Precious Petites

Engagement Ring Trends

Bigger isn’t always better. Especially when it comes to engagement rings. We can prove it.

Whoever said that wearing a diamond bigger than your head was chic? Not us, and clearly not these jewelers that are enamored with smaller, sweeter engagement rings.

“In an age of bigger is better, I love that our rings are dainty. It goes back to an honest notion that this ring symbolizes commitment between two people in love. Its size is delicate, but its elegance is enormous,” says Candice Pool of Finn Jewelry.

Don’t get us wrong, if someone handed us a 10-carat diamond necklace we would certainly delight in our Liz Taylor moment, but honestly there is something so special and charming about these precious petite rings that we can’t take our eyes off them.

Owner of Finn Jewelry, Candice Pool, agrees, “In an age of bigger is better, I love that our rings are dainty. It goes back to an honest notion that this ring symbolizes commitment between two people in love. Its size is delicate, but its elegance is enormous.” See, didn’t we tell you?

From .30 to just grazing a carat, these diamonds come in all shapes and sizes. Colors from white to blue to cognac suit classic to quirky tastes while the settings are as individual and poetic (take a peek at Jeanine Payer’s prose-laden styles) as can be.

Forevermark’s Diamond Expert Adelaide Polk-Bauman weighs in with the company’s 120 years of diamond expertise behind her, “A diamond engagement ring is one of the most important decisions in a couple’s life. It has such intense meaning and is very much an expression of personal style. A solitaire 1 carat diamond, which is the most popular size, is a classic look and works for many women because it is so classic. However, playing into this trend, we are now seeing a number of designers work with this style in new and fun ways.”

As the saying goes, size matters…but just not in the way you think.
