Jewelry changes trends just like any other style outlet. But I find that engagement rings don’t change trends as often as say shoes or haircuts. Solitaire rings have always and will always be in style for the clean band and simple elegance to show off the stone. Edwardian settings have more metal work that embellish the clusters of little accent diamonds. The 80’s saw a trend of artsy bands in yellow gold. Currently, micropavé halos around the stone and down the side of the band are the newest trend in engagement rings. I mean what girl doesn’t want loads of diamonds? I know I wouldn’t complain!
But what about stepping away from the usual suspects and finding new and interesting cuts in diamonds? As the traditional circular cut diamond has started to make way for different cuts like emerald and cushion, what about going one step farther?
This 2.9ct hexagon shaped center stone from Lang Jewelers in San Francisco is just stunning with it’s minimal facets and trillion side stones. The hexagon while being unique still is reminiscent of a circular center stone. The cut has fewer facets making light bounce off like an emerald cut and six prongs like a Tiffany’s setting. The setting is moderately high on the finger so finding a band that only has a slight curve to hug the setting is needed if you want them to lay flush. If you’re looking for a band that doesn’t lay flush, maybe pair it with another angular or geometric shaped stoned band.
It’s rare to find a stone like this that is so special. I hope someone snaps it up!
