Top 10 Trending Modern Engagement Rings in 2021

Article by

As you know, we like to do things a little differently at MiaDonna, so what’s stopping our rebellious hearts from adding a twist to the traditional engagement ring? Well, nothing! A modern style is fun, sleek, and functional with a clean look. The majority of our modern styles are more sturdy and harder-wearing due to the fact that there are no small prongs that can get caught on clothing or other fabrics. Are you ready to dive in and get the spiel on modern engagement ring styles? We thought so.  


When hunting for an engagement ring you may be tempted to go with a simple solitaire, especially if you are shopping online. We are big fans of the traditional look, but if there is a little part of you that is looking for something different- lean into that instinct! Some of the rings featured here are still within the realm of traditional styles but with a little spunky attitude thrown in. In addition, if you have an active lifestyle, the bezel settings are a perfect option because your center stone is less at risk of knocking loose. So, with a modern ring, you can sweat and sparkle simultaneously without a worry in your mind.


Our lovely Brand Manager, Nicole, is a big enthusiast of our modern styles. Every day she rocks the Daci Engagement Ring as a right-hand ring, with a rose gold setting, and her reason for loving this ring is because the main focus is on the sparkle of her center stone. While some of the styles are sleek and minimalistic, other styles are bold and unique. We chose a variety of items we adore, there is even a turtle ring in here!




The Mod has an organic twist with a modern feel. Our Sales Manager, Justine, chose this ring as her favorite style, “It flows nicely, and has a unique bezel setting with a fun twist in the band.” We agree!
