This quirky new engagement ‘ring’ trend is sure to divide people

An interesting choice...

13 Mar 2018

When it comes to engagement rings, some people like to go against the grain and be as alternative as possible - and this latest trend definitely ticks all those boxes.

Microdermal piercings or surface piercings seem to be popping up on social media a lot lately, and it seems that people are getting them instead of engagement rings. It's bound to cause some discussion because it looks pretty painful - you've been warned.

It also works on a logical level too, because you don't have to worry about taking it off and leaving it somewhere - but could you imagine getting it caught on something? Ouch.

Well, each to their own!

If you prefer something a little more traditional when it comes to engagement rings, Pinterest has kindly put together a list of all the trends we can expect to see in 2018.

Everyone, let us introduce you to moissanite - the big trend for this year.

Not really sure what that is? Well, it's probably time you do, future bride-to-be, because the search for moissanite has been up 294% over the past year on Pinterest.

Moissanite is a gemstone, first discovered in 1893 by a French scientist named Henri Moissan. When Henri first spotted the stone in a crater created by a meteorite that fell to Earth, he thought he had found diamonds.

With a similar brilliance and look to diamonds, natural moissanite is incredibly rare, so the gemstones available today are laboratory-created. The benefit of getting a moissanite gemstone over a diamond is that, first of all, they are much cheaper, but they are also considered eco-friendly and very durable, perfect for everyday wear.

Also on Pinterest's list? Art deco rings and oval shaped rings. The old school type of design saw a 173% increase in search over the past year, while oval shapes saw a 125% increase.

So get an oval-shaped moissanite, with art deco design details, and you'll be the trendiest bride on the block.
