Mixed Metals

Silver? Gold? Who said you ever had to choose? Mixed metals is the engagement ring’s answer to having your cake and eating it too. This trend is both visually beautiful and a nod to eras of the past.

Rose gold

Find the choice between silver and gold too limiting? You’re in luck, rose (or pink) gold is now becoming a more popular metal of choice. With the subtly of a silver ring and with a dash of drama a gold ring brings, a rose gold ring is a gorgeous third option that shouldn’t be over looked.
