If recently engaged celebs like Ashley Tisdale and Olivia Wilde are indicators, we will be seeing unique engagement ring designs and more intricate settings in the upcoming months. CBG spoke to James Allen, the largest privately held diamond retailer in the world, who shared his predictions for the hottest new styles this fall.
SWIRL ENGAGEMENT RINGS:
This timeless classic features a windswept swirl of pave diamonds that wraps around the center diamond of your choice. Jennifer Aniston’s engagement ring from her ex-hubby Brad Pitt featured a swirl-design by Silvia Damiani.
DOUBLE SHANKS OR MULTI ROW PAVE:
This contemporary solitaire features a rounded crossover band with pave diamonds and an integrated basket designed to securely display the center diamond of your choice. This is a band that she will love for infinity.
Engraving inside the band allows a personal message or expression of love for one another. Katy Perry’s engagement ring from Russell Brand was engraved with the lyrics of the Nick Cave song “Are You The One That I’ve Been Waiting For.”
Statuesque in design, this ring features two rows of pave which envelop the center diamond of your choice and are accentuated with a pave shank that splits gracefully at the bridge. A classic design with modern appeal. Jennifer Hudson wears a five-carat engagement ring with a double halo of pave diamonds around the center stone.
