Just like fashion and clothing, trends change in jewellery too. Diamond engagement rings are no stranger to this either. Every couple of years there are changes in the taste of the masses. While multi-stone and solitaire rings remained the leading styles in the past few years, there is a certain shift observed by experts in the current market. Needless to say, these trends are heavily inspired by celebrities and influential figures.
According to a forecast by jewellery experts, there’s going to be a major influence of the following styles in diamond engagement rings. So, pay attention if you are planning to propose in the coming year!
Thanks to Meghan Markle, more and more women are incorporating heirlooms in their engagement rings. Inspired by the historical ring worn by Kate Middleton, Prince Harry had a customized ring made with a centre stone taken from his late mother’s personal collection and two smaller diamonds. A great way to use “something old” right?
Again the credit goes to the royalty, for bringing vintage styles back into fashion. When Kate Middleton was seen rocking the much-loved and popular sapphire ring of the late Princess Diana, it inspired many fans to want something similar. Classic timeless styles have come back with a bang. Halo settings with coloured stones or white diamonds are one of the most popular designs currently.
Usually, engagement rings go on the left hand while wedding bands are worn on the right. This trend is also changing. Nowadays more and more couples are turning towards similar engagement and wedding rings so that they can be worn together. A common trend that is catching on lately is pairing eternity rings with pave diamond engagement rings so that both look dazzling and luxurious together. Why not? Replacing a plain wedding band with an eternity-style ring brings out a certain aura of luxury.
In the past few years, white gold and platinum were the popular choices in diamond engagement rings. However, as mentioned before, traditional classic styles are coming back. So goes with classic metals as well. Yellow gold brings out the much-loved 80-90s vibe. No wonder women are turning to the precious timeless look of yellow gold.
There is more awareness in the masses now regarding the environmental impact of diamond mining which is why many are considering synthetic or lab-grown diamonds. These diamonds are cheaper and no less in quality than natural diamonds. These are better in quality in fact since the conditions of origin can be controlled. Many elite jewellers are now entering the market of man-made diamonds since the demand is growing more so.
