The Engagement Ring Style That's Here to Stay, According to Nikki Reed

Regardless if we're on the cusp of getting engaged or not, there's something romantic about bridal culture in general that deeply appeals to us: wanderlust venues, inspiring tablescapes, gorgeous dresses and suits, and, of course, the bling. There is much ado when it comes to choosing an engagement ring—the metal, stone, shape, setting; it's an ever-evolving industry that runs the gamut of timely trends and classic go-to's. That's why we're always excited to learn about new brands and collections hence the subject of today's feature.

Nikki Reed's lifestyle company, BaYou With Love, recently released its first-ever assortment of engagement rings, and they are, simply put, breathtaking. The rings are made with 18-karat gold recycled from tech (!) and feature cultivated diamonds grown in California as well as ethically mined sapphires. In other words, they're sustainable and stunning. We tapped Reed to find out more about this release; scroll down to read our Q&A with the celebrity designer, and if you're in the market (congrats!), shop your favorite engagement ring.
