Bridal, May 2018: The Two-Stone Ring Trend & More

TREND GAME

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.

CAN’T-MISS COLLECTION

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.
