Your choice of engagement ring is incredibly personal, and one that many women consider for the years leading up to the big moment. While this may be so, there certainly isn’t anything wrong in getting some inspiration from your favourite celebrities and the trends they spark with their own rings. This is particularly helpful if you are unsure as to where to get started, or want to send your partner some ideas before they get down on one knee themselves.
Take a look at what we believe will be the biggest engagement ring trends for 2020 to kickstart your search.
Oval shaped diamonds
Favoured by celebrities such as Hailey Bieber and Blake Lively, more brides-to-be are requesting an elegant oval shaped diamond. This style is elegant and timeless, but is definitely becoming a more popular choice for 2020. With so many beautiful celebrities boasting this style of ring, it’s not hard to see why. They’re also flattering on the finger, making the hands appear more slender. What’s not to love?
Thin, dainty bands
Rather than opting for something very much ‘in your face’, as it were, it seems that more people are choosing beautifully slender bands. Not only does it exude daintiness, but it makes the diamond really stand out. It’s worth heading into the Diamonds Factory showroom to try on different bands as this will help you figure out what type of ring will actually suit you. What’s perfectly slender for some may look too fragile on another person’s hand, so it’s well worth trying some different sized bands out to find the perfect fit for you and discover your preferred style of diamond.
Three diamond rings
A single diamond is the traditional choice, but 2020 is the year for rings with three stones. We can explain the rise of popularity on the stylish Meghan Markle, who has been seen sporting her beautiful ring since her engagement to Prince Harry. You may think a ring with three stones could look excessive, but you can choose two smaller stones that frame a larger centre diamond. The three stones are thought to represent the past, present and future of your relationship, making it a personal choice beyond the trend.
With a blush pink hue, rose gold has always been a top choice for those who want to combine a classically shaped diamond with a more modern band. If you’re daring to mix things up and stray from tradition without going overboard, a rose gold setting is a wonderful choice. This style was a huge trend a couple of years ago, but it saw another rise in popularity in 2019 that we predict will continue into 2020. Who can resist this lush pale pink toned gold? Certainly not us or the many celebrities that flaunt them.
When framed by platinum, coloured diamonds and gemstones offer a burst of radiance. They instantly grab the eye without being over the top, and put a contemporary spin on all styles of ring. As well as looking incredibly striking, coloured stones are often used to represent the wearer’s birthday or personality. This allows you to put an even more personal spin on the proposal and express your style wherever you go.
If you’re unsure as to where to start your search for the perfect engagement ring, try out some of the above trends. This helps to rule out the things you don’t like and what your preferences are – you may surprise yourself and stray from what you first imagined.
