The award for the most popular engagement ring style for 2018 goes to….drum roll please…the ART DECO inspired ring!
According to Pinterest (and let’s face it, they’d know) the modern bride-to-be is turning away from the traditional, single stone diamond ring and looking for something a little more unusual.
Pinterest is, of course, the most popular wedding planning search engine. Forget Google, if you want to see what’s new in the world of weddings, or soak up some #weddinginspo for your own, then Pinterest is the place to start.
Searches on Pinterest for art deco engagement rings went up by an enormous 173%, while searches for rings with an oval stone went up by 125%, year on year.
Finally, searches for rings with coloured stones saw an impressive lift too, a trend we have seen ourselves indeed. Coloured gems of course needn’t mean fancy coloured diamonds, something we covered in our post about choosing a non-traditional engagement ring.
Chris is rather a fan of the Art Deco style and has already created many beautiful rings, both engagement rings and cocktail rings, in this style. They work beautifully with coloured gemstones and the emerald cut stones really stand out, making your ring absolutely one on its own.
