popular social media sites like Instagram and Pinterest have dramatically transformed the engagement and wedding landscape. From lavish wedding gowns, hair and makeup inspiration and gorgeous bridesmaid outfits to pre-wedding photoshoot ideas, stunning engagement ring designs, and adorable DIY invitations, there is something for everyone.

What’s more, guys can now step up their proposal game too by following these burgeoning social media trends for some quick inspiration or food for thought.

For instance, this custom-made Rose Gold ring is making headlines right now, for being the most popular engagement ring in the world, according to MailOnline.

Here, have a look…

Owned by Pinterest user Sylvia Billone, the Art Deco style ring has been saved 103,900 times on the visual bookmarking site.

The stunning piece of jewellery that has taken the Internet by storm, has a classic solitaire and a thin rose gold band which makes the ring simple yet elegant, with a timeless appeal.

“The solitaire ring is 1.22 karats with a two-millimeter-width rose gold band,” explained Sylvia Billone in a Sun report.

Interestingly, rose gold jewellery is all the rage right now

This is mainly because the soft and subtle rose hue flatters all kinds of skin tones.

Furthermore, latest Pinterest trends show that more and more people are opting for coloured gemstones like sapphire, ruby, and emerald instead of conventional diamond rings.

Last year, the engagement ring that reigned supreme was the ‘Verragio Venetian’ ring. Designed by American jewelers Raymond Lee, the dazzling rock was pinned over 63,000 times on the social curation website.

Priced at £3,360), the 18-carat white gold ring featured a princess-cut diamond and lace embellishments.

Popping the big question

In case you’re a loved-up lad who is planning to pop the question any time soon, you might want to know how a “perfect proposal” should be made?

According to a poll, the big question should be asked at a nearby landmark while getting down on one knee, ideally after 25 months of courtship.

The research was commissioned by luxury British jewellery brand, Mappin & Webb.

The poll that surveyed 2,000 unmarried women also highlighted that the most popular type of ring is the one with a solitaire cut diamond on a white gold band, costing around £1,000.

Moreover, the proposal should be made around winter or the Christmas period, the study revealed.
