A new year can mean a variety of things, depending on who you talk to. Resolutions. Turning over a new leaf. Looking forward to the future. For many couples, that may mean getting engaged. If you’re one of those couples, knowing the trends when it comes to engagement rings can help you make sure you get the perfect ring for your special someone.
This doesn’t mean you have to get a trendy ring style that everyone is buying. Engagement rings are extremely personal to each future bride. But knowing the most popular styles for 2020 will get the ideas flowing and help you find a ring that blends a trend with exactly what your beloved wants.
Unique and Colourful
Designers are certainly embracing unique styles for engagement rings in the new year. Coloured stones are more popular than ever. Many women are wearing rings with aquamarine and garnet. Some are choosing to use their birthstones in their engagement rings.
As for coloured diamonds, it’s no longer just pink or yellow, either. Gray diamonds—also known as salt and pepper—are on the rise. Their imperfections and spots create a speckled effect, and their shades can vary from light to dark.
Stones aren’t the only thing getting colourful when it comes to engagement rings. The rose gold trend is making its way to the ring finger. The romanticism of the pink color appeals to many women, and designers are using the metal more and more in their ring settings. Some women are pairing it with another trend—mixing metals—and using white or yellow gold for their wedding bands.
Another trend that continues to rise in popularity is multi-stone engagement rings—particularly three stones, thanks to the ring that Prince Harry gave to Meghan Markle. Three-stone rings are meant to represent past, present, and future, or today, tomorrow, forever. You can put your own twist on it by using coloured gems for the side stones.
For those who prefer one stone, the halo engagement ring is still trending going into 2020. Encircling a diamond with smaller ones gives the center stone a larger appearance. The halo is also making its way into another trend: floral-inspired rings. Whether the center stone is a diamond or another color, a floral shaped halo is a unique, feminine look. Several celebrities have donned floral halo rings in recent months.
Of course, many brides prefer a solitaire diamond. Trending into 2020, solitaires are being set into simpler bands. This is especially popular with bigger diamonds, as it gives the stone a chance to shine on its own. Some designers are even swapping out traditional bands for thinner ones to maximize the effect and give the classic solitaire ring style a more modern vibe.
