Diamond Registry Talks Ring Trends

We don’t know about you, but sometimes we find ourselves ogling at all the gorgeous gems, diamonds and ravishing ring settings online (yes… we may have a bit of a Pinterest addiction!). The year 2016 has seen several different styles and settings rise in popularity, which haven’t gone unnoticed by our jewellery addicted eyes. So to keep you updated on what’s hot in the dazzling world of diamonds, we’ve got the top 5 diamond rings settings of the year below:


Coloured Diamonds Rings

Want to stand out from the crowd but still follow one of these upcoming trends? A coloured diamond is the way to go! That’s right, if you’re looking for something extra special, you can opt for a variety of different coloured diamonds or gem stones such as sapphires, emeralds and rubies. More and more people desire coloured diamonds, influenced by their popularity at auctions such as Sotheby’s and Christie’s (just look at the Oppenheimer blue, The cullinan dream, Pink Star, Aurora Green and Unique Pink!). Top of the list? Sweet, subtle pink diamonds and dreamy blue ones too…

High Prong-Basket Rings

Up, up and away! High prong-basket rings are all the rage for engagement rings and we can see why. They can make your diamond appear much larger (it’s all about tricking the eye!) and fit together more easily with a diamond wedding band.

Mixed Metal Rings

If you can’t make your mind up or you ‘re looking something really unique, go for mixed metals in your ring. This means choosing different kinds of metals for different parts of the rings. Think gold for the band, and white gold for the prongs… you can even get clever about it and use this expert trick to change the appearance of the ring, making the claws less visible or to highlight different parts of the ring. There’s no limits for mixed metal rings! What’s more, it makes the ring even more personal and one-of-a-kind.

Elaborate Side View Rings

It’s all about the details when it comes to this trend. These days, rings can be made with endless details, so why not make the most of them? Intricate details on the side of rings means that it will look beautiful from every angle, and adds more layers of appreciation to your piece. Gaze at your sparkler from the top, side or bottom and you won’t ever be disappointed!

Coloured Side Stone Rings

Love the classic diamond engagement ring look, but still want to add something a little different? Add two coloured side stones next to your centre diamond for an extra pop of colour… yellow, blue, pink or green are the most popular, and this trend allows you to include your favourite gem stone with your diamond!

Feeling inspired? So are we! These trends are gorgeous, but remember, you don’t need to limit yourself to just these styles. Choose what feels right for you!
