Top 5 Engagement Ring Trends of 2018: A Look Back

Another year coming to an end, but engagement ring fashion is always a trending topic! We put together a comprehensive list of the most popular ring features that our clients can’t seem to get enough of!

5. Petite 3-stone Rings

Everyone loves the finger coverage of a 3-stone ring, and at LB we make them for every price point! Our clients have loved the delicate look of 3-stone options that showcase stunning matched quality diamonds without breaking the bank!

4. Distinctive Band Styles

Solitaire and micropave are no longer your only option: We have seen a surge in clients who prefer a more unique twist (sometimes literally!) for their engagement ring, which are super fun to stack with assorted wedding bands!

3. Radiant Cut Diamonds

2018 was truly the year of the radiant cut diamond: with maximum brilliance and amazing face-up spread, radiant cuts have gone from a lesser known shape to one of the most frequently inquired-about options for center stones!

Our Faves:

2. Pear Cut Diamonds

Whether you love its soft, asymmetrical cut or large surface area, pear diamonds are in more demand now than ever! Contrary to the oval, the pear diamond’s versatile shape allows the wearer to change the look every day by wearing the point up or down. Pears looks amazing in any setting, from the seamless halo to the simple solitaire – and we’ve got the rings to prove it!

Our faves:

1. Yellow Gold Settings

For years we have seen white gold and platinum take over the engagement ring world, but yellow gold is back – and here to stay! No longer is yellow gold seen as outdated or matronly; our clients love the flattering warm color of yellow gold against most skin tones, and the contrast of a beautiful white diamond that pops against it! Frequently combined with white gold prongs to blend seamlessly into the center stone, yellow gold is 2018’s most popular ring trend. Talk about a comeback!!
