Of all the jewellery that you end up buying or receiving at your wedding, it’s the engagement ring that is the most special. It’s the one thing you’ll always want to wear and it’s no big secret that girls are extremely particular about this one piece of jewellery. So before you head out to select this special ring, here are a few trends you’ve got to be aware of.
1. The halo setting
An outline of tiny diamonds surrounding a larger centre stone is popularly known as the halo setting. Besides looking extremely elegant, this kind of setting attracts a lot of attention to the centre stone and also makes your engagement ring look bigger.POPxo Recommends: Round Halo Solitaire Ring (Rs 62,656 approx)
2. Experiment with shapes
Brides usually prefer the good old round diamond for their engagement ring. But a different shape will only make your ring stand out and give it a more modern feel. Experiment with fancy cuts such as oval, pear or even a square piece.POPxo Recommends: Lily Elegant Solitaire Ring (Rs 64,949 approx)

Engagement rings are no longer limited to just one ring. The latest trend is that of stackable rings! A promise ring, a purity ring, a commitment ring, a pre-engagement ring and even more if you wish to stack up some more! *Wink* POPxo Recommends: The Raina Ring (Rs 31,013 approx)
4. Don’t be afraid of colour
Yes! Add a bit of colour to your engagement ring with a ruby or an emerald stone. While we are still fans of the classic diamond look, a bit of colour never hurt anyone. It’ll only make your ring look even more attractive.
Rose gold seems to have become quite a rage! It’s everywhere and honestly, we’re loving it. For girls who don’t like the yellow gold polish, rose gold is a great option. An engagement ring in this shade is sure to make your hands look extremely elegant.POPxo Recommends: Forget Me Not Diamond Band (Rs 23,531 approx)
