3 Engagement Ring Trends That Will Stand Out In The Crowd
We’re on the slippery slope to engagement season and can’t wait to see what our 2019 brides will be wearing! As always, we’re here to help you get prepped and inspired. But, before we jump to dresses and floral arrangements, we wanted to give you some help picking out the most important part -- your engagement ring! Here’s three ring trends that we are loving for a holiday proposal.
Rose Gold Engagement RIngs
This trend first came about last year, but with rose gold dawning the fingers of some of our favorite celebs (hello, Lauren Conrad!), it’s only fitting that the trend is not only sticking, but gaining popularity. This luxurious blush metal has a timeless feel and gives off elegant, vintage vibes. So, it’s perfect for the classic bride (hello Paris Ring - first image) that wants a bit of pizzazz. Or, look to nature for inspiration with this Starburst style (second image) -- loving how floral it looks! Jewelry company Clean Origin offers endless rose gold options with rings that vary in style, setting and carat size
Stackable Engagement Rings
We love this fun way to add meaning to your jewelry! Whether it’s your engagement ring, wedding ring, anniversary gift or push present - ring stacks give you endless style options.
Want impact? This split band style already gives off the look of multiple rings. The bridal set plus one additional wedding band would create a swoon-worthy stack! The Square Halo with Split Band Bridal Set is a fave in the WS office!
Make sure you consider how your wedding band will fit with your engagement ring. Our tip? Look for both rings at the same time. Bridal sets offer an easy solution to perfectly fit rings, and a great start to your ring stack! And most importantly, talk with your jeweler! The diamond experts at Clean Origin can help you find a stackable ring that fits your ring goals. Chat with them about bridal set options, like the Cadenza Set pictured above.
Already have your engagement ring or wedding band but want to add something classic to your ‘stack’? The Luxe Prong Set Eternity Band is a simple, yet sophisticated ring and is available in white, yellow and rose gold. You can easily mix and match metal colors for more fun, too!
Lab Created Diamond Engagement Rings
Hands up if you’re not entirely sure what ‘Lab Grown’ diamonds are all about? Yep, us either. But, we were honestly so pleasantly surprised to learn more about them.
The only thing that makes a lab-created diamond different from a mined diamond is its origin. In fact, the FTC even modified their definition of “diamond” to include those grown in a lab! Using cutting edge technology, these diamonds are made in an environment that replicates the natural diamond growing process. The result? A diamond that is chemically, physically and optically the same as those grown beneath the earth’s surface. How cool is that?!
So, why buy a lab-grown diamonds over a mined diamond? Three big reasons.
More than anything else, lab-grown diamonds play an important role in helping to save our earth by reducing environmental impact. It takes much more energy to mine for a diamond than it does to grow one in a lab. This brings us to benefit number two...they’re more ethical. You’ve likely heard about the exploitation of miners and their families in the mined diamond industry. So, it’s wonderful to see companies like Clean Origin paving the way for a more ethical source of beautiful jewelry. Another positive outcome of eliminating the need for miners? The rings can be anywhere from 20-30% less expensive! Or...you can get a diamond that’s 20-30% larger for the same price! This means your budget for a ring with a 1.5ct mined diamond suddenly upgrades to a 2ct ring with a lab-grown diamond.
While the idea of lab-grown diamonds may be relatively new to many of us, the diamond experts behind Clean Origin have generations of experience and expertise within the jewelry industry. This means every purchase is backed by decades of knowledge and helpful insight that will benefit both the customer and the diamond recipient.
Diamonds play a very meaningful and significant role in our culture and are still an important symbol for those devoting a commitment of love to one another. Lab-grown diamonds -- like the ones from Clean Origin -- are a new, beautiful, conflict-free choice to bring your commitment of love to life. So, if you’re ready to start dropping hints to your loved one, consider bookmarking some of these stunning options from Clean Origin!
