Engagement Ring Trends of 2017 - Part III

This just in, the new rules about wedding bands are, well, there are no rules! 

These days, everyone wants to be unique, and that includes what they wear to represent their love. Not to be outdone, some of the top names in Hollywood also are adopting the edgy vibe of quirky wedding rings for their engagement. 

What do we mean by ‘quirky’? Let’s have a look and discuss some examples of what mismatched wedding bands are all the rage for 2017. 

Mismatched Bands Are Ultra-Chic

 Traditionally, most brides have adored wedding sets that match perfectly. Bands with uniquely colored metals or those with various colored gemstones are becoming increasingly popular with brides. Bands that have a paring of platinum and gold are now the envy of brides. There’s no hard and fast rule as to what gemstones and metal tones go together any longer. The rules have gone by the way-side, and matching unconventional jewels and metals is now a major “yes”!

Moi Moi’s Mismatched 

Not only are every day brides looking for mismatched metal rings, but also celebrities like Drew Barrymore, Gwen Stefani, Kaley Cuoco and even Portia de Rossi are also loving the mismatched trend. Instead of being a show of status and wealth, wedding rings are now becoming a symbol of personal expression for the individual or couple. Whether set to highlight a simple solitaire ring or a more elaborate piece, this trend opens up endless possibilities.

In our collection, you can explore the mismatched wedding band trend with our Sienna A wedding ring. You can match it with the Sienna engagement ring, but to stay on trend you could easily pair it with one of the Rose Gold pieces we mentioned in last week’s trend article. The Sienna A is perfectly accented with round diamond accents of 0.20tcw. You could also pair it with a gold band ring for the perfect vintage mismatched pair.

Next we’ll explore Step Cuts and how they’re coming back in style with a twist.
