Engagement Ring Trends for 2010 - The Bold and the Beautiful
Top 5 Engagement Ring Trends
When plotting the perfect way to ask the big question, one vital area is the type of engagement ring you will be proposing with. Not only do you want to impress her with your eye for style, but you also want her to say yes, don’t you? And since there are so many engagement rings to choose from, we’re here to help you find the perfect one. Here are the trends for 2010:
1. Ring Set:
Similar to Eternity Bands, Ring Sets allow you to pile several rings on one finger. However, the beauty of Ring Sets is that there is a focal point where the diamond is placed, which typically occurs in the middle ring. Some options on how you want the other rings to be included are, to leave them as sleek bands or to sprinkle them with small diamonds.
2. Different Shaped Diamonds:
Since the main attraction of rings are the diamonds, set your ring apart by choosing a different shape. Though a round diamond is the most popular, it is by far not the only shape one can choose to have their diamond chiseled into. Other shapes include but are not limited to pear, princess, oval, triangle.
3. Split Shanks:
Similar to the looks of Ring Set, Split Shanks are when two ring bands are meshed together in the back, and unionized with a diamond in the front. If you’re thinking about getting the classy solitaire style, perhaps consider Split Shanks as they have the elegance and the details to impress.
With fashion trending back to the early years of the twentieth century, it’s no surprise that the rings will have a similar trend. The main diamond in vintage rings are usually large and attention-grabbing, while surrounding that particular diamond are sparkles from smaller diamonds. Vintage rings have the elegance and the intricacies that will make your significant other feel like royalty.
Though the slim and classy solitaire look is popular and safe, the year 2010 is all about the big and the bold. Choosing a ring with a large band and diamond will definitely draw attention and your significant other will have a chance to stand out from the crowd.
