Engagement Rings 2013: Styles & Trends

Showcase with the latest styles in bridal jewelry

Bridal jewelry and engagement rings for 2013 reflect today's values with practicality, personal whimsy, and a focus on what matters most.

It's a year that abounds with personal style and choices!

Gone are the days when rings were chosen solely based on what is expected and how they're perceived by others. In 2013, couples are showing their independence and opting for bridal jewelry with deeper meaning, social consciousness, and unique designs that reflect their personal style.

Engagement Ring Trends 2013: Setting The Scene

In 2011, the biggest trend was intricately detailed metalwork. In 2012, we took a 180 degree turn by focusing on the purity of clean geometric shapes rather than embellishment and now in 2013, the newest trend in engagement rings is layering.

Layering of color, metal, and stones.

Engaging Tip:  Diamonds used for layering and accenting a center stone are much cheaper due to their small sizes so you'll get much more Bling! for your diamond buck if you go with a non-diamond center!

The best part about this latest trend is that layered settings allow you to personalize your ring to suit your individual style.

You can combine different metals within the same piece or wear a two-tone wedding band with a single metal ring, or vice versa:

Latest Trends and Shapes for 2013

The round brilliant and princess shaped stones will never lose traction in bridal jewelry but the latest styles showcase how individuality has become so important for today's bride. The fancier diamond shapes like Ovals and Marquise are enjoying a renaissance as is the Pear shape with its asymmetrical design that can be worn facing inward or outward.

However the biggest trend by far, regardless of shape, is in baguettes and side-stones. We should probably thank "Brangelina" for this latest trend which fits nicely with the overall layered look for engagement rings in 2013.
