When shopping for engagement rings, couples today are looking for styles that provide a unique twist on tradition and that reflect their personal tastes and romance. From colored stones to vintage settings, the top engagement ring trends for 2011 provide enough variety for each bride to find a style uniquely her own. Whether your preference is for contemporary or classic, ornate or simple, you’ll find inspiration in the top trends for 2011.


Halo Setting:


One engagement ring trend that is being requested more and more often at jewelers, and has been recently seen on celebrities, is a halo setting. The unique style has the distinctive feature of a


circle of diamonds, or a "halo" that appears to float around the center diamond. Not only do the extra diamonds add tons of sparkle, they can crate the impression of a larger center stone.


Vintage/Heirloom: Inspired by the


timelessness of Audrey Hepburn, tailored dress and Mad Men – vintage engagement ring styles are back. Think intricate settings with metal and diamond detailing. In addition to the beauty and integrity of the lines, you can be confident that these designs will be timeless.

Twisted Band: From swirling diamond bands to smooth metal weaves, twisted band settings provide an extra wow- factor on the classic band. Some designers


are doing interesting things with the shape of the bands, casting or carving in sculptural reliefs. The result is a design that elevates and challenges traditional perceptions.


Colored Gemstones: Taking a cue from the colorful fabrics and detailing seen recently on fashion runways, brides are getting more adventurous and are incorporating


colored


gemstones such as emerald, ruby and citrine to maximize their ring’s radiance. The brilliant hues from colored stones can speak volumes about a couple’s unique vibe.


Floral: Ideal for the romantic bride - from the diamond encrusted pave petals supporting each stone, to the finely sculpted and organically marked mountings – the floral motif setting is feminine, graceful and elegant.
