Near the conclusion of 2015 we predicted the upcoming trends in engagement rings for the following year. At Knox Jewelers, tuned our trend radar in a large part through customer requests for custom engagement rings and wedding bands. One of those predictions, the mix metals trend, has had numerous requests as of late and is staying true to course as a favorite of 2016. Mixing metals is more popular than ever before in the bridal jewelry scene, especially now when mix-matched stacked wedding bands are in vogue. Most brides-to-be seem to be in the mind-set of ‘why choose one metal when you can have two shades, and while we are at it throw in a colored gemstone’. Blending engagement ring and wedding band tones creates a unique look, making your ring exclusive to you, and setting your rings apart from one another as well.
Your wedding band should be as one-of-a-kind as your engagement ring and your relationship, as it reflects your future and commitment. Today in the bridal scene there seems to be no room for traditions or rules when it comes to wedding bands. Mixing metals could be the perfect way to make your band stand out against your perfect engagement ring, and give it a life of its own. There are so many ways to make your engagement ring and wedding band distinctive, but color is always a great way to demonstrate your unique bridal style.
You may think that the cool allure of white gold and platinum clashes with the warm tones of rose gold and yellow gold, but paired right, they can offer a winning combination. The renewal of the mix metal trend is growing at such a fast pace for good reasons. Combination metal engagement rings offer many more styling possibilities and it allows you numerous options when it comes to selecting your wedding band or multiple bands. On a more important note, mixed metal rings alleviate the stress and hinder the mindset of having to match all of your other jewelry for the rest of your life to shade of your bridal set.
There are many eye-catching ways to create a two tone look within your engagement ring or wedding band pairings. There are bold, elaborate mix metal wide bands to subtle hints of color, like the addition of color contrasting filigree curls. One very popular interpretation of the trend it to create a shaded diamond halo that differs from the rest of the ring, to draw attention to and highlight your center stone. Multiple band engagement ring, like our Fireworks Design, are brought into a whole new light when one band is featured in a warm shade of gold. If a small amount of two-tone is all you are ready for, try slight alterations, like colored center prongs, yellow or rose gold filigree curls or a colored contrasting center bezel.
Two Tone Engagement Rings
Contrasting Halo Rings
Two Tone Wide Bands
The two tone trend is not just for bridal sets, we have had just as many, or more, requests for gents wedding bands created in contrasting colors. Bold bands can be created by pairing warmer rose and yellow golds with sleek platinum or white gold. Any of our custom wedding bands can be altered to be features in a two tone look.
Rose Gold Gents Bands
Yellow Gold Gents Bands
We can help you custom create anything you have in mind when it comes to your mixed palette of rings and bands. Mixing metals is a modern and fashionable way to express your style and a easy way to set your bands apart in a crowd. If you are so inclined, we can even custom create rings in three tones, like our newest wide band ring Tiara. As you can see below, colored gemstones are also a way to upgrade a custom design from the ordinary.
Metals color is only one of the ways to can help you make your ring or band into a one-of-a-kind creations. All of our finishing details are created by hand, so things like engraving, filigree, milgrain and side diamonds can add to the final look of a two toned creation. There are plenty of ways to play with engagement ring and wedding band traditions but interpret them in your special way.
Here at Knox Jewelers, we tend to see all of our custom created design as miniature works of art. While some ring’s attractiveness can not be denied with their intricate detailing and elaborate silhouettes. Others deliver a powerful statement of beauty with their subtle simplicity and clean lines.

With metal selections, setting styles and rows of stacked wedding and anniversary bands, your ring can stand out from every other. A custom created engagement ring solitaire can be elegant and simple, as well as unique to you.

The uncomplicated design allows the focus to remain on the brilliance and beauty of whatever center stone you hand pick to be featured within its four prongs. The Classic Solitaire is timeless, elegant and a great blank canvas to display a one-of-a-kind diamond or colored sapphire.

By trying out gemstone and metal pairings distinct to you, you may discover a subtle variation on a classic style that perfectly represent you and your relationship. Listed below are solitaire engagement rings grouped by differing center stone setting styles, which would be an important determining factor is the final look of your custom design. Any of the designs listed below, or any others featured on our website, can be crafted in your preferred precious metal and custom fitted around the center stone of your choosing.
Four Prong Solitaires
Four prong settings are the traditional approach to the solitaire engagement ring. Four prongs cover the minimal amount of your center stone, allowing more of the gemstone to be seen face-up. A kite set diamond, like the center image, is a variation on the four prong setting that rotates the prongs 45 degrees. This alteration offers a less ‘square’ look.
Multiple Prong Solitaires
Six or eight prong settings enhance the ’round’ look of a center stone and offer extra security compared to their four prong counterparts.
Double Prong Solitaires
Choosing four double-prongs to hold your center stone adds a regal vintage inspired look to any solitaire engagement ring.
Full Bezel Solitaires
A full bezel center setting is a very modern addition to a solitaire engagement ring. In a bezel setting, there are no prongs, instead a thin band of precious metal surrounds the center gemstone. This setting style is growing in popularity for its sleek look and contemporary feel. This setting style is extremely secure, as the center stone is completely enclosed. It can also allow for low-set engagement rings.
Half Bezel Solitaries
A half bezel center setting is the perfect compromise of elegance and security. A half bezel solitaire is still encompassed part way by smooth edges of metal but the center stone is not completely enclosed. A half bezel can be featured in may ways, straight or twisted like the images below.
