Wedding trends ebb and flow in sync with changing lifestyles. Along with fluctuating dress, flower, venue, and theme directions, wedding and engagement rings also adapt to the changing appeal of today’s bride.
While solitaire settings and round-cut stones shimmering against white gold and platinum remain classic, new trends in 2018 are showcasing unique East-West settings, colored stones, mixed metals including rose and yellow golds, and other non-traditional options
Also loyal to their four-legged partners, equestrians enjoy additional equine-themed ring choices that elegantly incorporate fine gemstones, metals, craftsmanship, and yes, even horsehair.
