Engagement Ring Trends

Engagement rings are a timeless symbol of love and an expression of your unique, everlasting bond. In recent seasons, couples have been embracing unique engagement ring designs to express their own style and relationship. It’s no longer one size fits all, that’s why it is so valuable to sit down with a jewellery designer and chat about how they can realise your engagement ring vision.

If you’re looking for inspiration for the perfect expression of your love, look no further. We have compiled some of the most popular engagement ring trends below.


Trilogy Rings

Trilogy rings have garnered a lot of attention since the engagement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. This understated and elegant style is suited to romantics, with the three stones being said to represent the couple’s past, present and future.

Pear Shaped Stones

It’s clear to see why these beauties have been on trend recently.  Pear shaped diamonds offer the opportunity for a lot of customisation and differentiation. They look stunning with a halo of smaller diamonds, or with a diamond lined band.  If sleek and simple is more your style, they are also suited to being a solitaire feature, as they create a slimming, elegant effect.

Diamond Alternatives

The rarity of diamonds gives them the perfect symbolism in an engagement ring, however many couples are choosing to individualise their design with non-traditional stones. To name a few, Killiecrankie diamonds, tourmaline, Argyle Cognac diamond and sapphires have become popular choices.  Using a diamond alternative as the centrepiece on a more traditional or vintage style can be an effective way of elevating the design with a modern twist.

Halo

Halo diamond rings are highly sought after and there’s no secret as to why.  They offer eye-catching brilliance and a timeless vintage feel.  They are also vastly customisable in terms of the size and colour.

Rose gold has become a go-to choice of setting for many jewellery lovers over recent years. It is beloved for its warm, feminine and romantic hue, not to mention the way it compliments alternative stones such as tourmaline.
