If the most exciting time in your life is finally here (getting engaged of course!) and you are beginning to look for your dream ring, you have to know what is in and what isn't. I am here to help! I put together a list of the top 5 engagement ring trends for 2018. Let's take a look at which rings made the cut.

Rose Gold/Yellow Gold

Choosing a ring with a rose gold or yellow gold band will automatically put a more modern twist on your ring. Rose gold has become extremely popular in the jewelry world, so why not add it to your engagement ring. Choosing a rose gold band will add such a delicate and girly feel to your ring and is great for everyday wear, it definitely isn't going out of style any time soon.

Yellow gold is also trendy, but at the same time it will give your ring a more classic and traditional feel. Yellow gold is perfect for the girl who wants to keep up with trends, but wants an engagement ring that will feel timeless and will never go out of style.

Cushion Cut

A cushion cut diamond will give your ring a unique look, and is becoming more and more popular. A cushion cut diamond is shaped like a square, but with rounded edges. Depending on preference the diamond can be cut like the one pictured above, or it can be cut so that it appears elongated which can give the ring a completely different look.

Oval Cut

If you are looking for a glamorous ring, look no further then then an oval cut diamond. Oval cut diamonds are modern and very glamorous. An oval cut diamond can make a small stone appear larger that a round stone of the same weight, which is one of the reasons why this cut is a hit. Oval cuts pair well with a simple band and look great when stacked with wedding bands.

Dainty Bands

Choosing a ring with a dainty band will give you room to stack your engagement ring with your wedding band. Stacking your engagement ring with one or more wedding bands is a really pretty trend that has become super popular. Just because the band is "dainty" doesn't mean it has to be too simple. You can add diamonds (like the one pictured above) around the band or braiding which will immediately add some spice, while being careful not to over power the center stone. 

Colored Stones

An engagement ring with a colored stone will immediately stand out in the best way possible! Colored stones can be traditional, but will put a modern spin on your ring. I source all of my gems from ethical sources, so I can help you find a colored stone that is completely unique to your ring. Stones like Montana Sapphires are extremely durable, so they are great for an engagement ring that you'll plan to wear everyday.
