Trend Alert: Bypass Rings

Nov 6, 2015

Unlike typical ring bands, bypass bands don’t meet at the same point; instead, they curve above or below the midpoint of the center stone. There’s something to be said about bypass ring styles that makes them so contemporary and chíc. Perhaps it’s the flowing lines, or maybe the way they draw the eye to the featured gemstone. Either way, we’re fans. The images shown below, present seven of our favorite bypass looks featuring the brilliance and beauty of moissanite.
