Hidden halo, fancy shape diamonds, color gemstones and more amongst the hottest trends for engagement season

Engagement season is upon us! Nearly 40 percent of marriage proposals happen between November through February. It shouldn’t be hard to say “I Do” to this year’s hottest engagement ring trends. While classic engagement rings will always remain a popular and timeless trend, Robbins Brothers, The Engagement Ring Store, has unveiled the latest stand out trends from 2018, as well as jaw-dropping up-and-coming trends.

The Hidden Halo
We’re all familiar with the long-lasting halo trend, however, the hidden halo has been all the rage this year. A hidden halo is perfect for someone who loves the halo trend, but wants something a little more discreet. A hidden halo maximizes the size appearance of a stone when it's looked at head on from the top, so that the halo can very subtly peek out around the center stone. That size appearance increase is about 1mm or 15% in most cases; making it a great alternative to a classic, bold halo look. Robbins Brothers Signature collection as well as designer Michael M feature the hidden halo trend.

Fancy Shape Diamonds
Despite their exclusive-sounding name, the fancy diamond shape includes every shape that is not a round cut. The term “fancy shape” was created in an attempt to diversify the diamond market and promote shapes other than the typical round. Popular fancy-shaped diamonds include princess, pear, oval, emerald, and cushion shape engagement rings. The Poem Collection has a plethora of fancy shape diamonds to choose from. Fancy shape diamonds have gained increased popularity over the last year, as they are a perfect way to express individuality and personal style.

Color Gemstones
Color gemstones have quickly begun to pop up as a way to switch up your classic engagement ring. These vibrant pops of color in the form of Sapphire, Emerald, Ruby and more give any ring a classy yet unique look. Color gemstones are versatile and can be used as the main stone in a ring or as flanking accents on a band. The Blossom Collection and designer Coast Diamond are popular amongst patrons searching for the perfect color gemstone.

Thick Bands & Stackables
Thick bands and stackables are most commonly seen in wedding sets. Thick, bold bands are a new trend that isn’t minimal by any means, but it says that the wearer is interested in something stunning, yet more practically styled. Designer Simon G. has big, bold and beautiful settings with thick bands that brides will adore.

Stackable bands have perhaps become the most Instagrammable ring trend of 2018, as their intricate design is one to be admired. Since you’re combining a few different bands, it takes careful thought and curation. It’s about varying the shapes and styles of the bands, while using the same or mixed metals to personalize your look. When it comes to stackable bands, the options are endless -- the Stacked Collection and designer Henri Daussi are amongst the popular.
