The ‘Upside-Down’ Engagement Ring Trend We Didn’t See Coming


More and more brides are breaking with tradition in favor of what feels truly personalized and unique – jumpsuits, doughnut walls, live llama décor, and now upside-down engagement rings. Yep, fine jewelry retailer Brilliant Earth says this inverted style is one of its most popular engagement rings. We were totally surprised, too. But now that we’ve looked into the trend, we’re thinking twice about our cushion-cut preference. Here are five upside-down engagement rings we’re totally loving.
