The new year brings excitement and intrigue – as well as new engagement ring trends to keep your eye on. This year, we’re expecting to see a rise in ring styles that increase the uniqueness of a ring, making it more personalized, eye-catching, and mesmerizing. So, if you’re looking to propose – or hoping to be proposed to – see if one these trends is your ideal aesthetic.
1. Three Stones Are Better Than One: Tri-Stone Rings
Two heads are better than one. And, three stones are too. The three-stone ring dates back to the Georgian Era from 1714 to 1837, meaning this trend is a classic coming back into style. Modern versions of this trend allow for the side stones and the centre stones to have different cuts as well, furthering the distinction of these gorgeous engagement rings.
2. Mixing Metals: Two-Tone Settings
Two-tone settings combine two or more types of metals into one remarkable and unforgettable design. When combining warm and cool metals together offers an effortless style that can allow the iciness of a diamond pop. Beyond that, the combination of yellow, white, and rose golds offers a unique appearance that makes an engagement ring that can’t be missed.
3. A Different Diamond: Lab-Grown Diamonds
As more and more couples embrace lab-grown diamonds, more and more brands are offering engagement rings with diamonds from their lab-grown lines. This is leading to an increase in engagement rings with lab diamonds, which offers a stunning diamond at a lower cost point.
4. A Unique Twist: Rise of East-West Rings
Certain diamond cuts – radiants, emeralds, and ovals, in particular – are generally set vertically. An east-west ring sets those diamonds horizontally. This shift in design puts a modern spin on traditional diamond cuts, renewing the aesthetic of the ring in a vibrant and exciting way.
5. It’s All In The Details
Another trend on the rise are rings with surprise details. From hidden halos to small diamond accents, these often delicate engagement rings offer a captivating secret only to be revealed upon closer inspection. Choosing a ring with a small but wonderful surprise can make an engagement ring feel more unique and personalized.
6. Stand Out With Colour
Rubies, sapphires, emeralds, and other gemstones will be on the rise in 2024. Many couples are choosing to add colour to their engagement rings, either to make their engagement rings more unique or for a bit of personal expression in their engagement ring. Rings with colourful stones have also been popularized by such celebrities as Kristen Bell, Zoe Saldana, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Blake Lively, and Scarlett Johansson. If you’re looking for a way to increase the vibrancy of a ring, consider adding a colour stone as the centre piece or a side stone.Come See These Trends In-Store for Yourself
