Besides the end of year Christmas parties, work functions and New Years Eve plans, the festive season ‘rings’ in another special time of year. Think romantic gestures and sparkly diamonds… yes, it’s engagement season! And although December is usually a slow month for weddings, it is by far the most popular time for engagements. The holiday season brings with it happy memories, lots of family time and beautiful summer days in Cape Town – the perfect time to pop the question. Here’s a look at some of the biggest engagement ring trends we’ve seen this year.
Coloured gemstones have been a huge hit this year – from deep blue sapphires to elegant pink morganites. This unique take on a traditional halo really caught our eye! Consider it your “something blue”.
Pavé Diamond Bands
With a classic setting in the centre and diamonds all around, the best thing about these diamond-encrusted engagement rings is that they’re sparkly from every angle.
Vintage Inspired Rings
Yes, this popular trend looks as if it’s here to stay. Rose gold has been on our radar for some time now and it seems brides-to-be are still loving this romantic metal.
