So what are the biggest and unexpected engagement-ring trends of 2018 so far? We asked Theresa Bruno, founder of Jordan Alexander, and Shelley Brown of The Knot, for their expertise when it comes to the coolest trends they’re seeing couples wear now.

“I am so intrigued by where bridal is going—more and more we get requests for elegant, understated, and something unusual,” Bruno shares. The designer feels a kinship with those who choose her unique leaf designs as well.
