Creating mood boards on Pinterest is wildly popular with the online wedding community, but many users start pinning their ring inspiration before they even get engaged. It makes sense. Not only is it fun to fantasize about the perfect engagement ring, but it’s also a good way to think through one of the biggest decisions of a lifetime. With so many different styles and settings, and important things to know about diamonds, many use it to narrow down the options and figure out exactly what they want. (Although Blue Nile experts are always available 24/7 to help you, too.)
To ring in the new year we’ve collected Blue Nile’s most-pinned engagement rings of 2018. These crowd-approved styles show that unique twists on classic designs are trending now.
PAVÉ BAND ENGAGEMENT RINGS
Pavé wedding rings are among our bestsellers, and the use of pavé to highlight a stunning center stone is an especially popular take on this trend. This year, couples are saying more is more and adding sparkle in their engagement rings with a pavé band. We’re also loving that many found entwined bands of solid metal and pavé stones is a playful twist that’s just their style.
DIAMOND HALO ENGAGEMENT RINGS
It’s no surprise that this halo engagement ring graced so many mood boards. This popular setting is stunning, feminine and gives you the most bling for your budget.
SIDESTONE ENGAGEMENT RINGS
Sidestones, like pavé bands, help enhance your center diamond. While pavé reads more modern, these styles are definitely making it onto Pinterest boards for their classic, vintage vibes.
ROSE GOLD AND YELLOW GOLD ENGAGEMENT RINGS
Platinum and white gold have long been the reigning champions in the solitaire sphere. This year, however, rose and yellow gold solitaire bands graced more Pinterest boards.
SAPPHIRE ENGAGEMENT RINGS
Ever since Kate Middleton debuted her heirloom sapphire engagement ring, gemstone engagement rings have surged in popularity. But don’t just credit the royals for the recent trend. Sapphires symbolize trust and loyalty making them the perfect splash of meaningful color to add to your engagement ring.
