I was thinking about this today. Historically erings go through styles and trends just like anything else. What styles do you think are the look of the early 2000’s? I think the styles people will think of a characterizing the last decade are:
The princess solitaire

Well here recently everyone I know in real life has a princess cut or halo & a few have round/three stone.

Definitely halos, diamond-covered bands, and platinum/white gold.

Definitely halos! I agree on the white gold/platinum, too–rings are seldom yellow gold anymore although I think it’s on the rise now (maybe the next decade will be more yellow than white, we’ll see).

I was definitely going to say halo’s – they are everywhere these days, and I don’t remember really seeing them as HUGE until recently. (I love them, though.)

I agree with the halos and the white gold/platinum. Most every ring I’ve seen lately has been a white gold halo.

I agree with you – princess solitaires and halos. I really hope I still love my halo ring in ten+ years. Right now I can’t imagine anything more beautiful but I bet women who got married in the 80’s thought that too and now I think their rings tend to be kinda hideous. : /

Ha, I have a princess with a halo! He made the final selection, though, and he isn’t one to follow fashion trends. He just thought it was pretty and my style.

I agree about the two main styles of the 2000s. I knew that I always wanted a princess solitare before I got engaged. I like the halos, but they just aren’t me. I really didn’t notice them until after I got married. I’m curious to see what the engagement ring trend of 2012 will be.

I’ve seen a lot of three stone rings, including mine. Which doesn’t bother me. I have seen a lot of halos too.

It’s funny that everyone says “halo”. I have a halo and love it, and I see them commonly online, but I don’t know anybody else IRL that has one. (Kind of like photobooths; I see lots of them online, but I’ve never been to a wedding with one.) I don’t really care if they are popular or not, I got it because I liked it; I never know they were “popular” or “in” until I started looking at wedding stuff online.

@moonadea – What was the “style” in the 80s?
Post # 14
I think you named the top two! I would say definitely halos. I feel like everyone has one! Also, diamonds in the e-ring band. I feel like you either have a solitaire with a plain band these days, or a halo with stones in the band. 🙂
That being said, I have a three stone, haha, and I’ve obviously seen many other styles on the bee, they’re just maybe a bit less popular/common.

agree with halos. I love them, but decided against it because I was afraid it would look to dated/trendy of a period of time. They may not though
I see many newly engaged with halos.

@abbyful: I think pear shaped diamonds… or maybe that would be 90s. My mom had one from her second marriage and its a great diamond. She hates it now.
