Fancy shape (i.e. non-round) diamonds took 2018 by storm with a preference for pear, oval and cushion cuts. Celebs like Cardi B, Paris Hilton and Sophie Turner can be spotted with pear-shaped diamonds adorning their left hands, while Priyanka Chopra, Lea Michele and Karlie Kloss opted for cushion cuts. Hailey Baldwin’s oval-shaped stunner also made headlines, not only for its shape and size, but also for its beautifully delicate band.

Colored gemstones in lieu of a center diamond as the focal point for engagement rings are continuing to increase in popularity. We’ve seen this most recently with Lady Gaga’s feminine ring (either a pink diamond or pink sapphire) and Princess Eugenie of York’s engagement ring (Padparadscha sapphire). Gwyneth Paltrow’s eye-catching vivid blue sapphire also made its debut this year on the red carpet, confirming rumors of her engagement.

Move over Millennial Pink! Gen Z Yellow was this year’s hottest trend to watch in fashion, also holding true as an increasingly popular choice for engagement ring metals – in fact sales of yellow gold grew over 3 times faster compared to white gold in the first half of 2018. Actress-turned-Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle is known for her dazzling yellow gold engagement ring, and model Emily Ratajkowski’s asymmetrical engagement ring and thick gold wedding band had social media buzzing following the announcement of her wedding.

So long solitaire, hello three stone rings! Meghan Markle’s ring also follows the three stone trend in addition to yellow gold, as does Bachelorette Becca Kufrin’s three stone yellow gold oval engagement ring. Three stone engagement rings grew almost 3 times as fast as other ring styles in 2018!

Every single setting is beautiful, with its own glamour and allure. I’d consider myself lucky to have any of these.

The Selene diamond ring is absolutely exquisite and would be my dream ring if I were younger and just getting engaged.

I have a 2 caret emerald cut with 6 stones on each side. My 3rd ring. I think a diamond last forever, perhaps the marriage will too. God Bless
