6 Engagement Ring Trends to Watch For in 2018
As this year's holiday engagement season comes to an end, our Diamond Concierge team has been busy putting together their list of predictions for engagement ring trends to watch for in 2018. Read on to get inspired for your perfect bespoke engagement ring.
1. Fancy Colored Diamonds
Trend setter celebs like Heidi Klum & Carrie Underwood have popularized colored diamond center stones. However, colored diamonds mined from the earth are extremely rare and prohibitively expensive. While lab grown fancy colored diamonds are still very rare (and difficult to produce!), choosing a manmade diamond can offer an opportunity for exceptional savings on a rainbow of fancy colored diamonds for your engagement ring including pink, yellow and blue diamonds. From accents like halos, to fancy colored center stones, our team is betting this trend stays hot in 2018.
2. Oval Diamonds
2017 saw the oval cut become Ada's most requested fancy diamond shape, and those requests show no signs of slowing down as the year comes to a close. As the world's leading purveyor of lab grown diamonds, Ada has unique access to, and first right of refusal on the best stones coming from growers the world over-meaning our lab grown oval diamonds are truly the best of the best. This stunning shape lends itself well to a variety of setting styles, from classic solitaires to delicate pave band settings, that show off the elegance and sparkle of our lab grown ovals.
3. Three Stone Rings
Prince Harry & Meghan Markle's engagement is big news, no matter what corner of the world you live in! Meghan's elegant and beautiful three stone engagement ring is guaranteed to be a trend setting choice for brides to be in 2018. Get inspired by three stone lab grown engagement ring designs from Ada's Bridal Collection, and then customize a ring you'll love inspired by royal romance.
4. Rose Gold Settings
A gorgeous and feminine option, our Diamond Concierge team bets fashion forward rose gold engagement rings are here to stay for 2018. Pair this spectacular metal with a classic colorless diamond, or choose a fancy colored center stone for a truly one-of-a-kind pairing.
5. Pave Bands
Adding some sparkle to a stunning center stone with a pave or micro pave lab diamond band on your engagement ring has been a favorite choice for engagement rings in 2017, and our team predicts ring styles with uniquely shaped diamond bands, like this eye catching Oval Twist Setting, will take over in 2018.
6. Custom Rings
Your love is one of a kind: your ring should be too! While, today's brides may love the look and feel of a timeless solitaire, they also want to express their unique taste and style. From trendy east-west settings to fancy colored or shaped lab grown diamonds, brides to be in 2018 want an engagement ring that's as original as they are.
