There is nothing quite as relaxing as spending an evening curled up on the couch in yoga pants, laptop in hand and your favorite T.V. show playing in the background. And whether you are in a committed relationship or just daydreaming of your future, the first place you probably go to explore current trends and dazzling ring styles is Pinterest. It is the perfect place to store all of your favorite engagement ring styles, wedding colors and cake preferences.
According to US Magazine, there are seven main engagement ring trends that have seen an increase in pins the past 12 months. And if your Pinterest boards are brimming with ideas for your wedding day like ours are, you will probably notice some of them appearing and re-appearing within.
Here are just a few of our favorite top Pinterest contenders.
A peachy pink stone that looks absolutely stunning when paired with trendy rose gold, Morganite has seen at 62 percent increase in pins over the past year. The obvious stone choice for ladies who love everything pink, it has a high durability rating, allowing it to stand up to the everyday wear and tear your stunning ring is sure to face in the years to come.
Another top engagement ring pin, the opal stone has seen a 42 percent pin increase since 2015. This jump in popularity might have something to do with reality T.V. star Rebecca Lo Robertson getting engaged. The “Duck Dynasty” family member is now sporting a beautiful art deco style ring, complete with a large oval-shaped opal center stone.
Although we at Diamonds Forever absolutely love opal jewelry, we don’t recommend these stones in engagement rings because of how soft they are. Opals can easily craze (break or crack) or become abraded (scratched) with everyday wear.
Pear Shaped Stones
As we mentioned back in October of 2015, pear shapes stones are on the rise when it comes to engagement rings. Over the past year there has been an incredible 100 percent increase in pins featuring these gorgeous diamond engagement rings, and we are absolutely thrilled to hear this news.
Not only is a pear-shaped stone a simple way to make a traditional diamond ring stand out from the crowd, but it also creates a beautiful slimming effect on the hand.
Three Stone Rings
The final of this year’s Pinterest stars, the three stone engagement ring has risen in popularity by 58 percent. It is also a three stone diamond engagement ring that has claimed the title of “Most Popular on Pinterest” with over 78,000 pins to its name! Between the highlighted center stone and the tiny details, there are so many things to love about this ring. And there is no way that you can go wrong when choosing this style engagement ring to propose to your one and only with.
