Engagement Ring

Step in Grant Mobley, a gemologist and the Director at Pluczenik, who in conversation with Cosmopolitan shared the four engagement ring trends that are set to be huge in 2018.

Get set to sparkle with these four fabulous flashy numbers…

1. Three Stone Rings

“Three stone rings are a marvellous choice because their design possibilities are endless – diamond shapes and colours can be any combination you like, making this a true classic option.”

2. Fancy Yellow Diamonds

“Yellow diamonds with a fancy grading are even rarer than white diamonds, and generally come at a higher value”, Grant says.

“Nicki Minaj, Kelly Clarkson, Iggy Azalea and Heidi Klum are among the names who have all been seen sporting amazing yellow diamonds.”

Oval Shape Engagement Ring

3. Oval Shape

“Elongated diamond cuts such as the oval usually appear larger next to the same size round, or square cut diamond”, he says.

“This size illusion makes it a great choice.”

Rose Gold Engagement Rings

4. Rose Gold

“When it comes to choosing a metal for an engagement ring, the most popular conventional choices have been white/yellow gold and platinum”, Grant says.

“We have seen stars such as Allison Brie, Leighton Meester, and Hayden Panettiere with rose gold and diamond rings, showing us that rose gold is not only a unique option but a beautiful one that will stand the test of time”.
