Fashion is ever-changing and as time goes by, trends in the jewellery world evolve as well. This is especially true for engagement rings. From popular new styles making their presence known to older styles remerging, if one thing is certain, each year brings an array of different popular engagement rings.
Wondering what styles are predicted to be a hit this year? Keep reading to discover what engagement rings we expect to see popular in 2022.
Recently, there has been a real trend of vibrant coloured stones used in engagement ring designs. Many brides currently favour colour, opting for a striking gemstone to substitute the classic white diamond. Considered unique and unconventional, engagement rings with a coloured stone are ideal for the modern-day bride looking to stray from the tradition.
Rather than a diamond, sapphires and rubies especially are being shown a lot of love at the moment. This is predicted to continue throughout the new year, coinciding with the Art Deco style that is making a comeback. This vintage fashion style is known for using eccentric stones and geometric patterns. It often features coloured stones to make a statement piece.
A great example of this is sapphire engagement rings. Bold and full of character, sapphire designs can range from modern and sophisticated to vintage Art Deco-inspired pieces.
Over the years, popular diamond shapes such as round and oval have seen an influx of popularity. Now, the tides are shifting. While common shapes are still a favourite, many brides are beginning to desire an alternative fancy cut that is uncommon.
The answer? Marquise diamonds!
Expected to increase in popularity, the marquise diamond is a contender in engagement ring trends for the coming year. While it has origins dating back to the 18th century, it is a distinctive diamond shape rarely spotted in modern-day times.
Marquise diamonds have a flattering shape with a thin but lengthy elliptical silhouette with pointed ends. Its long and narrow outline resembles lips. Our Elegant Marquise with Round Brilliant Halo is the ultimate choice for those looking for a glamorous marquise design.
Rings with Multi-Diamond Cuts
As a new rising quirky trend, rings with more than one diamond cut are making their mark on the engagement ring industry. While diamond solitaire rings are a timeless classic, rings involving multiple diamond cuts are surging in popularity and are expected to continue to be a favourite throughout 2022.
A mix of abstract and simplicity, these rings generally feature multiple stones rather than a single solitaire, all individual and distinctively different with their respective shapes. While this is a popular choice in trilogy designs, it is also a good option for those combining a modern stone with an heirloom diamond.
The art of displaying a new diamond with an older different cut diamond is seen in ring designs known as ‘Toi Et Moi’. Often seen in this trend, one of the stones is tilted to the side, displaying an unusual but striking design. Leading this trend, singer Ariana Grande’s and model Emily Ratajkowski proudly wear this engagement ring style.
