Trend Alert: East-West Engagement Rings

We at love all kinds of engagement rings, from the traditional to the minimalist to the ornate. We also like how engagement rings, despite having been around for hundreds of years, are constantly being changed and updated. They’re certainly not immune to exciting and fashionable new styles.

One of our favorite trends that we’ve observed in the bridal game lately is east-west engagement rings. Rather than the center stone being oriented up and down (or north-south), the stone in an east-west ring is oriented horizontally. recently published a great piece by our good friend Kim Fusaro about this hot new trend. We thought we’d share some of our favorite rings that feature east-west moissanite center stones.

Pear cuts are becoming more and more popular, and this is a particularly stunning east-west example. The feather pattern on the band adds a whimsical and delicate touch to this lovely ring.
