Planning on popping the question this holiday season? With so many couples committing to each other between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, you’re in good company. But, getting engaged during the holidays means that the ring you pick has to be good enough for Santa and your future spouse.
According to Donna DePrisco, vice president and general manager of DePrisco Jewelers in Boston, while couples might come together to browse and get ideas, if you’re planning on surprising your soul mate, you won’t have to go it alone.

Don’t know where to start? We’ve got you covered with engagement ring ideas that are trendy yet timeless. Best of all, you can mix and match trends to find a ring that’s as unique as your love.
Halo rings, a cushion-cut stone with smaller bands of diamonds going down each side, are a major trend this year, according to DePrisco. These rings are opulent, romantic and detailed.
Pear-cut and oval shapes are taking over ring fingers this year. While an oval diamond is a more classic shape, pear-cut stones are a fashionable, more daring alternative that is also said to represent “tears of joy.”
If your intended has hinted at a colorful stone, you’re in luck. Many jewelers are hopping on the colorful diamond and gemstone trend, so you’ll have plenty of choices. From canary yellow diamonds to deep blue sapphires, you’ll buck tradition and maybe even create your own.
Rose gold is a new addition to engagement ring trends this year, for the bride who wants something unique, warm and just a little bit different. Rose gold is as sweet as its name, and makes a gorgeous setting for a clear or colorful stone.
