Ann highlighted the importance of communication to really know the bride's dream ring: "The best way to ensure that you both will be happy with the engagement ring from both a style and a budget perspective is to talk to each other about it," Ko says. "You can leave the element of surprise to when and where the proposal will take place.". She also mentioned the current trends for alternative bridal: "The most resounding trend in engagement rings this year is colored stone rings," Ko says. "This can be anything from moonstones to topazes, through sapphires and rubies, and on to more unusual diamond types like rose-cut or rustic diamonds.".

We have lots of options for the bride-to-be, whether she is classic, colorful or a combination of both! Check out our collection of rustic diamond rings for an unforgettable, unique engagement ring she'll love.
