5 Engagement Ring Trends of 2017

As Maple Grove’s jeweler for unique and custom engagement rings we are always on the lookout for the season’s biggest bridal trends. In 2017 it’s about finding unique and surprising details that reflect your personal tastes. Here are the five biggest engagement ring trends we’re seeing for 2017:

1. Nature-Inspired

The outdoors have long been a source of inspiration. Engagement rings that evoke femininity with the use of delicate petals, organic vines and flowing leaves will continue to be favored in 2017.

2. Baguette Diamonds

We’ve seen an increase in the number of customers requesting baguette stones in their rings and the results are spectacular. These rectangular shaped diamonds provide a look that’s both understated and refined.  

3. Distinctive & Unique Halos

Halos have been popular for a number of years as a pretty way to frame your center diamond while also making it look bigger. The halo trend is evolving to include more unique and unusual halo designs. Stand out from the crowd with an eloquent and expressive halo or have us custom design one for you.

4. Yellow Gold

Not your Grandmother's ring! More and more brides are incorporating rose gold or yellow gold to add warmer tones to their engagement ring. Combining yellow or rose gold with a modern design is the perfect way to stay fresh and contemporary. 

5. Twisting Bands

Intertwining bands not only symbolize a couple’s union and harmonious love but also provides a captivating look that is sure to mesmerize.
