appraisal for all of our customers.

    Know Your Jeweler’s History and Reputation

    Another important thing to consider is a jeweler’s history and reputation. It’s crucial to buy from a reputable dealer who has experience in the business and a trusted reputation. If you buy from an unknown dealer, there are many variables that could end up being disastrous. You could end up with a poor quality ring or be unable to get help with any problems you may have with a bad ring, which is simply something you don’t want to risk with something as important as an engagement ring.

    At Bridal Rings, our team of expert jewelers are experienced and responsive. We are a family owned company that has been in business for more than 35 years. Located in the world famous LA Jewelry District, we’ve been providing impeccably crafted jewelry and excellent service to our customers for decades. Additionally, Bridal Rings is also proud of our excellent reputation on Yelp, where we have a five star rating and hundreds of positive reviews.

    Buy From Somewhere With a Great Selection

    When shopping for an engagement ring, it’s also important to buy from somewhere with a great selection. There are many different kinds of engagement rings, so it’s important to buy from somewhere with good variety so you can find something that is not only high quality, but also suits your tastes. At Bridal Rings, we’re proud to carry a wide selection of engagement rings from excellent brands, which span an array of styles. We have rings from excellent companies such as Coronet, Gabriel & Co, Artcarved, and more. Additionally, since we also handcraft jewelry in house, we’re able to create custom rings for our customers.

    Get the Best Price

    Lastly, let’s talk about getting a great price for your engagement ring. When it comes to higher priced items like fine jewelry, it’s always a good idea to consider buying from a smaller, family owned jeweler. This is because jewelry from “big name” jewelers often comes with a major mark up. Instead of merely paying for the quality and craftsmanship of a ring, you’re also paying a huge mark up for the name brand of the ring.

    Additionally, in Los Angeles there are some excellent options in the LA jewelry district where, instead of paying for a marked up ring, you can get a wholesale price. At Bridal Rings, we save our customers money by buying our materials wholesale. We directly import materials, saving our customers on middle men costs, to ensure that we can offer excellent prices that are 30% to 70% below retail.

  • Tips For Buying an Emerald Cut Engagement Ring

    Screen Shot 2018-07-09 at 4.46.34 PM

    Emerald cut engagement rings have a classic glamour. This flashy step cut diamond shape has long been a favorite of glamorous celebrities, from old Hollywood stars like Elizabeth Taylor to modern day icons like Beyonce. If you’re thinking of selecting this gorgeous diamond shape for your own engagement ring, keep in mind that buying an emerald diamond requires some special considerations. To help you make the best pick, check out our tips for buying an emerald cut engagement ring.

    Understanding the Emerald Cut

    The first thing to know before buying an emerald cut diamond is what exactly qualifies as an emerald cut. Emerald cut diamonds have a distinctive look. From the top, they look like a rectangle with cut corners and they feature unique step facets. Step facets are different from the more common “brilliant” style cut, which is what most round diamonds are cut with. Instead of having many varying shaped small facets, step cut shapes like the emerald have larger, rectangular facets that are arranged in parallel lines. These lines reflect and refract light in a “flashy” way, in contrast to the more shimmery effect of a brilliant cut. They also offer a more clear, pure view of the diamond itself, allowing the true beauty of the diamond to shine through.

    The emerald cut is not to be confused with radiant and asscher cuts. Radiant cut diamonds have the same overall shape as an emerald cut (a rectangle with cut corners) but they have smaller facets designed to create sparkle, rather than the flashy step cuts of the emerald diamond. Asscher cuts also have a similar shape to emerald cut diamonds, a square shape with cut corners. Asscher cuts have step cuts like the emerald cut but they also feature a distinctive “X” pattern on the top of the diamond that creates very different light patterns.

    What To Look For When Buying an Emerald Diamond

    Screen Shot 2018-07-09 at 4.22.03 PM

    Now that you know the definition of an emerald cut diamond, let’s talk about what you should look for when buying one. Like all other diamonds, looking at an emerald cut diamond’s 4Cs (clarity, cut, color, and carat) is important. But, due to the unique step cut of the emerald diamond, certain aspects of the 4Cs are more important when considering how they reflect on an emerald diamond’s beauty.

    Emerald Cut Diamond Clarity

    Clarity is incredibly important for emerald cut diamonds. While lower clarity can often be concealed by shimmering brilliant cuts, the step cut of an emerald diamond shows imperfections more easily. That makes it important to buy emerald diamonds with high clarity ratings. We’d recommend choosing emerald cuts with VVS1 clarity ratings or higher. The VVS1 rating means a diamonds inclusions (imperfections inside the diamond) cannot be seen by the naked eye. So, your emerald cut diamond will look perfectly clear as long as you choose a VVS1 diamond or better.

    Emerald Cut Diamond Cut

    The cut grading is a measurement of how well a diamond was cut. Something unique about the emerald cut is that it actually does not receive a cut grade when it is evaluated and certified. Instead, they are assigned polish and symmetry grades. So, when considering how well an emerald diamond was cut, know that excellent polish and symmetry grades mean that the diamond has better sparkle.

    Emerald Cut Diamond Color

    Color is one area where evaluating an emerald cut diamond is the same as with any other diamond. Like all white diamond shapes, the color grade of an emerald diamond is a measurement of how little color it has, with D colored diamonds being the most colorless. You don’t have to choose a D (or even an E or F) grade diamond to get a beautiful gemstone, however. How much or how little color you find beautiful is really a matter of personal preference, so go with what looks best to you when considering emerald cut diamond color.

    Emerald Cut Diamond Carat

    Diamond carat is a measurement of its weight. Carat is not a measurement of quality, it’s more a way to help you understand the size of the diamond you’re getting. Additionally the higher the carat, the more expensive the diamond will be. When shopping for an emerald cut diamond, consider your budget and quality desires, then see which carat weights would be best for you.

    Luckily, emerald cut diamonds look larger per carat than round diamonds, due to the large surface area on the top of the shape. So, you will be able to get a larger-looking diamond for the same carat when compared to round diamonds.

    Special Emerald Cut Consideration: Proportions

    With emerald cut diamonds, the 4Cs are an important way of determining quality. But there’s another factor to consider when it comes to a diamonds quality and style: an emerald cut diamond’s proportions. The ratio of an emerald diamond’s length, width, and depth affects both how it looks and how well it reflects light. Ratios between 1.45 and 1.55 are usually considered ideal, but which ratio you prefer is really up to you. Higher ratios create longer, slimmer diamonds, while shorter ratios create more square cuts. Take the proportion of the emerald cut diamond into consideration when shopping and decide which look you prefer.

    Emerald Cut Diamond Settings

    Screen Shot 2018-07-09 at 4.23.38 PM

    Emerald cut diamonds can be put in a variety of engagement ring settings. The one you should choose depends on your personal style. Solitaire and halo settings tend to be the most popular choices, as they let the beauty of the emerald cut shine. Vintage style settings are also popular pairings, giving the emerald diamond a classic and romantic look.

    How To Pick Your Emerald Diamond Engagement Ring

    When deciding which emerald cut diamond is right for you, it’s really a matter of personal preference. All emerald cut diamonds have a sophisticated, glamorous look. When choosing yours, simply consider which factors are most important to you, then choose the diamond you love most.

  • What does your Bridal Ring say about you?!

    Engagement and bridal rings come in all shapes and sizes. Ever wonder what your ring might be saying about who you are as a person? An engagement ring can suggest a lot about your sense in fashion and wedding style. Here’s a glimpse of what your ring might be indicating about you.

    Diamond Cut

    Round Cut


    The cut of a diamond refers to the center stone’s shape. The round shape is the most popular of cuts. With this cut ring, you’re probably leaning toward a more traditional wedding (you know, the one you’ve been dreaming about ever since you were a little girl). You’re also not much of a trend setter, but more of a vintage kind of gal.

    Emerald Cut


    The emerald cut ring suggests you have a simplistic, yet elegant style. You take more of a minimal approach and have an interest in things that will outlast trends.

    Ring Setting

    Halo Setting


    The setting of a ring refers to how the center stone is positioned or held together. The halo is described as a very feminine setting, so we’re picturing a total girly-girl. And diamond are a girl’s best friend (how fitting)!

    Three-stone Setting


    The more the merrier! With a three-stone ring, you’re truly a one-of-a-kind woman and a fan of eccentricity. You don’t mind waiting or looking for that special or unique item. You also appreciate the complexity behind things.

    Metal Type

    Rose Gold


    The metal portion of a ring refers to the material makeup of the band. A rose gold band usually suggests you gravitate toward warmer tones. The pinkish hue of this color indicates that you’re a romantic.

    Yellow Gold


    Yellow gold is another warm tone, but with reining popularity. One who goes with a yellow gold ring can typically be described as fashionable and one who goes for more of a classic style.




    Colored diamond rings are known for making bold statements. Gemstone rings, however, shows that you’re one with an appreciation of history and tradition. There’s generally a notable amount of meaning attached to a gemstone ring. Therefore, you’re more than likely very intuitive, as well.

    Colored Diamond


    A colored engagement ring means you’re definitely not a fan of keeping things conventional. You don’t mind being the center of attention and you thrive off your creative side and independence. We’re picturing an exotic destination wedding in your near future.
