Ring setting trends

We expect to see the three stone ring continue to rise in popularity throughout 2019, due largely to Meghan Markle’s stunning engagement ring. Celebrity engagement rings aways play a big role in the popularity of ring styles. We also expect to see a return to yellow gold and of course, gemstones are an increasingly popular choice.

How to choose a ring setting

There are a few steps to follow in order to chose a ring setting:

1. Establish a budget: Set a realistic price budget and be sure to stick to it. Not only will this help narrow down your search, but knowing your budget before you go to make a purchase will help you stay in charge of your finances.

2. Choose a metal type: White gold, yellow, platinum or silver? If choosing for a partner, consider what type of jewelry they normally wear and what metal types they favor.

3.  Pick a style: Classic? Choose a prong setting for a timeless look. Unique? The three stone setting is a good option. Modern? Consider halo.
