SOLITAIRES WITH HIDDEN DETAILS
Simple solitaire engagement ring settings get an unexpected surprise from the side angle, with a hidden halo or crown that rests just under the center diamond and are not visible from the top. This style is perfect for someone who wants a classic look with a little “wow” factor. Whether the style has a single pavé diamond row around the basket or the entire underneath is covered with a crown of pavé diamonds, these engagement rings are a timeless choice.

SUPER THIN BANDS
Thin, dainty bands are increasingly sought after, offering a delicate look with high contrast in size to the center diamond for added drama. These petite settings are incredibly feminine, looking beautiful no matter what center diamond shape you choose. This minimalistic style looks lovely in plain metal or with small pavé diamonds.
There’s no doubt this trend is continuing strong from last year. Fancy shape center diamonds like oval, emerald, and pear-shaped diamonds continue to be a popular choice among brides-to-be, inspired by A-list celebrities from Hailey Beiber to Blake Lively. Their lengthy silhouette often appears slimming on the hand, instantly elongating your fingers. Choosing a fancy shape center diamond is a great way to let your personality shine through.
SIMPLE WITH A TWIST
For the one who wants something a little different that isn’t too trendy, choose an engagement ring that has an update on a classic style. Los Angeles-based designer, KATKIM, has perfected this style with floating diamonds that rest just above the band rather than centered over the band for an unexpected twist.
FANCY SHAPE ETERNITY BANDS
We’ve all seen the classic emerald diamond eternity rings–now say hello to pears! Pear-shaped diamonds alternate in orientation along the circumference of the band or lay in a single row horizontally for an incredibly elegant look. Another beautiful shape is oval diamond eternity rings, also a very sophisticated update on this style. We’re seeing more and more people wearing eternity bands as their engagement ring, and a fancy shape is a great way to spice it up a bit.
