The Halo, combining a central Diamond with a surrounding outer ring of small Diamonds, this design gives the ring a real ‘wow’ factor without the potentially high cost of a solitaire, very much the Engagement ring of choice right now.
White Gold with a move towards Platinum of late, with the styles currently being made the swing to White Gold is obviously a smart move, however the gap between Platinum and 18ct White Gold re cost has been closed and many brides are now taking the Platinum option without as much added cost as years gone by.
Rose Gold has seen a resurgence of late also, it combines very well with White Gold and/or more than holds its own as the only colour being used.
The Vintage look touching on Art Deco is becoming very popular again, striking designs can be achieved with multiple small Diamonds and the lean towards Rose Gold compliments the Vintage look beautifully. Decorative is most definitely preferred over the simplistic styles of recent times.
Ladies Wedding Rings are becoming almost exclusively Diamond set, bands are being made to compliment the existing Engagement Ring, curved if necessary to fit flush. However a very recent leaning to the stack Ring look has seen multiple layering of different ring styles placed against the Engagement Ring giving a very random loose look.
Two tone Wedding bands for the Gents, combing a mix of many metals and colours has become the choice of most discerning Gents. White Gold combined with the darker grey Titanium, black Zirconium or Rose Gold is making a huge noise in the world of Gents wedding Rings.
Texture, whether it is a subtle matt finish or something a little heavier, unpolished is the king of finishes on Gents Wedding Rings. It is sometimes balanced with subtle rows of Diamonds to give a decorative look to the ‘unfinished’ piece.
