Here at Dracakis Jewellers we help many couples in the search for the perfect engagement ring. The one that embodies her personal style and reflects her as a person. We hand craft many engagement rings to suit individuals with unique styles but we’ve noticed 3 top trends for this year.
Diamond Halo Engagement Rings
Halos are in, and it’s easy to see why. Originally a fashion icon of the 1920s and 30s, halo diamond engagement rings create a beautiful, art deco look that maximizes the brilliance of your diamonds for a truly spectacular look. Especially for couples who are looking for superior value in their engagement ring, the halo of diamonds around the centre stone create an amazing effect to make the centre stone pop. We expect to see a variety of halo-style diamond engagement rings on the hands of celebrities and brides alike in 2016…and not just because it’s our personal favourite.
Split Shank Engagement Rings
So, sometimes the prettiest things have less-than-beautiful names, as is the case here with split-shank engagement rings. Some confuse this style with the typical twisted band, but it’s definitely worth it’s own category. Spectacular for showcasing your centre diamond, the defined split shank creates a striking look that maximizes the light returned from every angle (making your diamond sparkle even brighter!). A long-time favourite of Hollywood’s leading ladies, We have a feeling the split shank will once again be making the rounds as one of 2016’s most popular styles for women everywhere.
Large Solitaire Diamond Engagement Rings
Solitaire engagement rings are always in, but the key to this year is “big.” And yes, We mean, one, two and even three carat dazzlers. For a while, it seemed that couples were understandably scaling back, but we’ve really been seeing that trend take a turn upward in the past few months. Maybe it’s all the press around enormous stunners on celebrity hands making women yearn for their own, but honestly, who doesn’t love the look of a brilliant round or Dream cut solitaire engagement ring? With multiple options on the band design that make it perfect for any woman’s fashion style or personality, these timeless classics are going to once again light up the bridal industry of 2018.
