Classic rings have always been trendsetters; and something you can never go wrong with. You might want to get a diamond solitaire or a diamond accented at
the sides with baguettes. As far as stone shapes are concerned, round
and emerald-cut diamonds continue to be strong, but the latest
classic cut on the scene is the oval. And platinum continues to be
the metal of choice for a classic setting. Antique rings are the
newest fashion entrants. The trendy yet nostalgic pieces fit well
into the vintage theme that's now hot in clothes and accessories.
These rings can feature unique details like filigree settings, floral
accents, or gemstone baguettes.


Platinum has come in as the new choice metal for many diamond engagement rings because its rich luster brings out the brilliance and fire of diamonds like no other metal. Platinum is
naturally white and will maintain its shining luminosity forever,
unlike other white metals, which, in time, may turn yellow or
tarnish. It is also the strongest precious metal used in jewelry, and
is almost twice as heavy as 14-karat gold. Platinum Bands enhanced
with hand-carved custom designs, filigree and inset stones are in
fashion. Chunky platinum rings encrusted with diamonds continue to be
popular among men, while women favor delicate vintage-inspired
platinum creations. Modern styles capitalize on clean, streamlined
designs for that cosmopolitan chic and daily wear use. For a most
contemporary style, look for bezel-set styles and designs where the
diamond is "tension-set" (seeming to float in space, held
in the setting at its very edges) or set flush to the surface of the
metal.

Rings with colored stones are very fashionable, since they offer a very personalized flair. Even colored diamonds are in rage, with yellow, pink, blue and black varieties. If you want to
stick with a white stone, you could accentuate it with lively gems
like sapphires, rubies, emeralds or even your birthstone. Recent
innovations in the diamond cutting industry can help you to opt for
entirely new shapes. The popular new cuts include the Zales Diamond,
which display more facets than traditional cuts to increase the
stone's fire; and alternative shapes like the princess-cut (modified
square), which offer the bride-to-be more individuality than the more
traditional round, marquise, emerald, pear, or oval shape. New
settings for engagement rings are tension (the stone is only held on
its edges, suspended, and appears to float) and bezel (the stone is
flush with the ring's surface).
