Rings & Band Trends

It’s true what they say, diamonds are, and always will be a girl’s best friend. But sometimes a giant or bulky ring can get in the way. Don’t get us wrong, we love anything that sparkles, but we are also loving the new trend of minimalist engagement rings and wedding bands for the simple elegant look it provides. Not to mention the practicality! Here are some of our favorites, courtesy of WeddingWire:

Low Emerald Cut:

Check out this non-elevated emerald cut diamond ring with a thin wedding band to accommodate it. We also love that the emerald is sideways!

Something Blue:

We love this solitaire blue diamond and yellow gold band. Just stunning!

2

Eternity times infinity

We love this eternity band. The marquise diamonds make it look like an infinity band with bling all over!

3

Rose Gold Dainty

We love the elegant look of a thin, rose gold band. Accompany it with a small diamond band beneath the engagement ring and you’ve got an elegant and chic ring finger!
