Heaven is for real, and it's the annual JCK Las Vegas, where hundreds of the world's finest jewelers show off baubles and gems that literally make your jaw drop. Each and every piece of jewelry we laid eyes on was pretty enough to make our hearts swoon, but what really caught our eye were the seven gorgeous trends below!
Engagement rings aren't just coming in the traditional solitaire, three-stone or halo setting anymore — designers are getting creative. The perfect example? Karl Lagerfeld's Tour Eiffel Collection, inspired by the iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris.
Everything old is new again, at least when it comes to engagement rings. Some of our favorite jewelry designers are looking to the past for inspiration for their newest masterpieces, like this Asscher cut beauty from Vtse Jewelry. From the art deco-inspired halo to the unique baguette, this ring is as good as it gets!
Oval cut center stones have been trending for a while now, and this trend isn't going anywhere. In fact, it's just getting bigger. Rahaminov Diamonds introduced the exclusive "Movál," an elongated oval cut stone that gets its name from the marquis and oval cut diamonds. We're predicting that this exaggerated cut will be everywhere, and we're very excited about that!
If you can't decide between platinum, rose gold or yellow gold, why not combine two of your favorites? Thankfully, you'll have plenty of options, like this Sylvie Collection stunner.
Gold + Rose Gold
Like oval cut stones, the rose gold and yellow gold trend is going absolutely nowhere. Why? Maybe because it's flattering on all skin tones, or maybe because the gold tones feel fresh and romantic, just like this stunning ring from Rahaminov Diamonds. Whatever the reason, we're not complaining.
If you've been keeping up with millennial news, chances are, you've heard that they're ditching traditional engagement rings. Whether they're buying gemstone rings, like this gorgeous Erica Courtney Tourmaline one, because they can be more cost effective, or because they're more unique than your traditional e-ring, prepare to see a lot more colored ring selfies in your Insta feed.
We love a halo for it's sparkle and ability to make any diamond look bigger, but we really love the new halos we saw at JCK, like this Evelyn H. Jewelry scalloped double halo featuring fancy yellow diamonds and a fancy yellow diamond center stone.
