It is important to choose the right engagement ring for you. Not only are you going to be wearing it for the next 50 years or more, but it is a symbol of the love between you and your partner.
While the classic single solitaire always remains in style, there are lots of other options, so be sure to make the right choice and let your ring show off your personality and style
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, so brides who want diamonds might go for a more contemporary placement. Rather than being set in a halo formation, smaller diamonds can be set at the sides, ensuring you get that sparkle with every move of your hand. The traditional halo design is still popular, but couples are craving more distinctive halo designs with curves and multi-dimensional halos.
In 2016, coloured stones were on trend and that looks to continue into 2017, but with a twist. Multi-coloured rings, such as a sapphire halo ring in rose gold with emeralds set around the sides, or a gemstone ring with sapphires and aquamarines for a multi-tonal look, are frequently seen.
Rose or pink gold is becoming very popular, and this feminine shade will flatter every woman’s left hand. If it’s colour you’re after, there are lots of amazing options, including sapphires, emeralds, yellow and pink diamonds and rubies. There are even cognac and champagne diamonds!
Your next important choices after your engagement ring will be your wedding ring and wedding venue. There are hundreds of beautiful civil wedding and reception venues throughout the UK, for instance, The Speech House is a beautiful and luxurious Forest of Dean wedding hotel venue http://www.thespeechhouse.co.uk/weddings/.
Engagement rings come in all shapes, colours and sizes. Square bands are becoming popular because they are more comfortable to wear, the square band won’t pinch or constrict your fingers. Maybe you’re into more vintage designs or have an art-deco flair. Different shaped centre stones are an option, including pear-shaped or oval-shaped. Rings with double bands, mixed metal prongs or twisted bands are also seeing plenty of interest in 2017.
Remember that choosing your husband was your most difficult choice, so choosing your ring has got to be easier.
