So, things are getting serious…like engagement serious. And whether you’re hoping to be surprised or doing the shopping together, it’s always a good idea to give your soon-to-be fiancé(e) a nudge in the right direction. Just when we thought we’d seen it all, 2023 came along and these new ring styles are blowing us away! And is it just us or do the rocks just keep getting bigger and bigger? You won’t see us complaining…Let’s talk about some of our fave must-see brands for this year!
Does that ring look familiar? Well, it should because that’s the same ring that Matt used to propose to Colleen on the most recent season of Love Is Blind! No spoilers here, but just look at that ring, what do you think she said? Like their name says, they’re all about bridal jewelry (and they were one of the first!). The best part about shopping at a bridal-specific jeweler for your engagement ring is how easy it is to shop for the rest of your wedding jewelry–earrings, bands, etc. They make it a point to give every customer VIP personalized service and help them make the first investment toward their happily ever after with confidence and care. They carry all of your favorite designers as well as certified loose diamonds in case you want to go the custom route. And with Bridal Rings, custom costs less than you think! They use their industry experience and relationships to eliminate the middleman and offer their clients prices 30 to 70 percent below retail!
From timeless classics like this princess cut stunner to fashion-forward twists on some of your favorite styles, Simon G. has a variety like no other! But, what really sets them apart is their quality. All engagement rings should be heirloom quality, something that can be passed down and last generation after generation. That’s why, at Simon G., all of their diamonds are hand set and then inspected under microscopes by seasoned artisans. Each inspector has a separate discipline and part that they are responsible for checking: pavé, channel, or prong settings. Plus, they take one more step to ensure that your precious stones aren’t going anywhere–all of their diamonds are held in place by four prongs! They call it the “Simon Set” and this patented technology replicates the look of an invisible set while providing more security and protection for the diamonds. So while every diamond ring is beautiful, a ring from Simon G. can withstand the test of time.
One of California’s premier jewelers, Moyen & Co. was founded in 1981 and has been helping happy couples tie the knot in style since day one! They are always up on the latest styles like this beautiful solitaire that features a hidden halo (our fave trend for 2023). You can shop their amazing selection on their super easy-to-navigate website. Or, if you’re on the West Coast, you can set up an in-person appointment where they can even offer custom services! They’re conveniently located between LA and Santa Barbara.
Known for their sustainable and ethically superior lab-grown diamonds, 1-800 Loose Diamonds is where you want to go if you want to start designing your engagement ring from square one. Not only will you get a completely custom engagement ring that you can feel good about, but it can be yours for a fraction of the price of rings that use traditional mined diamonds! That means more $$$ in your pocket to put towards the wedding or a bigger rock (like this 2ct beauty that starts at just $2,085), we’re cool with both. Their experts will help you select everything from cut and shape to the setting. Shop online or in-store at their showroom in downtown LA and start creating your dream ring.
If you like the idea of a custom design, but don’t know where to start, Diamond & Design is the place for you! Wedding rings and custom bridal designs are their specialty. They’ll get to know you and your S.O. and help you design a ring that captures the essence of your love. They work with U.S. designers to ensure that every feature and facet of your ring meets the highest standards. Check out this incredible pear-shaped engagement ring–we’ve never seen anything quite like it!
