When it comes to jewelry, few things are more modern than mixing metals. While the fashion-forward bride isn't afraid to mix metals in her bridal stack, opting for one (or two) wedding bands in contrasting hues, mixed metal engagement rings are also rising in popularity for reasons that range from practical—dialing up the wow factor of the diamond—to personal style—making a unique, head-turning statement.
Those familiar with our Whisper Thin engagement ring know we use platinum prongs (no matter the band material) to let the diamond really shine and sparkle, making it appear as if it's floating on the finger. With our Hidden Halo iteration, the diamond sits within its platinum prongs, its base encircled by a sparkling secret halo also set in platinum. For the bride looking for metal-mixing of the less subtle variety, try mixing platinum prongs with a rose gold band (with coordinating pink diamonds) or a brilliant gold bezel (showcasing a yellow diamond) with a platinum pavé band.
