Proposal Season Continues in Color

Proposal season isn’t over yet! If you’re still looking at engagement rings, consider a colored stone! Colored, gemstones have actually been a popular pick this proposal season. Instead of the traditional diamond, these stones tend to be trendy and less expensive! Go ahead – be different!

Ringing in the New Year

The Patchettes hope everyone had an awesome time ringing in the New Year this weekend! In addition to marking the New Year, these winter months are often known as “engagement season.” We’ve certainly see a ton of exciting proposals pop up on our social media pages. It’s really such a magical time, filled with family and warmth. What better time to propose? While we’re getting prepared for wedding season, it has been so fun to focus on the stunning rings that we’re seeing online and in the store too. Here’s a few engagement ring trends that the Patchettes have noticed and are predicting to be popular in 2017!

Trend Tuesday: Stacked Engagement Rings!

At The Dandelion Patch, we’re lucky enough to be surrounded by cheerful, blushing brides! We also see lots of sparkling engagement rings. The engagement ring is often the first signal of a bride’s style – traditional, trendy, modern, or romantic! 

Stacked engagement rings are a trend that we’re currently swooning over. This look includes multiple wedding bands that pair together to create one shape, normally centered around the engagement ring! If you’re loving this look, you’ll definitely want to check out designer Anna Sheffield for her creative ring stacks.

While stacked rings are super trendy, we also love that their reminiscent of art deco shapes and vintage lines! Would you consider a stacked engagement ring? Yes, it’s probably a decision for your significant other, but who said you can’t drop a few hints?

Share your opinions with us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. We’d love to know what you think about this Tuesday Trend!
