Twice as Nice
A chic alternative to classic solitaire and three-stone engagement styles, the two-stone diamond ring is emerging as an in-demand style for modern brides. Blame it on the recent swell of innovative two-stone designs from fashion-forward bridal brands that boast bold elements such as open shanks and asymmetrically set stones. (We’re looking at you, Anita Ko, KatKim, and Bario Neal!) Double the fun, indeed.

Make With Tradition
Toronto-based designer Anne Sportun has been creating alternative engagement rings featuring colored gems for decades. But her latest bridal collection is a detour into more classic territory. The 11-piece line includes a handful of finished rings (among them: two cocktail-size styles that boast stunning rose-cut colored stones). And there are even more feminine-feeling halo mounts—modern heirlooms with vintage hallmarks such as milgrain, pavé-set shanks, and scalloped edges.
