Engagement Ring Trends for 2020
Shopping for an engagement ring can be a bit overwhelming but before you start looking into the Four C’s, we suggest that you take a look at your soon-to-befiancée’s personal style as well as current engagement ring trends. Once you’ve narrowed down a style, our GIA-trained jewelry experts can walk you through the process of finding just the right diamond and setting to fit your budget.
Hidden Halo Engagement Rings
Halo engagement rings have been trending for years but hidden halo engagement rings are this year’s big trend. While the traditional halo can dominate a ring, hidden halo rings feature small diamonds set around the basket under the main diamond. From the top the ring looks like a solitaire but viewed from the side, the extra sparkle is a delightful surprise.
Rose Cut Diamond Engagement Rings
Rose cut diamonds were used widely in the 1500-1800’s and feature a flat bottom with a domed top, or smaller table than you may be accustomed to seeing. This shape gives the diamond a rosebud-like shape. These vintage cut diamonds often have a glassy appearance and while they may give off less sparkle than their flashy, brilliant cut counterparts, they tend to look larger than more modern cuts because of their flat bottom. Therefore, you may get more carat weight bang for your buck if you purchase a rose cut stone. Whether you choose a completely vintage engagement ring or choose to set a rose cut diamond in a custom engagement ring setting, these beautiful diamonds are a trend we can get on board with!
Vintage Engagement Rings
Whether you’re looking for the romance of a victorian piece or the understated flair of an art deco beauty, it seems vintage engagement rings are making a comeback. The intricate filigree, detailed milgrain work, and unique details make these pieces truly timeless. For those concerned about reducing their carbon footprint, what could be more environmentally friendly than giving a vintage engagement ring a new life and a new story? We love to help couples give new life to heirloom family pieces or find the perfect vintage engagement ring.
Three Stone Engagement Rings
Three stone engagement rings of all shapes and sizes have made a strong resurgence since Megan Markle debuted her stunning sparkle. This classic style is perfect for the sentimental bride as the stones traditionally symbolize the couples past, present, and future or friendship, love, and fidelity. Whether you choose a simple setting with three round brilliant diamonds or mix it up with oval or cushion cuts, the possibilities for customizing this traditional style are endless!
