NYBFW '18 Morilee Presents The Muse Collection By Madeline Gardner – Timeless, Elegant, Beautiful

Type of Center Stone: Will you choose the timeless traditional diamond engagement ring, or break the mold with a gorgeous colored gemstone? While diamonds continue to be the top choice, experts agree that 2018 will be the year of colored gemstone engagement rings with sapphire, morganite and aquamarine as favorites.

Stone Shape or Cut:  There are at least eight different shapes of diamonds and gemstones. Which shape looks best can be affected by finger shape and size.  Round diamond center stones are the most popular choice for engagement rings. Oval and pear cut stones will emerge as two of the most sought after shapes this year.

Stone Carat Size: A carat, equal to 200 milligrams, is used to measure the weight of diamonds and gemstones.  Smaller carat sizes make for a more delicate look, while larger sizes tend to be flashy, statement-making pieces.

Metal Color: Will you choose yellow, white or rose gold for your band? Cool skin tones tend to favor white gold, the most popular metal, while yellow gold flatters warmer skin tones. Rose gold, a pink hued metal that compliments all skin tones, is trending now.  Custom designs, incorporating new mixed metal colors, are also on the rise.
