Do all those fashion and bridal blogs and magazines REALLY know what’s popular? Maybe on the coasts, but do they know what plays in Peoria and Central Illinois?  Well, the REAL diamond experts at Bremer Jewelry know. At least, we know what we SOLD ya’ll haha. If you got engaged in 2018, chances are you’re wearing a version of the following top-selling styles:

#5 Woven

The perfect way to symbolize two lives forever intertwined. Woven-style rings can come in the form of slip knots, like the Simon G. beauty above, or twists, as seen below.

#4 Classic Halo

Central Illinois is a smitten with this class round halo style. With or without side stones, a round halo makes that diamond look a little bit bigger and provides loads of gorgeous sparkle.

Bremer Jewelry “BeLoved” 14k Rose Gold Diamond Engagement Ring with center stone (BSMC08066) – $3,495


#3 Fancy Cuts with Fancy Halos

 

Nope, a halo doesn’t have to be round! Halos with alternative shapes have become quite popular in Central Illinois and it’s not surprising. Ovals, cushions, and squares are an easy way to make a diamond look bigger and give that ring a distinctive look that will stand out in a sea of round. Take the Hearts On Fire style above for example – totally swoon-worthy! Here are some of our other best sellers:

#2 Classic Solitaire

 

The solitaire engagement ring conveys a powerful message in a very subtle and unexaggerated way. It’s popularity undoubtedly stems from the fact that it will never go out of style or look dated. Many couples are choosing to skip the side stones and put that money into a better quality or bigger center diamond! The ring shown above has been our top selling solitaire setting in 2018 and here are some other favorites:

#1 Solitaire with Straight Shank Sparkle

Boom, there is is – Central Illinois’ favorite engagement ring style of 2018! The round diamond solitaire with sparkle on the side. What does this say about us as a people? We think it means we like things simple and pragmatic, but SPARKLY. We want our engagement rings to look as fabulous 25 years from now as they do today (’cause we’re in it for the long haul). We prefer timeless pieces we can add to later (stacking anniversary bands!).  We’re not afraid of tradition, yet we’re happy to embrace a bit of flair. It also means we weren’t born yesterday – we know those 58 facets can deliver top SPARKLE.  Y’all have been ga-ga for the rose gold version above and here are a few more that have been flying out the door:

 

Bremer Jewelry “BeLoved” 14k White Gold Diamond Engagement Ring Setting (BSM16014) – $2,545 (without center stone)
