If this is your year and you have decided to pop the question, we’ve got some good news for you! With millennials beginning to get engaged, many are changing traditions and establishing new ones that reflect their views and preferences. For instance, more couples are writing their wedding vows (up 5% from 2014), having a friend or family member officiate (up 8% in the same time frame), and inviting friends along on their honeymoon (called a buddymoon). September and October have replaced May and June as the most popular months to get married, but December still ranks #1 as the most popular month to get engaged.
With all those changes, though, one thing remains absolutely the same: the engagement ring. Although white gold has usurped the place of yellow gold as the favorite (70% of brides prefer white gold), rose gold is rising in the ranks, too. And, of course, there’s always the perennial favorite, platinum.
So how do you know what to choose for your bride-to-be? A whopping 86% of brides claim that overall design is the most important aspect, more even than the size of the diamond. With that in mind, we offer you 7 of the hottest looks for 2017, with several examples to choose from. Selecting one of these rings is sure to please your intended.
