Today, those who plan on popping the big question soon are faced with a wide range of choices for rings. Jewellery experts now enumerate these rising trends on engagement rings that are set to dominate this year.

Newer takes on the halo

Even if modern rings are set to win over modern brides, others might still prefer the intricate details and astounding beauty of vintage rings – either genuine old or modern reproductions. Edwardian era engagement rings, for instance, are seen to make a comeback this year, mostly due to its intricacy and femininity.
