Gwyneth Paltrow Debuts What Appears to Be a Second Engagement Ring

Gwyneth Paltrow enjoys doing things a little differently than the rest of the world. She consciously uncouples and doesn’t throw engagement parties, but rather, “celebration of our love” parties that one might mistake for a secret wedding. It only makes sense, then, that she would forgo the typical diamond ring for an engraved gold ring bearing the initials of her fiancé, Brad Falchuk.

Paltrow had initially debuted her engagement ring, featuring a large blue stone, at the Producers Guild Awards in January. On Wednesday night at the Head Over Heelsopening in San Francisco, it had been replaced with the new, engraved ring.

The classics will always be the classics, but what can those who crave the unexpected expect in an engagement ring in 2018?

For a little guidance, Glamour went to the pros—Eva Zuckerman, designer of Eva Fehren fine jewelry; Gurki Basra, senior buyer of jewelry and watches at Barneys New York; and Katherine Kim, designer of KatKim fine jewelry—to give us an idea of this year’s biggest alternative engagement ring trends, as well as to shed some light on the drift toward eschewing tradition as it pertains to bridal jewelry.

The 2018 engagement ring motto: Anything goes. Kim says she’s noticed a recent shift toward stone cuts that might've once been considered unusual for bridal jewelry, such as trillion, marquise, and pear shapes. The same goes for stone types, as gray diamonds have started to emerge as a trend. She's not the only one to note this: “I have seen more adventurous, modern, and exciting choices from our clients," says Zuckerman.
