Modern Engagement Rings

At one time, almost all engagement rings featured a round cut solitaire diamond. These types of rings are still immensely popular today; however, many couples have made the decision to choose more contemporary, unique engagement rings. Many of these trends have been inspired by celebrities.

One trend in engagement rings that is catching on quickly is that of the coloured diamonds. While most people think of colourless diamonds when thinking of engagement rings, there are actually many different colours available for diamonds. Pink is by far one of the most popular choices for coloured diamond engagement rings. The most famous pink engagement ring is that which was given to Jennifer Lopez by Ben Affleck several years ago. Even though the two eventually broke off their engagement and went on to marry other people, the popularity of pink engagement rings remains. Other popular choices for coloured diamonds today include champagne and canary yellow. Even black is catching on as some consumers are now purchasing mocha or chocolate diamonds for engagement rings.
