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

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.
