Best Engagement Rings Of 2018

In the age of social media, one of the most important milestones in a woman’s life besides her wedding day is sharing a picture of her brand new engagement ring.

Are you even engaged if you fill other people’s newsfeeds with pictures of your ring?

Does he (or she) even love you if they don’t propose on a day you’ve got a proper manicure to show off? Point is, if you don’t upload the pic, it didn’t happen.

So, it’s of the utmost importance to make sure that if you’ve chosen your forever person, you also choose your forever engagement ring carefully.

It should reflect the bride-to-be’s personality, interests, and attitude without breaking your bank. Luckily, in this day and age, there are so many options for different types of people who are looking to buy a ring for that one finger I broke twice at eleven years old.

Even when my favorite gym teacher told me something along the lines of, “you gotta be more careful...we gotta get that ring on your finger".

The classic engagement ring is a white diamond on a gold band. The diamond isn’t usually too big or too small. It’s just right. But, for people who are looking for ideas, the rings can vary in shapes and sizes.

Some rings are huge and indicative of a person’s salary more than their actual love for the recipient of the timeless gift. Others are more humble, but just as elegant as the bigger ones, without being too flashy.

Studies have shown that marriages last longer when the engagement ring was cheaper because it reflects financial intelligence on the part of the buyer.

So, financial stress won’t factor into a divorce in those cases. So, don’t worry if you can’t buy the bride a dramatic ring.

Your marriage will probably last and your wedding will be fabulous, so that’s all that matters. However, read on to see more ideas for what engagement ring the lucky lady should wear on that finger I broke twice! 

1. Rose gold rings.


If 2017 had a color, it would be rose gold because rose gold has been on all kinds of materialistic products and that trend doesn’t look like it’ll slow down anytime soon.

Rose gold is one of my favorite colors and this kind of ring design is one of my favorites too.

2. Marquise diamond cut.


The marquise diamond cut earned itself a shout out by a pop artist, Selena Gomez’s song, “Good For You”, and it’s easy to see how it did.

This design has an beauty that says “less is more,” and displays a simple elegance that low-key women with expensive tastes love.

3. Colored gemstones.


I don’t know if Lady Gaga is to thank for this trend, but it sure does seem like wild colors are in ever since she went through her eccentric fashion phase. Colored gemstones are for the more adventurous ladies who appreciate beauty in any color. 

4. Stacked rings.


Stacked rings are good for those of us who don’t want something too thin nor too large. Plus, there’s more space for every girl’s favorite rock.
