The Bypass Ring Trend

It’s a style that has been around since at least the 1830s, but most of us have probably never noticed the elegant, yet twisted style wrapped around our friend’s finger, until the last couple of years when the bypass ring became a growing trend.

PAST

The bypass ring became popular during the Victorian era. The ring was giving to the woman as an engagement ring, symbolizing two souls coming together as one. The popularity of the two different colored stones during that era also added to the symbolization of two coming together.

One of the most famous bypass rings dates back to the 1950s. John F. Kennedy proposed to the then, Jacqueline Bouvier, with a beautiful 2-carat diamond and 2-carat emerald bypass ring tapered with baguettes. The design by Van Cleef & Arpels, is still replicated to this day. The ring can be seen in the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum.
