From delicate silhouettes to statement halos, scroll down to learn Gerstein’s expert engagement ring insight!
On what's in: "We’re seeing lots of delicate silhouettes with minimal claw prongs to highlight the center gemstone. Traditional halo styles have been a trend for years, but couples are now selecting more distinctive halo designs, such as double halos, halos with floral details, and octagonal or cushion shaped halos." — Beth Gerstein, co-founder/co-CEO at Brilliant Earth
On what's out: "Traditional three-stone rings seem to have lost popularity as those customers are instead being drawn toward smaller baguette or other fancy shaped side stones. Also, channel-set diamonds and thicker bands are less desirable compared to petite bands set with French or scalloped pavé diamonds, which minimise the visible precious metal and create a shimmering effect." — Beth Gerstein, co-founder/co-CEO at Brilliant Earth
