Top 6 Engagement Rings Trends

An engagement ring is a precious symbol of eternal love and commitment. It will rest on her finger to serve as a constant reminder of the love you two will share for the rest of your lives. Picking out the perfect engagement ring can be an overwhelming experience. That’s why we’ve come up with a list of the top 6 engagement ring trends that have been highly-coveted this past year. Each style reveals unique qualities that showcase distinctive personalities and aesthetics. King Jewelers understands that having a one-of-a-kind ring is important and we’re here to help you every step of the way.

Fancy-Shaped Diamonds

Fancy-shaped diamonds have become highly sought after this year. We have seen a long line of marriage proposals with the classic brilliant rounds and cushion-cut diamonds. However, more recently we have seen several brides swooning over classic solitaires with larger pear-shaped and marquise-shaped center stones. Much like the oval diamond, pear and marquise stones give the illusion of elongating the fingers. These modern shapes look stunning when set as a solitaire, framed by a halo, or accompanied by side stones. Therefore, you can create the ring that best fits your personality.

Large Solitaires

Recently, larger center stones in a solitaire setting have been more popular among modern brides. Solitaire rings bestow a classic elegance to the finger. The simplicity of a high-polished band leading up to a large center stone radiates a traditional sophistication. Solitaire engagement rings look iconic with a variety of different shaped diamonds or gemstones. A round brilliant diamond keeps the look conservative while switching to a fancy shape gives the ring an eccentric flair.  This style serves as a signature way to eliminate details in order to show off a gorgeous, ideal-cut diamond on full display.

Yellow Gold is Back

Another recent trend in the bridal world is yellow gold engagement rings. It’s time to move away from all the cool-toned white gold rings and welcome something a bit warmer. For the past 15 years, yellow gold was labeled as an “out-dated” metal color. Although, this past year has proven quite the opposite. Yellow gold engagement rings are becoming more prominent int he bridal world. Something about the contrast between a warm, high-polished gold band against a luminous white diamond is merely breathtaking.

Alternative Engagement Rings

The next engagement ring trend that we have discovered this year is the alternative style ring. This can mean a myriad of different things. For instance, alternative stones, such as blue sapphire and morganite add a unique pop of color to an otherwise traditional ring. On the other hand, delicate, floral-inspired rings, featuring fluid lines that lead to a contemporary-set center stone are breathtakingly beautiful as well. Adding a modern twist to a classic style ring creates a nostalgic, yet unique work of art that will last a lifetime.

Vintage Style Rings

Vintage style engagement rings engraved by hand have also been in higher demand in recent months. Bead-edge milgrain and other intricate designs serve as the framework of these art deco-inspired masterpieces. Small diamond details encompass an extravagant center stone to make up an eye-catching ring that reminds us of the regal aesthetic commonly seen during the roaring twenties. Each vintage style engagement ring is as exceptional as it is nostalgic. Oftentimes our master jewelers can craft these custom rings by hand to perfectly fit your personal style.

East-West Engagement Ring Settings

Finally, the most recent bridal trend that we’ve discovered is the east-west style ring. The east-west engagement ring takes an otherwise classic setting and places the center stone horizontally rather than vertically. This contemporary twist on traditional diamond rings immediately elongates the fingers and makes the stone appear larger. Commonly seen with emerald cuts, ovals, and marquise-shaped diamonds, this design is incredibly versatile. This engagement ring trend bestows you the freedom to create a ring that is distinctive to your style and individuality.
